High-definition movie and multi-channel music soundtracks demand a high-performance surround speaker. The Ultra Surround Speakers rise to the challenge, delivering immersive and thrilling surround sound effects rivaling the finest commercial cinemas. Finished in premium-grade piano gloss black and real black oak veneer, and featuring compact driver arrays with 45-degree baffles and a shallow cabinet depth, the Ultra Surround line integrates seamlessly into any upscale home theater.
Unique and Flexible Surround Sound Modes
For the ultimate in flexibility, the Ultra Surround can operate in three different surround sound modes:
Bipole - both sets of drivers in phase
Dipole mode - both sets of drivers out of phase
Duet mode - each set of drivers receives a discrete signal
Duet mode creates two separate speakers within one cabinet, allowing true 7-channel surround sound with just two surround speakers instead of the more common four. Duet mode is very useful for enthusiasts who want to experience discrete 7-channel surround sound, but who lack the space for a separate set of rear surround speakers.
The Ultra Surround Speakers also feature integral aluminum wall mounting brackets, with safety catch features that help prevent the speakers from being inadvertently dislodged.
Dramatic Styling Yields Sonic Benefits
The stylish Ultra Surround cabinet design yields numerous sonic benefits. The non-parallel cabinet panels reduce standing waves within the cabinet, effectively eliminating frequency response coloration. The wedge-shaped front baffles and flush-mounted drivers reduce edge diffraction and improved on-axis high frequency response. Even the grille design is FEA-optimized to maximize acoustic transparency.
SVS Drivers Extreme Performance and Uncompromised Fidelity
The proprietary SVS drivers utilize the finest materials and design features to ensure the highest sound quality and performance. The Ultra Surround driver array features dual 1” aluminum dome tweeter and a 5.5” woofer.
Dual 1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter
Utilizes an FEA-optimized diffuser that delivers a very open 'airy' presentation and extremely unveiled highs
Delivers a soundstage so pure and free of artifacts that you'll swear the performers are in the room
Dual 5.5” Woofer
Delivers excellent midrange detail and radiated sound power with surprisingly punchy bass response
Composite glass-fiber cone with excellent stiffness/mass ratio that improves sensitivity and maintains pistonic behavior well beyond the pass-band of the driver
Vented voice coil former to minimize air compression artifacts at high drive levels
Aluminum shorting ring to reduce gap inductance, lower distortion, and improve high frequency response
Cast aluminum basket to ensure precise alignment of critical components and enhance heat-sinking capacity
SoundMatch Crossover Intelligently Designed for Your Listening Room
The Ultra Surround features dual isolated crossover networks to allow for bipole, dipole, or the unique Duet operating modes. The SoundMatch 2-way crossover features premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors, and heavy-trace printed circuit boards to ensure pure signal transmission. Careful selection of the crossover frequency and slopes results in outstanding total radiated sound power.

I had what I thought were decent surround speakers although they cost much less than these. I was very skeptical that an expensive speaker would make that much of a difference in sound for the surrounds. I went with SVS because I already have 2 of their subwoofers that I love and the side speakers were on sale for black Friday. I was absolutely stunned at how much better these sounded than what I had before. I felt completely immersed in the sound. There is obviously more sound that comes out of the surrounds then I thought there was. I highly recommend these speakers. Even the way you hang them is easy and innovative.
I recently purchased a pair of SVS Ultra Surround speakers from the Outlet to replace my 15 year old side surround speakers in my 5.2.4 system. The old surround speakers did not voice match well with the Ultra Towers and Center and the Prime Elevations. With Ultra Surrounds installed, the soundscape is now cohesive and precise when watching 4K movies with surround sound. The clarity of the soundscape is amazing. My surround system is now completely upgraded with SVS speakers and subwoofers. I’m so pleased with my SVS sound system.
I replaced some older surround speakers that had a rather colored sound and were not quite up to par with the rest of my HT system. Wow. I played material that put some volume into the surrounds in order to evaluate their sound. The sound was very natural, rich and detailed. No complaints. Not only that, but the fit and finish looks every bit as good as the product pictures. Glad I upgraded to these.
Beautiful speakers that sounds just as good as they look
I got these speakers to replace old bookshelf speakers in the rear channels of my 5.1.4 system and the first thing I noticed was the exceptional wide sound it spreads around the back of the room. Despite only having 2 speakers in the back and sides of the room it felt like sound was all around me! The quality of the sound is phenomenal as well, very very crisp and detailed, amazing for movies and music as well, can go pretty deep, and these speakers are absolutely beautiful! They can be configured several different ways to work for different systems and each can even operate as 2 separate speakers. SVS customer service is the best in class, I've had a wonderful experience with everyone I've spoken with, they are a phenomenal company, a truly rare find, and the value of these speakers, especially if from the outlet or sale, is second to none! I've tried literally dozens of speakers for my setup before deciding with these from brands like kef to martin logan, monitor audio, and triangle, and nothing near the price of the SVS ultras is even comparable. I have no complaints at all about these speakers and if they are in your budget for surround speakers, definitely give them a try!
I’ve had my M&K THX-150 7.1 system for nearly 20 years of remarkable audio pleasure. When my Subwoofer died. I bought the SVS PB-2000 and became an overnight convert! I’m now replacing all legacy speakers, beginning with these Ultra Surrounds. From the packaging materials to the craftsmanship and - most importantly- the incredible sound quality, my SVS Ultra Surround pair are a huge improvement over the M&K Tripoles that I’ve retired. I can’t wait to order my Ultra Left, Right and Center channels this summer! Mark S. Austin, TX
Great addition to my Ultra Towers and Center Channel
I went from in ceiling rear speakers to these surrounds and the difference is amazing! I am hearing so many new sounds that just didn't come thru on my old speakers. The clarity / quality is great (typical SVS). Thanks SVS!
Still letting them break in. Finish is amazing. Sound is amazing as well. You can't go wrong with SVS speakers. Absolutely love the ultra towers. Have the ultra center, two prime centers which are my rear surrounds, two ultra surrounds as my side surrounds, four prime elevations as my Dolby atmos and nothing against the elevations but really can't hear any overhead from my movies. I have the PB 4000 and to be honest hardly ever use it with the ultra towers. Everything is powered by a Denon x6700h avr. I don't have a large area so really don't need another amp right now. Another little tidbit I have all grills on all my speakers only time they come off is to wipe down dust, guess what no pushed in voice coils. I outgrew the showing off my speakers years ago. Nothing worse then walking in someone's house and having to see those gaudy copper looking speakers. Now having said all this realize one thing, this is my opinion not everybody else's.
