Ultra Tower Speaker

At SVS, beauty is never just skin-deep. The Ultra Tower Speaker delivers a deep and detailed soundstage with incredible resolution, absolute transparency, and amazingly rich and articulated bass - outperforming other brands costing two and three times their price.

Dramatic Styling Yields Sonic Benefits

The stunning Ultra Tower Speaker 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 baffle 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.

Each cabinet also employs two separate sealed midrange enclosures to optimize performance and minimize negative interaction between drivers. In addition, the cabinet bracing is FEA-optimized, the cabinet midrange/tweeter baffles are 1" thick, and the woofer baffles are an amazing 1.5" thick. This robust construction eliminates structural resonances and ensures the cabinet remains acoustically inert for uncolored response even at the highest drive levels.

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 Tower Speaker driver array features a 1” aluminum dome tweeter, dual 6.5” midrange drivers, and dual 8" horizontally opposed woofers.

1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter

Light, efficient, and rigid, providing high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) with minimal distortion and the sense of utter transparency, the Ultra Tower Speaker deploys a Finite-Element-Analysis (FEA) optimized diffuser to ensure the tweeter only has the perfect on-axis and off-axis frequency response. That way, everyone in your listening room gets the best performance. Likewise, since SVS shares these design traits with both the Prime and Ultra speakers, both product lines can blend well with one another while offering that SVS hallmark ‘airy’ presentation and incredibly unveiled highs.

Dual 6.5” Midrange Drivers

  • Composite glass-fiber cone with excellent stiffness/mass ratio, which 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

Dual 8” Woofers

  • Long-stroke motor and suspension for low distortion and high output capability
  • Heavy-duty voice coil for enhanced power handling and thermal management
  • 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

Forcefactor Woofer Array

The unique ForceFactor horizontally-opposed dual woofer configuration results in mechanical force cancellation for reduced distortion and cleaner, tighter bass response.

The ForceFactor array also eliminates cabinet vibration, which could otherwise modulate the mid/high frequencies – so the soundstage is always stable and crystal clear.

Also, since the four woofers all fire in different directions, the acoustical loading and modal density in the listening space is greatly enhanced. No matter where you sit, the bass response will be effortless, smooth and accurate, and free of room-based anomalies.

SoundMatch Crossover Intelligently Designed for Your Listening Room

The unique SoundMatch 3.5-way crossover features a tapered array which supplies each midrange driver with an optimized frequency band. Only the top midrange crosses over to the tweeter, while the bottom midrange is tapered to minimize the potential for off-axis lobing at the critical midrange-to-tweeter crossover frequency. The result is a smoother in-room frequency response and enhanced radiation of total sound power, along with a more generous sweet spot in the vertical axis for a convincing and stable soundstage. Naturally the SoundMatch crossover network also features premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors, and heavy-trace printed circuit boards to ensure pure signal transmission.



Ultra Surround Speaker - Pair

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
