Product Information

Creating a Dramatic Visual and Audio Statement

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.

Best Speakers I've Ever Owned
I'm completing my 45 day trial and NO HELL NO you are not getting these back. You think you can trick me with the free return shipping but that will not work. These are MINE and I am KEEPING THEM.

Seriously I have a very large listening room with vaulted ceilings and the towers along with the SVS Ultra center channel speaker can be driven to concert volume (using an actual 200 watts per channel separate amp) and provide just gorgeous clean music. I also have SVS subs and am just thoroughly impressed with your products. I had towers and a center channel from a different brand and even though I paid about the same $$$ for them, the SVS's just blow them away. The Polk's I had could not be driven to the level needed for my large room and did not sound nearly as good. I'm very happy with the SVS Ultra's.

bad quality control
Gary, Please check your quality control, especially when a pair is sent. During calibration, you should have a cal sheet and try to send a matched pair. I am working with your CS dept for return and send out another. I am sad bc these are so big and it is difficult to return on freight. Plus, I was excited to get them and was let down.

I switched from a pair
I switched from a pair of Elac's and wow, what a difference. I hear music I didn't hear before. The kick from the drums is tight, and the high's are so much clearer. And the side firing woofers are smooth as silk. Thanks for such a fine speaker system for a reasonable price. I love the piano finish and they are built to last.

Awesome Performance without a doubt
I purchased the SVS Ultra Tower speakers, Ultra Center Channel, Ultra Surrounds and a pair of SVS PB-12plus subwoofers back in 2012 and I have not been happier. I absolutely love the sound od this system. I added four of the Prime Satelites to provide high pressence field and I am even happier. I drive my 5.2.4 speakers with Emotiva XPA-100 mono amps for my front left and right channels and a XPA-5 and XPA-3 for the rest. When I watch movies the sound is better than a lot of movie theaters. I would recommend SVS Speakers to anyone and everyone. The key to these great sounding speakers is to drive them with plenty of clean power because they can handle it for sure. Keep up the good work guys.

My Ultra Towers were delivered
My Ultra Towers were delivered on an 18 wheeler that could not get anywhere near my home. I transferred them to my F150 a mile or so from home and completed the journey myself. After unloading, unpacking and setting up I began to listen to them. The clarity, openness and spaciousness gave new life to all my CD's and to streaming music. I only wish there was a small dolly available to move them around and find the best location before setting them on the floor permanently. All the expense and effort to install was well worth the listening experience.

The tower speakers arrived on
The tower speakers arrived on time and in good shape.

The Picture on the Internet shows two speakers, I thought I was buying two. When one was delivered I figured out I had to order another one. The ad is misleading.

My First Real Speakers
Let me start by saying that I absolutely love these speakers. Not only that the Ultra Towers sound exceptionally well, but they look very elegant too. I also purchased the Marantz SR5015, which seems to be the right choice for a music enthusiast like me. I am looking forward to my next piece, the SB16 subwoofer, and then the next piece after that.

Lovely sounding black beasts.
My towers started off sounding just ordinary however as I began to break them in and get them into position, the magic started to happen. Midrange and treble are smooth and laid back. Excellent dynamics with a sense of spacial fidelity. These speakers present a great sound stage that plays tricks with ones ears. The build quality is stunning. So beautiful. They are very heavy though. One minor problem; one speaker grill did not fit but I had no problem with customer service sending out another.
