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.

Ultra Towers and Ultra Center
I use these speakers at least 4 to 6 hours everyday. They have rekindled my love for music and I truly think they are worth every penny. I have these playing uncompressed audio through an Oppo 103 and I fall in love with the sound every single day. I also have two PC12-NSD's and I have a PB-13 Ultra on the way. Love this company, love the customer service, love the prices. A+ stuff.

Movies are clear as crystal and dialogue comes through loud and clear. I will get the surrounds some time in the future and then I will have a complete set.

Replaced my high-end two channel
Very pleased with these speakers and often surprised how good they sound even after a year. I have had several high-end speakers come through my listening room - Wilson, Vandersteen, Von Schweikert, Roger Sanders, Revel, Silverline, and a few others and the SVS Ultras are not embarrassed. They look great, have a true full range capability, very dynamic and big sounding. No, the sound quality is not quite the same as these other $5,000 to $15,000 speakers but for $2,000 the SVS Ultra Towers are not left too far behind and keep up in some aspects. They are the best value in floor standing speakers and I highly recommend them to anyone looking for serious sound without having to spend ten figures.

As with all speakers pay attention to positioning of the towers and the listening position also. Use quality components and cables in your system. Use the included floor spikes to make the speakers solid. My soundstage is way past the speakers in all three dimensions. Any tweaks in our system will be revealed by these speakers. I am very pleased with this purchase.

I have been without quality home stereo for a long time_ I decided it was time to do something for me, and decided to get back to listening to music_. I shopped around and demod some speakers and decided the Ultra towers were for me_ I compared them to B&W cm10 at 4000.00 a pair and was amazed how the SVS spearkers performed!! I saved some cash and in my opinion, got excellent sound!!

SVS Ultra - great upgrade from Infinity
After purchasing an SB-1000 I was very impressed with the quality of your products. When it was time this holiday season, I did a pretty large upgrade replacing an Infinity Primus Tower package that was paired with an Onkyo TX-SR605 and replaced that with a Denon AVR-X5200W and your SVS Ultra Tower Surround package. It is a truly impressive system and I'm very happy with it. The SVS Ultra speakers sound fantastic listening to a wide range of music from classical to rock to EDM. Movies sound amazing and having that gorgeous SVS Ultra Center really makes the dialogue pop.

Cannot believe it until you hear it
After much debate and consideration of many different brands, I decided to go with the highly rated SBS Ultra set. Can't be more pleased with any aspect -- product quality, sound, design/looks, and customer service. SVS is great to do business with and that make great products. This set of speakers pairs especially well with two SB16-Ultra subwoofers. I owned and heard a lot of sound systems, and it just doesn't get any better than this.

Great speaker but not for me
Fantastic speaker that has rich bass and neutral sound. Unfortunately it wasn't for me. I am very very picky. For some reason I did not like how male vice sounded and I could not find a good balance with bass. Open/closed rear port. I really appreciate getting a chance to try out some Ultra Towers! Thank you very much! :)
