Adaptable is the term best used to describe SVS’s new Prime Elevation speakers. The trapezoidal speakers are being billed by SVS as being flexible enough to be used for a multitude of home theater configurations. The Prime Elevation Speakers come in three flavors, gloss white, gloss black and black ash. The Elevation modules are designed to mimic the appearance of SVS’s Prime series, but because of their multiple finish options they should blend well with speakers from other manufacturers.  SVS also includes hanging brackets so wall installation should be easy once you decide on speaker placement.
 
Possible Configurations Include:

• As a down-firing height channel speaker, easily mounted high on a side wall
 
• As an up-firing height channel speaker for the same formats, placed on stands or atop tower speakers
 
• As an up-firing or down-firing front or center channel speaker with projector screens or where level placement at ear height is not possible
 
• As a side or rear-firing surround speaker, when placement on a side or rear wall is not optimal for the most convincing side or back surround effects
 
• A pair of Elevation speakers can be wall-mounted and wired to become a bipole or dipole surround speaker.

 

SVS Prime Elevation Speaker

At the heart of the Elevations lie a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter and 4.5-inch polypropylene cone woofer. They’re rated with a frequency response of 69 Hz – 25 kHz which is comparable to a good bookshelf speaker.

 

The Prime Elevations should start shipping April 2016 at a price of $349/pair. More information is expected to be revealed at this year’s CES show in January.
