Read Our Full Review of The SVS Prime Series

 

SVS’s Ultra series of home theater speakers has garnered high praise from many home theater enthusiast the past few years. However, because of their high price tag, the Ultra series hasn’t been easily accessible for the average Joe. SVS’s new Prime series aims to change that.

 

Some of the technology from SVS’s Ultra series has trickled down to the new Prime series. From the newly designed crossover to the machined front baffle, the new Prime speakers benefit from SVS’s experience gained from developing the Ultra Series. In an effort to make the Prime series more affordable to the masses the Prime’s are available in two finishes. Like the Ultra series, the Prime’s come in a high gloss piano black finish, however if you want to save a few bucks you can also get them in a black ash finish.

The woofers hit the low notes while the mid-range driver, which is set inside it’s own isolated enclosure, takes care of the mid-range frequencies. The center makes use of SVS’s SoundMatch 3-way crossover which ensures a seamless transition between all of the drivers.
