SVS Ultra Center Speaker

A center channel speaker is often considered the most underrated speaker in a home theater surround sound system because it handles the majority of dialogue, vocals, music and sound that’s coming from right in front of you ina movie, but rarely does a home theater center speaker get the same love as tower or bookshelf speakers. Many speaker manufacturers compromise with a two-way design or thin center channel speaker with flimsy drivers as an afterthought, not SVS. The SVS Ultra Center channel speaker flexes serious sonic muscle and is optimized for horizontal placement and elevating the most challenging movie and music content to reference quality.

Ultra Driver & Tweeter Design

For the all-important midrange where the majority of audio content lives, the SVS Ultra Center speaker features a robust 4-inch composite glass-fiber cone midrange driver with an excellent stiffness to mass ratio for high sensitivity and maintaining pistonic behavior well beyond the pass-band of the driver. The midrange is housed in its own sub-enclosure and vertically aligned with the 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter, which features an FEA-optimized diffuser to ensure broad dispersion for an incredibly wide and convincing soundstage and perfect on- and off-axis frequency response. This means the largest possible “Sweet Spot” so everyone can experience the same stunning clarity. Dual 6.5-inch woofers deliver effortless bass output and power handling capabilities rarely found in a center channel home theater speaker.

During movie, TV or music playback, all components within the Ultra Center channel speaker act in perfect unison to provide crisp vocal clarity, unerring dialogue intelligibility and powerful dynamics, while anchoring the front stage with seamless transitional effects and a massive soundstage. Whether conveying the breathy dialogue of an intense conversation or the multi-layered, high-impact soundtrack of an action movie, the Ultra Surround speaker delivers a powerful and convincing audio experience.

Innovative SoundMatch Crossover Design

A three-way crossover design is imperative for a truly stand-out center channel. The Ultra Center speaker features a unique SVS SoundMatch three-way crossover with precisely tuned crossover frequencies and slopes that result in a smooth off-axis response, outstanding phase coherency and a stable, robust soundstage. Premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors and other high end components ensure pristine signal transmission and utter neutrality.

Performance Driven Cabinet Design and Geometry

Every feature on the Ultra Center channel speaker’s cabinet was designed with a sonic purpose in mind. Tapered edges on the cabinet’s front baffle, known as chamfers, minimize edge diffraction for clear and precise soundstaging. Internally, each cabinet employs separate sealed enclosures for both mid-bass drivers and tweeters to optimize performance and minimize interaction. Even the grille design is FEA-optimized to maximize acoustic transparency.
