The reference 3-way SVS Ultra Center channel speaker reproduces the most demanding movie and music content with depth, clarity and vigor, while serving as the main soundstage anchor and critical sonic bridge between the front left and right speakers in a surround sound home theater. Amazingly detailed and revealing of the finest nuance and textures with excellent low frequency extension, the SVS Ultra Center combines power and precision to outperform much larger and more expensive center channel speakers.
Reference 3-way Ultra Center speaker anchors the front stage of a home theater with stunning dynamics, massive soundstage and pristine clarity for unerring realism and dialogue intelligibility. The 3-way design with 1-inch dome tweeter, 4-inch vertically-aligned midrange driver and dual 6.5-inch woofers produces outstanding dispersion characteristics for accurate frequency response at all listening positions.
For the all-important midrange where the majority of audio content lives, the SVS Ultra Center speaker features a stiff and lightweight 4-inch composite glass-fiber cone midrange driver 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 so
Unique SVS SoundMatch 3-way crossover with precisely tuned crossover frequencies and slopes 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.
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.
