The SVS Prime Series is a versatile line of speakers designed to offer excellent sound, build quality and value. It comprises Tower, Bookshelf, Centre and Satellite models, equipped with AV_prime_loudspeakerspremium finish and features, together with technology from the SVS Ultra designs.

As the second full-range speaker family from the US brand, SVS Prime applies new engineering and form factor changes to achieve “flagship performance” at mainstream prices – the objective being to deliver a higher-end audio experience to a broader audience. The Prime Series features lifestyle-friendly cabinet design available in black ash or piano gloss.

Prime Tower
The Prime Tower speaker adds its own distinctive touches to the Ultra Tower blueprint. It has a completely new 3.5-way crossover for the tweeter to the midrange driver, and through the two individually tuned and isolated 6.5-inch woofers.

Prime Bookshelf
Created for two-channel purists and home theatre fans alike, the Prime Bookshelf speaker performs as a standalone reference monitor, surround or front channel speaker. Specified with a stiffened polypropylene cone, a refined motor with aluminium shorting ring for reduced distortion and a vented voice coil former, the 6.25” woofer delivers “articulate bass and outstanding extension”. The 1” aluminium dome tweeter utilises an FEA-optimised diffuser.

Prime Centre
The Prime Centre is a true three-way, four-driver design featuring a 1” aluminium dome tweeter, dedicated 3.5” midrange driver and dual 5.25” woofers. SVS’s exclusive SoundMatch three-way crossover “ensures a smooth transition between drivers for articulate expression and on/off-axis accuracy”. To avoid midrange modulation from the woofer, SVS has mounted the midrange driver in its own dedicated and sealed chamber.

Prime Satellite
SVS’s first satellite speaker, the Prime Satellite is equipped with a 1″ aluminium dome tweeter and 4.5″ polypropylene cone woofer the Satellite is perfect as a compact standalone speaker or matched with SVS subwoofers in multichannel systems where space is limited. It’s supplied with a wall-bracket for discreet installation and joins the SVS SB-1000 sub to complete the affordable Prime 2.1 and 5.1 systems offered by Karma-AV.
