SVS, who manufacture speakers, subwoofers and audio accessories, have announced the SVS Prime Pinnacle speaker. Prime Pinnacle features an all-new driver array with 5.25-inch midrange, three 6.5-inch woofers housed in separate ported sub-enclosures and a high-performance 1-inch aluminium dome tweeter.

Prime Pinnacle’s midrange includes a glass-fibre composite cone and other design elements from the reference SVS Ultra Series speakers. Unique to SVS, the SoundMatch 3-Way crossover is tuned so each driver; from tweeter to midrange and midrange to woofers, blends seamlessly. The crossover’s topology is consistent with all SVS speakers so Prime Pinnacle is timbre-matched to integrate with any speaker from the Prime or Ultra Series.  Prime Pinnacle’s cabinet has four self-contained, acoustically tuned internal chambers to eliminate any potential for resonances or sonic artifacts. Tapered edges on the Prime Tower speaker’s front baffle, known as chamfers, and flush-mounted drivers minimise edge diffraction.

Reference SVS Ultra Series

“When we set out to design the Prime Pinnacle speaker, it was supposed to be a straightforward execution that came as close to the performance of our reference Ultra Tower as possible, but in a more room-friendly cabinet design at a lower price,” said Gary Yacoubian, President, SVS. “The reality is, we spent more time voicing Prime Pinnacle than any speaker in SVS history so it would be equally suited for the demands of discerning audiophiles and hardcore home theatre fans. To go even further, Prime Pinnacle’s profile had to blend seamlessly and sound amazing in any listening environment. The dedication paid off because it truly stands alone at its price and well beyond.”

Prime Pinnacle has a rated bandwidth of 29Hz-25kHz (+/-3dB) and features 5-way binding posts and a cloth grille with pin/cup retention system. The floorstanding speaker comes in a Piano Gloss Black finish or premium Black Ash wood grain finish. Pricing for the Prime Pinnacle speakers is $799.99 each for the premium Black Ash and $899.99 each for the Piano Gloss Black finish.
