- The 1” Aluminum dome tweeter, which is light, efficient, and rigid, provides high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) with minimal distortion and the sense of utter transparency. It deploys a Finite-Element-Analysis (FEA) optimized diffuser to ensure the tweeter only has the perfect on-axis and off-axis frequency response.

Prime Towers: Pillars of Performance - Stereo to Cinema
Delivering immersive, full-spectrum sound, the Prime Towers anchor an amazing listening experience. Their combination of both sonic accuracy and lively dynamics elevate movies to an immersive experience and the highlight the subtle nuances of your music. They are remarkable on their own in a two channel system, and in a home theater, the Towers’ voicing match and seamlessly meld with the other Prime or Ultra speakers in your system. The result: a suspension of reality that takes you to the center of the action be it a mosh pit or jet fighter cockpit. Dialogue and vocals are clear and true. Bass grooves and explosions will rock the room. With Prime towers’ twin 6.5 inch woofers in each tower, you don’t need a stand-alone subwoofer if space won’t allow (should you have the room and want the additional depth and dimension a dedicated subwoofer provides—Prime towers pair well with several SVS subwoofers, like the award-winning SB-2000).
FEA and CAD Optimized Cabinet
The precision machined front-baffle chamfers were carefully engineered to reduce tweeter diffraction artifacts, while the rest of the cabinet was designed to eliminate resonances for an honest, neutral and uncolored sound. Likewise, even the grill has been FEA optimized for maximum transparency.
1 inch Aluminum Dome & FEA-Optimized Diffuser
The light, efficient, and rigid 1 inch Aluminum dome tweeter provides high SPL, minimal distortion, and a sense of utter transparency. It deploys a FEA optimized diffuser to ensure only the perfect on-axis and off-axis frequency response. That way everyone in your listening room gets the best performance. Since we share these design traits with both the Prime and Ultra speakers, both product lines can blend perfectly while offering that SVS hallmark ‘airy’ presentation and incredibly unveiled highs.
Sophisticated Crossover Design
Our exclusive SoundMatch crossover sports premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors, and heavy-trace printed circuit boards. All of these high-quality components yield lower distortion, tighter tolerances, better heat dissipation, and all around better sound. The innovative and sophisticated 3.5-way crossover is unique in that each woofer has its own discrete crossover, doubling the number of components used for the bass section, and allowing the woofers to work together without lobing in the vertical axis, which can cause cancellations at the listening area, and instead improves radiated sound power.
Trickle Down Theory In Action – SVS Ultra Sound At A Prime Price
Borrowing heavily from the Ultra line, the Prime Bookshelf is packed with high-end technology and premium quality drivers, setting a new high-water mark for sound quality and performance value at this price point.
The crossover is the key to any great bookshelf, and our exclusive SoundMatch network is packed with quality components and exhaustive refinement for outstanding phase coherency and time domain behavior. The transition between tweeter and woofer is so smooth and seamless you’ll swear it sounds like a single full-range drive.
The front baffle of the cabinet is chamfered and the drivers are flush-mounted to reduce edge diffraction for a smooth high-end and outstanding imaging. Inside the FEA and CAD optimized cabinet is braced to eliminate resonances for an honest, neutral and uncolored midrange.

PRIME TOWERS – PILLARS OF PERFORMANCE – STEREO TO CINEMA As the primary source of full spectrum sound, the Prime Towers anchor the listening experience. Their combination of both accuracy and dynamics elevate the experience of your movies and the nuances of your music. The voicing of the towers' multiple drivers match and seamlessly meld with the other Prime or Ultra speakers in your system. SVS Sweats The Details – You Hear Perfect Sound With a smooth aluminum dome tweeter, dedicated midrange driver and dual long–throw woofers, the Prime Tower effortlessly cranks out clean, dynamic and powerful sound. The innovative and sophisticated 3.5–way crossover has different crossover points for each woofer to eliminate lobing in the vertical axis and improve total radiated sound power. Translation – awesome bass response and a smooth, seamless transition to the midrange. SVS took the 3.5–way crossover concept a step further – each woofer has a dedicated and completely separate internal compartment with its own custom port tuning frequency. The result is bass you need to hear in person to fully appreciate. Similarly, the 4.5" midrange driver is mounted in its own dedicated and completely sealed compartment to ensure a smooth, precise and clear midrange free from standing wave coloration. All this tech is packed into a handsome and sleek cabinet available in premium–grade piano gloss black or handsome black ash finish. And for that touch of class – the Prime Tower has the same upscale metal spiked screw–in feet as our flagship Ultra Tower.
Top customer reviews
One of the problems we run into in the current state of retail stores is that the listening room for equipment either no longer exists, or the options are limited to big box brands only like Polk, Klipsch, Bose, Pioneer, Sony, etc. At least this is the way it was for me. I would have had to spend a month waiting on local music stores to find demo pairs of what I wanted to hear.
It seems like the barrier for entry with speakers now is more based in research and not money that can be spent, as I couldn't have even discovered brands like HSU, SVS, and Bic without spending a week or two poking around audiophile circles on the internet.
When it came down to it, I was torn between Bic, HSU, Chane, and SVS. When I started googling around for people complaining about SVS speakers, I just couldn't find any rage from the internet. People speak highly of the quality for the cost, and very highly of the customer support staff.
I don't exactly have the best trained ear for an audiophile review, so take this with a grain of salt, but I can't find any problems with these speakers. I currently have the SB-2000 sub on order, which should arrive today, but the rest of the setup is a Modi-2 DAC to a Behringer A500 amp feeding two of these Prime towers; I'll probably pick up a preamp soon for the single volume switch. The bass produced by the towers themselves is formidable, however not enough to forgo a dedicated sub in a larger room. The highs are nice and mellow, as even the music I was scared to listen to (for the life of my ears) came through high and clear.
Right now these are packed into my tiny apartment as we wait out the two months until we can move into our house; This speaker and amp combination would easily get the police called if I put the amp anywhere past 50% volume.
If you have $1,000 to spend on a pair of speakers, this should be in your top 3 choices, if not just outright what you should buy.
The highs are bright and crisp without much coloration and no harshness. They play incredibly deep, and hit harder than you can imagine. The bass is controlled, punchy, and full but never gets boomy. They reproduce sound faithfully and are fairly efficient. That last bit are their biggest downfall. They are so faithful that they make poor sources sound poor. It truly is garbage in garbage out. A lot of speakers color the sound with resonances. These do not (which is good). If you bring someone over to show off, make sure you use a high quality source (Blu-ray, CD, high bitrate audio).
You will not be disappointed!
The speakers I was looking at besides these were the GoldenEar Triton 5's which were the same price as the SVS Ultra's. I was actually going to order the SVS Ultra's but bought these first under their trial to see if I liked these first. There are a lot of good speakers out there. You need to really try them in your room with your amp to know for sure how they will sound in your room.
These speakers are not huge so they do not become the focal point of the room but can still fill your room with full balanced sound.
Although I don't always run it you may want a sub with them.
My system is 90 watts per channel but I have never had it up all the way.
