Product Description

SVS Ultra Tower flagship floorstanding speaker is built with no compromise to appease the most discerning of audiophiles and features twin opposing 8" woofers to dominate a room with deep, articulate bass while the advanced driver design, high-grade materials and optimum cabinet geometry fuse to bring exceptional resolution, complete transparency, and crisp dynamics.

Driver and Tweeter

Starting ground up, Ultra Tower speakers employ a patented SVS ForceFactor woofer array with dual 8" drivers horizontally opposed at the base of the speaker for room-filling low-frequency output. The unique shape of the cabinet enables each of the woofers to fire in a different direction for deep, effortless and precise bass throughout the listening area. Dual 6.5" midrange drivers constructed from composite glass-fiber cones afford excellent rigidity to mass for boosted sensitivity and ultra-neutral voicing and totally faithful to the source material.

FEA-Optimised

With 80% of the sound coming in mids, the drivers unveils the core of the speaker’s timbre. Augmenting high-frequency performance, the Ultra Tower speaker’s aluminum dome tweeter is incredibly transparent and precise. Light, efficient, robust and resistant to distortion, the tweeter’s airy’ reproduction of vocals and tranparent highs reveal as much as the finest loudspeakers worldwide. The FEA-optimised diffuser grants broad dispersion for an exceptionally wide and convincing soundstage with perfect on/off-axis response.

Design Process

Before construction, drivers and cabinets are designed theoretically by acoustic engineers via complex CAD processes after which prototypes are meticulously measured and optimised in an anechoic environment to obtain pitch- perfect frequency response. Exhaustive listening and measurement is undertaken in rooms calibrated to mirror conventional home environments. The resultant speaker measures well with almost-perfect frequency response but is also optimised to sound incredible on a perceptible level with real music and cinematic content.

Innovative Crossover

The premium drivers need an equally capable crossover so no expense was spared with the smart SVS SoundMatch 3.5-way crossover. Its tapered array is designed so the top mid driver crosses over to the tweeter while the bottom midrange is crossed over to the woofers to prevent beaming. This results in an expansive yet precise soundstage with frequency response and imaging at all listening positions.

Performance Driven

Chamfers on the cabinet’s front reduce edge diffraction for pure and precise soundstaging. The sweeping side panels of the floorstander are not-parallel so each of the 8" woofers fire in different directions to fill a room with deep, flawless and exact bass. Internally, each cabinet holds dual separate sealed midrange structures to optimise performance and minimise driver interaction. Positioning the tweeter between the two mid-range drivers and the distinct 3.5-way crossover design enable high frequency output to be highly resistant to ceiling/floor reflections to project an accurate imitation of the near field response even from afar.

Press Reviews

  • "The SVS system’s midband and effortless, soaring, clean and pure highs were able to entertain as well as unnerve... and the swooping soundtrack leaps around the system with real panache." (Home Cinema Choice Magazine)
