    SVS Ultra Center - The Foundation For High-End Home Theaters
    The Ultra Center anchors the front stage and immerses the listener in the cinema experience, effortlessly handling the most complex and dialogue-intensive scenes with stunning realism, room-filling presence and outstanding vocal reproduction and dialogue intelligibility. Available in premium-grade piano gloss black and real black oak veneer finishes and handsomely styled with a swept back profile and striking edge treatments, the Ultra Center will complement any high-end home theater.


    Dramatic Styling Yields Sonic Benefits
    The Ultra Center cabinet design yields numerous sonic benefits. The non-parallel cabinet panels reduce standing waves within the cabinet, effectively eliminating frequency response coloration. The wedge-shaped front baffle and flush-mounted drivers reduce edge diffraction and improved on-axis high frequency response. Even the grille designn is FEA-optimizedd to maximize acoustic transparency.


    SVS Drivers - Extreme Performance and Uncompromised Fidelity
    The proprietary SVS drivers utilize the finest materials and design features to ensure the highest sound quality and performance. The Ultra Center driver array features a 1" aluminum dome tweeter, a 4" midrange driver, and dual 6.5" woofers. The vertically aligned tweeter and midrange improves horizontal axis polar response, with reduced lobing and comb filtering for a smooth frequency response and excellent dialogue intelligibility at all listening positions.

    The 1" aluminum dome tweeter utilizes an FEA-optimized diffuser which delivers a very open 'airy' presentation and extremely unveiled highs.

    The 4" midrange delivers amazing dialogue clarity and detail with powerful and room-filling presence and projection:

    • A composite glass-fiber cone with excellent stiffness/mass ratio which improves sensitivity and maintains pistonic behavior well beyond the pass-band of the driver.
    • A vented voice coil former to minimize air compression artifacts at high drive levels.
    • An aluminum shorting ring to reduce gap inductance, lower distortion, and improve high frequency response.
    • A cast aluminum basket to ensure precise alignment of critical components and enhance heat-sinking capacity.

    The 6.5" woofer delivers excellent lower midrange clarity, along with remarkably powerful and deep bass response:

    • A composite glass-fiber cone with excellent stiffness/mass ratio which improves sensitivity and maintains pistonic behavior well beyond the pass-band of the driver.
    • A vented voice coil former to minimize air compression artifacts at high drive levels.
    • An aluminum shorting ring to reduce gap inductance, lower distortion, and improve high frequency response.
    • A cast aluminum basket to ensure precise alignment of critical components and enhance heat-sinking capacity.


    SoundMatch Crossover Network - Intelligently Designed for Your Listening Room
    The SoundMatch 3-way crossover features premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors and heavy-trace printed circuit boards to ensure pure signal transmission. Careful selection of the crossover frequency and slopes results in a smooth off-axis polar response, outstanding phase coherency and a stable sound stage.
