SVS Ultra Center Channel Speaker – Piano Gloss Black

The SVS Ultra Center channel speaker is a reference-quality 3-way design that provides an expansive soundstage, powerful dynamics, and pristine clarity, making it the perfect addition to any home theater. With a focus on achieving the widest sweet spot possible and delivering crisp, clear vocals, this center channel speaker serves as a critical sonic bridge between the front left and right speakers in a surround sound setup. Despite its compact size, the Ultra Center delivers exceptional low frequency extension and reveals incredible detail and nuance in music and movie content, outperforming larger and more expensive center channel speakers.

SVS Ultra Center Channel

The SVS Ultra Center speaker is an uncompromising addition to any home theater system. With a meticulously tuned SoundMatch three-way crossover, dual 6.5-inch glass fiber composite woofers, and a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter and 4-inch midrange driver aligned vertically, every element has been crafted with care. From the acoustically enhanced cabinet geometry to the high-end components and build quality, the Ultra Center is a standout among center channel speakers.

Despite the fact that the center channel speaker is responsible for delivering the majority of dialogue, vocals, and music in a movie, it is often overlooked in a surround sound system. Many manufacturers compromise with a two-way design or a flimsy, thin center channel speaker, but not SVS. The SVS Ultra Center is optimized for horizontal placement and delivers a reference-quality sound, elevating even the most demanding movie and music content.

Ultra Driver & Tweeter Design

The SVS Ultra Center speaker boasts a 4-inch composite glass-fiber cone midrange driver that provides high sensitivity and maintains pistonic behavior even beyond its pass-band. Housed in a sub-enclosure, the midrange driver is vertically aligned with a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter that has an FEA-optimized diffuser for broad dispersion and perfect frequency response on- and off-axis, resulting in a large “Sweet Spot” for a wide and convincing soundstage. The dual 6.5-inch woofers deliver exceptional bass output and power handling capabilities that are rarely found in a center channel speaker.

During playback of movies, TV shows, or music, all components of the Ultra Center speaker work together seamlessly to provide clear vocal clarity, dialogue intelligibility, and powerful dynamics while anchoring the front stage with a massive soundstage and seamless transitional effects. The Ultra Center speaker delivers an impressive audio experience whether conveying the nuanced dialogue of a conversation or the high-impact soundtrack of an action movie.

Innovative SoundMatch Crossover Design

A center channel speaker that truly stands out requires a three-way crossover design. The SVS Ultra Center speaker, in particular, boasts a unique SVS SoundMatch three-way crossover with precisely tuned crossover frequencies and slopes. This design results in a smooth off-axis response, excellent phase coherency, and a stable, robust soundstage. The speaker also features premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors, and other high-end components to ensure pristine signal transmission and complete neutrality.

Performance Driven Cabinet Design and Geometry

Every feature on the Ultra Center channel speaker’s cabinet was designed with a sonic purpose in mind. The chamfered edges on the front baffle minimize edge diffraction, resulting in clear and precise soundstaging. The cabinet also features separate sealed enclosures for the mid-bass drivers and tweeters to optimize performance and minimize interaction between them. Even the grille design has been optimized using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to ensure maximum acoustic transparency.
