The SVS Ultra Surrounds
Innovative engineering and intelligent design come together in the SVS Ultra Surround home theater speakers. Acoustically voiced to blend seamlessly with all models in the SVS Ultra and Prime series speaker lines, the Ultra Surround speaker deeply immerses you in the onscreen action by conveying a massive soundstage and rendering the smallest details with pinpoint clarity and spatial imaging.
Designed with dual isolated SoundMatch two-way crossovers for each tweeter and woofer, the SVS Ultra Surround can operate in either bipole, dipole, or in the unique SVS Duet Mode, which creates two separate speakers in a single cabinet. In Duet mode, each set of drivers in the Ultra Surround speaker receives a discrete signal, so your system can deliver true 7 channel surround sound using only 5 full-range speakers.
Whether playing the aggressive, multi-layered soundtrack of an action movie or the understated effect of rain falling all around the listener, the Ultra Surround speaker delivers a powerful and convincing audio experience. From the drivers to the crossover and cabinet, each component is painstakingly engineered and tested to achieve breathtaking realism.
Ultra Driver & Tweeter Design
Room-filling low frequency and midrange playback is handled by dual 5.5-inch mid-bass drivers that feature glass-fiber cones with excellent stiffness to mass ratio for enhanced sensitivity and voicing that’s transparent and completely faithful to the source material. Whether conveying the nuance of subtle surround effects like a car driving by or a door closing, or the head-spinning sonic impact of an explosion happening behind you, the Ultra Surround drivers deliver pinpoint accuracy with precise imaging and a massive soundstage.
Elevating high frequency performance, the Ultra Surround speaker’s aluminum dome tweeter is pristinely neutral and revealing. Light, efficient, rigid and impervious to distortion even at high sound pressure levels, the tweeter’s airy, unveiled highs compare with the best home theater surround sound speakers in the world. The FEA-optimized tweeter diffuser ensures broad dispersion for a wide and convincing soundstage and perfect on- and off-axis frequency response. This means the largest possible “Sweet Spot” for surround effects so everyone can be equally immersed with what’s happening onscreen.
nnovative Two-Way SoundMatch Crossover
No expense was spared with the innovative SVS SoundMatch two-way crossover. The unique topology reveals a broad, yet focused soundstage, with accurate frequency response and imaging at all listening positions. You clearly sense the directionality of sound coming from different places all around you. The crossover also enables SVS’s innovative Duet Mode, so you can go from 5.1 to 7.1 or 7.1 to 9.1 without adding additional surround sound speakers. The precise tuning of the SoundMatch Crossover also ensures balanced output throughout the frequency spectrum.
The Ultra Surround speaker also comes standard with a wall-mounting bracket or it can easily be placed on a speaker stand for maximum placement flexibility.
Performance Driven Cabinet Design and Geometry
Every feature on the Ultra Surround speaker’s cabinet was designed with a sonic purpose in mind. Tapered edges on the cabinet’s front baffle, known as chamfers, minimize edge diffraction for clear and precise soundstaging. Internally, each cabinet employs separate sealed enclosures for both mid-bass drivers and tweeters to optimize performance and minimize interaction. Even the grille design is FEA-optimized to maximize acoustic transparency.
