Driver

1″ Aluminum Dome Tweeter:

  • FEA-optimized diffuser for airy and unveiled presentation
  • Aluminum dome delivers exceptional transient response and exceptional stiffness/mass ratio

6.5″ Midrange Drivers:

  • Composite glass-fiber cone with excellent stiffness/mass ratio for high sensitivity and pistonic behavior beyond pass band
  • Aluminum shorting ring to reduce gap inductance, lower distortion, and enhance high frequency response
  • Cast aluminum basket to ensure precise alignment of critical components and additional heat-sinking capacity
  • Vented voice coil former to minimize air compression artifacts at high drive levels

8″ Woofers:

  • Aluminum shorting rings to reduce gap inductance and lower distortion
  • Long stroke motor and suspension for high output
  • Vented voice coil formers to minimize air compression artifacts at high drive levels

Crossover

  • 3.5-way crossover with premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors and heavy-trace printed circuit boards
  • Unique tapered midrange array miniimizes off-axis lobing and enhances radiated sound power into listening space
  • Top midrange-to-tweeter crossover:  2 kHz
  • Bottom midrange taper frequency:  700 Hz
  • Dual midrange-to-woofer crossover:  160 Hz

Cabinet

  • Separate sealed midrange enclosures minimize top-to-bottom wall dimensions and shift standing waves beyond the driver pass band, minimizing negative driver interaction and associated frequency response degradation
  • Non-parallel cabinet panels reduces axial standing waves within the cabinet, reducing frequency response coloration
  • Acoustically transparent and FEA optimized grilles, wedge-shaped front baffle and flush-mounted drivers all contribute to reduced edge diffraction and improved on-axis high frequency response
  • FEA-optimized bracing, 1″ thick midrange/tweeter baffles and 1.5″ thick woofer baffles eliminates structural resonances and ensures the cabinet remains acoustically inert for uncolored response even at the highest drive levels

TheMasterSwitch Review: “Utterly magnificent bass. Fluid and captivating articulation in the mids, with warmth and clarity to voices. Intriguing and captivating design with great stereo imaging. The Ultra Towers are easily among the best floorstanding speakers available.”

AVNirvana Review: “The Ultra Tower offers a listener serious power – thickly textured and finely tuned power – loaded with an amazing depth of sound. Soundstage and imaging were excellent, with pinpoint precision of voices and samples. SVS Ultra Towers can make audiophile dreams come true possessing the ability to tackle discerning two-channel listening and the dynamic demands of full-on home theater presentations.”
