SVS Ultra Tower Speaker (ea.) Black Oak

SVS Ultra Tower – The FlagshipStanding 45" tall with a unique upswept trapezoidal shape and striking edge treatments, the Ultra Tower creates a dramatic visual statement. Premium–grade finishes in piano gloss black and real black oak veneer complement this contemporary design. But at SVS beauty is never just skin–deep. The Ultra Tower delivers a deep and detailed soundstage with incredible resolution, absolute transparency, and amazingly rich and articulated bass — outperforming other brands costing two and three times their price. "SVS may be best known for its outrageously fine subwoofers, but the Audiophiliac thinks its Ultra Tower is the gem in the line." – Steve Guttenberg, CNet
  • UltraSonic drivers utilize the finest materials and design.
  • Unique upswept trapezoidal shape and striking edge treatments.
  • The 8" woofers deliver that famous SVS bass.
  • Premium–grade finishes in piano gloss black.

Dramatic Styling Yields Sonic Benefits
The stunning Ultra Tower 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 design is FEA–optimized to maximize acoustic transparency.

Each cabinet also employs two separate sealed midrange enclosures to optimize performance and minimize negative interaction between drivers.

UltraSonic Drivers
Extreme Performance and Uncompromised Fidelity. The SVS UltraSonic drivers utilize the finest materials and design features to ensure the highest sound quality and performance. The Ultra Tower driver array features a 1" aluminum dome tweeter, dual 6.5" midrange drivers, and dual 8" horizontally opposed woofers.

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

The 6.5" midrange driver delivers a sound stage so pure and free of artifacts that you'll swear the performers are in the room:

  • 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 8" woofers deliver that famous SVS bass – deep, tight, clean, linear and powerful:
  • A long–stroke motor and suspension for low distortion and high output capability.
  • A heavy duty voice for enhanced power handling and thermal management.
  • 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.
“These speakers do everything well, and the more time I spent with them, the more I appreciated the way they could get the best out of any content in my library…”
– Mark Fleischmann / Sound & Vision

ForceFactor Woofer Array
The unique ForceFactor horizontally–opposed dual woofer configuration results in mechanical force cancellation for reduced distortion and cleaner, tighter bass response. The ForceFactor array also eliminates cabinet vibration, which could otherwise modulate the mid/high frequencies — so the soundstage is always stable and crystal clear.

Also, since the four woofers all fire in different directions, the acoustical loading and modal density in the listening space is greatly enhanced. No matter where you sit, the bass response will be effortless, smooth and accurate, and free of room–based anomalies.

SoundMatch Crossover Network
Intelligently Designed for Your Listening Room. The unique SoundMatch 3.5–way crossover features a tapered array which supplies each midrange driver with an optimized frequency band. Only the top midrange crosses over to the tweeter, while the bottom midrange is tapered to minimize the potential for off–axis lobing at the critical midrange–to–tweeter crossover frequency. The result is a smoother in–room frequency response and enhanced radiation of total sound power, along with a more generous sweet spot in the vertical axis for a convincing and stable sound stage.

Naturally the SoundMatch crossover network also features premium–grade capacitors, air–core inductors and heavy–trace printed circuit boards to ensure pure signal transmission.
