SVS Ultra Tower Floor Standing Speaker

At SVS, beauty is never just skin-deep. The Ultra Tower Speaker 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. The Ultra Tower is SVS's flagship speaker. When it was being designed, the goal was simple: create the best $2000/pair speakers available. The Ultra Tower is a true full-range speaker, packed with innovation inside and out. At the same time, it uses tried-and-true materials and construction techniques, instead of costly exotic materials. Its sound is detailed, dynamic, and beautifully balanced from top to bottom.

Dramatic Styling Yields Sonic Benefits
The stunning Ultra Tower Speaker 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. In addition, the cabinet bracing is FEA-optimized, the cabinet midrange/tweeter baffles are 1" thick, and the woofer baffles are an amazing 1.5" thick. This robust construction eliminates structural resonances and ensures the cabinet remains acoustically inert for uncolored response even at the highest drive levels.

3.5-Way Driver Design
The SVS Ultra Tower speaker utilizes a 3.5-way driver design with a 1" aluminum dome tweeter, two 6.5" composite glass-fiber midrange drivers, and dual 8" cone woofers for a powerful and convincing audio experience from the highest frequencies to the lowest bass notes.

  • Dual 6.5” Midrange Drivers:
      • Composite glass-fiber cone with excellent stiffness/mass ratio, which improves sensitivity and maintains pistonic behavior well beyond the pass-band of the driver
      • Vented voice coil former to minimize air compression artifacts at high drive levels
      • Aluminum shorting ring to reduce gap inductance, lower distortion, and improve high frequency response
      • Cast aluminum basket to ensure precise alignment of critical components and enhance heat-sinking capacity
  • Dual 8” Woofers:
      • Long-stroke motor and suspension for low distortion and high output capability
      • Heavy-duty voice coil for enhanced power handling and thermal management
      • Vented voice coil former to minimize air compression artifacts at high drive levels
      • Aluminum shorting ring to reduce gap inductance, lower distortion, and improve high frequency response

Dual Gold-Plated Binding Posts
The SVS Ultra Tower speaker has two sets of gold-plated binding posts connected by jumper-straps. The gold-plated binding posts will accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), pin connectors, spade connectors, & banana plugs (single only). Using the dual posts, you can bi-wire or bi-amp the speaker. Bi-wiring or bi-amping the speaker provides improved bass & treble performance.

  • Bi-Wiring: Bi-wiring can provide noticeable improvements in the overall transparency of your loudspeakers. Run separate speaker wires to the low & high frequency drivers from a single amplifier (the upper set of binding posts are for the high frequency drivers; the lower set of binding posts are for the low frequency drivers).
  • Bi-Amping: Bi-amping allows you to use separate amplifiers for the high & low frequency sections of your loudspeaker for greater dynamic range & lower distortion. We recommend that your separate amplifiers have identical gain to preserve the speaker's voicing balance.

SoundMatch Crossover Design
The SVS Ultra Tower speaker features a 3.5-way SoundMatch crossover with premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors, and heavy-trace printed circuit boards. The top-midrange-to-tweeter crossover is set at 2kHz, the bottom midrange taper frequency is set a 950Hz, while the dual midrange-to-woofer crossover is set at 160Hz. The precise tuning of the SoundMatch Crossover also ensures balanced output throughout the frequency spectrum.
