INTRODUCING THE ULTRA CENTER

SVS ULTRA CENTER - THE FOUNDATION FOR HIGH-END HOME THEATERS

The Ultra Center anchors the front stage and immerses the listener in the cinema experience, effortlessly handling the most complex and dialogue-intensive scenes with stunning realism, room-filling presence and outstanding vocal reproduction and dialogue intelligibility. Available in premium-grade piano gloss black and real black oak veneer finishes and handsomely styled with a swept back profile and striking edge treatments, the Ultra Center will complement any high-end home theater.

DRAMATIC STYLING YIELDS SONIC BENEFITS

The Ultra Center 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.

SVS DRIVERS EXTREME PERFORMANCE AND UNCOMPROMISED FIDELITY

The proprietary SVS drivers utilize the finest materials and design features to ensure the highest sound quality and performance. The Ultra Center driver array features a 1" aluminum dome tweeter, a 4" midrange driver, and dual 6.5" woofers. The vertically aligned tweeter and midrange improves horizontal axis polar response, with reduced lobing and comb filtering for a smooth frequency response and excellent dialogue intelligibility at all listening positions.

 

1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter

  • Utilizes an FEA-optimized diffuser which delivers a very open ‘airy’ presentation and extremely unveiled highs
  • Delivers a sound stage so pure and free of artifacts that you'll swear the performers are in the room

4” 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.

6.5” Woofers

Delivers amazing dialogue clarity and detail with powerful and room-filling presence and projection:

  • 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

SOUNDMATCH CROSSOVER
INTELLIGENTLY DESIGNED FOR YOUR LISTENING ROOM

The SoundMatch 3-way crossover features premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors and heavy-trace printed circuit boards to ensure pure signal transmission. Careful selection of the crossover frequency and slopes results in a smooth off-axis polar response, outstanding phase coherency and a 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.

Awesome center

What a speaker. Aamir is such an awesome person who helped me set up and buy most of the components of my new home theater setup. The Ultra center basically topped it off as the cherry on top. It provides perfect dialogue with great clarity and spread across our seating positions. Every step of the way from buying/deciding on where to put my speakers to deciding on seating and how to decorate the room, Aamir helped me out and I really really appreciate it. Summit hifi has gotten a lifelong customer out of me. Thanks!

Fantastic Center Channel - SVS Ultra Center

When building a home theater the center channel is the most important speaker. This does a good job matching the SVS Ultra Towers. Coming from a Klipsch RP-504c I wasn't worried about size. Just make sure the height of the speaker won't be an issue in your setup. Appearance is amazing in gloss black, something truly exceptional to look at. The bind posts at the back are very high quality like all of the SVS Ultra line of speakers. There are 2 small ports (no port plugs like other SVS speakers). I have an 82 inch TV and I don't notice an issue with glare from the high gloss finish. Something to consider if you have a projector though. Tons of detail and richness to the sound. Balanced is the best way to describe it from the highs and mids. Bass is alright but also don't expect a ton of bass from a center channel (PB16 Ultra and Klipsch R-115 subs do that). The price is very reasonable for what you get. Only complaint is I wish the grills were magnetic. It's worth the purchase, you won't be disappointed.

SVS Ultra Centre Channel

Bought the speaker from the website after researching the 'net for reviews.
Painless navigation with purchase in Summit HiFi site.
Speaker arrived quickly and I am very happy with it so far.
Will definitely use Summit HiFi again for future audio "needs".
