INTRODUCING THE ULTRA BOOKSHELF
SVS UTRA BOOKSHELF - DESIGNED FOR THE DISCRIMINATING AUDIOPHILE
Handsomely styled with a swept back profile and striking edge treatments, the Ultra Bookshelf draws design cues from the magnificent flagship Ultra Tower. Available in premium-grade piano gloss black and real black oak veneer finishes, the Ultra bookshelf looks stunning and will complement any upscale décor. Reference-grade bookshelf monitors have always held a warm spot in the heart of any serious audiophile, and the Ultra Bookshelf lives up to that esteemed legacy. This emotionally involving monitor delivers precise imaging, an amazingly coherent and deep soundstage, a wonderfully rich and compelling tonal balance and surprisingly deep and dynamic bass. Sure to thrill serious music aficionados everywhere, the Ultra Bookshelf immediately takes a place amongst the most highly-regarded 2-way monitors on the market.
Dramatic Styling Yields Sonic Benefits
The Ultra Bookshelf 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 Bookshelf driver array features a 1” aluminum dome tweeter and a 6.5” woofer.
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.
Delivers scintillating midrange detail combined with remarkable bass response:
- 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.
SOUNDMATCH CROSSOVER INTELLIGENTLY DESIGNED FOR YOUR LIVING ROOM
The SoundMatch 2-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 enhanced radiation of total sound power with a generous sweet spot and stable sound stage.

Well I'm in love with these things! I can't believe my ears and the sound that's coming out if these bookshelves. Clear imagining and separation! I have a SB 3000 on the way to go with these bad boys and can't wait to see how they work paired up with that. Love the gloss white finish I got also. So beautiful.
SVS Ultra Bookshelf Speakers (Pair)
In short, they look as good as they sound. Very detailed but could use a little help on the low end. I also have an SB-2000 and they match perfectly.
A sublime set of speakers that pack a huge punch. These babies rock! The clarity is outstanding and the bass is ever present but not overpowering. I'd definitely recommend these to anybody looking for a solid pair of bookshelf speakers.
Also Summit Hi-Fi is focused on customer satisfaction. Very happy to support these guys.
My SVS Ultra Bookshelf Speakers have about 150 hours on them and they keep sounding better and better. I can’t believe how good these little guys sound. I power them with a Nuprime IDA 16 and the sound is crystal clear throughout the volume range. When I first hooked these guys up and cranked the volume, the system sounded great, and then thinking I should turn my SVS 3000 Subwoofer off and see what just the Ultras sound like, I discovered the Sub was already off. The bass is incredible from such a small speaker. I purchased the IDA 16 AMP, SVS 3000 SUB and the Bookshelf Speakers all from Aamir I couldn’t be happier with the product or the service. Thanks again Aamir!
