INTRODUCING THE PRIME TOWER
PRIME TOWERS: PILLARS OF PERFORMANCE—STEREO TO CINEMA
Delivering immersive, full-spectrum sound, the Prime Towers anchor an amazing listening experience. Their combination of both sonic accuracy and lively dynamics elevate movies to an immersive experience and the highlight the subtle nuances of your music. They are remarkable on their own in a two channel system, and in a home theater, the Towers’ voicing match and seamlessly meld with the other Prime or Ultra speakers in your system. The result: a suspension of reality that takes you to the center of the action—be it a mosh pit or jet fighter cockpit. Dialogue and vocals are clear and true. Bass grooves and explosions will rock the room. With Prime towers’ twin 6.5 inch woofers in each tower, you don’t need a stand-alone subwoofer if space won’t allow. (Should you have the room—and want the additional depth and dimension a dedicated subwoofer provides—Prime towers pair well with several SVS subwoofers, like the award-winning SB-2000.
With a detailed aluminum dome tweeter, dedicated midrange driver and dual long-throw woofers, the Prime Tower effortlessly cranks out clean, dynamic and powerful sound.
The innovative and sophisticated 3.5-way crossover has different crossover points for each woofer to deliver seamless frequency response with effortless low frequency extension. Translation – awesome bass response and a smooth, seamless transition to the midrange.
SVS took the 3.5-way crossover concept a step further – each woofer has a dedicated and completely separate internal compartment with its own custom port tuning frequency. The result is effortless, deep bass you need to hear in person to fully appreciate.
Similarly, the 4.5” midrange driver is mounted in its own dedicated and completely sealed compartment to ensure a smooth, precise and clear midrange free from standing wave coloration.
All this tech is packed into a handsome and sleek cabinet available in premium-grade piano gloss black or handsome black ash finish.
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 Prime Tower driver array features a 1” aluminum dome tweeter, 4.5” midrange driver, and dual 6.5" woofers
1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter
Light, efficient, and rigid, providing high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) with minimal distortion and the sense of utter transparency. It deploys a Finite-Element-Analysis (FEA) optimized diffuser to ensure the tweeter only has the perfect on-axis and off-axis frequency response. That way everyone in your listening room gets the best performance. Likewise, since we share these design traits with both the Prime and Ultra speakers, both product lines can blend well with one another while offering that SVS hallmark ‘airy’ presentation and incredibly unveiled highs.
4.5" MIDRANGE DRIVER
Dedicated to blending with the tweeter and the dual 6.5” woofers, while delivering natural, smooth, and clear vocals. The polypropylene cone is light and rigid to give a flat frequency response and the SPL necessary to keep up with the other drivers. Like all of the other woofers in the Prime and Ultra series, the 4.5” mid uses an aluminum shorting ring for reduced distortion, and a vented voice coil former to keep the motor assembly cool during high SPL playback. All of this is built on an all-new cast ABS-fiberglass composite basket for precise component alignment and an inert frame without resonances or added harmonics.
DUAL 6.5" WOOFERS
We built our groundbreaking new 6.5” bass woofers on an all-new cast ABS-fiberglass composite basket for precise component alignment and an inert frame without resonances or added harmonics. Like all of the other drivers in the Prime family, the polypropylene cone is light and rigid to give a flat frequency response and the SPL necessary to keep up with the other drivers. Like all of the other woofers in the Prime and Ultra series, the 6.5” woofers use aluminum shorting rings for reduced distortion, and vented voice coil formers to keep the motor assemblies cool during high SPL playback. For perfect bass extension each woofer is in its own rear-ported and individually tuned enclosure. This way each woofer works in symphony to achieve the deepest and cleanest bass possible.
SOUNDMATCH CROSSOVER INTELLIGENTLY DESIGNED FOR YOUR LISTENING ROOM
Our exclusive SoundMatch crossover sports premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors, and heavy-trace printed circuit boards. All of these high-quality components yield lower distortion, tighter tolerances, better heat dissipation, and all around better sound. The innovative and sophisticated 3.5-way crossover is unique in that each woofer has its own discrete crossover, doubling the number of components used for the bass section, and allowing the woofers to work together without lobing in the vertical axis, which can cause cancellations at the listening area, and instead improves radiated sound power.
I think I owe Ammir at Summit Hi-Fi an apology. He bent over backwards to fill my order. I may have connected him with my long standing frustration with the difference in the CAN- US dollar. Apologies! Cheers!
I was always of the opinion that you didn't have to spend thousands of dollars to get good quality speakers. My brain hurt reading so many reviews from different manufacturers so at the end of the day I ended up purchasing the Prime Pinnacles. To me these didn't come cheap at 2K+, was I expecting more, yes because they don't seem that much better than my old set of Tannoy's that I had for the past 25 years. They are good I guess in saying that thought I never really heard a really expensive pair of speakers and for me that means around the 10K area anything more IMO is just a waste of money so it's kind of hard for me to judge. I know what I like when I listen to music and to me they sound good but it also depends on the source I find that to be a big factor. There are a lot of different variables when it comes to listening, the source for one and what you are using to drive them with. I'm not going to say I am not happy more content would be the better word. I would give them around a 6.8ish out of ten. I wanted them to blow my socks off and they didn't do that for me I think with a little more tweaking and refinement from SVS they could easily be closer to an 8ish I wouldn't go above that. Anything more and you're getting close to a perfect 10 and in the speaker world what is that because everyone has there own opinion of what speakers should sound like.
So that's it- Thanks
Beautiful towers, very well rounded speakers.
The Prime towers are excellent speakers. Clarity and tonality is great. The towers are also great with bass heavy tracks. They output tons of bass. The Primes blow away my previous Energy Connoisseur towers and those were great speakers.
These speakers sound incredible and look even better. They were the perfect way to upgrade my home theatre system. As far as value goes I think these are the best bang for your buck. There are a lot more expensive speakers out there that I don’t think could sound that much better. I am very pleased with my purchase
