Prime Pinnacle

World-Class Audio for Everyone

The ultimate expression of what SVS sought to create with the Prime Series loudspeakers is epitomized in Prime Pinnacle. Audiophile refinement and musicality without sacrificing wide dynamic range, deep, effortless bass and all the excitement of a world-class loudspeaker.

SVS acoustic engineers spent more time voicing Prime Pinnacle than any speaker in SVS history, in large part to create a loudspeaker that was equally suited to meet the demands of both discerning audiophiles and hardcore home theater fans. To go even further, Prime Pinnacle’s cabinet design was made to blend seamlessly and sound amazing in any listening environment.

World-class performance in both a two-channel HiFi stereo or an immersive home theater surround sound system, Prime Pinnacle is unrivaled in its class and well-beyond.

Audiophile Refinement. Breathtaking Home Theater Dynamics.

Design innovations in the Prime Pinnacle speaker harness qualities both discerning audiophiles and home theater fans will delight over. All-new driver array is optimized for massive dynamics and incredibly refined output while the cost-no-object cabinet design and materials, sophisticated components and inspired acoustic engineering combine for a floorstanding speaker that stands alone at its price and well beyond.

All-New 5.25" Midrange Driver with Composite Glass-Fiber Cone

Delivers pinpoint accuracy and broad soundstage for more immersive audio experiences. The majority of audio content in music and movies is present in the midrange frequencies so it’s imperative to have a driver capable of producing slam and impact as well as subtle details with tonal accuracy. Prime Pinnacle’s midrange borrows design elements from the reference Ultra Series to deliver uncompromised audio performance at all drive levels.

Premium 1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter

Renders crystal clear highs with lifelike realism even at reference volume. Light, efficient and impervious to distortion, the tweeter’s airy’ presentation effortlessly reveals every sonic detail with pristine clarity and unerring accuracy. The FEA-optimized diffuser ensures broad dispersion for a wide and convincing soundstage with pinpoint on- and off-axis frequency response so everyone in your room is treated with the same amazing audio experience.

Trio of 6.5” High-Performance Woofers

Effortless low frequency output and impressive deep bass extension from three 6.5” woofers lays the sonic foundation for all audio content. Engineered to convey the full thrill and excitement of cinematic blockbusters yet refined enough to handle the pluck of a bass guitar string and subtlest musical details with convincing realism, Prime Pinnacle delivers an amazing full-range listening experience with all audio content. By using three smaller woofers, each with its own 2-inch port, the new floorstanding speaker effortlessly conveys low frequency output while maintaining a slim profile that fits in any room or system.

Three Unique Port Tuning Frequencies

Individual tuning frequencies and separate sub-enclosures for the trio of woofers epitomizes the no compromise design approach taken with Prime Pinnacle. This design ensures all drivers blend seamlessly together so you get silky-smooth transitions from the midrange driver to the woofers as well as accurate frequency response, amazing refinement and crisp speed in transients; all without sacrificing deep, room-energizing bass.

SVS SoundMatch 3-Way Crossover

Creates an expansive soundstage with accurate frequency response and precise imaging for largest “sweet spot” possible. The 3-way crossover is uniquely tuned so each driver, from tweeter to midrange and midrange to woofers, blend seamlessly with each other while offering excellent on and off-axis frequency response and pinpoint spatial imaging for the most convincing audio experience possible. The crossover’s topology and architecture are consistent with all SVS speakers so Prime Pinnacle is timbre matched to integrate with any speaker from the acclaimed Prime or Ultra Series for the ultimate flexibility when building a system.

Sonically Inert and Rigidly Braced Cabinet

Four self-contained, acoustically tuned internal chambers eliminate any potential for resonances or sonic artifacts from the enclosure, resulting in pristine audio playback across the frequency spectrum. Tapered edges on the Prime Pinnacle speaker’s front baffle, known as chamfers, minimize edge diffraction for a clear and precise soundstage while features like shorting rings and tweeter diffusers provide acoustic enhancements with modern, high-end visual appeal.

Lifestyle-Friendly Footprint

Fits seamlessly in any room layout or décor. Slim enough to place next to furniture or near a wall, yet spacious enough to produce effortless output and reference sound quality, Prime Pinnacle delivers jaw-dropping performances in stereo and home theater systems from a classically handsome tower speaker design.

Outstanding sound!

I purchased the SVS Prime Pinnacle speakers from Summit Hifi in the summer of 2023 and am very pleased with them.
Wow! What presence in the low and smooth high frequencies. For the price ($3150, gloss black version), NOTHING can beat this ample and well-defined sound.
I looked at the many reviews including the EISA Award for Best Speaker in 2020-2021 and the review from Audioholics (https://www.audioholics.com/tower-speaker-reviews/svs-prime-pinnacle) which convinced me.
Thanks to Amir who gave excellent service.

Super Clear and Accurate

I have never heard such clear speakers. Close your eyes and it’s like your right there. The imaging across the front sound stage improved drastically, which surprised me as I didn’t think my old speakers were that bad! I’m powering with a Denon receiver and the power required for loud listening in my large room is very reasonable. I am also impressed by the bass output, when I turn off the sub and set speakers to reference, the frequency response seems very good from high to low. I was concerned the metal tweeter would be harsh, and it is not at all. Very flat response, not bright or dull, just blends in and sounds very realistic. I can’t imagine a speaker sounding any better than these for similar money. I’m happy with this purchase.
I also have SVS Prime centre, elevation surrounds and PC2000 subwoofer. All components work extremely well together, as expected.
Customer service was excellent with very quick, friendly communication.
Delivery took 3 weeks, which was a little longer than expected, but acceptable. Shipping company was a disappointing experience, but that’s not Summit’s fault at all.
One small clarification for customers, I guess the 30 day price protection only covers if Summit lowers their price, not for price matching other retailers. This is acceptable, I just did not find it to be clear when I read the ‘Bill of rights” so I thought it was worth mentioning to help other customers.
Overall this was a good purchase experience for excellent speakers at a reasonable price. I won’t hesitate to recommend Summit Hifi to my friends.
Thanks

Great speakers and great store

Those speakers are my best purchase of the decade, no exaggeration, and many thanks to Aamir for following up fast and often about delivery.

venting

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!
