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.
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
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.

SVS Ultra Center Speaker
Excellent addition to my home theatre! I am very pleased with the sound this speaker delivers no matter what the source material is. Thanks again to Aamir for his awesome customer service!
I can't believe the clarity and detail from this speaker. I upgraded from my polk CSiA6 to the Ultra center and I'm never looking back. Movie and TV speach is so much clearer at any volume level! I no longer have to strain and focus on what people are saying... its just like you're right there in front of the actors now. As great as this speaker sounds the piano black makes it look like a real work of art. Well done SVS and thank you to Summit HiFi for the great customer service!
Summit should offer courses in customer service.
At first I wasn't sure about spending the extra money on the Ultra versus the Prime centre but I'm glad I did and is a perfect match with the Ultra towers I purchased at the same time. Excellent sounding centre and I'm also finding how good it sounds musically. Along with Aamir's wonderful service a very good choice!
