Product Details

SVS Black Ash Prime Tower Speaker - PRIMETOWERBLASH

The Prime Tower speakers set the bar for sound quality and high-end appeal among tower speakers anywhere near the price. The reference-grade SVS floorstanding speaker is amazingly transparent, with a broad, stable soundstage and sharp imaging of voices and instruments, all punctuated by deep yet accurate low frequency extension. Challenge the SVS Prime Tower Speakers with any dynamically charged music or movie soundtrack and it reveals new layers of sound and detail you never knew existed. With engineering and design cues taken from the acclaimed SVS Ultra Series speakers, the Prime Tower is a sonic achievement that stands up to the best speakers in the world.

Features:

  • 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
