SVS Prime Bookshelf Speakers offer world-class performance in a compact form. Designed for two-channel purists and home theater fans alike, you will not simply find a finer bookshelf monitor available at even twice the price. Equally good for front in home theater or 2-channel settings, or even as a surround speaker. No matter what your listening preference, the Prime Bookshelf is the most flexible performer in the Prime speaker line. The handsome styling and high-end finishes result in a premium look that inspires pride—even before you’ve hit the power button. Matched with both the Prime and Ultra Center, Prime Satellites, and SVS subwoofers, the Prime Bookshelves can be the cornerstone or a stunning supportive element to any audio system.

In a 2-channel setting, Prime Bookshelf can deliver a full and rich stand-alone audio experience with a 6.25" woofer for deep and articulate bass and a 1" aluminum dome tweeter for air presentation and unrivaled highs —true to the legacy of high-end, 2-way monitors. Stereo purists will rejoice at the amazing imaging, soundstage and fidelity delivered by the Prime Bookshelf. Whether you’re set for a Saturday evening with a single malt and Dylan, or enjoying freshly ground coffee Sunday morning with Brubeck – the Prime Bookshelf has all it covered.

SVS Drivers: Extreme Performance and Uncompromised Fidelity
The proprietary SVS drivers utilize the finest materials and design features to bring out the highest sound quality and performance. The Prime Bookshelf driver array features a 1" aluminum dome tweeter and a 6.5" woofer.

1" Aluminum Dome Tweeter is 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. Thus everyone in your listening room gets the best performance. Likewise, since these design traits are shared 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.

The groundbreaking new 6.5" bass woofer is built 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” woofer uses aluminum shorting rings for reduced distortion, and a vented voice coil former to keep the motor assembly cool during high SPL playback. For perfect bass extension, the cabinet is rear ported and tuned perfectly for the 6.5" woofer.

Soundmatch Crossover Intelligently Designed For Your Listening Room
SVS 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 2-way crossover is uniquely tuned so each driver can blend perfectly each other while offering the best on and off-axis response, at the same time maintaining phase coherency and razor sharp time domain behavior.
