SVS Ultra Tower Piano Gloss Black Details

SVS Ultra Tower: The Flagship Tower Speaker
  • Floor Standing Tower Loudspeaker
  • Real black oak veneer and piano gloss black finish options
  • Dual gold-plated 5-way binding posts
  • 3.5in wide-flared rear-firing port
  • Cloth grille with pin/cup retention system
  • Elastomer screw-in feet - adjustable for level
  • Spiked metal screw-in feet included - adjustable for level

The Ultra Tower creates a dramatic visual statement by standing 45" tall with a unique upswept trapezoidal shape and striking edge treatments. Premium-grade finishes in piano gloss black and real black oak veneer complement this contemporary design.

The Ultra Tower delivers a deep and detailed soundstage with incredible resolution, absolute transparency, and amazingly rich and articulated bass - outperforming other brands costing two and three times their price.

The beautiful Ultra Tower cabinet design offers 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.

Each cabinet also incorporates two separate sealed midrange enclosures to optimize performance and minimize negative interaction between drivers. In addition, the cabinet bracing is FEA-optimized, the cabinet midrange/tweeter baffles are 1" thick and the woofer baffles are an amazing 1.5in thick. This robust construction eliminates structural resonances and ensures the cabinet remains acoustically inert for uncolored response even at the highest drive levels.

SVS Drivers: Extreme Performance and Uncompromised Fidelity
The proprietary SVS drivers use the top class materials and design features to ensure the highest sound quality and performance. The Ultra Tower driver array features a 1in aluminum dome tweeter, dual 6.5in midrange drivers, and dual 8in horizontally opposed woofers.

1in Aluminum Dome Tweeter:
It is light, efficient, and rigid, offering 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. So 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.

Dual 6.5in 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.

Dual 8in Woofers

  • 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

Forcefactor Woofer Array
The unique ForceFactor horizontally-opposed dual woofer configuration results in mechanical force cancellation for reduced distortion and cleaner, tighter bass response. The ForceFactor array also eliminates cabinet vibration, which could otherwise modulate the mid/high frequencies - so the soundstage is always stable and crystal clear.

Moreover, since the four woofers all fire in different directions, the acoustical loading and modal density in the listening space is greatly enhanced. No matter where you sit, the bass response will be effortless, smooth and accurate, and free of room-based anomalies.

Soundmatch Crossover Intelligently Designed For Your Listening Room
SVS exclusive SoundMatch 3.5-way crossover sports a tapered array which supplies each midrange driver with an optimized frequency band. Only the top midrange crosses over to the tweeter, while the bottom midrange is tapered to minimize the potential for off-axis lobing at the critical midrange-to-tweeter crossover frequency. The result is a smoother in-room frequency response and enhanced radiation of total sound power, along with a more generous sweet spot in the vertical axis for a convincing and stable sound stage. Naturally the SoundMatch crossover network also features premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors and heavy-trace printed circuit boards to ensure pure signal transmission.
