Our Review


The SVS Prime 5.1 is a compact and versatile home theater system that brings immersive sound to smaller spaces. This system includes five identical satellite speakers and a 12-inch subwoofer, offering a well-integrated sound experience. With an attractive design, good build quality, and impressive performance, the SVS Prime 5.1 aims to deliver a high-quality audio experience for both movies and music. Available in black ash or piano gloss finishes, this system starts at $999 in the US for the black ash version.

Design and Build Quality

The SVS Prime 5.1 system is designed with compactness and versatility in mind. The satellite speakers are identical, featuring a 4.5-inch polypropylene driver and a 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter. They come with cloth grilles and rear brackets for wall-mounting, making them suitable for various placement options. The subwoofer, on the other hand, is sealed and compact, measuring only 13 inches square. This allows for easy integration into different room setups without sacrificing performance.

In terms of aesthetics, the SVS Prime 5.1 system shines with its attractive design. The available black ash or piano gloss finishes add a touch of elegance to any home theater setup. However, it's worth noting that the glossy finish may be prone to dust and could be a concern if the system is frequently moved. Overall, the build quality of the system is commendable, ensuring durability and longevity.

Sound Performance

One of the standout features of the SVS Prime 5.1 system is its well-integrated sound between all the satellites. The system is capable of delivering a seamless and enveloping soundstage, creating an immersive experience with movies and TV shows. The detailed, fast, and enthusiastic performance with cinematic impact enhances the overall viewing experience, making it feel like you're in the middle of the action.

However, when it comes to music content, the system may have some limitations. Some users have reported that the SVS Prime 5.1 system can sound cold and bright, lacking warmth when playing music. Achieving the proper blend between the satellites and the subwoofer may require tweaking, as the satellite speakers may be better suited as surrounds rather than the main soundtrack. Additionally, the bass extension of the Prime Satellite speakers is somewhat limited when used without a subwoofer.

Subwoofer Performance

The SVS Prime 5.1 system's subwoofer delivers powerful and controlled bass response. With a 300W amplifier and a lightweight cone, it enhances the low-frequency output, adding depth and impact to movies and music alike. The compact size of the subwoofer allows for versatile placement options without compromising on performance. However, some users have reported that the sound of the satellite speakers can sound somewhat separate from the subwoofer, requiring adjustments to the crossover settings and subwoofer volume to achieve optimal integration.

Price and Value

Starting at $999 in the US for the black ash version, the SVS Prime 5.1 system offers a compelling value for its performance and features. While it may not be the most budget-friendly option, it provides a very respectable sound quality with a wide frequency range. The compact and versatile design makes it suitable for smaller spaces, allowing users to enjoy a high-quality audio experience without compromising on room aesthetics.

When compared to other systems in the market, the SVS Prime 5.1 stands out with its accurate and detailed sound reproduction. The system delivers immersive and high-quality surround sound, surpassing many other satellite speaker systems in its price range. While it may not have the same sonic capabilities as higher-end offerings, it still manages to produce big sound despite its small size.


In conclusion, the SVS Prime 5.1 home theater system offers a compelling audio experience for both movies and music. With its compact size, well-integrated sound, and attractive design, it is a great option for those with smaller spaces or those looking for a versatile setup. The powerful and controlled bass from the subwoofer enhances the overall audio performance, delivering a cinematic impact.

However, the system may have some limitations when it comes to music playback, as it can sound cold and bright, lacking warmth. Achieving the proper blend between the satellites and the subwoofer may require adjustments. Additionally, the satellite speakers may be better suited as surrounds rather than the main source of sound.

Overall, the SVS Prime 5.1 home theater system provides a great balance of price, performance, and value. It offers an impressive audio experience with movies and TV shows, creating an immersive and enveloping soundstage. For those in search of a compact and versatile system that delivers high-quality surround sound, the SVS Prime 5.1 is definitely worth considering.
