High-definition movie and multi-channel music soundtracks demand a high- performance surround speaker. The Ultra Surround rises to the challenge, delivering immersive and thrilling surround sound effects rivalling the finest commercial cinemas. For the ultimate in flexibility, the Ultra Surround can operate in three different surround sound modes: Bipole, Dipole and Duet mode. Duet mode creates two separate speakers within one cabinet, allowing true 7-channel surround sound with just two surround speakers instead of the more common four. Duet mode is very useful for enthusiasts who want to experience discrete 7 channel surround sound, but who lack the space for a separate set of rear surround speakers.

Performance and Sound Quality

When it comes to audio performance, the SVS Ultra Surround truly shines. It delivers immersive and thrilling surround sound effects that enhance your viewing experience, pulling you deeper into the on-screen action. The speaker offers three different surround sound modes: bipole, dipole, and Duet mode. This flexibility allows you to tailor the sound reproduction to your specific preferences and the layout of your room.

One standout feature of the SVS Ultra Surround is the Duet mode, which enables the speaker to create a true 7-channel surround sound experience using just two speakers. This mode intelligently distributes the audio signals to simulate the effects of a multi-speaker setup, providing an immersive soundstage without the need for additional speakers.

The sound quality delivered by the SVS Ultra Surround is impressive, offering a detailed and three-dimensional experience. The dual 1" aluminum dome tweeters and dual 5.25" woofers work in harmony to reproduce accurate and dynamic sound across a wide frequency range.

Whether you prefer a more diffuse sound or a focused audio projection, the SVS Ultra Surround gives you the flexibility to tailor the sound reproduction to your liking.
