It's rare, if not impossible to find a true 3-way center channel speaker at even close to what the Prime Center costs. Leveraging design elements and technology from the SVS Ultra Center, the Prime Center speaker features premium drivers and crossover components and sophisticated engineering that put it in a class by itself when compared to other center speakers in its class. The SVS Prime Center accepts no compromises and anchors the front soundstage of a 5.1 home theater surround sound system or other set-ups with precision and power that compliments even the most high-end multi-channel systems.

Well-equipped to play the most important role in a surround sound home theater, every aspect of the Prime Center speaker was designed for sonic excellence. From the premium grade drivers and sophisticated SoundMatch three-way crossover to the extra-thick baffle, internal bracing, and FEA optimized tweeter diffuser, the Prime Center channel speaker’s design and engineering features drive its performance into uncharted territory for a center channel speaker at its price.

  • Prime driver & tweeter design:  SVS Prime Center’s incredibly light and rigid polypropylene cone for the speaker’s mid-range driver provides a flat frequency response and generates the SPL necessary for stunning in-room dynamics and an expansive front soundstage. The mid-range driver’s sub-enclosure ensures no modulation from the robust woofers. The 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter is light, efficient, and rigid, playing crystal clear at high volumes for a sense of utter transparency, while offering an ‘airy’ presentation and incredibly unveiled highs so female vocals and dialogue always sound crisp, smooth and clear. 
  • Innovative SoundMatch crossover design:  Providing the perfectly balanced voicing for the Prime Center speaker is a proprietary SVS SoundMatch crossover that sports premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors, and heavy-trace printed circuit boards. This combination of high-quality components yields lower distortion, tighter tolerances and all around better sound for the critical, dialogue and action-focused front soundstage. 
  • Performance-driven cabinet design and geometry:  Tapered edges on the Prime Center speaker’s front baffle, known as chamfers, minimize edge diffraction for clear and precise soundstaging.  These advancements are packed into an attractively styled cabinet available in stunning piano gloss black or premium black ash finish.
