SVS Prime Elevation – The world’s most versatile hi-performance HT speakers.

SVS Unveils A Speaker Flexible Enough to be Placed Almost Anywhere


The perfect height speaker solution to stunning performance as full range height effects of Immersive Surround formats (Dolby Atmos, DTS:X) speakers

Compact, trapezoidal speaker is primed for ceiling, on-wall, speaker stand or shelf mounting in several arrays, and is said to sonically punch well above its class for a speaker of its size and price.

It directly radiates full-range sound without the frequency response limitations and “perfect room” required of prevailing “ceiling bounce” height effects speaker designs.

Specially optimized angled front baffle, precisely tuned acoustics, high-end components.

“Because the entire Prime series is timbre matched, the addition of the Prime Elevation to the lineup vastly expands the potential of the system. It’s nice to see reflected sound elevation channel option that isn’t tied to one specific immersive format.”
Mark Henninger,

“Adaptable is the term best used to describe SVS’s new Prime Elevation speakers. The trapezoidal speakers are flexible enough to be used for a multitude of home theater configurations.”

“Because many audio and home theater enthusiasts cannot install in-ceiling speakers, the Prime Elevation speakers provide a perfect solution for individuals who want to take advantage of immersive audio formats such as Dolby Atmos, DTS:X, and Auro 3D.”
Poor Audiophile

“While we would all love to have the perfectly shaped theater room, or even dedicated space, it’s almost never a reality and that’s where a directional speaker like Prime Elevation can make a mountain of difference. I think it’s a fantastic idea.”
