But at SVS beauty is never just skin-deep. 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 stunning Ultra Tower cabinet design yields 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-optimised to maximize acoustic transparency.
Each cabinet also employs two separate sealed mid-range enclosures to optimize performance and minimize negative interaction between drivers. In addition, the cabinet bracing is FEA-optimised, the cabinet mid-range/tweeter baffles are 1″ thick and the woofer baffles are an amazing 1.5″ thick. This robust construction eliminates structural resonances and ensures the cabinet remains acoustically inert for uncolored response even at the highest drive levels.
The proprietary SVS drivers utilise the finest materials and design features to ensure the highest sound quality and performance. The Ultra Tower driver array features a 1″ aluminum dome tweeter, dual 6.5″ mid-range drivers and dual 8″ horizontally opposed woofers.
Light, efficient, and rigid, providing high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) with minimal distortion and the sense of utter transparency. It deploys a Finite-Element-Analysis (FEA) optimised diffuser to ensure the tweeter only has the perfect on-axis and off-axis frequency response. That way everyone in your listening room gets the best performance. Likewise, since we share these design traits 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.
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.
Also, 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.
The unique SoundMatch 3.5-way crossover features a tapered array, which supplies each mid-range driver with an optimised frequency band. Only the top mid-range crosses over to the tweeter, while the bottom mid-range is tapered to minimise the potential for off-axis lobing at the critical mid-range-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.
