SVSs high end tower speaker featuring a 1 inch tweeter, dual 6.5 inch mid/woofer, dual 8 inch bass drivers, and their exclusive SoundMatch crossover technology, designed for two-channel purists and home theatre fans alike. Standing at just over a meter tall, with a unique upswept trapezoidal shape and striking edge treatments, the Ultra Tower creates a dramatic visual statement.

Premium-grade finishes in piano gloss black and real black oak veneer complement this contemporary design. With SVS however, 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-optimized to maximize acoustic transparency.

Each cabinet also employs two separate sealed midrange enclosures to optimize performance and minimize negative interaction between drivers. In addition, the cabinet bracing is FEA-optimized, the cabinet midrange/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.


  • Tick Black ash and piano gloss black finish options
  • Tick Dual discrete sealed enclosure cabinet design for improved accuracy and performance, featuring non parallel cabinet panels to minimize driver inteaction and internal standing waves
  • Tick Crossover network delivers outstanding phase coherency and time domain behaviour
  • Tick Acoustically transparent and FEA optimised grilles minimise diffraction
  • Tick FEA-optimized cabinet and bracing eliminates resonances, edge diffraction and improves on-axis high frequency response
1 Inch Tweeter with Dual 6.5 Inch Mids

1 Inch Tweeter with Dual 6.5 Inch Mids

Light, efficient, and rigid, providing high SPL (Sound Pressure Level) with minimal distortion and the sense of utter transparency, the aluminium dome tweeter deploys a Finite-Element-Analysis (FEA) optimised diffuser to ensure the tweeter only has the perfect on-axis and off-axis frequency response. The dual mids use a glass- fibre composite cone, vented coil former, aluminium shorting ring and a cast basket to achieve the best possible sonic performance.

Dual 8

Dual 8" Force-Factor Woofer Array

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 sound stage 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.

SoundMatch Crossover Technology

SoundMatch Crossover Technology

The unique SoundMatch 3.5-way crossover features a tapered array which supplies each midrange driver with an optimised frequency band. Only the top midrange crosses over to the tweeter, while the bottom midrange is tapered to minimise the potential for off-axis lobing at the critical midrange-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.
