SVS Prime Elevation - Reviews, Prices, Specs and Alternatives
- The world’s most versatile high-performance home theater speaker, SVS Prime Elevation delivers stunning performances as an uncompromised, full-range Dolby Atmos height effects speaker and as an installation-friendly, multi-purpose home theater speaker.
- Ideal as a DTS:X or Dolby Atmos speaker for height effects because it directly radiates immersive, full-range sound to the listener without the frequency response limitations and perfect room conditions required of reflective “ceiling bounce” speaker designs. Precision tuned SoundMatch crossover, painstakingly refined 1” aluminum dome tweeter, authoritative 4.5” mid-woofer and acoustically inert cabinet converge in a speaker engineered for maximum sonic impact and immersion.
- Optimized front baffle geometry, precision tuned acoustics, high-end components and innovative mounting hardware grant Prime Elevation amazing versatility as side surrounds, rear surrounds and/or LCR speakers when ideal placement in a room isn’t possible.
- Installation-friendly Multi-Angle Wall Bracket (patent pending) allows mounting of the speaker in virtually any directions: up or down-firing, side or rear-firing, or directly overhead on the ceiling; to achieve the best possible performance from any position.
- “Too good to use only as height channel speakers. Highly recommended. A 10 out of 10 from me on this one." -Widescreen Review

Tweeters produce the highest frequencies in sound, typically anything above 2,000 Hz. Usually located at the top of the speaker, tweeters come in different shapes (detailed below) and sizes. Generally speaking, the size of the tweeter is not as important as the shape. But, for some guidance, consider that a larger tweeter (measured by diameter in inches or millimeters) will likely be louder and able to disperse sound over a larger area.
Speakers with midrange drivers (i.e., at least three-way speakers) have a distinct advantage over two-way speakers. Adding a midrange driver to the mix allows tweeters and woofers to focus on the sound waves they’re best equipped to produce—high tones and low tones respectively. More specific and focused drivers means more accurate, robust sound. Compared to the other drivers, midranges cover sounds, not surprisingly, in the middle of high/treble and low/bass tones. The human voice and most instruments fall into this range. For more sophisticated listeners, or for those who truly want the best sound reproduction, a midrange driver is crucial.
The woofer is the driver that is responsible for low frequency sounds and bass - crucial for well-rounded, booming sound. It is the biggest driver in size, and is usually shaped like a cone. When reviewing different bookshelf speakers, you will often see a measurement in the product name, starting as low as 4” and ranging to 6 ½” or more. This measurement refers to the diameter of the woofer. A general rule of thumb is a bigger woofer means louder, more powerful bass. But, as with any speaker metric, this number alone doesn’t describe the loudness of the speaker and should be taken into consideration with other measurements such as sensitivity, which describes the loudness of a speaker per watt.
