SVS has announced a new Prime Pinnacle speaker, which the company says delivers audiophile refinement and musicality without sacrificing dynamic range, and deep, “effortless” bass. Prime Pinnacle speakers include a driver array with 5.25-inch midrange and three 6.5-inch woofers housed in separate ported sub-enclosures, and a high-performance 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter. Prime Pinnacle’s midrange includes a glass-fiber composite cone and design elements from the reference SVS Ultra Series speakers.
The speakers are designed for both stereo and home theater applications, affording the “full thrill” of cinematic content, as well as rendering the “subtlest” details on music. Three 6.5-inch woofers, with their own 2-inch ports, allow for musical bass, while maintaining a slim, room-friendly footprint. Three port tuning frequencies and separate sub-enclosures for the trio of 6.5-inch woofers ensure all drivers blend together from the midrange to the woofers, while achieving an accurate frequency response and “audiophile refinement.”
A SoundMatch 3-Way crossover is tuned so each driver – from tweeter to midrange and midrange to woofers – blends for a soundstage with “accurate frequency response, precise imaging and the largest sweet spot possible.” Prime Pinnacle speakers are timbre-matched to integrate with speakers from the Prime or Ultra Series for added flexibility when building a home theater speaker system.
“When we set out to design the Prime Pinnacle speaker, it was supposed to be a straightforward execution that came as close to the performance of our reference Ultra Tower as possible, but in a more room-friendly cabinet design at a lower price,” said Gary Yacoubian, President, SVS. “The reality is, we spent more time voicing Prime Pinnacle than any speaker in SVS history so it would be equally suited for the demands of discerning audiophiles and hardcore home theater fans. To go even further, Prime Pinnacle’s profile had to blend seamlessly and sound amazing in any listening environment. The dedication paid off because it truly stands alone at its price and well beyond.”
Prime Pinnacle speakers have a rated bandwidth of 29Hz-25kHz (+/-3dB) and include 5-way binding posts and a cloth grille with pin/cup retention system. The floorstanding speakers come in a Piano Gloss Black finish or Black Ash wood grain finish.
Pricing for each individual speaker is $799.99 (premium Black Ash finish) and $899.99 (Piano Gloss Black finish), both of which are available now.
