What are Height Effects Speakers and Object Based Surround Sound?

Exciting new surround sound formats such as Dolby Atmos®*, DTS:X® and Auro 3D®, often referred to as “object based surround sound”, unleash the ultimate immersive home audio experience by incorporating sound effects emanating from overhead. Previously, surround sound only existed on a single plane, but Height Effects Speakers are introducing a higher dimension of home theater audio.

Direct Radiating vs. Ceiling Bounce Height Effect Speakers

The prevailing approach to height effects relies on a frequency response limited speaker beaming sound towards the ceiling from below in hopes that it will bounce perfectly back towards the listening area. Ceiling bounce results are unpredictable because of room shape, ceiling design and a number of other factors so it only works under perfect conditions.

Prime Elevation is an optimal height effects speaker because it directly radiates full-range sound to the listener, refuting the compromised ceiling bounce approach. Our novel solution provides an uncompromised listening experience for anyone who wants to enjoy maximum sonic impact from their state-of-the-art home theater.

Direct Radiating for Maximum Immersion and Impact

The SVS Prime Elevation is a direct radiating height effects speaker with full range dynamics and the refinement of a high end bookshelf speaker. Mount it high on a wall near the ceiling using the simple Multi-Angle Wall Bracket (patent pending) and object based surround sound can be enjoyed at full fidelity in any room, without the compromises of ceiling bounce or in-ceiling speakers.

Ceiling Bounce is Compromised and Unpredictable

The standard approach to height effects speakers, bouncing sound off the ceiling from below, requires perfect room conditions and frequency response limiting of the speaker, both of which negatively affect sound quality. Unfortunately, this method doesn’t work well in many rooms, and even when it does work, not all listening positions enjoy the same level of impact or immersive effects as they do with a full-range, direct radiating solution like Prime Elevation.
