SVS Tower Speakers

Tower speakers, (aka. floorstanding speakers) are typically full-range loudspeakers used as the main left and right speakers in a stereo pair or the front L/R channels in a home theater surround sound system. Although, they can certainly be used in other ways. Unlike satellite or bookshelf speakers, tower speakers are placed directly on the floor without the need for furniture or speaker stands.

Hallmarks a world-class tower speaker include wide dynamic range, accuracy at all frequencies and room-energizing sonic impact. To achieve this, all SVS tower speakers feature high-performance woofers, midrange drivers and tweeters blended seamlessly together with sophisticated SoundMatch crossovers. The result uncompromising sound that extends from airy, unveiled highs and a crystal-clear midrange down to accurate and room-energizing bass you can feel.

SVS manufacturers three different tower speakers, the Prime Tower, Prime Pinnacle and Ultra Tower. All three models embody all the characteristics of a true audiophile speaker - revealing clarity, unerring accuracy, and pinpoint transient speed. Every musical track is rendered faithfully to how the artist intended. SVS floorstanding speakers also unleash stunning low frequency extension and breathtaking dynamics, meaning they can reproduce all the thrills and excitement present in the most demanding action movie soundtracks.

Whether you’re a highly discerning audiophile or an action movie junkie who only plays at reference volume, SVS tower speakers deliver a thrilling and immersive experience.
