Ultra Elevation

The Culmination of Sonic Obsession.

When SVS first launched the Prime Elevation speaker, it turned the home theater world on its ear by delivering a direct radiating Dolby Atmos height effects speaker that vastly outperformed any of the conventional “ceiling bounce” models and in-wall speakers. Since that time many brands tried to copy the approach, but none could deliver the total package of performance and versatility. For this reason, it emerged as one of the most popular home theater speakers in the world paired with all different brands.

Ultra Elevation is a larger, higher fidelity version that unleashes greater dynamic output and deeper low frequency extension. It uses the same multi-angle mounting hardware for the ceiling and wall. Ultra Elevation is an ideal speaker for Dolby Atmos or home theater surround sound channels, especially when placement options aren't perfect.

An angled front baffle, diamond coated aluminum dome tweeters, multi-angle mounting bracket, and other advancements embody the uncompromising approach to speaker design.

These innovations are brought to life with painstaking anechoic and real-world voicing. This final bit of artistry place Ultra Elevation among the finest sounding home theater speakers ever developed.

The joy of pristine clarity, absolute transparency, stunning dynamics, and effortless bass for more people than ever. SVS Ultra Elevation deeply connects you to the emotion of sound.

Diamond Coated Aluminum Dome Tweeter  

Through a process called Vapor Deposition, a layer of diamond carbon is applied to the aluminum dome tweeters to vastly improve rigidity and acoustic properties.

This breakthrough in material science raises the frequency response well beyond the limits of human hearing resulting in effortless, airy, and unveiled highs with no measurable distortion.

Organic cell lattice tweeter diffuser protects the dome and employs semi-random pattern derived from organic cell structures to improve off-axis response and maximize the listening “sweet spot.”

The diamond coating also pushes low frequency extension of the tweeter deeper for more seamless blending with the midrange.

Optimized Angled Front Baffle 

Designed for optimal acoustics and dispersion qualities whether used in down-firing, side-firing, or up-firing array.

5.25" Glass Fiber Composite Mid-Woofer  

Superb stiffness to mass ratio renders stunning midrange dynamics with flawless tonal accuracy, and deep, accurate bass.

Versatile Placement with Multi-Angle Wall/Ceiling Mount 

Ultra Elevation offers unlimited placement options in a room.

Easy mounting to the wall or ceiling with included Multi-Angle Wall Bracket enables installation overheard or directly to a wall in an up-, down-, or side-firing position.

Ideal solution for Dolby Atmos height effects and side/rear/back surrounds.

Superior Solution to “Ceiling Bounce” Dolby Atmos Speakers

The conventional approach to Dolby Atmos speakers, bouncing sound off the ceiling from below, requires perfect room conditions and frequency response limiting of the speaker.

By placing Ultra Elevation on the ceiling or high on a side, front, or rear wall; height effects can be enjoyed at full fidelity in any room, without the compromises of ceiling bounce or in-ceiling speakers.

Unrelenting Attention to Detail 

Acoustically tuned enclosure optimizes low frequency tuning and eliminates any potential for cabinet resonances, resulting in pristine sound across the frequency spectrum.

Uncompromisng 2-Way crossover with premium components seamlessly blends driver output. Subtle musical details are rendered with breathtaking clarity, while massive dynamics radiate with weight and control.

Precision-cast aluminum-alloy baskets ensure precise alignment of critical components and maximize thermal dissipation.

Chamfered front baffle minimizes edge diffraction for optimal off-axis frequency response.

"Accurate and immersive...a mature product from a company that is elevating its game to compete with the high-end offerings of the two-channel world."

AV Nirvana

"A harmonious blend of elegant design and high-performance audio components. Ultra Evolution is poised to deliver a new echelon of performance."

SoundStage

“Bass was impressively deep but also controlled and tight. What really took me aback was how neutral the midrange sounded and how refined the highs were. A superbly voiced loudspeaker.”
