    The Culmination of Sonic Obsession.

    SVS Ultra Evolution Center speaker represents the culmination of SVS breakthroughs in driver design, component materials, and cabinet architecture, married with a relentless passion for audio excellence. The science of sonic perfection in harmony with a love of convincing and immersive sound.

    With a true 3-way driver and crossover design, Ultra Evolution Center renders a broad and diffuse sweet spot so you can enjoy optimal sound in a wider listening area. This is especially important for rooms with multiple seating positions. Voices and sonic details are rendered with pristine clarity and exciting dynamics for more convincing movie and TV sound.

    Time-aligned cabinet geometry, diamond coated aluminum dome tweeters, organic cellular lattice diffuser, and other advancements embody an uncompromising approach to speaker design.

    These innovations are brought to life with painstaking anechoic and real-world measurement and voicing. This final bit of artistry places Ultra Evolution Center among the highest fidelity center channel speakers ever created.

    Our mission has always been to ignite a passion for transcendent music and home theater experiences by rendering the truest sonic playback.

    The joy of pinpoint accuracy, absolute transparency, stunning dynamics, and effortless bass for more people than ever. SVS Ultra Evolution Center deeply connects you to the emotion of sound.

    Driver Specs:

    1” Diamond Coated Tweeter

    • FEA-optimized Organic Cell Lattice Diffuser for airy, unveiled highs and pristine clarity.
    • Cutting-edge vapor-deposition grows a hyper-rigid diamond-like coating on an aircraft-grade aluminum dome, pushing high-frequency extension further beyond human hearing, and delivering best-in-class fidelity, linearity, and transient response.
    • Silver tinsel leads for optimal signal transfer and power handling.

    4.5” Midrange Driver

    • Composite glass-fiber cone with excellent stiffness/mass ratio for high sensitivity and pistonic behavior beyond passband.
    • Precision-cast aluminum-alloy baskets ensure precise alignment of critical components and maximize thermal dissipation.
    • Vented Kapton voice coil former is exceptionally lightweight for excellent dynamics and transient response.

    6.5” Woofers:

    • Long stroke motor and suspension for high output.
    • Composite glass-fiber cone with excellent stiffness/mass ratio for high sensitivity and pistonic behavior beyond passband.
    • Precision-cast aluminum alloy baskets ensure precise alignment of critical components and maximize thermal dissipation.
    • Vented aluminum voice coil former to maximize thermal control while minimizing air compression artifacts at high drive levels.

    Crossover & Cabinet Specs:

    Crossover:

    • 3-way crossover with premium-grade capacitors, inductors, resistors, and heavy-trace printed circuit board
    • Tweeter-to-Midrange crossover: 2.2 kHz
    • Midrange-to-woofer crossover: 450 Hz

    Cabinet:

    • Time-aligned cabinet geometry introduces microsecond-level time delays between the drivers, ensuring that the effective-acoustic-center of each driver is equidistant from the listener. The result is improved linearity and directionality throughout the crossover frequencies, and a more accurate soundstage.
    • Vertically Aligned Tweeter-Midrange array creates perfect on and off-axis frequency response and blending for clear vocals and the largest possible “Sweet Spot” ensuring transparency and clear vocals at every listening position.
    • Dual 6.5” woofers drive deep, accurate bass for the most demanding center-channel content.
    • 4.5” midrange driver in a dedicated acoustic-suspension sub-enclosure ensures pristine midrange output and blending with woofers and tweeter.
    • Chamfered front baffle and flush-mounted drivers reduce edge diffraction and improve on-axis and off-axis high-frequency response
    • Extra-thick 1” (25mm) driver baffle ensures a rigid, resonance-free mounting for all drivers.
    • FEA-optimized ¾” (18mm) cabinet construction, extensive bracing, and acoustic insulation eliminate acoustic and structural resonances, ensuring an inert enclosure and an uncolored response, even at the highest drive levels.
