Bookshelf Speakers

SVS Ultra Bookshelf Speakers

SVS just released their Ultra Bookshelf speakers, which use proprietary drivers and an intelligent SoundMatch Crossover Network to create a larger-than-expected soundstage. Handsomely styled with a swept back profile and striking edge treatments, the Ultra Bookshelf draws design cues from the flagship Ultra Tower speaker with sonic-enhancing wedge-shaped front baffle and flush-mounted drivers. When engineering the Ultra Bookshelf speaker’s design, SVS envisioned a two-way monitor that would fill small to medium-sized rooms with an encompassing, coherent soundstage; deep, dynamic bass; and sparkling mid and high-frequency details, whether they were being pushed to extreme volumes or played at moderate levels. A combination of premium build materials, FEA optimization, cabinet innovation and careful selection of crossover frequencies brought this vision to life.

For low to midrange-frequency performance, the Ultra Bookshelf features a hefty 6.5-inch composite glass-fiber cone woofer which produces an excellent stiffness to mass ratio for high sensitivity and maintains pistonic behavior well beyond the pass-band of the driver. The Ultra Bookshelves are also equipped with SVS’ SoundMatch two-way crossover network. Premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors and heavy-trace printed circuit boards work in harmony to ensure pure signal transmission and radiation of total sound power to a generous sweet spot.

SVS Ultra Bookshelf Speaker“Listening with eyes closed, it’s easy to convince yourself the sound produced by the Ultra Bookshelf is coming from a speaker twice the size and price,” said Gary Yacoubian , SVS president and managing partner. “$1,000 gets you a pretty phenomenal audio experience and from a value perspective, these are already being discussed as among the most highly regarded two-way monitors on the market.”

The Ultra Bookshelf speakers weigh 19 lbs. each and are available in premium-grade piano gloss black and real black oak veneer finishes with a rated bandwidth of 45 Hz – 32kHz (+/- 3 dB).

Price and Availability

Pricing for the SVS Ultra Bookshelf speakers is $499 each ($998/pair). SVS sells online, direct to the end user, and via select retailers.  SVS offers a risk-free 45-day in-home trial, with free shipping both ways whether purchased online or at retail.
