SVS Prime Satellite - Satellites Redefined: High-End Audio Gets Small
From the moment you pick up and feel the Prime Satellite, you are aware that never before have affordable satellite speakers offered this level of audiophile design, high-end components and precise build quality. Jets thunder through the sky. Bullets graze your ears. Prime Satellites simply outclass the tiny and tinny surround speakers that are more form than performer. Prime Satellites revolutionize surround speakers—in fact, they employ many of the same components as their bigger brothers in the Prime and Ultra lines.

Strategically placed, they create awe-inspiring realism and seamless sonic transitions—front to back and side to side. When the lights dim and the score fades in they’ll flood your room with high-end sonics and action. Painstakingly voiced and sonically matched, Prime Satellites are designed to melt in with SVS towers, bookshelves or in a system all their own for endless listening possibilities.

Diminutive Size, Big Sound - Performance Value Redefined
Despite being small enough to fit into nearly any room and system, the overachieving Prime Satellite simply outclasses cheap HTIB speakers, packing the same technology, sound quality and performance as its bigger brothers in the Prime and Ultra lines.

Available in premium-grade piano gloss black or handsome black ash finish, the Prime Satellite is not only handsome but functional too - with an integral keyhole bracket which allows for easy wall-mounting.

Driver and Crossover Details
  • The 1” aluminum dome tweeter utilizes an FEA-optimized diffuser which delivers a very open ‘airy’ presentation and extremely unveiled highs.
  • The 4.5” woofer delivers surprising bass response and punch, and features a polypropylene cone, an aluminum shorting ring for reduced distortion, a vented voice coil former, and unique all-new cast ABS-fiberglass composite basket for precise component alignment.
  • The SVS SoundMatch 2-way crossover ties it all together with premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors and heavy-trace printed circuit boards. Expertly refined topology ensures a smooth response and transition between drivers with excellent polar response and phase coherency for amazing imaging.

“SVS’s Prime Satellite 5.1 system is as good as it gets for $1,000…a genuine achievement.”

"… have a surprisingly big sound… flawless in its performance…get a audiophile grade home theater system at a fraction of the cost."

“The Prime Center is a three-way design. I was happy to hear that SVS went with this design choice as it addresses the off-axis issues that are common to the two-way design short-cuts manufacturers sometimes take to keep prices down. At this price point, its refreshing to see that SVS chose to go with a three-way design.”

“When you listen to $100k systems all day, it’s difficult to be really excited about $1k speakers. But let me tell you, these speakers, when listening in nearfield, are some of the best I’ve heard in the budget speaker category.”

“The flagship of the Prime line is the Prime Tower, which costs $999/pair in matte black or $1199/pair in gloss black. It's a 3.5-way design; the bottom woofer is there only to help out with the low bass. In the demo it sounded incredibly smooth and neutral, especially for a $999/pair tower. Bookshelf models are also available.”

      Comments about SVS Prime Satellite:

      I personally like the ash/matte bi tone finish of the speakers. No refection from the tv and easy to keep clean vs gloss black. These sound freaking awesome. For the price you pay and the performance you get is incredible. These actually can be used for any speaker in your system be it surround, center, or mains. They Do need a subwoofer for the full range but so do most speakers. But that being said they sound great, just buy them and you will be happy.

      Comments about SVS Prime Satellite:

      Used as desktop. Actually returned speakers, soundstage a little small, BUT
      I am sorry that I returned them-wish I had them back. I really don't think there is a better speaker at anything near the price. Construction, parts & sound quality, finish, warranty, customer service--much, much better than other speaker companies.
      I have owned Harbeth, ProAc, Spendor, Focal / JmLabs, Magnepan, so I do know what good sound is about.
