Center channel speaker (Premium Black Ash)

The starring role in an SVS Prime home theater

I've always been partial to 3-way center channel speakers, because that dedicated midrange driver covers the frequency range where dialogue lives. The SVS Prime Center is one of the lowest-priced 3-way centers I know of. But don't worry, it offers the rock-solid build quality and lifelike sound that SVS is known for.

SVS designs every driver in house

While many companies build their speakers using off-the-shelf components, SVS designs all their drivers in house. This is a huge advantage because it gives them complete control over how the drivers, crossover, and cabinet interact.

The Prime Center uses dual 5-1/4" woofers to produce center channel effects with unconstrained punch and impact. The polypropylene cone material is extremely lightweight and rigid, allowing the woofers to sound smooth and natural through the midrange, while also delivering surprisingly solid bass.

The 3-1/2" midrange driver is housed in its own sub-enclosure within the cabinet, to minimize internal interaction with the woofers. SVS's 1" aluminum dome tweeter sits right above the midrange driver, which helps the output from the two drivers blend more smoothly.

Smart, solid construction

The Prime Center's cabinet is made of sturdy MDF, with an extra-thick front baffle and internal bracing to control unwanted vibrations. Those tapered edges on the front baffle are called chamfers. They reduce edge diffraction for clearer, more precise soundstaging. (Those are the only corners SVS ever cuts!)
