It's rare, if not impossible to find a true 3-way center channel speaker at even close to what the Prime Center costs. Leveraging design elements and technology from the SVS Ultra Center, the Prime Center speaker features premium drivers and crossover components and sophisticated engineering that put it in a class by itself when compared to other center speakers in its class.

 

Center channel speakers are often considered the most underrated speakers in a home theater because they handle so much of the content yet are designed as afterthoughts by many audio brands. The SVS Prime Center accepts no compromises and anchors the front soundstage of a 5.1 home theater surround sound system or other set-ups with precision and power that complements even the most high-end multi-channel systems.
