SVS, best-known for its range of award-winning subwoofers, has released a pair of floor-standing stereo loudspeakers called Pinnacle, so-called because they’re at the top of the company’s ‘Prime’ range of loudspeakers. (Click on image above for larger version.)
The SVS Prime Pinnacle has three 165mm-diameter bass drivers, each in its own separate ported sub-enclosure, a 133mm fibreglass composite cone midrange driver and a 25mm aluminium domed tweeter and is rated with a frequency response of 29Hz–25kHz ±3dB, a sensitivity of 88dBSPL (2.83V @ 1 metre) and a nominal impedance of 8Ω. ‘The fact each bass driver has its own separate sub-enclosure, with each port tuned to a different frequency, epitomises the no-compromise approach SVS has taken with the Prime Pinnacle,’ said Sam Encel of Interdyn, which distributes SVS in Australia. ‘This unique design ensures all drivers blend seamlessly together for silky-smooth transitions from the midrange to woofers as well as accurate frequency response, audiophile refinement and crisp speed in transients; all without sacrificing deep, room-energising bass.’
The 25mm aluminium dome tweeter is fitted with an FEA-optimised diffuser. ‘This tweeter’s airy presentation of crystal-clear highs with lifelike realism effortlessly reveals musical and cinematic details with unerring clarity, even at reference volume’, Encel told Australian Hi-Fi Magazine, ‘while the diffuser ensures broad dispersion for a wide and convincing soundstage with pinpoint on- and off-axis frequency response so everyone in a home theatre or listening room is treated to the same world-class audio experience.’
The new SVS Prime Pinnacle has been timbre-matched to integrate with any speaker from SVS’s Prime or Ultra Series to enable flexibility when building a home theatre speaker system. ‘When we set out to design the Prime Pinnacle speaker, it was supposed to be a straightforward execution that came as close to the performance of our reference Ultra Tower as possible, but in a more room-friendly cabinet design at a lower price,’ said Gary Yacoubian, President of SVS.
The SVS Prime Pinnacle loudspeakers are available in either a black ash wood grain finish, for TBA per pair, or a piano gloss black finish for TBA2 per pair. (Australian distributor Interdyn has yet to announce on-sale dates or pricing.)
