The Prime Center is what I had hoped for. Voice is very clear,. I've only used it for home theater but it handles the full range of sounds -voice, music, sound effects- very well.. It's also very well made

Finally - exceptional clarity in center channel

Replaced a Klipsch RP-250C with this SVS Prime center channel speaker; 5.1 home theater system powered by a Marantz SR-6010 AVR.The Prime center speaker is outstanding with excellent clarity for dialogue. The 3-way speaker configuration in this center channel greatly improves the critically important center channel better than anything else I have heard or auditioned. Prior to installing this we complained often about difficulty in understanding softly spoken dialogue - no longer a problem. Musical material handled perfectly too. This performs extremely well with the SVS SB-3000 subwoofer handling everything below 60Hz (determined by Audyssey MultEQ XT32 automatic room acoustic correction). The piano gloss black finish is beautiful but basically lost among the equipment positioning. Extrememly happy with this speaker!

Pros: Beautiful cabinet 3-way speaker design Refined sound

Cons:

Very clear dialogue

Upgrading from an old Sony satellite speaker system with clarity of TV/movie dialogue the primary goal. Tested this against a Polk CS10, Klipsch RP 500c, DefTech CS9040, and B&W HTM6. Placement: inside a BDI 8779 cabinet. AV receiver: Yamaha RX-A750. Polk is great for the price and blows my satellite "center" speaker away. However, the clarity does not match the other ones tested. Klipsch and B&W produced a little too much bass which muffled the voices despite trying multiple settings on my AVR--treble/bass, crossover. DefTech clarity was further muffled by the bass radiator on top-when placed in the cabinet, it created too much reverb. SVS Prime produced the clearest dialogue, and at a reasonable price. Very happy with the product and Crutchfield's customer support.

Replaced an aging Boston acoustics center speaker. Aging isn't the word! After set up I talked with your advisor Tim, and we decided to move system set-up from small to large. Whoa! Well balanced sound and crystal clear voice. Gives my amp something to do now! Looking at subs now. Uh oh,here we go...

Outstanding Center Speaker

Wow!!! Blows the Klipsch center channel speaker I had, away!!! My wife didn't know I upgraded the speaker and when I fired up the system to watch a movie for the first time after the swap out, she asked what I had done because the voices were so clear! Huge difference. Luv my SVS sub too. Now need to save for some SVS towers.

Pros: Never had a center channel this good. Clear and concise. Very high quality.

Cons: None
