Active-Passive Speaker Pair: SVS achieved reference quality sound by
giving the Prime Wireless Speaker System true stereo separation from an
active-passive speaker pair thanks to a massively powerful 200 watt four-way
internal amplifier and brilliantly tuned digital crossover. The SVS Prime
Wireless Speaker System consists of one active Right speaker and one passive
Left speaker. An included 10' proprietary speaker cable connects from the active
Right speaker to the passive Left speaker (this cable cannot be lengthened or
- Class-D Amplification: A commanding Class-D amplifier delivers 50
watts to each driver for effortless power and room-energizing dynamic impact
with revealing clarity, even at reference volume. This 200 watts of Class-D
amplification presents an accurate and convincing stereo image from a true
2-channel active-passive speaker pair with crisp dynamics, neutral voicing,
a massive soundstage and powerful dynamics.
- Active Digital Crossover: By using an active digital crossover,
SVS engineers could painstakingly tune the Prime Wireless Speaker System to
achieve high sound quality from all types of audio formats. A function of
the extremely powerful DSP engine, the active digital crossover maximizes
performance of each driver by controlling power delivery and frequency
response with absolute precision.
Two-Way Driver Design: Each speaker features an acoustically optimized
1" aluminum dome tweeter and high-output 4.5" midrange driver for a crisp,
accurate and full-range stereo sound at any volume level.
- 1" Aluminum Dome Tweeter: The Prime Wireless speaker's
1" aluminum dome tweeter is light, efficient, and rigid, and plays crystal
clear at high volumes for an exceptional transient response. The tweeter
utilizes an FEA-optimized diffuser for even greater clarity with a sense of
utter transparency, while also offering an "airy" presentation and
incredibly unveiled highs so female vocals and dialogue always sound
natural, crisp and smooth.
- 4.5" Polypropylene Woofer: Thoughtfully designed for
acoustic excellence, the Prime Wireless speaker's 4.5" woofer is mounted in
its own dedicated and completely sealed compartment to ensure smooth,
precise and clear midrange and bass output that's free from coloration. The
polypropylene cone material is extremely light and rigid and maintains a
flat frequency response with excellent handling across the foundational
mid-range frequencies. The woofer utilizes a rugged motor and long-stroke
suspension for high output, along with aluminum shorting rings to reduce gap
inductance and lower distortion. Low frequency extension is shockingly deep
and effortless considering the cabinet size and the Prime Wireless speaker
can hit reference volume with amazing clarity, no distortion, and headroom
Performance Driven Cabinet Design: The Prime Wireless
Speaker System utilizes a FEA-optimized MDF cabinet with internal bracing to
eliminate resonances. The speaker cabinet's chamfered front baffle,
flush-mounted drivers, tapered edges, and acoustically transparent FEA optimized
grille minimize edge diffraction and improve on-axis high frequency response for
clear, precise sound staging. Each speaker cabinet also utilizes a 2.36"
wide-flared rear-firing port for greater efficiency and smoother response. All
of these advancements are packed into an attractive cabinet, that's available in
a piano gloss black.
High-Resolution 24-Bit/192kHz DAC: The SVS Prime Wireless Speaker
System utilizes a sophisticated 24-bit/129kHz DAC that maintains
complete faithfulness to the source material so music and all audio content
sounds precisely as the artist or producer intended whether a you are streaming
an online music service via DTS Play-Fi or listening to Bluetooth audio.
Bluetooth Audio Streaming: Thanks to built-in Bluetooth, you
can wirelessly stream stored music, music apps, and other audio content from
your Bluetooth-enabled source device (such as your smartphone, tablet, laptop,
or desktop) computer to the SVS Prime Wireless Speaker. In addition to
Bluetooth's SBC standard codec, the system supports aptX for wireless
"CD-Quality" sound from compatible source devices and AAC for better quality
playback from Apple iOS devices. You can pair multiple devices with the speaker
system, but only one can be used for playback at a time. Playback control and
song/artist/album display will still be done from your Bluetooth source device.
Note: The system does not support Bluetooth hands-free communication for
making and answering phone calls.
Analog & Digital Inputs: In addition to wireless network and Bluetooth
connectivity, the SVS Prime Wireless Speaker System features analog & digital
audio inputs. There are two analog audio inputs - a stereo RCA input and a stereo
minijack (3.5mm) input. The 3.5mm input will override the stereo RCA input if
both are used simultaneously. There is also a optical (toslink) digital input
for connection of a TV, Blu-ray player or game console. The optical digital
input supports 2ch PCM only (not compatible with Dolby Digital or DTS). Both
analog and digital inputs support multiroom distribution through the DTS Play-Fi
Subwoofer Output: A mono-RCA subwoofer output on the back of
the active Right speaker allows easy connection
to a SVS or other brand of powered subwoofer (sold separately - see Accessories
Tab) for deeper bass and a more-thrilling and immersive experience. An active Low Pass Filter at 80Hz is engaged when subwoofer detected.
Front-Panel Controls & Display: On the front-panel of the active Right
speaker are two 3-way rotary knobs and LCD screen. The 3-way rotary knobs are
used to control source & preset selection, as well as control volume, play and
pause. The front-panel display indicates source and preset selection.
Mounting Options: The SVS Prime Wireless Speaker System can be simply
placed on a table top, bookshelf, or stands. There are eight included
self-adhesive rubber feet that can be used on the bottom of the speakers to
protect your furniture. The feet add approximately 0.125" to the overall height
of the speakers. The speaker system does not provide any brackets, keyhole slots,
or threaded inserts to wall-mount the speakers.
Power Requirements: The SVS Prime Wireless Speaker System includes a
detachable 6' AC power cord which will need to be plugged into an AC power
outlet or surge protector (sold separately). This detachable power cord plugs
into the "Right" active speaker only. This system is not battery powered.
USB Charging Port: A rear-panel USB (type-A) port allows you to charge
your smartphone or tablet's battery. This USB port does not support media or
DTS Play-Fi Wireless Technology: The SVS Prime Wireless
