Love it. I first bought the Klipsch 450C RP and returned it for this. I personally think there is a huge difference. I highly recommend. And crutchfield like always made the return process easy and smooth. Even sent out this SVS Ultra first.
Pros: Nice bass and sounds like 3 front speakers in 1. Beautiful Piano Gloss
Cons: Keep cover grill on, or be like me and stare at it.

Wishing to upgrade certain components of my home theater I recently ordered the SVS Ultra Center and the SVS PB3000 subwoofer. Both are fantastic products. The Ultra Center must be heard to be believed. Whether its movies, music or simple dialogue this piece of equipment brings it with powerful clarity. Performance and quality are well above it's price. I highly recommend this center speaker. You will not be disappointed.
Pros: Performance, quality and value priced.
Cons: Are you kidding me!?

Best Center speaker ever. Looks stunning in black lacquer. A three way center is the way to go. The base response is fantastic for action movies. I'm trying to figure out how to mount SVS Ultra bookshelf speakers on the wall with a shelf that will look good. The Ultra bookshelf speakers are a must have after hearing the center.
Pros: Clarity of voice for a center speaker.
Cons: Caution: leave the speaker grill on or you will stare at the speaker and not the movie.

I purchased this speaker because I recently bought a SVS SB 300. The later is perfect for my set up. TheSVS Ultra Center is very good for voice in movies and tv. It is not as good as some others albeit that cost multiples of the cost of this speaker

I bought the SVS Ultra center channel to replace my Infininity Primus C351 center speaker that I had for a few years now. In the past, I have tried to be cost efficient when purchasing Home Theater equipment but now it's time for me to evolve since I'mable to spend more now. I'm not technical and do not know the terminology to describe speakers so my review will be at a very high level. I currently have the Onkyo TX-RZ820 receiver and the Outlaw 5000 amplifier. Last year I purchased two SVS PB12 NSD subs which are absolutely amazing. My problem has always been hearing the dialogue clearly. No matter how many changes I made to my settings I always had a hard time comprehending what was being said. Like something was covering my prior center speakers and the sound was muffled at times. I researched for some time and said to myself why not try SVS since I love my Subs. After researching I learned that SVS was known for producing quality Subs but was fairly knew to the game with other HT speakers. Well, my friend raved about his new SVS prime center speaker so I took the plunge and went with the SVS Ultra center because I've just been so frustrated with all my other centers. Well I have to say that I am absolutely blown away with this speaker. I have had it for about 3 weeks now and words are just so CLEAR now. I have even turned the volume down really low and I have been blown away how clear I could still understand and hear every word being said. Finally!!!!
Pros: Crystal clear voices

I bought this center channel speaker from Crutchfield over SVS because Crutchfield has a better return policy (60 vs 45 days) and is part of the freee Ebates cash awards program. This unit replaced a Polk CSi A6 center channel speaker that I bought from Crutchfield a few months ago. This SVS center speaker matches better with my two SVS Ultra bookshelf speakers and my SVS SB-2000 subwoofer. The exterior finish is beautiful. Its sound dies not disappoint. When watching a movie, the dialog is very clear and plays loud without distortion. For music, it's clear and free of distortion, even at loud volume. Don't skimp when buying a center speaker because most of the sound comes from the center. I recommend this speaker and it is priced correctly.
Pros: Material quality. Performance
