Instant Surround-Sound Home-Theater Excitement: Invigorating SVS Prime Satellite 5.1 System Features Five Powerful Speakers and Compact SB-1000 Subwoofer with 12-Inch Driver

Save more than $170 over the cost of buying the speakers individually and get a fantastic, surround-sound home-theater package with the SVS Prime Satellite 2.1 System, featuring five Prime Satellite speakers and a compact albeit powerful SB-1000 subwoofer. SVS Prime Satellite can serve as front, surround, or height-effect speakers and fully equipped to deal with the dynamic challenges today's advanced movie soundtracks present. Displaying innovations from the development of SVS's award-winning subwoofers and critically acclaimed Ultra Series speakers, Prime Satellite's one-inch dome tweeter and 4.5-inch midrange deliver subtle micro cues and realistic ambient information that turn cinema sound into a thrilling and immersive experience.

In addition, SVS's propriety SoundMatch crossover design and FEA-optimized tweeter diffuser enable Prime Satellite to throw holographic images in whatever direction it faces. Thick baffle construction and substantial internal bracing enable Prime Satellite to produce the kind of prodigious bass response you'd likely expect from larger speakers. Such attention to detail and application of innovative science inspired Digital Trends to effuse, "With effortless performance, elegant design, and striking value, SVS' Prime Series hits the ultimate sweet spot in the audiophile segment."

A top-to-bottom overachiever, SB-1000 belies its ultra-compact 13-inch cabinet size with a front-firing 12-inch driver, FEA-optimized motor, Sledge STA-300D amplifier, and cutting-edge DSP engine. Look at SVS' lightest and littlest sub as a heavyweight in the flyweight class. At first glance, it's easy to underestimate the abilities of SB-1000. But when it erupts with deep, hard-hitting low-frequency output, there's no mistaking it as a bona fide, high-performance home-theater subwoofer. The lightweight cone material comprising the long-stroke driver reproduces subtle audio tones and realistic impact. Durable rubber surrounds ensure long-lasting performance.

An integrated SVS Sledge STA-300D amplifier with sophisticated DSP matched to the unique driver and cabinet configuration, and an equalization curve optimized for enhanced transient response and room gain, serves the driver. Conservatively rated at 300 watts RMS, 700+ watts peak power, the Sledge amplifier maintains precise control of the subwoofer at all drive levels – meaning you can push it to reference volumes without distortion. The advanced DSP engine also allows for fine tuning of audio playback and easy setup and integration into any home-theater or stereo system.

Because thermal management is critical when dealing with a powerful amplifier and motor in a compact sealed cabinet, SVS implemented a unique vented pole piece and efficient high-power voice coil to keep SB-1000 cool. A rigidly braced, sonically inert cabinet and five-year unconditional manufacturer's warranty round out a subwoofer whose size remains at odds with its ability.

Prime Satellite Drive and Tweeter Design
Thoughtfully designed for acoustic excellence, the 4.5-inch midrange is mounted in its own dedicated and completely sealed compartment to ensure smooth, precise, and clear output free from coloration. The cone material is extremely light and rigid and maintains a flat frequency response with excellent handling across the foundational midrange frequencies. Prime Satellite's one-inch aluminum dome tweeter is light, efficient, and rigid, and plays crystal clear at high volumes. The clarity offers a sense of utter transparency, while offering an ‘airy' presentation and incredibly unveiled highs so female vocals and dialogue always sounds natural, crisp, and smooth.

Innovative SoundMatch Crossover
SVS' SoundMatch two-way crossover features a tapered array designed to minimize the potential for beaming. This creates an expansive, yet focused and precise soundstage, with accurate frequency response at all listening positions in the room. The precise tuning of the SoundMatch Crossover also ensures pinpoint accuracy of highs, mids, and lows, while maintaining pristine signal purity.

Performance-Driven Cabinet Engineering and Geometry
Tapered edges on Prime Satellite's front baffle, known as chamfers, minimize edge diffraction for clear and precise soundstaging. The cabinet's presence offers a modern industrial feel with acoustic enhancements like shorting rings and a tweeter diffuser which add performance-driven style. All these advancements are packed into a compact but attractive cabinet that's easily mountable.
