Girard, Ohio — Subwoofer supplier SVS launched its first full-range speaker, a pair of tower speakers in the Ultra series.
SVS sells online, direct to the end user and via select retailers. Pricing for the SVS Ultra Towers are $1,998/pair.
The 3.5-way tower feature a trapezoid-shaped cabinet whose non-parallel walls reduce standing waves inside the cabinet, effectively eliminating frequency-response colorations, the company said. The wedge-shaped front baffle and flush-mounted drivers are said to reduce edge diffraction and improve on-axis high-frequency response.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
