How would they compare with Klipsch atmos module that can practically be installed same way?

That's an interesting question because Klipsch promotes using the module in that manner (as a surround), as well as an Atmos elevation module. I do have that module, and this week had planned to unpack the SVS Elevation system that I have on hand for review. I'm guessing that the SVS Elevation will be the more robust speaker for use in surround applications.

I am looking forward to your results.
Please see if u could favor us with some pictures or schematics of actual set up.
I have a pair of Martin Logan modules with my LCR motion XLS to do front atmos duty but some how I am not bowled over by the set up and possibly do have optimum placement either;(
Once I hear from your review of both, I plan to move ML as rear atmos and used either Klipsch or SVS as front height I used Klipsch for short period as front module but were too long for my shelf, but nevertheless I thought that Klipsch had more presence than ML! Even though I love ML and would not be much excited to another brand because of tonality preference

imagic....just wondering if you have got the chance to hook up and test the SVS Prime Elevations yet ? If so, please post your results. Thanks in advance.

What happened was SVS had sent me the elevations but then it sprung the new 16-Ultras, which basically got to cut in line and get ahead of the Elevations. But, your message is timely because I have Thursday of this week scheduled for setting up an all-Prime 7.2.4 system that uses the Elevations.

Great and a big thank you. I plan on going from a 5.1 to a 7.1 and would like to use the Prime Elevations for the rears. I have the SVS PB12 Plus sub and love it. The sound as well as the build quality are outstanding. So I assume that the Prime Elevations will sound very good and have great build quality as well. The rest of my speakers are Paradigm. Reference Studio 100's for fronts, CC-590 for center and surrounds are ADP-390 V.5. Since I love my SVS sub, I'm hopeing that the Prime Elevations would be a good match for the rear surrounds. Hopefully I can get these for Christmas as my girlfriend keeps bugging me for a list.

Looking forward to get your feedbacks on these speakers!

Hey Guys. I've been using them since two weeks now. SetUp is 5.1.4 on a Yamaha 3060. And so far Atmos is absolutely great. Those Spkrs are stunning. Precise while maintaining just the right amount of Dispersion. Listening to music with 9Ch Stero is also something new. Those SVS Elevation Primes are a definite recommendation from my side for anyone who is looking for a x.x.4 upgrade.

Can you share how you mounted them (high on wall? ceiling?)... and are you using SVS prime on the base 5ch setup or different speakers?

I mounted them High on front and rear Wall as recommended in the Yamaha User Manual. Will post Pictures tomorrow. The Base 5.1 is Focal Chorus 72x and a HSU ULS 15MKII Subwoofer. The SVSs blend in nicely with this Setup according to YAPO they needed to be adjusted by +1.5db compared to the base layer.

I have a pair mounted high on the rear wall serving for 11.2 rear or 7.2.4 Atmos high. They are paired with all Kef speakers.

These little speakers look great, and sound great. Highly recommended.

It doesn't look so, but do the mounting brackets included with the Elevation speakers allow for any side to side tilt? If I were to mount them in the preferred positions on the side walls (one pair in front of the MLP and one pair behind) facing straight out into the room would I still get proper immersion? Since Atmos wants ceiling speakers pointing straight down at the MLP, even when mounted high on the side walls, shouldn't the Elevation speakers be tilted towards the MLP? Front heights pointing back a bit and the rears pointing forward a bit? I could (and it would be easier to) mount them on the front (above the two front speakers) and rear walls facing the MLP "better". If the preferred position is on the side walls, but tilted in a bit, what's the advantage of the Elevations over the regular Bookshelf speakers using a tilt mount?

Here are some Pictures of how they fit into my small room. As you can see the locations are not perfect but with YAPO and a little tweaking they work just fabulous.

This is awesome. Looking forward to grabbing a pair for front heights (or maybe top middle heights) and trying them out. Appreciate you guys' statements.

I think you must be confused, these are standard passive speakers which connect to an amplifier with speaker wire. These are not self-powered computer speakers that can directly accept a USB input.

imagic,
It's been almost a month. I know, Turkey day was upon us, but now it's passed, and pretty soon, Santa will be arriving. Have you had the chance to set up and listen to the Prime Elevations in your 7.2.4 system ? Thanks in advance.
