Ok I purchased the SVS Ultra Towers and the Ultra Center and am pretty happy with them, especially with movies. I am driving them with an Outlaw 7200 so they really sing. I'm using a pair of Vanderstein Model 1B's for the surrounds but would like to replace them with SVS speakers. I'm thinking about the SVS Ultra Bookshelf speaker but then I got thinking about the SVS Prime Towers.
Any thoughts as to which might sound better, match the Ultra Towers, etc.?

Either will match up tonally, because SVS designed them that way... as well as they are ambiance speakers for the most part. I have used both (back and forth between higher mounted bookshelves/wall speakers and floorstanding... with several different models) and have not been able to tell a difference either way. I think it comes down to your personal preference.

I bought sonnie's ultra system and couldn't be happier. For my understanding the tweeters on both ultras and primes are identical. I'm running the ultra bookshelfs and I see no issue with these as a surround speaker. I suppose you could buy two prime bookshelfs for the same price as one ultra. Honestly for the surrounds I think the Prime bookshelfs would be a good match and only set you back 500 bucks
