CBM-170 SE Intro

CBM-170 SE speaker

Our goal was to build a compact high-end bookshelf loudspeaker that accurately reproduced what most other speakers in this class shy away from: true, natural sounding vocals.

To accomplish this feat, we knew we would have to create a loudspeaker with incredible accuracy and extremely low distortion.

arrow Our 27mm custom built high-definition soft dome tweeter is state-of-the-art, featuring a double-chambered neodymium magnet, ferrofluid cooled voice coil, wide dispersion faceplate, and an extended frequency response. This new tweeter is capable of incredibly low distortion at even high power levels.

arrow We were unable to find a woofer that met our demands so we designed our own. Our proprietary 6.5" woofer features an exclusive composite polygel cone, phase plug, rubber surround, high excursion and very low distortion.

arrow To provide a seamless blend between the drivers, we designed an advanced computer optimized double layer crossover. By isolating the woofer's filter section from the tweeter's, intermodulation distortion is greatly reduced, thereby improving the clarity of both the highs and lows.

arrow Furthermore, we used only the finest crossover materials including polyester-film bypass capacitors, air-core inductors and gold plated binding posts. We guarantee you will not find a more advanced crossover in any competing loudspeaker at even twice the price of the CBM-170 SE.
