CMT-340SEC DESCRIPTION

 

After 2 full years of intense engineering, we were finally ready to introduce a center channel accurate enough to call our own.

The heart of our new 340SE center is its advanced bi-wireable crossover featuring EXBAC. EXBAC is our coined term for Extended Baffle Compensation, resulting in natural and full sounding vocals free of typical honkiness and thinness. EXBAC helps compensate for the additional negative diffraction losses created by typical center channel placement, such as being placed on a shelf or TV stand, in a bookshelf or entertainment center

This center channel speaker offers incredible performance per dollar.

CMT-340SEC FEATURES

 

  • Hand assembled, tested, and packaged in the USA!
  • Front baffle features radiused edges which reduce negative diffraction effects.
  • Wide dispersion 27mm soft-dome chambered tweeter for smooth and accurate on- and off-axis room response. Custom manufactured for us by SEAS of Norway.
  • Real woofer phase plug linearizes and widens dispersion, improves voice coil cooling (extending woofer life) and improves airflow thereby increasing efficiency and power handling.
  • Flush mounted drivers and grille mounts minimize diffraction and reduce high-frequency baffle reflections.
  • Dual proprietary 6.5" polygel woofers (composite fibers stabilized with an acrylic polymer-gel) provides exceptional stiffness yet is extremely lightweight and well damped, providing tight bass, accurate mids, extremely low stored energy and accurate transient reproduction.
  • Internally flared rear port tube enhances bass response and lowers distortion.
  • 5 way gold plated brass binding posts ensure low resistance and a secure connection to a wide variety of speaker cable connectors.
  • Advanced bi-wireable crossover with EXBAC, gold plated jumpers, air-core inductors and metallized polypropylene capacitors in the direct signal path.

CMT-340SEC SUMMARY

 

As evidenced by this speaker's impressive measurements, which were taken with the speaker sitting atop a large TV, on-axis frequency response is linear. Dialogue sounds upfront, natural, and clean, even when sitting off-axis.

Dynamics are startling and you'll swear that every cling of a bullet ricochet, the clang of two swords striking each other, and the impact of a fiery car crash are taking place directly in front of you, in your own living room!

With carefully controlled timbre matching and accurate sound reproduction, we have created a center channel worthy enough to be matched with our award-winning line of loudspeakers.
