The centre speaker has one of the most demanding roles in home cinema, so we took great care when designing SX70. It has to deliver critical information to support on-screen action, while unifying the left and right speaker outputs into one seamless soundstage. SX70’s designed to match the other speakers in the series, both sonically and aesthetically, to play a central role in your home theatre setup.
Home cinema speaker design starts with the cabinet. Computer-aided design (CAD) was used extensively to refine SX70’s internal structures, to ensure that while the drivers are vibrating with the soundtrack, the cabinet isn’t. This means that every millimetre of movement from the drivers is directed where it should be – at you.
SX70 has two 100mm (4") woofers made from treated paper. Audio manufacturers have used it for years, as paper’s impressive strength-to-weight ratio is matched by excellent tonality – so soundtracks sound rich and well defined. A 25mm (1") soft dome tweeter, made from treated silk, takes care of higher frequencies – like the finer points of dialogue.
Our team in London took great care and attention when designing the crossovers in SX70 – as they’re responsible for ensuring that each driver receives the correct frequency. Accuracy of timing and stereo imaging depend on (the) phase remaining completely linear, from top to bottom. The result? Your soundtrack is engaging, energetic and crystal clear.
Turn SX70 around to see that our attention-to-detail runs from front to back. In the centre, there’s a pair of high-quality speaker binding posts (connectors), which can accept thick speaker cable – with or without banana plugs. They’re carefully angled to make connection particularly easy.
New look SX70’s clean, understated design exudes confidence and will complement any AV rack. Leave the grille on to protect the drivers from little fingers, or to gain acceptance from your interior designer – alternatively take it off to celebrate your great taste in movies (and speakers).
