Optimum surround sound home theater reproduction places heavy demands on the center channel speaker, which in many respects is the main speaker in the system and often handles 50% or more of the program material. It is no place to compromise and settle for second best. All Definitive center channel series models are designed with the same rigid standards and high performance goals as main left and right front speakers and feature wide frequency response and extended dynamic range with extraordinary detail and articulation.
Non-Resonant, Low-Diffraction Cabinets Maintain Sonic Purity The resonant vibration of a loudspeaker's cabinet walls and baffles can also impart coloration. The tri-chambered monocoque cabinets of all Definitive L/C/R center channel models are constructed of extremely thick, dense medite with foam damping pads and extensive internal bracing. This virtually eliminates cabinet vibrations and resonance which would otherwise interfere with the pure sound produced by Definitive's high-definition drivers.
Definitive's High-Definition Die-Cast Basket Drivers are an Engineering Marvel The C/L/R2002 features Definitive-developed magnetically shielded high-definition cast-basket bass/midrange drivers for significant performance advantages in the areas of robust bass reproduction, lifelike midrange clarity and dynamic range. These sophisticated drivers are engineering marvels which incorporate deeply drawn mineral-filled polymer cones, combined with butyl rubber dust caps and surrounds, high temperature vented voice coils and massive magnet structures. This combination of features assures high definition, superb transient response, high efficiency, high power handling and extended linear response. In addition, the aerodynamically designed, non-resonant, cast-magnesium baskets minimize reflections of the sound radiating from the back of the cones and preserve structural and magnetic integrity.
Definitive's Moving-Coil Pure Aluminum Dome Tweeters The accuracy of high frequency reproduction really sets apart a great loudspeaker. The magnetic fluid-cooled moving-coil pure aluminum dome tweeters Definitive developed for the bipolar SuperTowers are of a unique design that synergistically brings together the performance advantages of metal domes (greater clarity) and soft domes (smoother sound and better dampening) in one state-of-the-art tweeter design. The tweeter’s voice coil sits in ferro-magnetic colloidal fluid which serves to cool the voice coil for exceptional power handling and also damps the system for smoother response and sonic accuracy. In addition, the unique silk surround provides better dampening and wave termination. The audible benefits of all this highly advanced engineering include velvety smooth extended high frequency response (beyond 30 kHz), greatly reduced distortion, improved transient response, notably higher definition and crystal clear life-like clarity.
Phase-Coherent Crossovers for Perfect Driver Blending The crossover network of a loudspeaker is the real heart of the system. It is like the conductor of an orchestra, telling each driver exactly when to come in and precisely how loudly to play. Definitive's complex and sophisticated Linkwitz-Riley designs, which utilize the finest components, are masterpieces of electrical engineering. They are differential crossovers which equalize the front and rear drivers separately for both linear frequency and phase response of their summed output. Also included are advanced technology Zobel Networks which provide a more stable load for your amplifier. This makes the speaker easier to drive, which results in smooth, more natural sound. The result is a symphony of sonic perfection that completely preserves the phase coherence, transient response and dynamic integrity of the original signal.
