What else to know about the CMC?Like its CM1 mini-monitor sibling, the CM Centre channel speaker borrows design and development features from the 800 Series 805S and similarly shares that model’s remarkable sonic and musical ability. Working together, the CM Centre and CM1 have few equals when it comes to compact multi-channel systems that make music as adeptly as they reproduce home theatre audio. The CM Centre’s symmetrically arranged driver line-up of twin 130mm Kevlar® cone bass/midrange units and a 25mm Nautilus™ tube-loaded aluminium tweeter are integrated by a minimalist, ear-tuned, first order network made possible by the remarkably wide bandwidth of the drivers. The CM Centre makes music as a seamless, cohesive whole, and displays a striking ability to resolve fine detail. AV centre channel speakers need surprising reserves of low frequency power and bandwidth, and despite its compact size, the CM Centre delivers on both. Flowport™ technology to minimize turbulence, and twin bass drivers featuring magnet system technology that reduces distortion, mean that CM Centre bass is deep, fast, tuneful and always ready to give more. An optional port sleeve that modifies the low frequency response shape allows positioning of the speaker right up close to room boundaries without compromise.
