What else to know about the McIntosh XLS 360?The McIntosh XLS320, XLS340, XLS360 and XCS350 Loudspeaker Systems are designed for Home Theater and Music Reproduction. Many of today’s Loudspeakers are designed only for Home Theater applications, not so with these Loudspeaker Systems. They are also designed for the accurate reproduction of music. Motion picture sound effects, explosions, screams, and vehicle crashes require a wide dynamic range and high sound levels. These sounds are such that a speaker system having moderate distortion would reproduce them with little audible difference. This is not true with the reproduction of music. Music is by nature and definition harmonious. To reproduce it accurately, all forms of distortion, both harmonic and intermodulation, must be kept to a minimum. This has been the result of the design of the new McIntosh XLS320, XLS340, XLS360 and XCS350 Loudspeaker Systems. Each loudspeaker element and crossover component has been carefully designed for low distortion, durability and efficiency. The McIntosh XLS320, XLS340, XLS360 and XCS350 Loudspeaker System will reproduce music accurately and function as an excellent Home Theater Loudspeaker. The XLS320 is a two-way system with a 6-1/2 inch LD/ HP1 woofer/midrange driver and five 1 inch dome tweeters in a Bessel Function Array. The XLS340 is a three-way system consisting of two 8 inch LD/HP woofers, one 6-1/2 inch LD/HP midrange driver and five 1 inch dome tweeters in a Bessel Function Array. The XLS360 is also a three-way system with two 10 inch LD/HP woofers, one 6-1/2 inch LD/HP midrange driver and five 1 inch dome tweeters in a Bessel Function Array. The XCS350 Center Channel Loudspeaker utilizes two 8 inch LD/HP woofers, one 6-1/2 inch LD/HP midrange driver and five 1 inch dome tweeters in a Bessel Function Array. The XLS320, XLS340, XLS360 and XCS350 Loudspeaker performance is designed to complement the capabilities of McIntosh’s legendary line of Preamplifiers/Control Centers, Signal Sources Devices and Power Amplifiers, without imparting distortion or coloration.
