CT MAIN 170

Characteristics and sound properties

The CT MAIN 170 speaker was originally developed as a main loudspeaker for home video applications but is equally well suited to listening to hi-fi music. This enclosed 3-way cabinet features a front bafflearrangement based on the D Appolito principle arranged symmetrically around the 25 mm titanium SC 4 ND 4 Ohm tweeter with neodym magnets. The loudspeakers used, W 100 SC 4 Ohm and W 170 SC 4 Ohm, are magnetically shielded. In order to suppress any unwanted interference by the baffle on the radiation pattern, the entire mid- to high-range unit is not positioned in the middle of the cabinet, but towards the inner side. The linear frequency response of the speaker is 80 Hz 20,000 Hz, which produces a total Q-rating of 0.7 in combination with the vertical beaming effect, and a total SPL of over 108 dB, corresponding to the THX® requirements. The CT MAIN 170 can equally well be used in small or large rooms. Mounted on a stand, the cabinet becomes an column speaker. The CT MAIN 170 produces precise bass reproduction and an exceptionally well balanced sound experience that is able to compete with live music. Even high volume settings will come over naturally and will not lead to distortion. The designers placed emphasis on high impedance, so that the speakers can be connected up to virtually any amplifier with no problems. We recommend using this system in conjunction with CT CENTER 130 or CT CENTER 170 centre speakers, the CT DIPOL 130effect speaker and the SUB T-36 subwoofer. The virtually perfect reproduction of the sound channels is so close to the original that the listener feels as if they are personally involved in the action. Makes films into an experience.
