This version of the COUPLET has been specifically designed for use as a centre speaker in multichannel systems. The drivers and crossover fitted are the same as in the original COUPLET. However, instead of the bass reflex arrangement, a smaller, enclosed housing has been selected. This saves space.
Subwoofer satellite arrangements are becoming ever more popular amongst those who simply do not have room to place large-scale speakers or who are unwilling to have large items of furniture around, but who do not wish to go without the enjoyment of powerful, low-range bass. Since low-frequency sounds below 100-150 Hz cannot be located by the human ear, only one subwoofer cabinet is required.
The CT CENTER 130 has been specially developed with a particular driver arrangement in mind to provide perfect omnidirectional sounddispersion and to ensure the sound source is close to the image. Spoken dialogues can thus be directly located and correctly positioned even 30° from the centre line without distortion.
This compact centre speaker will find a suitable space in the shelving just above or below the TV set. It is fitted with two W 100 SC 4 Ohm 's connected in series, which produces a total impedance of 8 ohms. As a result, the CT CENTER 100 can be used in conjunction with receivers that have problem communicating with low-impedance speakers.
For use as a small satellite, the CT MAIN 100 is equipped with a pair of W 100 S 4 Ohm and the G 25 ND 8 Ohm textile dome unit. The two woofers are connected in series, which produces a total impedance of 8 ohms. As a result, the CT MAIN 100 can be used in conjunction with receivers that have problem communicating with low-impedance speakers.
The CT CENTER 80 is a compact, enclosed 2-way system with well-balanced sound quality and complete magnetic shielding, as required for example if positioned close to a TV or PC. Inside the cabinet, we use magnetically shielded speakers, types SC 8 8 Ohm (8 cm full-range) and SC 5 8 Ohm (10 mm tweeter) and the complete speaker then meets the shielding requirements of the THX® regulations (3-Gaussian curve).
The VIB MIKRO AL is a small format shelf-mounted speaker with a passive radiator. In this 2-way combination, we have used a mid-bass AL 130 8 Ohm speaker with a G 25 FFL 8 Ohm tweeter. The speaker is characterised by well-balanced, clear sound output, good spatial separation and, for a shelf-mounted speaker, unbelievably low frequencyextremes.
The SUB T-36 subwoofer was developed to complement home video and THX® systems with an active subwoofer output and can, if required, be equipped with an active subwoofer module. The driver used is the TIW 360 8 Ohm, to which a compensating magnet can be added to shield off unwanted magnetism. The 12" speaker used achieves low-range frequency extremes of 35 Hz in this relatively small 63-litre cabinet.
