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.
This dipole speaker makes use of two W 100 S 4 Ohm and two G 25 ND 8 Ohm textile dome units. The idea of dipoles is to create a diffused sound field from the effect channels. For this reason the tweeters at the front and rear are cross-connected. The all-pass circuitry in the deep-bass department ensures that, at frequencies above 200 Hz, the woofers are also cross-connected, and below that level they work in synch. This prevents the bass completely cancelling itself out.
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.

We are proud to present the CT CENTER 80, specially designed for Dolby®-Surround applications. This is a highly compact system for the home video centre channel (240 x 105 x 200 mm; fitted with 2 x SC 8 8 Ohm, 1 x SC 5 8 Ohm ). This loudspeaker has well-balanced soundqualities.
Well designed 2-way speakers with excellent mid-bass speakers and equally good tweeters can work wonders in terms of their spatial qualities and localisation. One of the reasons for this is certainly that the a large, absolutely critical frequency range (up to around 4,000 Hz) is covered by a single loudspeaker driver. In other words, there is only one soundsource and no possibility of interference or loss from an intermediate crossover.
The TL-SUB subwoofer is a special system for reproducing lowest-range bass frequencies accurately at subsonic levels. There are software effects around that produce frequencies of 20 Hz and even less. You just have to think of the almost proverbial sound effects of the Tyrannosaurus Rex in Stephen Spielberg's Jurassic Park.
