3-way Active Centre Channel
No home theatre is complete without a centre channel, but unfortunately the importance of clarity in this speaker often gets overlooked. In an ideal world it would have the same sound quality as the front surround speakers because it's the centre channel where the majority of the vocals are reproduced from. Ever watched a movie and wondered what did he just say?

We designed the CX3C to be the ideal complement to the CX3B or CX4F speakers in a home theatre setup. Exactly the same drivers and amplification have been used, ensuring perfect tonal matching.

When watching movies in a home environment, all viewers are seldom able to sit in the acoustic 'sweet spot'. The vertical midrange-tweeter arrangement in the CX3C minimises time alignment issues for listeners off axis so that voices sound real for all viewers and not just the lucky person with the central seat!
