The CT8 LR is probably the most technologically advanced, custom installation home theatre speaker the world has ever seen or heard. At the heart of this slim, 3-way front channel speaker is technology borrowed directly from the flagship 800 Series; twin Rohacell® bass drivers, a woven Kevlar® FST™ midrange driver and a metal dome high frequency driver. Integration of the drivers is semi-active via the CT8 XO active crossover/equaliser.
The CT8 LR midrange and high-frequency drivers are held in a super-rigid spherical pod that incorporates Nautilus™ derived tube loading, cleverly curled-up for compactness. The pod orientation is even adjustable for perfect alignment with the listening area. The main enclosure housing the bass drivers is Matrix™ braced to provide a solid system foundation, and plays accurate, dynamic bass down to 23Hz, well into subwoofer territory.
