Magnetically shielded centr e channel loudspeaker system

Product Summary

The magnetically shielded CDM CNT centre channel loudspeaker completes the CDM NT range.

Like the rest of the speakers in the CDM NT family, the centre channel harnesses all the latest technological advancements such as Nautilus™ tweeter, Kevlar® and contoured cabinet edges.

Technical highlights

Nautilus™ Tweeter: B&W's Nautilus™ Tweeter technology ensures that the sound remains focused and time-sensitiveand that thestereo-imageis presented with unparalleled three dimensional accuracy.

Kevlar®: B&W developed and patented the method of using Kevlar® for loudspeaker cones to reduce unwanted standing waves. DuPont originally created Kevlar® for use in bulletproof vests.

Flowport™: Golf ball aerodynamics theory points the way towards lower distortion reflex ports. Dimples improve the way the air flows over the surface of any object. In the case of reflex ports, they offer a significant improvement over simply flaring the port ends in reducing air flow turbulence at each end of the port; so you get less chuffing noise and less compression at high sound levels.
