High Back EMF
All XT-Series Cinema Ribbons share a specialized ribbon tweeter. At only 6 inches tall it boasts nearly 10 feet of ribbon material. Notice the faint lines in this picture? Each of those is a pass of the ribbon through the neodymium magnet's field. The numerous windings allow Cinema Ribbons to project an enormous soundstage while fitting in the palm of your hand. The golden sheen you see on the ribbon is from its coating of Kapton - a lightweight material that allows it to play at very high volume without overheating.
A unique property of the Cinema Ribbon is its narrow vertical dispersion. This greatly reduces unwanted ceiling and floor bounces, improving imaging and creating a more believable soundstage.
Cinema Ribbon Duo® In-Wall Center - CRW-2C
When the Cinema Ribbon Duos® were launched a couple of years ago, they showed the world just how much audiophile-quality sound could be created from a remarkably small form factor. That remarkable product – standing just 8” tall – delivered unprecedented levels of sonic performance for a speaker in their size and class. As a result, they’ve won the accolades of the most important critics and Home Theater devotees, like you.
The CRW-2C features many of the same benefits as the classic Cinema Ribbon Duos®, but are specifically designed for built-in Home Theater applications where space limitations are a principal concern. Thanks to its removable "acoustic lens", the CRW-2C is perfectly suited for center channel and LCR applications. This louvered lens keeps the ribbon's dispersion accurate whether you choose to mount them vertically or horizontally. A diminutive 6" tall Cinema Ribbon tweeter boasts unrivalled frequency response – up to 40kHz. Two of Sunfire’s legendary High Back-emf drivers provide tremendous output, while a sealed cabinet keeps things under control. And gold-plated binding posts ensure that every connection, like the audio you hear, is as pure as possible.
The Cinema Ribbon Duo® In-Walls. Half the size, twice the sound. One of a kind.
