KC 550
Center speaker

The KC 550

This Centre speaker is very small and compact, despite its construction as a sophisticated three-way system. Just 12 cm in height and depth, it looks very good with any flat-screen television. Its task in a surround system is to provide superlative reproduction of the mid-range, which is particularly important for comprehensibility of speech and natural sound. At the same time it improves the positional accuracy and spatial character of the sound; these characteristics also make an impressive contribution in stereo mode.

Technology

Thanks to its aluminium cabinet, the KC 550 boasts a relatively large effective volume in which the two 8 cm bass units generate a very clean, dynamic sound image, even at high levels.
In combination with the newly developed co-axial mid-range / high-frequency unit, this produces a very open, clear sound image. In contrast with conventional designs, the adoption of a co-axial drive unit for the mid- / high-frequency range endows this centre speaker with a superb dispersion angle, which means that the sound image remains homogeneous even to listeners located in non-central positions.
