The center channel loudspeaker is one of the most critical components in a high-performance home theater system. Because most important dialog is directed to the center channel, it is especially important that your center channel speaker be able to accurately reproduce both instruments and voice clearly and intelligibly, but without the slightest hint of distortion or harshness.
Airmotiv speakers sound truly superb with all types of music – from classical orchestras to intimate jazz ensembles, to individual vocalists, heavy metal, and electronica. When paired with any high-quality power amplifier, all of the Airmotiv speakers will deliver clean, uncolored, properly balanced sound with very low distortion and an outstanding rendition of even the finest details. All of the speakers in the Airmotiv series were carefully timbre matched to work well together and to deliver a cohesive audio image in any stereo or surround sound installation.
Airmotiv C2 uses the same 32 mm Airmotiv tweeter as the other speakers in our Airmotiv line, which delivers superb high frequency clarity and imaging, and ensures that the Airmotiv C2 is perfectly timbre matched to the other speakers in our Airmotiv series.
The dedicated 3” midrange drivers we use in the Airmotiv C2 features woven glass-fiber cones, and solid aluminum phase plugs, for exceptionally accurate midrange. Their powerful double magnet assemblies and long-throw design allow them to deliver clear, intelligible dialog – even at high listening levels.
The midrange drivers are located directly below the tweeter, which, combined with the Airmotiv C2’s advanced crossover, allows the C2 to avoid the irregularities in horizontal dispersion common to less advanced designs, and project balanced energy across a wide listening area.
The dual 6-1/2” woofers feature cones made from a super-strong woven synthetic fiber with excellent internal damping, and oversized double magnet structures, for clean, powerful bass that blends perfectly with the midrange.
Airmotiv™ high-frequency transducer - delivers flat frequency response, low distortion, virtually nonexistent signal compression, smooth off-axis response, superb transparency, and uncanny imaging.
Advanced woven fiber midrange transducers - deliver smooth frequency response, and lifelike, detailed midrange with very low coloration.
Advanced woven fiber low-frequency transducers - with high-temperature voice coils and vented pole pieces - deliver clean, crisp bass at all listening levels.
Minimum Acoustic Signature™ cabinet - the angled exterior contours on the Airmotiv speakers serve to minimize diffraction effects and room interactions. The acoustically inert 25mm milled HDF front panels, 15mm side and rear panels, and extensive bracing, serve to further reduce vibrations, and contribute to the Airmotiv speaker’s clean precise imaging.
Tough yet attractive exterior - several coats of satin-finish lacquer give the front bezel of the Airmotiv speakers an elegant understated appearance, while a tough yet attractive vinyl covering protects the sides and rear from damage and fingerprints.
Magnetic grille - provides a convenient way to keep your technology under wraps, and are easily removed for cleaning - or for showing your Airmotiv speakers off to your audiophile friends.
Use them with or without the removable grilles - the front bezel of the Airmotiv speaker is finished with an attractive satin finish black lacquer, so they look great with the grilles on or off; choose the look that fits your system and your room decor.
Precision crossovers - carefully designed and optimized to work perfectly with the drivers in each Airmotiv speaker model - feature audiophile quality film capacitors, air core inductors, and precision resistors in critical locations.
Bi-amp terminals - The Airmotiv C2 allows you to access the woofer and midrange/tweeter sections of the speaker separately for bi-amping or bi-wiring.
Full five year warranty - ensures that you’ll be able to enjoy your Airmotiv C2 speakers for years to come.
