Sonace Release New Carbon Fibre Cone Woofers for Home-Theatre System

Sonance has introduced the new Cinema Select line of THX Select certified in-wall home theatre loudspeakers complete with carbon fibre cone woofers.

The line consists of two models, a main channel LCR speaker and a surround channel speaker, both designed to deliver accurate, cinema-quality sound in rooms up to 2000 cubic feet.

Featuring advanced carbon fibre cone woofers, innovative design elements like a tweeter back chamber, and Sonance’s integrated RotoLock fasteners for quick, reliable and secure in-wall mounting, the new Cinema Select speakers offer measurably superior audio performance, ease of installation, and attractive pricing.

Mitch Witten from Sonance said that the key advantage of the new carbon fibre woofer cones is their increased stiffness, which eliminates spurious resonance, a source of distortion. A die-cast aluminum woofer basket maintains a more precise alignment of voice coil and cone even under high power operation, which also prevents the occurrence of distortion. The new acoustic back chamber for the tweeter yields a smoother high frequency performance and helps disperse sound evenly over the defined sound field.

Each magnetically-shielded Cinema Select LCR speaker (each sold separately) comes equipped with a 6.5-inch (135mm) carbon fibre cone woofer with a rubber surround.
