THX Ultra 2 certified center speaker fills the largest domestic rooms with our best sound
When we set out to design the 8200e C, we decided to apply all of our experience to create a no-holds-barred product. By implementing our exclusive technology, we have developed a no-compromise speaker system, able to deliver its superb performance in a wide variety of acoustic settings.
Max Room Size
Taking center stage, the 8200e C delivers dialogue, music, and special effects with such accuracy you will hear every nuance no matter what the source. Employing the exact same driver set as the 8200e LR’s, sounds move seamlessly across the front channels. Incorporating the trademark Atlantic rotator base combined with compensation controls for any placement and room acoustics, the 8200e C provides the ultimate in flexibility and performance for today’s high-end installations.
The 8200e C features the following rear mounted acoustic optimization controls
- A 3-position High Frequency Energy switch (changes the tilt of the tweeters response, not simply how loudly the tweeter plays). This allows much improved matching of the speaker’s response to different room environments. Whether you have an acoustically live (highly reflective) or dead (highly absorptive) room, you can correct for varying acoustics.
- A Location Selector switch shelves up both the upper midrange and the high frequency output to compensate for being located behind a perforated screen or theater curtains, providing unrestricted detail at the listening position.
- A Boundary Compensation control adjusts for placing the speakers in custom cabinets or directly adjacent to a TV delivering open and natural sound.
Like the 8200e LR, the 8200e C’s side panels are finished in rich Gloss Black paint.
