Quantum Center 816

Centre loudspeaker, 2-way bass reflex, double bass

The Quantum Center 816 is the Quantum 800 series´ centre loudspeaker and besides the refined sound of an absolutely top-of-the-range loudspeaker that possesses a lavish range of features and that has been built using the latest methods, the Quantum Center 816 comes with the perfect high-gloss varnish finish and the clear language of shape that is expected of a piece of furniture of the highest quality.

The Quantum Center 816 is available either in a black or white high-gloss varnish or a deep-brown rosewood finish. Two bass/mid-range loudspeakers with diameters of 170 mm in conjunction with a ceramic-aluminium cone are responsible for highly precise sound and clean transition to the high resolution "F-Max Signature" fabric dome tweeter. The double configuration in the bass and mid-range is responsible for producing excellent dynamism in home-cinema applications in spite of the particularly flat case.
