Tempus Center 22

2-way center speaker

  • The ideal home cinema extension for the Tempus system
  • Finely tuned center speaker for outstanding speech intelligibility
  • 25 mm fmax dome tweeter with dispersion-optimized sound guide and powerful neodymium drive for the best resolution
  • Two Klippel-optimized 130 mm FE Dynamics chassis: High-quality woofers for high resilience and precision
  • Sturdy, particularly low-resonance enclosure structure made of E1 MDF timber boards

The center speaker in the Tempus family is designed as a 2-way system and features two 130 mm bass-midrange drivers from the FE Dynamics series. A high load capacity, which is enabled thanks to the ventilated voice coil unit and a sturdy metal basket with generous air vents, is combined with the outstanding precision and speed provided by the coated paper cones. As is the case for other components in the Tempus series, the newly developed 25 mm fmax tweeter also ensures an optimum resolution in the treble range here with its powerful neodymium drive. The Airflex ports in the low-resonance MDF housing eliminate the flow noise generated by the bass reflex speaker.
