Centre speaker, 2-way bass reflex configuration

  • The Quantum 1000 S stereo system can now also be used in a home cinema with unparalleled precision and dynamics thanks to this high-end center
  • Speech intelligibility at an unprecedented level thanks to outstanding materials and the finest possible tuning
  • 30 mm tweeter with a particularly lightweight membrane made of semi-crystalline polymer (PTFE) for maximum efficiency
  • Two Klippel-optimized 170 mm "Controlled Flexing Cone" subwoofers with a ceramic-aluminium cone sandwich membrane for perfect three-dimensionality
  • Sturdy MDF enclosure with a low-resonance baffle and double-walled side panel structure with non-constant material thickness

2-way bass reflex center speaker

Whether you opt for the black finish for a home cinema setup or the high-gloss white finish for a modern living environment, you really can´t go wrong with the high-end Quantum Center 1000 S.
The centre speaker in the Quantum set is not only indispensable on account of its exquisite workmanship and chic visual appearance, but also because of its impeccable acoustic performance. Two 170 mm bass-midrange drivers and the high-end tweeter with its wide surround ensure a homogeneous sound pattern and a flat frequency response curve. Its extremely sturdy MDF construction and above-average degree of efficiency round off this high performance centre speaker.

Highlights


Woofer / midrange
  • Well-ventilated die-cast basket to prevent turbulence and compression effects
  • Controlled Flexing Cone: New cone geometry for controlled projection of wave fronts in the mid range, and with it the capability to reproduce a greater bandwidth 16 and 20 cm woofers with particularly flat cone profile and an adapted dust cap for enhanced all round dispersion and better synchronization with the mid-tweeter range
  • Distortion-optimised magnet system with double induction rings and stray field optimisation
  • High cone rigidity ensured by inverse ceramic/aluminium dust caps for the woofer and midrange
  • Sophisticated voice coil ventilation for a particularly high degree of resilience
Tweeter
  • Solid aluminium front panel with computer-optimised sound guide
  • Particularly lightweight cone construction consisting of semicrystalline polymer (PTFE) for maximum efficiency
  • Copper cap-optimised drive system for minimum distortion
  • Generous ventilation of the magnet system with low natural resonance
  • High-end dome tweeter with a particularly wide surround for optimised dispersion characteristics at frequencies above 20 kHz
Crossover
  • Built to 24dB LKR topology standards with transformer core coils and audiophile polypropylene capacitors
  • XO mechanically insulated from the cabinet
  • High-quality interior cabling by Oehlbach®
  • Large, connecting plate with gold-plated speaker terminals encapsulated in acrylic
  • Bi-wiring and bi-amping option, supplied with cable bridges for single-wire operation
Cabinet
