Stationed to the left and right of the screen are two upright speakers. The CT8 LR features a spherical midrange/tweeter head that can be tilted towards the listener to retain a focused delivery, plus twin 10in bass units, as in the surround speaker.
For the Custom Theatre range we have taken our development of the Nautilus™-derived tubeloaded tweeter a stage further. Following the same principle as our adaptation of the midrange tube (see opposite), we’ve replaced the single, long tube with a whirl of tightly-packed, smaller channels contained in a shallow cup, each of which absorbs a portion of the unwanted sound energy from the back of the diaphragm. Even at frequencies well beyond human hearing, this tweeter sings like a bird.
