The perfect center channel companion for the 1400 system, this speaker employs a closely-grouped M-T-M driver array for optimum coverage of the listening area. In addition, as with all of our center channel speakers, the 1400 C comes with a unique tilting base so the speaker is always precisely aimed at your ears. This aiming capability ensures high intelligibility of voices, dialogue, and on-screen effects.
- High Frequency Tweeter Level Switch - The 1400 C has a three-position switch to compensate for 'live' or 'dead' room acoustics so the sound is never too bright or too dull. The high frequencies will always be in perfect proportion.
- Boundary Compensation - Placing a center channel speaker directly on a large-screen TV or in a bookshelf unit can cause a buildup of lower midrange energy that makes voices and instruments sound unnaturally thick and heavy.
To compensate, we've developed a boundary circuit that counteracts this problem. When activated, the boundary compensation switch will return the lower midrange--particularly male voices--to its natural, uncolored state.
The 1400 C center channel shares the same design approach as our more expensive center channel speakers, but its smaller size and lower cost make it an excellent choice for smaller rooms.
