The 8200e LR's redefine the high-end speaker category with an unbeatable combination of smooth, accurate sound, sophisticated style, and unmatched value in a top-of-the-line system. You can enhance the speakers' performance in any room with the onboard optimization switches that minimize the detrimental effects of speaker placement and room acoustics. Whether you are listening to Schubert or the Stones, or watching Schwarzenegger, with the 8200e LR's you'll appreciate the speaker's ability to capture the explosive dynamics of the latest Hollywood blockbuster or the subtle detail in a classic recording.
The 8200e LR features the following rear mounted acoustic optimization controls
- A 3-position High Frequency Energy switch (changes the tilt of the tweeters response, not simply how loudly the tweeter plays). This allows much improved matching of the speaker's response to different room environments. Whether you have an acoustically live (highly reflective) or dead (highly absorptive) room, you can correct for varying acoustics.
- A Location Selector switch shelves up both the upper midrange and the high frequency output to compensate for being located behind a perforated screen or theater curtains, providing unrestricted detail at the listening position.
- A Boundary Compensation control adjusts for placing the speakers in custom cabinets or directly adjacent to a TV, delivering open and natural sound. These ultra-high performance satellites can be combined with sand-fillable pedestals to create an impressive floor standing speaker. Or, the satellites can be used alone, installed in custom cabinetry behind an acoustically-transparent panel. The 8200e LR's can be used in any multi-channel configuration. For 7.1 systems, we recommend another set of LR's for the back channels with an additional 642e SB subwoofer.
The cabinet's side panels are finished in a luxurious Gloss Black painted finish. To complete the look, a beveled smoked glass top is also included.
