McIntosh - XCS1.5K

The Center of an Unrivaled Home Theater Experience.

The XCS1.5K Center Channel Loudspeaker is an important piece of the puzzle to create a cinematic, immersive experience in a home theater system that uses our XRT2.1K or XRT1.1K Floor Standing Loudspeakers as the front left and front right speakers. The center channel speaker is a critical component in any home cinema system as a vast majority of dialog and other key sounds in a movie or television show emanate from the center speaker – thus making it essential that it produces a high quality, clear sound. The XCS1.5K has been meticulously engineered for this exact purpose.

It's also important that your center channel speaker works in perfect harmony with the front left and front right speakers so that sounds can seamlessly move from side-to-side across all three front speakers without any unwanted changes to the sound characteristics. For this reason, the XCS1.5K has been voiced to match both the XRT2.1K and XRT1.1K, ensuring proper timbre of vocals and instrumentals as the sonic image moves across the virtual stage in front of you.

The XCS1.5K is rated to handle 1,500 Watts of power and is a unique hybrid design of both a 3 and 4-way speaker. For low frequencies, it has four 8" long throw carbon fiber sandwich cone woofers housed in the vented bass cabinet. All four woofers will reproduce low frequencies but if needed two of them will extend to slightly higher frequencies until reaching the crossover point where the (14) 2.5" aluminum midranges take over. The midranges are located in the line array along with (25) 3/4" dome tweeters. The careful selection of the speaker drivers based on their performance attributes, the placement of the individual drivers, and the detailed crossover design result in a uniform and wide sound field. This means that even if you are not sitting directly centered on the speaker you will still be able to clearly hear every sound coming from the center channel.
