Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Two-Way Speaker Design: Along with a pair of 4.5" polypropylene cone
woofers, the MCenter features a 2.5" Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) driver for
consistent sound across a wide audio range.
- 2.5" Balanced Mode Radiator Driver: The MCenter center-channel
loudspeaker features Balanced Mode Radiator (BMR) driver technology,
designed to improve dialog and surround effects across a broad listening
range. The 2.5"BMR driver uses a flat panel diaphragm that operates in two
modes simultaneously. To reproduce lower frequencies, the diaphragm moves in
and out like a piston--similar to how a traditional driver works. To
reproduce higher frequencies, the diaphragm bends. These two modes of
operation significantly extend the usable range of the driver, resulting in
enhanced high frequency dispersion for more consistent surround sound.
- Dual 4.5" Polypropylene Cone Woofers: The speaker also contains
two 4.5-inch polypropylene cone woofers for dynamic bass
High Quality Crossover Networks: Very high quality crossover
networks featuring low loss film capacitors and low distortion laminated silicon
steel core inductors are utilized for greater clarity and minimal coloration. A
low crossover point delivers clear sound reproduction in midrange frequencies
where the human ear is most sensitive.
Lo-Q Cabinet Construction Cabinet: The MCenter has a cabinet made of
Lo-Q, a material consisting of two pieces of medium-density fiberboard joined
together with a thick layer of damping adhesive in the middle. This material
significantly reduces cabinet vibrations to virtually eliminate unwanted
resonances allowing the MCenter to create a larger, more vivid soundstage.
Gloss Finish w/ Leatherette Wrap: The MCenter's gloss black
finish and curved side panels with faux leather wrap can complement almost any
Front-Firing Ports: The center channel speaker's dual ports have been put on the front to limit proximity
effect when placed in cabinets or near walls.
Binding Post Speaker Terminals: The Boston Acoustics MCenter
loudspeaker is fitted with a set of binding post speaker terminals that will
accept bare wire (up to 10AWG), banana plugs (single only), spade-connectors,
Mounting Options: The MCenter should be centered directly
below or above your television. The center-channel can be placed on a stand,
table-top, or virtually any flat surface. Self-adhesive rubber feet are included
to minimize the vibration transferred from the speaker to the stand, shelf, or
cabinet. This will also help to protect the finish of the loudspeaker and the
mounting location. The rubber feet add 0.25" to the height of the speaker.
