Music and movie lovers will find a lot to like in Infinity's Reference R253. This slender tower speaker uses Infinity's most advanced drivers to deliver rich, powerful, room-filling sound. Its sleek, contemporary cabinet houses dual 5-1/4" woofers for taut, well-defined bass, a 5-1/4" flat-piston midrange for superior clarity, plus a 1" dome tweeter for crisp, extended highs. The Reference R253's dynamic, full-range sound and small footprint make it great choice for both music and home theater systems in a medium-sized room.
High-tech CMMD™ drivers for exhilarating performance
Infinity Reference speakers owe their open, natural sound to Infinity's patented Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm driver material. CMMD combines layers of ceramic with a stiff metal core for crystal-clear sonic performance. It's strong and durable, yet incredibly lightweight and responsive to the audio signal, providing the accuracy needed to hear your music just the way it was recorded.
The R253's 1" CMMD dome tweeter delivers crisp, sparkling treble. Its Advanced Waveguide design provides better high-frequency dispersion for smooth, seamless sound across a wide listening area. You'll enjoy outstanding clarity and definition, even when listening in a less than an optimal location.
A 5-1/4" flat-piston CMMD midrange supplies the speaker's critical mid- and high-frequency sounds. Its unique flat cone design reduces sound diffraction to improve vocal and dialogue intelligibility. A dedicated sub-enclosure around the driver eliminates interaction with the woofers, further enhancing midrange clarity.
The speaker's tight, responsive bass comes courtesy of two Infinity 5-1/4" CMMD high-output woofers in a tuned-port enclosure. Infinity carefully computer-optimized the crossover network, as well as each driver's position within the cabinet to ensure the most precise, natural, and stable imaging and soundstaging possible.
Build a complete Reference system
The Infinity Reference R253s will fill just about any room with powerful, well-defined sound. Use a pair to create a high-quality stereo system, or use them with Infinity's RC252 center channel speaker and RS152 surround channel speakers to create a stunning Reference home theater system. And don't forget to add the perfectly matched Reference SUB R10 powered subwoofer to get deep, accurate bass in the mix.
