Total Speaker Solutions: The
TSS-1200 5.1-channel speaker system consists of four identical SAT1200
satellite speakers, a matching CENTER1200 center speaker, and a 250-watt
powered subwoofer. If your home theater system is 6.1- or 7.1-channel, you can
expand the TSS-1200 system by purchasing additional SAT1200 satellite speakers (item #
108SAT12HP/C). Speaker wire and subwoofer cable are included.
Metal Matrix Diaphragm
(M.M.D.): All the speakers in the TSS-1200 system features
Infinity's proprietary Metal Matrix Diaphragm (M.M.D.) drivers. M.M.D. features
a stiff aluminum core, anodized on both sides for increased strength and
rigidity. M.M.D. transducers deliver crystal-clear, distortion-free sound from
dynamic digital sources, even at high listening levels.
Acoustical Waveguide: The
TSS-1200 satellites and center speaker utilize an acoustical waveguide tweeter
design to deliver a wider and more even high frequency response. This ensures
that no matter where in the room you sit, you won't miss any of the sound.
SAT1200 Satellites: The four
identical SAT1200 satellite speakers each have dual 3-1/2" M.M.D. cone midranges
and 3/4" M.M.D. dome tweeters. The acoustic suspension enclosures are made
of brushed extruded aluminum. The unique, all-metal construction provides extreme rigidity and
internal damping to virtually eliminate resonance, so you hear the music or
movie soundtrack just the way it was intended. All four satellite speakers come
supplied with a removable table-top stand to allow you to place the speakers on
an existing shelf. Recommended Amplifier Power
Range: 10-125 watts.
CENTER1200 Center Speaker: The
matching CENTER1200 center speaker has dual 3-1/2" M.M.D. cone midranges and
a 3/4" M.M.D. tweeter, housed in a brushed extruded aluminum, acoustic
suspension enclosure. The CENTER1200 rests on a unique angled pedestal designed
specifically for the center speaker. Recommended Amplifier
Power Range: 10-125 watts.
5-Way Binding Posts: The
satellites speakers use gold-plated, 5-way binding posts for a versatile, secure
connection and excellent signal transfer. The binding posts are located on the
bottom of the speaker. The center channel also uses gold-plated binding posts
that are located on the rear of the speaker but the terminals are too far apart
to be considered 5-way.
Mounting Options: The TSS-1200
satellites and center speaker can be placed directly on a shelf using the
supplied table-top stands, or mounted on a wall using the supplied fixed or
adjustable wall brackets. The adjustable wall brackets allow the speakers to
swivel left to right, up or down and diagonally when attached to the wall. The
satellites and center speaker have two 1/4"-diameter threaded inserts on the
back of the enclosure to accommodate the supplied wall brackets. The satellites
also have a 1/4-20 threaded insert on the bottom for use with the supplied table
top stand and most optional wall brackets. The satellites have two 0.3mm
threaded inserts on the bottom to attach to an optional floor-standing speaker
stand (TS-STAND1200, sold separately).
Note: The speakers
comes supplied with screws to mount the wall brackets or table top
stands to the speakers. The speakers do not come supplied with the
screws needed to mount the wall brackets to the wall. For proper
mounting, the wall brackets require up to four 1-1/2", #10 wood screws
(not supplied). The brackets should be fastened to a wall stud, or, if a
wall stud is unavailable, an appropriate screw anchor should be
TSS-1200 Powered Subwoofer: The
TSS-1200 powered subwoofer features a side-firing 12" M.M.D. cone driver in a
bass reflex enclosure with a down-firing port, driven by a 250-watt RMS amplifier. Other features of the
- Auto Stand-By: When the
power switch is in the "on" position, the subwoofer will power on
instantly when a signal is detected. The subwoofer will automatically enter
the Stand-By mode after approximately 10 minutes when no signal is detected.
A front-mounted LED indicates the subwoofer mode (green=On, red=Stand-By)
- LFE/Normal Switch: If you
have a Dolby Digital/DTS receiver/processor with a low-frequency-effects (LFE)
or subwoofer output, the switch should be placed in the "LFE"
position. If your receiver/processor does not have a Dolby Digital/DTS
decoder, but has a subwoofer output, the switch should be in the
- Crossover Adjustment: The
TSS-1200 subwoofer has a low-pass crossover that is continuously variable from 50-150 Hz
(24dB/octave). The built-in crossover is bypassed when the LFE/Normal
switch is in the "LFE" position.
- Phase Control: You can
switch the phase control between "0" and "180",
whichever setting provides maximum bass output at the listening position.
- Level Control: You can set
the overall volume of the subwoofer to achieve the best blend with the rest
of the system.
- Line Level Inputs: The
subwoofer has left and right RCA line level inputs. If your receiver/preamp
has a single subwoofer output, you can use either the left or right channel
input--no "Y" adapter is needed.
Colors: The TSS-1200 speaker
system is available in a Platinum or Charcoal finish.
