Surround Design: A Image S5 speaker is two 2-way speakers
built into one triangular shaped cabinet; each having its own woofer, tweeter,
and crossover. The drivers are mounted on baffles facing in different
directions, approximately 120° apart. The two speaker sections are wired in
phase, as a bipole speaker to flood the area with surround sound.
Cone Design: The woofer cones are clay/ceramic filled
polypropylene to optimize the combination of stiffness, internal damping, and
low mass. The magnetically neutral polycarbonate baskets contribute additional
stiffness, and the bullet-shaped phase-plugs enhance linearity at higher
Tweeter: The 1" titanium dome, Ferrofluid cooled tweeters
use a neodymium magnet structure to help extend the frequency response at both
ends for effortless, airy top octaves and smooth, uncolored response.
Crossover Network: The crossovers are 2-way acoustical
fourth order Linkwitz-Riley type with a 24 dB/octave slope. The tweeters and
woofers are crossed over at 1,800 Hz.
Binding Posts: The 5-way binding post input terminals are located on
the lower rear of the speaker cabinet. The binding posts will accept spade
connectors, single or dual banana plugs, pin connectors, and bare wire up to 8
Mounting: The Image S5 can be wall mounted using the
included brackets. The bracket adds approximately 3/16" to the depth of the
