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.
Using the Omniguide, the NanoCenter radiates sound in a 360° pattern. This
pattern creates a deeper, more spacious soundstage and a bigger sweet spot in
your listening area than a typical direct radiating speaker. When listening to
acoustic instruments live, we hear more sound reflected than directly. The Omniguide closely approximates this reflected to direct ratio, giving the
NanoCenter a large, realistic soundstage.
Drivers: The center speaker house a 3"
polypropylene cone midrange with butyl rubber surround and a 2/3" pure titanium hybrid (PTH) dome tweeter mounted on the Omniguide.
Speaker Matching: If you
wish to use the NanoCenter speaker for a surround system, you can
purchase additional voice-matching satellites (653NANOPB) to fill out your speaker requirements.
Enclosure: The center speaker has an acoustic
suspension, extruded aluminum enclosure in a beautiful high gloss black finish.
Speaker Terminals: The center speaker
features high-quality spring post
speaker terminals for a secure and convenient connection. You will need to
remove a plug that's inserted in the center of the binding post if you wish to
use single banana plugs, the terminals are too far apart for dual banana plugs.
Spade connectors, pin connectors, or bare wire up to 10 gauge can also be used.
Mounting: The center speaker comes with a
metal horizontal mounting bracket so you can mount your center channel to the
wall. The bracket is mounted with two screws to the wall and can position the speaker
right side up or upside down. The center speaker slips into place overtop the
bracket once the bracket is mounted to the wall. The bracket mounts the speaker
flush to the wall or two 1/4" spacers are provided to space the speaker
approximately a 1/4" from the wall. If you mount the speaker more than six feet
off the floor, Mirage recommends turning the speaker upside down. If you
place the speaker on a table or shelf, put it as close to the front edge as
Video Shielded: The
