Two-way Speaker: The Energy Connoisseur-series CB-5 is a
pair of bookshelf speakers with a 4.5" poly cone woofer with a Ribbed Elliptical
Surround, and a 3/4" hyperbolic aluminum dome tweeter.
Energy Sound Principles: All Energy brand loudspeakers are
developed with three sound principles in mind:
- Flat On-Axis Frequency Response With Wide Bandwidth: Speakers
should reproduce the entire audio range in a uniform
manner. By ensuring that no one frequency dominates any other, the Energy ensures that every note is the way it was intended to
be, and the sound is as natural as possible.
- Wide and Constant Dispersion: The speaker should provide an even pattern sound at all its frequencies in all
directions throughout the room.
- Low Distortion Resonance: No speaker system is distortion- or
resonance-free, but Energy speakers have achieved a
significantly lower distortion level, a clearly audible improvement.
Convergent Source Module: The Convergent Source Module (CSM)
technology is the heart of the CB-5 speaker. The tweeter and woofer are
placed in close proximity and act as a single source to provide wide dispersion,
low distortion, and amazing performance.
Bass Reflex Enclosure: The Energy Connoisseur-series CB-5 has a
rear-vented bass reflex enclosure, with a high gloss black baffle and a vinyl
black ash cabinet.
Speaker Terminals: The CB-5 is equipped with gold-plated
5-way binding post
terminals for connecting the speaker wire. The terminals will accept bare wire,
spade lugs, pin connectors, and single or dual banana plugs.
Amplifier Requirements: The Energy Connoisseur-series CB-5 is
designed to operate on a wide range of A/V receivers or amplifiers with a power
rating of 20 to 100 watts continuous per channel. The recommended
bass management setting for the speaker is "small."
Speaker Placement: A set of 4 self-adhesive rubber feet are
included for each speaker, allowing you to place the speaker on a shelf or tabletop. A single
1/4"-20 threaded insert is provided for third party wall mount brackets or
