Our Product Research Team
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.
Metal Matrix Diaphragm
Derived from the C.M.M.D. material used in Infinity's flagship Cascade series, M.M.D. features a stiff aluminum core, anodized on both sides for increased
strength and rigidity. M.M.D. transducers conduct sound faster than paper,
polypropylene, and Kevlar, pushing unwanted resonances beyond the operating
range of the transducer. M.M.D. drivers deliver crystal-clear, distortion-free
sound from dynamic digital sources, even at high listening levels.
Dual 5-1/4" Woofers: The dual 5-1/4" M.M.D. cone woofers offer extremely accurate midrange response for cleaner, more
realistic sound. For a smoother
response and improved durability, the woofers use rubber surrounds.
3/4" Tweeter: The speaker has a
3/4" M.M.D. dome tweeter that offers superior stiffness and damping
compared to traditional metal domes.
Acoustical Waveguide: The P253's tweeter
utilizes an acoustical waveguide to deliver, more even high frequency response,
no matter what part of the room you're in.
Precision Crossover: Network: The speaker
features a 2-way crossover system with crossover frequency at 2500Hz. The crossover has a 24dB/octave slope.
Wood Grain Vinyl Cabinet: The Infinity P253 features a black
wood grain vinyl cabinet that matches almost any decor.
Bass Reflex Design: The Infinity Primus tower
loudspeaker utilizes a bass reflex enclosure with a front-firing port for
greater efficiency and bigger bass response.
Low Resonance Enclosure: The P253 employs a extremely low
resonance enclosure, so you hear the music exactly as it was recorded.
Grille: The speaker comes with a removable black cloth
grille with a rigid plastic frame.
Posts: The 5-way
binding posts will accept bare wire, pin connectors, spade connectors, banana
plugs, and dual banana plugs.
Color-Coded: The speaker's binding posts are color-coded
(red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.
Outboard/Inboard Feet: The
speaker comes assembled with attractive silver outboard feet. If desired, you
can replace them with the supplied, less visible, black inboard feet. The feet
can be changed with the use of a handheld Phillips-head screwdriver. The overall
width is approximately 1" less, and the overall height is approximately 1/4"
less when the black, inboard feet are used, compared to the outboard feet.
