About the Infinity Cascade
Model Three V
Infinity's Model Three V, the top-of-the-line bookshelf speaker in their acclaimed Cascade Series, features an elegant, slimline design and stellar sound quality. Like all Cascade speakers, the Model Three V uses rectangular, flat-panel woofers that allow the speaker to maintain a compact size without compromising performance. Plus, the tweeter and dual woofers are made of Infinity's premium C.M.M.D. material, which delivers clear, vibrant audio with virtually no distortion. It's a great choice for high-impact home theater as well as rich, dynamic stereo and multichannel music.
The Model Three V allows for a variety of placement options, making it a great match for today's popular flat-panel TVs. It comes with a bracket, so you can mount the speaker directly on your wall. Or you can use the Model Three V with the included table stand for steady placement on a shelf or tabletop.
Pick up a pair for stereo sound, or make the Model Three V part of a complete Cascade home theater speaker system. It's voice-matched to all Infinity Cascade floor-standing, bookshelf, and center channel speakers.

MRS Drivers: The Infinity Cascade series of home loudspeakers features Maximum Radiating Surface (MRS) flat-panel transducers. MRS flat-panel transducers can be loaded into unobtrusive enclosures that are nearly as thin as they are narrow. In addition, the MRS diaphragm functions much like a flat piston to achieve a flat broadband frequency response and uniform on- and off-axis dispersion. Other attributes of MRS drivers include:
- Dual Elliptical Voice Coils: In order to uniformly drive the flat-panel diaphragms, each transducer is equipped with two elliptical voice coils. The dual voice coils have more than six times the voice coil contact of a typical cone speaker, and move the diaphragm evenly top-to-bottom and side-to-side for crystal-clear resonance-free operation throughout the driver's dynamic range.
- Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm (C.M.M.D.): The MRS drivers are made of Infinity's patented C.M.M.D., a rigid, lightweight material. By reinforcing the C.M.M.D. panels with strategic ribs and gussets, the Infinity engineers were able to perfectly balance electro-acoustic efficiency and reliability.
- Rubber Surrounds: The MRS flat-panel transducers has a rubber surround for a smoother response and improved durability.
Mid-bass Drivers: The Model Three V features dual 7-3/4" x 3-3/8" MRS flat-panel transducers. The mid-bass drivers are video shielded, so you can place the speaker near a CRT-type TV without causing picture distortion.
Tweeter: The speaker has a 1" C.M.M.D. dome tweeter, which offers superior stiffness and damping compared to traditional metal domes.
Constant Acoustic Impedance (CAI) Waveguide: The tweeter is mounted in Infinity's proprietary Constant Acoustic Impedance (CAI) waveguide. This elliptical-shaped waveguide gives the speaker a much wider side-to-side dispersion, while at the same time limiting the sound dispersion to the top and bottom of the listening area. Note: Because of the directionality of the CAI waveguide, this speaker is designed to be mounted vertically.
Dual 5-Way Binding Posts: The speaker has two gold-plated 5-way binding posts, allowing you to bi-wire or bi-amp the speaker. Bi-wiring (separately wiring the high frequency and low frequency terminals from the same amplifier output) and bi-amping (separately wiring the high frequency and low frequency terminals from separate amplifier channels) can provide several sonic advantages and considerably more flexibility in power amplifier selection. You should use the gold-plated jumpers to tie the terminals together when connecting the speaker with a single speaker wire. Each binding post allows you to connect the speaker wire using pin-connectors, spade connectors, banana plugs, dual banana plugs, or bare wire.
Enclosure: The drivers are mounted into an extruded aluminum enclosure with a curved MDF front panel with a premium glossy-silver finish. The enclosure is internally braced to eliminate performance-robbing resonances.
Grille: The Cascade speakers use a unique frameless cloth grille. The grille is attached to the front of the speaker baffle by 2 magnets. When attached to the speaker, the grille adds approximately 1/2" to the overall depth of the speaker.
Wall Mounting: The Model Three V can be wall-mounted if desired. Two mounting cleats can be attached to the rear of the speaker using the provided screws. The cleats fit onto the 11-1/2"-tall wall bracket. When mounted, the back of the speaker is approximately 1" from the wall. Note: Hardware for mounting the bracket to the wall is not supplied.
Stand Mounting: The speaker can be mounted onto the supplied 19"-high speaker stand using one of the two supplied mounting cleats. The stand places the tweeter approximately 17" from the bottom of the base. This height works well when the speakers are placed beside the TV on the same platform. For optimum performance, the tweeter should be placed at ear level in your listening area. Note: Dimensions when speaker mounted on the stand: W=7.722", H=36.625", D=8.488", Weight=26 pounds.
