Features

SuperCenter Series: GoldenEar Technology's SuperCenter Series is high-performance center-channel speaker lineup appropriate for the highest quality of home theater systems. SuperCenters are designed to perfectly complement and match GoldenEar Technology's Triton floorstanding speakers, BRX bookshelf loudspeakers, and Aon bookshelf loudspeakers - both sonically and cosmetically. Their sophisticated industrial design is both attractive and functional, minimizing their apparent size as well as enhancing their acoustic performance.

  • Sonically, the SuperCenters offer lifelike, detailed, high-resolution, open, "boxless" sound quality with smooth low frequency extension and high power handling capacity for greater dynamic range and impact.
  • GoldenEar Technology SuperCenter speakers are efficient and can be driven to loud listening levels with moderate amplifier power. but are also able to handle the output of very powerful amplifiers.

High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) Tweeter): The SuperCenter X features GoldenEar Technology's High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) design tweeter. The HVFR tweeter propagates sound waves and moves the air by squeezing it with its accordion-like pleated diaphragm, rather than pushing it as conventional drivers do. The result is better impedance matching to the air in the room with greater control, smoother more extended response with lower distortion and dramatically improved dynamic range.

Dual 5.25" Bass/Midrange Drivers: The GoldenEar Technology SuperCenter X incorporates a D'Appolito Array of two newly developed long-throw 5.25" bass/midrange drivers surrounding the High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) tweeter. The 5.25" drivers incorporate spider-leg cast baskets for rigidity and minimal internal reflection, as well as GoldenEar Technology's unique multi-vaned phase plugs (MVPP) to minimize cone distortion.

7" x 10" Quadratic Planar Bass Radiator: The GoldenEar Technology SuperCenter X also utilizes a top-mounted pressure-coupled quadratic planar low frequency radiator that extends the bass response as well as provide the bass/midrange drivers with ideal acoustic loading and damping. The 7" x 10" quadratic planar low frequency radiator provides significant low frequency extension and exceptional dynamic range for the center channel speaker.

Note: Since the top-mounted passive radiator puts out a very low frequency pressure wave, it only requires 1"-2" of clearance above it so the speaker can be placed in cabinets and wall-units if desired.

Binding Post Terminals: The GoldenEar Technology SuperCenter X center channel loudspeaker is outfitted with a set of 5-way binding post terminals that will accept bare wire (up to 12AWG), pin-connectors, spade-lugs, and banana plugs (single or dual).

Mounting Options: If you are going to set your SuperCenter Speaker on a table or bookshelf that is below ear-level or on a shelf above the TV that is above ear-level, you will want to install the included adjustable leveling feet in order to angle the speaker up or down towards the listening area. Always position the speaker at the front of the mounting surface for best performance.

  • Dimensions without Feet: 20.0625" (w) x 5.875" (h) x 11.125" (d)
  • Dimensions with Feet: 20.0625" (w) x 6.3125" (h) x 11.125" (d)

Notes:

  • The adjustable leveling feet screw into the bottom of the speaker through the cloth grille that covers the speaker (the cloth grille should not be removed).
  • The SuperCenter X does not include any bracket, keyhole slot, or threaded insert to wall-mount the center channel speaker.

Flexible Placement: The GoldenEar Technology SuperCenter X speaker is designed to allow flexible placement while providing a very large window of sound and excellent dialog intelligibility throughout your listening room.

  • Typical placement of the SuperCenter X will be directly above or below your TV. Since the center channel speaker handles the majority of dialog it is important that it be located in close proximity to the center of the viewing screen. Position the speaker flush with the front of the TV or speaker shelf to minimize unwanted sound reflections.
  • For the most accurate and natural timbre, the speaker's high-frequency driver should be at, or aimed at, approximately ear level. Use the included optional leveling feet if you need to angle the SuperCenter so it points up or down at the listener.
  • Placing the speaker close to walls will emphasize bass and may reduce overall clarity. If possible, position the speaker 8" or more from the wall behind the speaker. This will ensure better bass performance and optimal midrange clarity.
  • If the center-channel speaker is not approximately the same distance away from the primary listening position as your front speakers, use your AV receiver's/processor's speaker distance menu to electronically adjust for differences in distance.
  • If installing the SuperCenter X in a cabinet space, please note that although the speaker has a passive radiatorslocated on top, it only requires a minimal clearance of 1"-2" above the center speaker.
