About the GoldenEar SuperSat 3C
A low-profile center channel speaker
A low-profile center channel speaker
The GoldenEar SuperSat 3C offers high performance in a low-profile speaker that can fit where many other center channels can't. It's less than 3 inches deep and weighs just five lbs., and it's designed with multiple mounting options in mind. And it sounds great — its two mid-bass drivers and ribbon tweeter work together to deliver clear dialogue and solid sound effects that enhance your TV and movie viewing experience.
A HVFR™ (High Velocity Folded Ribbon) tweeter squeezes the air between the folds of a high-density diaphragm, rather than pushing air like a piston. That lets it maintain a wide dispersion pattern and smooth response all the way up to 35,000 Hz. The tweeter is flanked by a pair of 4-1/2" mid/bass woofers with powerful magnet that keep their movement accurate and linear. Each woofer's MVPP (multi-vaned phase plug) controls energy in the center of the cone and keeps distortion low. It all adds up to wide dispersion, accurate imaging, and clear, musical accuracy.
Space-saving home theater
Flexible placement options
If you're placing the SuperSat 3C on a piece of furniture in front of your TV, you can use the built-in adjustable foot to angle the speaker toward your listening position. There's a keyhole slot on the back for mounting it flat against a wall, plus a threaded insert that works with the optional SuperSwivel wall mount. Finally, if you don't have wall space or furniture near your TV, it's a perfect fit for GoldenEar's SuperStand (not included).

SuperSat Series: The GoldenEar SuperSat Series is an extensive range of high-performance satellite loudspeakers which perfectly fulfill a wide variety of needs and applications. The SuperSat Series can be utilized to create a high-performance 2ch stereo music setup or a multichannel home theater. They can be used as front, center, or rear speaker channels. The SuperSat Series consists of three satellite loudspeakers (SuperSat 3 / SuperSat 50 / SuperSat 60) and three center channel speakers (SuperSat 3C / SuperSat 50C / SuperSat 60C) - all sold separately. The GoldenEar Technology SuperSat speakers are extremely efficient and can be driven to loud listening levels with moderate amplifier power, but also able to handle the output of very powerful amplifiers.
High-Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) Tweeter): The SuperSat 3C satellite center speaker 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 4.5" High-Definition Bass/Midrange Drivers: The SuperSat 3C speaker houses two 4.5" cast spider-leg basket upper bass/midrange drivers, which incorporate GoldenEar Technology's proprietary Multi-Vaned Phase Plug design (MVPP) as well as their proprietary computer optimized cone topology, arranged in a D'Appolito array surrounding the HVFR tweeter.
Acoustic Suspension Cabinet: The acoustic suspension (sealed) cabinet is constructed from a rigid, non-resonant marble-powder infused polymer and is finished in a piano-gloss black. The non-resonant, sealed enclosure design aids in the speaker's accurate, detailed sound. A magnetic grille easily attaches to the front to cover and protect the drivers.
Binding Post Terminals: The GoldenEar Technology SuperSat 3C satellite center speaker 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: The SuperSat 3C center speaker can be mounted horizontally on a tabletop or on the wall. It includes an adjustable foot for ideal positioning and angling of the center speaker on a shelf below or above your TV. It also incorporates a rear 1/4"-20 threaded insert, as well as keyhole slots for wall mounting options. The keyhole mounts allow flat-on-the-wall mounting and the 1/4"-20 threaded insert can be used with the GoldenEar Technology SuperSwivel bracket (sold separately).
- Speaker Only Dimensions: 12.625 (w) x 4.8125" (h) x 2.875" (d)
- Speaker with Adjustable Foot Dimensions: 12.625" (w) x 4.625"-4.75" (h) x 3.625" (d)
- Speaker With Wall Bracket Dimensions (Optional): 12.625" (w) x 4.8125" (h) x 5.625" (d)
Flexible Placement: The GoldenEar Technology SuperSat speaker is designed to allow flexible placement while providing a very large window of sound throughout your listening room. Place the center speaker above or below your TV, whichever position is closer to ear level. If shelf mounting, for best fidelity position the speaker as close to the edge of the shelf as possible to avoid sound reflecting off the shelf.
Optional Powered Subwoofer: The SuperSat 3C satellite center speaker has a frequency response of 80Hz to 35kHz, so adding a powered subwoofer (sold separately - see Accessories Tab) is highly recommended. In your AV receiver or processor's Speaker Setup Menu, all channels using SuperSat speakers should be set to "Small". The recommended crossover setting for the SuperSat 3C is 120Hz.
