These compact speakers go virtually anywhereon the wall, on a shelf or stand. Whether you use them for music or as front or surround speakers in a home theater system, youll be impressed by their power and accuracy. The black ash finish with high gloss black baffle adds a cool touch that makes them an even bigger value. 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, Energy ensures that every note is the way it was intended to beand the sound as natural as possible. Wide and Constant Dispersion: Sound at all frequencies radiating from the speaker should be in an even pattern, in all directions throughout the room. Low Distortion and Resonance: No speaker system is distortion- or resonance-free, but Energy has achieved a significantly lower distortion level, a clearly audible improvement. Using the same woofer with Ribbed Elliptical Surround as its larger siblings and a similar .75-inch hyperbolic aluminum dome tweeter, the CB-5 delivers exceptional imaging and a large soundstage, along with impressive bass. Identical drivers allow the CB-5 to blend acoustically with other speakers in its family, making it perfect for use in satellite, surround side and rear applications. Port plugs are included for wall mounting.
