MODEL M is a flat speaker (18 cm deep(7″), for a height of 50 cm(1.64 ft)) specially designed for the « surround » channels of a home theater system. It must be fixed to the wall (fixing system supplied) or recessed. We recommend it for dedicated rooms from 25 to 100 m2(250 to 1000 ft2). It is available in a unique color (black and dark gray front) for easy integration into dark rooms …
The speaker is composed of a 21 cm (8″) diameter bass-midrange speaker and a domed tweeter surmounted by a headliner. Its vent is naturally on the front.
Given its role as an effects speaker, the MODEL M has been designed to be particularly dynamic. The driver uses a cellulose pulp cone (very light for its diameter), mounted on a suspension small folds to become very reactive. A sensitivity close to 95 dB is obtained. It is accompanied by a PEEK dome tweeter (a plastic stiffened by carbon particles), also very rigid, to ensure high frequencies to the end of the audible frequencies.
The tweeter used is the same as that of the speakers floor standing DHAVANI MK2 and STENTAURE, it is also the same as that of the center speaker STENTAURE C MK2. In other words, the product MODEL M is their perfect companion for a home theater installation.
Positioning and adjustment:
The MODEL M will thus be positioned, fixed on the wall, at 3/4 of the height of the ceiling (1.8 m (6 ft) height for a ceiling of 2.4 m(8ft)). The speaker should not be facing the listening area but perpendicular to the wall. To summarize, the sound of the speaker must « pass over » the listener, when he is sitting in his couch.
In the case of a 5.1 home cinema system: you can attach the speakers, either on the side walls (left and right) or on the back wall. In the latter case, move the speakers away from the main listening area. Avoid placing the surround channels too close to the corners of the room (a distance of at least 70 cm(2,3 ft) is recommended).
In the case of a 7.1 system, we recommend using 4 speakers: 2 on the back wall and 2 on the side walls.
Important: The MODEL M is designed to be configured in SMALL MODE on your AUDIO / VIDEO amplifier. In other words, we strongly recommend a low cut of the speaker at 80 Hz. It is with this setting that it will work and that its power handling will be ensured.
The terminal block accepts fork and banana plugs, but we recommend a direct connection with the stripped cable stuck by the screwed terminal block.
