MODEL S is a flat speaker (15 cm deep(6″)) 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 15 to 30 m2(160 to 320 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 16.5 cm diameter bass-medium speaker and a titanium dome tweeter. Its vent is naturally on the front.
Given its role as a speaker effects, MODEL S was designed to be particularly dynamic. The HP uses a membrane of about 3 grams (particularly light for this diameter of speaker), mounted on a suspension small folds to become very reactive. A yield close to 94 dB is obtained. It is accompanied by a metal dome tweeter (titanium), also very rigid, to ensure high frequencies to the end of the audible frequencies.
Positioning and adjustment:
The MODEL S will therefore be positioned, wall-mounted, at 3/4 of the height of the ceiling (1.8 m (6 ft) high 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 S 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.
