JBL is now shipping its all-new JBL Cinema Sound range of loudspeaker components. The new ranges components include the CST55 floorstanding tower loudspeaker, CSC55 center channel loudspeaker, and the CSS10 10-inch, 150-watt powered subwoofer.
The CST55 tower and CSC55 center channel loudspeakers both feature a 3.25-inch titanium-laminate tweeter that delivers frequency response to 30kHz, for pure, open and extended high-frequency reproduction. The tweeter operates in conjunction with JBL’s exclusive Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal (EOS) waveguide, originally developed for JBL’s LSR Series professional studio monitors, to deliver smooth, accurate tonal balance off-axis as well as on-axis, along with more precise imaging and localization of music, dialogue, and effects.
The CST55 and CSC55 incorporate dual 5-inch woofers that utilize JBL’s proprietary PolyPlas polymer-coated-cellulose-fiber cone material, which combines the sonic neutrality of paper with the added rigidity and damping of the PolyPlas treatment to attenuate cone resonances and provide a smooth frequency response with a detailed midrange and natural vocal and instrumental reproduction.
The CSS10 powered subwoofer features a built-in amplifier (300-watt peak/150-watt RMS) and a high-excursion 10-inch woofer for tight, authoritative low-frequency performance all the way down to 27Hz. The woofer operates in a down-firing enclosure incorporating JBL’s FreeFlow port architecture, which utilizes a computer-optimized port to eliminate audible port noise and maximize output. The CSS10 offers line-level and LFE connection options to optimize its performance in any home entertainment system and room.
All JBL Cinema Sound models, including the CSS10, are magnetically shielded and employ JBL’s room-friendly acoustical-design principles, which ensure they will provide sonically accurate performance in the widest variety of listening environments and placement positions.
All models feature rich metallic-silver enclosures and trim, with contrasting high-gloss-black front panels and removable black grilles.
