The Xi series main/satellite loudspeakers are the perfect blend between good looks and great performance when it comes to the world of home cinema systems. The Xi series brings a fresh breath in what home systems' design means, following the trends for mixing in the classic and the retro looks: while sporting sparkling colors and smooth, timeless shapes that effortlessly integrate in most home decors.
The Xi loudspeakers are truly elegant units no matter whether speaking about the on-wall, floorstanding or the center-channel versions. The low-diffraction front grille sports a rounded shape that looks simply astonishing in deep blue, red or gray: the metallic silver stands and other parts of these speakers add further noblesse to the appearance of these speakers and allow them to fit virtually anywhere, even if speaking about flanking your audio equipment rack or flatscreen, on-wall TV, or scattered across the room for an enveloping surround sound.
The XI satellites all sport extruded aluminum cabinets with a rounded shape that prevents standing waves from negatively influencing the sonic reproduction; at the same time, these enclosures are almost perfectly acoustically-inert for less coloration of the sound. These speakers can blast as much as 100W continuous power with astonishing 700W peak power and work in 8 Ohms impedance, with a very serious 92.5dB sensitivity.
The enclosures run on dual 4” P2C membrane midrange drivers that can reach as low as 150Hz and whose response is complemented by a DOM22 soft dome tweeter with a cutoff point at 20kHz, with very transparent soundstaging for detailed sound with both music and movies. These 2-ways speakers will do great when used in main/rear or center position as they sport advanced engineering and tuning allowing them an enhanced performance with human voicing as well.
The Xi series loudspeakers are magnetically shielded and usually sell as components of 2.1 or multichannel systems.
