The Niles Audio HDLCR High Definition Side / Rear Channel Bookshelf Speaker is designed for use as a high definition, front left, center and right channel in multi-channel music or 5.1 / 7.1 channel home theater systems. These speakers are ideal for placement on sheld or flat surface, providing an easier installation of the same HDLCR in-wall speakers
, sold separately.They employ several unique components that have been specifically engineered to deliver the most subtle sounds in music or the booming action sound in a movie. This includes the Niles Audio Directed Sound Field Geometry (DSFG). With DSFG, the tweeter is offset which results in the flattest frequency and phase response, offering the optimum performance to a seated listener, even if the speaker is mounted above a built-in TV. With Niles Audio high definition voice matching, these speakers sill be perfectly compatible with other Niles Audio HD in-wall, on-wall, and ceiling-mount models. The ideal setup would include the Niles Audio HDFX
speakers, which are used as the side / rear channel speakers. They are the best choice for any home theater where the quality of sound is the most important consideration as they exceed specifications set forth by Dolby Laboratories for the accurate reproduction of Dolby Digital-Encoded Sources. One speaker is included; you will need to purchase three speakers to build out a front left, center and right channel installation.About the Woofer
The Niles Audio HD speakers have a woofer that features an injection-molded TCC (T
arbon, and C
eramic-filled) polypropylene cone that is extremely stiff and lightweight, which helps reduce breakup and lowers distortion while delivering an accurate, dynamic response. A butyl rubber cone surround dampens midrange resonance and provides exceptional durability. A vented pole piece adds powerful bass response. A bumpback woofer magnet allows a high level of bass performance to be achieved. About the Tweeter
The Niles Audio HD speakers have a Teteron tweeter with a a tri-laminate design that eliminates unwanted resonances and prevents breakup modes, leaving an ultra-clear, sweet, natural sound which still maintains ultra-wide dispersion for clear and detailed high-frequencies. The tweeter is features precision adjustment control which moves in 1mm increments, then pivots for precise aiming of high frequencies. This can be done post-installation so you can direct sound in the ideal listening area.Additional Features
There are two controls that help fine tune your listening experience. 1) an acoustic fine-tuning control on the rear panel enables optimization of the high frequencies and dialog, and 2) a switch to deactivate the DSFG in certain applications, for example when the speaker is installed at ear level behind a perforated screen, the loudspeaker’s response can be improved with the DSFG off.
