In the center
The ideal addition to your home theater system: expand your Reference speakers with the Reference Center and immerse yourself in new, exhilarating worlds of sound. Perfectly matched to the Reference series in design and technology, you’ll keep everything in view even in the most exciting movie action. The 3-way speaker offers accurate, authentic dialogue reproduction and can reproduce deep sounds precisely and powerfully thanks to its 3-chamber construction with bass guide. The Reference Center’s curved walls and black adapter rings not only look elegant, they also optimize the speaker’s sound dispersion. So you can enjoy the Reference Center in any seat and experience your favorite movies and series in a whole new way. The Reference Center can be placed on a sideboard or freestanding on the optionally available Reference Center LS stand.
The Reference Center has been perfectly matched in design and technology to the Reference series and allows you to expand your stereo system into an ideal multi-channel home theater system. Its elegant design strictly follows the high acoustic demands that our developers place on a loudspeaker. The curved walls, the round baffle and the completely newly developed black adapter rings made of POM (polyoxymethylene) optimize the sound radiation of the center speaker. For harmonious integration into your living space, we offer the Reference Center in two different cabinet finishes: White Satin and Black Piano. The satin finish of the white version gives the speakers a modern and timeless appearance. The glossy surface of the “Black Piano” version captivates with an enormous depth effect, which is achieved by applying and polishing twelve layers of lacquer.
In the Reference Center, which is 70 centimeters wide and 27 centimeters high with base, three potent speaker drivers provide immersive sound. Two 174 mm BCT drivers and a 25 mm BC dome tweeter are responsible for the sound in the 3-way design. The black BCT cones of the midrange and woofers provide high rigidity and good internal damping despite their light weight. In addition, the midrange driver, which is installed in its own enclosure, uses a cone with TCC technology. These measures allow for precise and accurate reproduction of the bass and midrange with minimal distortion. The BC tweeter contributes to the center’s detailed and transparent reproduction. All speaker drivers use the latest generation Canton Wave surrounds to enable low-distortion reproduction at any volume.
The Reference Center scores not only with its excellent sound, but also with the use of high-quality components and equipment. For the Reference Center, we use WBT nextgen™ connection terminals made in Germany. They ensure a contact-safe and loss-free transmission of the audio signal. Thanks to our RC technology, the terminals also enable sensitive adjustment of the high and mid tones in 1.5 decibel steps. This level adjustment allows you to tailor the sound reproduction according to your individual preferences or the room acoustics and achieve an optimal listening experience.
