Product Specifications

Thanks to a new patent-pending gimbal mechanism, known as Controlled Dispersion Technology (CDT), both the high and low frequencies of the CDT-5800-C can be directed towards the listening area. Because the tweeter is independently adjustable from the woofer, this speaker offers even more precise localization. The CDT-5800-C features a 1-inch titanium tweeter mated to a swiveling 100-degree Tractrix Horn. This swiveling horn design dramatically increases efficiency by enabling the speaker to produce more output using less energy. Additionally, a horn-loaded tweeter works well in instances where you want to point the sound to a specific location because it has more controlled directivity than a conventional dome tweeter. The speaker's 8-inch Cerametallic woofer also has great positioning capabilities. It can rotate a full 360 degrees and then shift 15 degrees in any direction. This flexibility combined with the swiveling tweeter puts you in complete control of where the sound will go. Other professional grade features, such as a premium network and treble and bass contour switches, help the CDT-5800-C establish a new benchmark in architectural audio excellence.
