It could be argued that the center channel is the most important part of any surround-sound system. It’s where the lion’s share of dialogue comes from in a movie, and it’s where the focal point of the music often comes from in a multi-channel mix. It’s crucial to get it right.
Emit 25C gets it right.
It’s essentially an Emit 30, turned on its side, with the mid/bass drivers placed on either side of the tweeter. The drivers are the same; the crossover is the same, with a different box and port-tuning. But that’s not doing it a disservice; quite the opposite. It means you get total consistency between the center speaker and the two flanking it (whether those are Emit 10s, 20s, 30s, or even 50s), along with any others you place around your listening position.
High-quality mid/bass drivers
Emit 25C uses the same 14cm MSP woofers as Emit 10 and Emit 30. MSP stands for Magnesium Silicate Polymer. It’s a material developed decades ago, and have been refining ever since for use in all of the most legendary speakers (including Confidence, Contour, Heritage Special, and many more). MSP provides exactly the right combination of lightness, stiffness, and damping to reproduce your material with all the detail the artist wants you to hear. Each cone is made in one piece, with an integrated dust-cap. The ‘balance ribs’ you’ll see in the center are bonded directly to the voice-coil, so the whole mechanism moves as one piece – bringing with it immense control and detail over its sound.
The voice coils themselves are made from lightweight aluminum wire, clad in a thin layer of copper. Aluminum was used here on the two-layer glass-fiber former because its weight doesn’t impede the driver’s movement. The copper layer means it can take more advantage of the magnetic energy generated by the dual-stacked ferrite magnet system. It magnifies that flux energy for more power – without sacrificing fleet-footed dynamics.
Emit 25C has a high-performance Cerotar tweeter, along with all other Emit speakers – and the award-winning Evoke family. It’s based on the renowned Esotar Forty tweeter found in the Special Forty anniversary speaker and features innovative technology that reduces unwanted resonance and optimizes airflow. As with Evoke, Confidence, and Contour i (among others), it also has a secret innovation: the Hexis. This is a small dimpled inner dome that reduces reflections to the back of the playing surface. You’ll hear its effect in the form of incredible detail resolution: sweet, smooth treble that doesn’t fatigue your ears – even during a long listening session.
Danish cabinet design
Emit 25C is available in three custom laminate finishes: Black, White, and Walnut. They’re designed to complement each other, and blend seamlessly into your living room. That’s especially important for a center channel, where (as much as we hate to say it), you should be spending more time looking at the picture above it than the speaker itself.
Emit 25C is the lynchpin of your home cinema speaker system. Power, control, and finesse rolled into one compact unit.
