Sony's Home Theater Muscle 

Ready to upgrade your stereo system with a meaty, powerful center channel? Take a look at our Sony SS-CS8 2-Way 3-Driver Center Channel Speaker. With a pair of woofers, a dedicated rear-firing port, and a top-of-the-line tweeter, this speaker comes ready to blow your socks off with truly amazing sound reproduction. The muscle of your home theater system is here. 

The Hifi Difference 

The part of the speaker that makes sound is called a driver. Every speaker -- the speakers in your headphones, your earbuds, and your favorite devices -- has these. Most speakers use full-range drivers, but these tend to muddy subtle, complex, and layered sounds. True high-fidelity speakers, like the SS-CS8, make up for this by using three different types of drivers for specific kinds of sounds: tweeters for high ranges, squawkers for the middle ranges, and woofers for bass. 

Crisp Surround Sound, Redefined  

Looking for the richest, clearest, most natural highs? Look no further than the performance delivered by the SS-CS8’s 1” polyester tweeter. This little wonder is specially designed to deliver an ultra-responsive, wide-dispersion, high-frequency listening experience -- perfect for human voices. Your Sony center channel is the perfect compliment to any surround sound system!  

Two Unique Woofers 

Perhaps the SS-CS8’s most impressive feature is in its pair of 4” woofers. Driven by unique dual-layer mica foam diaphragms, their upper surfaces deliver rich, subtle, and faithful sound quality, while the bottom layer delivers an incredible depth of response with its low weight and great strength that only a Sony home theater system can provide.  

Sony = Bigger, Better Bass 

Be mesmerized by the incredibly fast and powerful bass response! With a dedicated rear-firing port and fine timing alignment across the entire frequency range, the SS-CS8 realizes deep, rich, natural bass. Rock your senses and give your music the foundation it deserves. 

Created for Incredible Sound 

With its incredibly precise reproduction, positioning, and depth, the SS-CS8 delivers a rich, full soundstage. Fill your room with waves of amazingly detailed sound and feel the energy and passion of the original performance! 

Superior Construction, Superior Performance 

Featuring careful component selection, meticulous construction, and outstanding attention to detail, the SS-CS8 is built to a better standard than any other speaker in its price range. Experience the difference a truly high-end speaker system makes, even on a medium-sized budget. 

Build the Complete Set 

Ready to expand your stereo system? Our SS-CS8’s are just one part of Sony’s CS sound system. Between the SS-CS3 floorstanding speakers, SS-CS5 bookshelf speakers, and SA-CS9 subwoofer, we’re sure to have every speaker you need to flood your home theater with bright, clear Sony sound.

Great sound and Great design
After doing countless research to find the perfect center channel speaker for my home theatre set-up, I decided to go with the Sony SSCS8 center channel speaker. At a great price, I was weary of the quality... However I was surprised. This beautifully designed speaker packs a punch with great clarity, which is needed being the most important speaker to any theatre system.

All my speakers are Sony, main back including the receiver (DA1800ES). The center speaker, was all that was missing. Excellent sound system.

Amazing Life Like Sound!
Have been so tired of the tiny center speakers most systems have, and bought this one hoping for more robust, deep vocals & talk channel sound. I love this speaker. Brings everything to life. Sounds real, not tinny.

It's a Sony!
ust hooked it up to my 8 year old LG Home Theater system ( Haven't bought my new Sony receiver yet) and it still sounds fantastic! I just popped on the first Underworld movie and it was so loud and clear I could hear every one of Selene's footsteps and every drop of rain with absolutely zero distortion. The build quality is very impressive as well this thing is super heavy and huge compared to my old LG center channel which was made of plastic and feels cheap and small in comparison (The Sony is made of a sturdy wood). Very impressed with this Center Channel speaker for the price, I felt like I stole this lol. Can't wait until I get the towers tomorrow to try them suckers out if this is any indication of what to expect quality wise.

My previous A/V Receiver (bought in 2000) did not have a Center Speaker option. My newly purchased STRDH770 does and so I selected this one. It is more than enough sound for me!

My old center speaker from JBL started clucking, so I got one from Sony. Better quality, better sound. I am very happy.
