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.
