Product Information

By designing the midrange/tweeter array in an arc and including a meticulous crossover design, McIntosh acoustic design engineers have created a speaker capable of prodigious power handing that delivers a wide and deep soundstage.

The XCS2K has three sets of gold-plated input connectors, to allow bi-amping, tri-amping and wiring. Not limited to center channel applications, the XCS2K can be used as a front left/right or surround speakers. A tilting base stand is designed for flexibility of installation, and also reduces excess floor and ceiling reflections.

 

McIntosh Labs XCS2K Center Loudspeaker Features:

  • TITANIUM DOME TWEETERS: These dome drivers have titanium diaphragms with frequency response to 45kHz. Their small size is ideal fro producing a wide angle stereo sound image.
  • INVERTED DOME MIDRANGES: Each midrange driver is 2” in diameter with a titanium inverted dome. Titanium has great rigidity resulting in smoother uncolored reproduction throughout the critical mid frequencies.
  • ALUMINUM CONE WOOFERS: These metal cone woofers produce powerful bass down to 16Hz without any trace of “chestyness.” The resulting increase in clarity is easily noticed with piano and voice.
  • THREE SETS OF INPUT: Three sets of massive gold plated input connectors make Bi and Tri-amping and Bi and Tri-wiring a snap.
  • ARCED MID-TWEETER-MID DESIGN: Placing a row of tweeters between two rows of midranges in an arc yields wide dispersion in all directions. This design projects a wide image and deep sound stage throughout the listening room. The sealed aluminum cabinet allows the system to be located close to a rear wall without bass “boom.”
