Proficient High -Power 8" LCR Ceiling Speaker Designed for High -End Home Theaters

C870 Is Flagship of New Kevlar Speaker Series

RIVERSIDE, CA: July, 2004: Proficient Audio Systems announced its flagship C870 LCR Home Theater ceiling speaker, extending their product line for high -end home theater systems in new custom homes.


Proficient LCR ceiling speakers are both innovative and revolutionary. The principal design highlight is that the woofer and tweeter bridge are set at a 15° angle while the tweeter pivots another 30°. This allows you to direct critical midrange and high frequencies at the sweet spot listening area.

"The Proficient LCR ceiling speaker product line has become very popular as it solves a whole lot of problems when you want a built -in home theater system. Now, with the C870, we have a top -end system with a very aggressive set of performance criteria," said Keith Marshall, Vice President of Proficient Audio. "They're an excellent choice when designing a system for a big room where you want a high -end, built -in system but still want to be able to generate high sound pressure levels."

The C870 is a two -way system featuring an 8" Kevlar woofer with cast magnesium basket, 1 1/2 " voice coil and 25 ounce magnet structure for very high power handling. It has a 1" pivoting aluminum dome tweeter for ultra -smooth top -end response and +/ - 3dB bass and treble contour switches to shape the speaker to the characteristics of the room. "With 175 watt power handling, they're a superb match to all of the high -powered 7.1 receivers out on the market today. If you use the C870's, you can drive a lot of power into them and they just don't fold up on you," Marshall noted.

The MSRP of seven C870 speakers is $2,625 and are available with optional pre -construction brackets and metal back boxes. They are all fully backed by a 10 -year limited warranty and are readily available now.
