Stunning loudspeaker performance on a budget...

X-series speakers represent the very best value AV123 has to offer.

The 'trickle down' of technology has allowed us to offer gorgeous custom cabinets, high quality crossover components and custom drive units in speakers at an incredibly low cost to you.


The x -ls monitor, x -cs center and x -sls...the first loudspeakers in the x -series by AV123, designed from the ground up by Mark Schifter and Danny Richie, with one main goal in mind; to be, bar none, the best loudspeakers ever created for less than $300 per pair. The x -series is the result of these efforts and we're pleased to announce that we reached our goal.

The x -ls loudspeaker is a wonderful main speaker in a two -channel system and works equally as well as mains, center and surrounds in any home theater. If you are looking for a starter system, we can't think of a better place to start. The x -ls has a wonderfully smooth and detailed top end without being bright or over -bearing. Equally smooth midrange, punchy mid -bass, and surprisingly full and tight bass round out this gem of a speaker.

The x -sls is similar to the x -ls in that they share the same drive units and crossover components however the x -sls is gorgeous full tower. No stands needed here! This extra cabinet volume allows a lower tuning point for extended bass response over the x -ls. A good portion of the cabinet cavity is designed to be filled with sand or shot to provide exceptional stability.

The x -cs is the 'center speaker' for the x -series lineup but that is not all it can do. Like the other speakers in the x -series, the x -cs has a wonderfully smooth and detailed top end without being bright or over -bearing. Equally smooth midrange, punchy mid -bass, and surprisingly full and tight bass round out this gem of a speaker. Oriented horizontally in center speaker duty, and with its shielded drivers, the x -cs is a perfect compliment to the x -ls and x -sls. Oriented vertically, the x -cs is an outstanding main speaker. With its dual 6.5" woofers, it can keep up with larger rooms and higher SPL's.

All x -series speakers feature a 3/4' braced MDF cabinet wrapped in a gorgeous real wood veneer or beautifully finished in a silky -smooth satin black . Housed in this cabinet is a custom -built Peerless 6.5' curvilinear shaped treated paper cone woofer (times two for the x -cs). It uses a polymer chassis to prevent transmission of resonances to the front baffle, and the voice coil is vented on the outside through the frame and pole piece. The tweeter is a ferro -fluid cooled 1' treated fabric dome, well damped with three separate layers through a hollow pole piece. The result? All drive units perform exactly to specification throughout their operating band without imparting any coloration of their own to the sound.

At AV123 sound quality is priority # 1...though a speaker does not have to be ugly to sound good. We exclusively use real wood veneers and/or high quality paints on all our speakers. Even our black speakers stand out from the competition. Exceptionally smooth satin black is the norm here - not the 'orange peel' finishes seen on many other speakers.

We use 3/4' MDF to construct the cabinet; no particle board here. When is the last time you saw a pair of bookshelf speakers at your local electronics store that weigh 17lbs EACH? A $139 center that weighs 33lbs? That quality construction translates into less cabinet resonances and stored energy (cumulative spectral decay)...which means what you put into the speaker is what you get out...and nothing more.

x -series subwoofer

The first subwoofer in the x -series of speakers and electronics; the x -sub is perfect for smaller home theater and music systems. The x -sub boasts strong output into the high 20 hz region, great attack and decay times and thanks to its folded, slotted porting, virtually no port distortion.

Several connections options allow the x -sub to seamlessly integrate with almost any system:

High level (speaker level) inputs and outputs allow you to connect the x -sub to an integrated amp, pre -amp or older receiver that has no dedicated subwoofer output.

A stereo pair of low level (RCA) inputs allows connection to the variable output of many pre -amps.

A single LFE (RCA) input is the perfect connection to modern receivers and processors. The x -subs' internal crossover is defeated with this connection allowing you to use the bass management in your receiver or processor.

At AV123 sound quality is our #1 priority but we also think that a subwoofer does not have to be ugly to sound good. The x -sub is finished in gorgeous White Shadow Maple and ultra -smooth Satin Black. We exclusively use real wood veneer or high quality paints on all our subwoofers. Even our black speakers stand out from the competition. Exceptionally smooth satin black is the norm here - not at all like the 'orange peel' finishes you see on many other subwoofers.

We use 1' (25mm) MDF to construct the cabinet; no particle board here. When is the last time you saw a small subwoofer at your local electronics store that weighs 38lbs? That quality construction translates into less cabinet resonances and stored energy (cumulative spectral decay) which means what you put into the sub is what comes out and nothing more.

As always, all our products come with a 30 day in home trial period which means you can try out anything you like in your home for 30 days. If it does not meet your expectations, ship it back to us and receive a full refund (less shipping).
