–Robert Kozel, Secrets of Home Theater and High Fidelity on the SuperCenter XXL
The SuperCenters are ultra-high performance center channel speakers appropriate for the highest quality home theater systems. They are designed to perfectly complement and match the GoldenEar Triton Tower and Aon Bookshelf loudspeakers, both sonically and cosmetically.
The SuperCenters have a sophisticated industrial design that is both attractive and functional, both minimizing their apparent size as well as enhancing their acoustic performance. These center channel models incorporate a D’Appolito Array of two newly developed long-throw 5-1/4-inch bass/midrange drivers surrounding one of GoldenEar’s signature High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) tweeters. The 5-1/4-inch drivers incorporate spiderleg cast baskets for rigidity and minimal internal reflection, as well as the unique multi-vaned phase plugs (MVPP), to minimize cross-apex wave propagation interference. They also utilize top-mounted pressure-coupled quadratic planar low frequency radiators that both extend the bass response as well as provide the bass/midrange drivers with ideal acoustic loading and damping. Since the top-mounted passive radiators put out a very low frequency pressure wave, they only require an inch or two of clearance above them so they can be placed in cabinets/wall units if desired.
The SuperCenters offer the same lifelike, highly detailed, high-resolution, smooth, open, boxless sound quality that the GoldenEar SuperSat centers are famous for, but with additional low frequency extension and greater power handling capacity for greater dynamic range and impact.
The mega-high-performance SuperCenter XXL is only 35-inch wide and includes four 5-1/4-inch drivers, the GoldenEar High Velocity Folded Ribbon tweeter, three planar passive radiators, and the unique linear-phase crossover, employing fully balanced technology and precision film capacitors. The unique balanced topology reduces stray capacitance in the magnetic circuit, among other things, with the result of dramatically improved clarity. There are three separate internal chambers: a larger one in the center which contains two 5-1/4-inch drivers which run up to meet the tweeter and are coupled to the larger, 7-inch x 10-inch passive radiator in the center, and two smaller ones which each contain a special 5-1/4-inch driver engineered for low frequency response, which runs up to 500 Hz, and is coupled to one of the smaller, 6-3/4-inch x 8-inch passives.
