produced using the extensive technology used to create Perlisten's Signature Series, the Reference 5c centre speaker has been developed to provide timbre matched centre information for Perlisten's Reference of loudspeakers.

about Perlisten loudspeakers,
Perlisten DPC array,

At the heart of every Perlisten loudspeakers is the DPC array - Directivity Pattern Control, provides controlled dispersion in any type of room, and benefits music and home theatre alike.

Reference R5c,

The flanking 26mm midrange domes cover between 1.25kHz and 4.4kHz, producing a more responsive midrange that is far less coloured by what would conventionally be a larger driver.

The Perlisten R5c is perfectly matched to the R Series thanks to the DPC array (read more here), comprising of three 26mm soft domes in a vertical array. The centre dome is the HF unit, covering frequencies above 4.4kHz. The output from this unit is controlled on the horizontal plane to reduce dispersion to focus on the listening position, reducing HF reflection from side walls. Vertically, its output is highly controlled, vastly reducing floor and ceiling reflections.

The DPC array sits between two 6.5" bass drivers covering from 1.25kHz downwards, acting in a sealed cabinet making them very room friendly. They're flexible enough to also be used as all five loudspeakers in a wall-mounted 5.1 surround system, for example, for those wanting a non in-wall, but discrete high performance system.

In a typical home theatre setup, the R4c will cover 80Hz-20kHz within only a very narrow +/-1.5dB deviation, with typical against-wall placement providing a bass response down to 49Hz at -10dB, and produce a peak output of 112.6dB.

All of this tech helps the R5c achieve a THX Ultra rating, capable of effortlessly filling large rooms with cinema levels of sound quality. A THX Dominus rating is achieved when used as surrounds.
