perlisten S5c centre speaker

the Signature S5c centre speaker is the smallest option to be developed to provide timbre matched centre information for Perlisten's Signature of loudspeakers.

Perlisten at the little audio company,
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.

S5c centre speaker,

The Perlisten S5c is perfectly matched to the S Series thanks to the DPC array (read more here), comprising of three 28mm domes in a vertical array. The centre dome is a Beryllium 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 flanking 28mm carbon 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.

Signature S5c centre speaker,

The DPC array sits between two 7" 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 S5c will cover 80Hz-20kHz within only a very narrow +/-1.5dB deviation, with typical against-wall placement providing a bass response down to 33Hz at -10dB, and produce a peak output of 113.6dB.

All of this tech helps the S5c 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.
