Quad 4" Cerametallic Woofers with Faraday rings
Robust Input Terminals for any connection type
Sealed enclosure for ease of placement
The Next Generation of our iconic Reference Premiere series, the RP-404C II centre speaker utilises new technologies championed by our brand in a new sleek, modern design. Maintaining the Silicone Tractrix Horn feature that the range is known for, along with the newly advanced Cerametallic Woofers, this centre channel boasts an impressive frequency response, level of sensitivity, and dynamic performance that provides the listener with an all-encompassing sound at great ease. Furthermore, the all-new shallow-depth sealed design allows for convenient placement options, and crisp, clear vocals in a small and versatile package.
90° X 90° SILICON COMPOSITE HYBRID TRACTRIX HORN
Horn loading maximises efficiency and increases detail while focusing high frequencies towards the listening area. Proprietary Tractrix® geometry provides the most efficient transfer of high frequency waves into the listening area. The phase plug and compressed moulded silicon face ensure smooth frequency response. When combined, the cleanest, most natural sound possible is created. The second generation increases horn size for a larger soundstage and enhanced directivity.
LINEAR TRAVEL SUSPENSION (LTS) TITANIUM DIAPHRAGM TWEETER
The exclusive Linear Travel Suspension minimises distortion for enhanced, detailed performance. LTS tweeters are a hallmark of previous Reference lines, making it a core component of some of the best speakers in the world.
VENTED TWEETER DESIGN
The vented tweeter housing reduces standing waves that create unwanted harmonics, resulting in enhanced detail and clarity in high frequency reproduction.
CERAMETALLIC WOOFERS – ALL NEW DESIGN
A signature feature on the Reference Premiere series, Cerametallic™ woofers are exceptionally rigid and lightweight for minimal distortion and maximum efficiency. New voice coils are 70% larger in diameter resulting in improved power handling and greater cone control for greater linearity and flawless reproduction. New aluminium shorting rings reduce distortion as well as increased power handling and the new motor structure improve transit response with more control with greater speed and accuracy.
An all-new shallow-depth sealed design allows for this centre channel speaker to be used for in-wall placement and prevents bass-loading against a back wall in tight spaces like fireplace mantles. The result is crisp, clear vocals in a small and versatile package.
NEW AND IMPROVED INPUT PANEL
Featuring audiophile-grade wire and easily accessible aluminium binding posts for any connection type.
FURNITURE GRADE MATERIALS AND FINISHES
Finishes include ebony vinyl and walnut vinyl that boast satin painted baffles with a scratch-resistant finish.
The attractive grille attaches magnetically for an elegant transition from powerful showstopper to discrete performance piece and the runner bumpers of the previous generation have been replaced with Cork pads, for increased security on a stand or table.
