Optimum surround sound home theater reproduction places heavy demands on the center channel speaker, which in many respects is the main speaker in the system and often handles 50% or more of the program material. Itʼs no place to compromise and settle for second best. All Definitive CS series center channel models are designed with the same rigid standards and high performance goals as main left and right front speakers and feature wide frequency response and extended dynamic range with extraordinary detail and articulation.

Bass Radiator Technology Makes a Dramatic Audible Difference
Most audio experts agree that the ideal surround speaker system would have 5 identical truly full range speakers at every position. But most rooms and setups canʼt accommodate 5 identical large speakers. So we engineered the next best thing – a center speaker with robust bass response that fits on a shelf.

The CS-8040HDʼs bass radiator gives you full, rich center channel sound
The CS-8040HD features two patented high-definition Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) 4-1/2 inch drivers that are pressure-coupled to a 5 x 10 inch racetrack-shaped planar Low-Bass Radiator. The result is bass extension unheard of in a center speaker of this size and price. With the CS-8040HD you will fully realize the performance potential of the center channel program material as the movie director intended it to be heard.

Its upward-firing bass radiator requires only 1″ (25mm) of clearance, so it works perfectly whether you mount it in free-air or put it in a cabinet.

The perfect complement to a full SX-series surround sound speaker set, the Cambridge Audio SX70 is the natural choice.

CRISP AND CLEAR SOUND FOR ARTICULATE VOCALS

Featuring a silk dome tweeter, the Cambridge Audio SX70 offers a smooth response that\'s essential for clear, accurate dialogue. Even during intense scenes in action movies, the dialogue can still clearly be heard.

TWIN WOOFERS FOR BROAD STAGING

Using two woofers, placed either side of the tweeter, gives the SX70 a wide soundstage, meaning that it connects up with your front speakers seamlessly. Now, when a jet aircraft rushes across the screen, the sound will follow from left to centre to right without a break.

TOP QUALITY CONSTRUCTION FOR LASTING APPEAL

Made from dense, MDF (Medium Density Fibreboard) rather than flimsy chipboard, the SX70s are built to last. That solid construction also has a knock-on effect in helping to improve the sound quality through higher cabinet rigidity. Other neat design features that we love include the recessed drive units with hidden fixing bolts, making sure the front the panel looks every bit as smooth as the sound.

PART OF THE SX-SERIES AND SO IDEAL FOR SURROUND SOUND SYSTEMS

With floorstanding and standmount sound speakers available, the Cambridge Audio SX70 is ideal as part of a surround sound speaker system. With a similar sonic balance to the other SX-series speakers you get a smooth, uniform sound right the way around your room for a totally enveloping sound.

 

Magnetically Shielded Are they magnetically shielded? Allows speaker to be placed near a CRT TV/Monitor or sensitive magnetically stored data without the risk of damage.
Sensitivity (dB) The higher this figure is the easier the speaker is to drive and, hence, requires a less powerful amplifier 85
Impedance (ohms) Resistance. A standard figure is 8ohms 8
Bi-wireable Is it bi-wirable? Separate earthing cables for tweeter and woofer units - gives a more precise sound when used with bi-wire cable
Power Rating (Watts) Maximum power output long term/short term (RMS) 100
Dimensions Dimensions of speaker cabinet (W x D x H) in mm 360w x 246d x 138h
Weight Weight of speaker, unboxed, in KG 4
Black Does the speaker come in a black finish?
Wood Does the speaker come in a wood or wood style finish?
Other Colour Does the speaker come in another coloured finish?
Freq Response (Hz) The lower the first figure the deeper the bass should be 65 - 20,000
Speaker Enclosure Type Type of speaker enclosure. Infinite baffle cabinets are sealed and so are often less fussy about placement. Usually they do require a little more power to drive, though. Bass reflex speakers are usually more efficient than infinite baffle designs but may require more care in terms of placement. Rear port designs, in particular, usually need at least 15-30cm (6 - 12 inches) between them and the wall behind, for a balanced bass response.
