Definitive Technology is expanding its custom Reference series with two models, one of which is the company’s first in-ceiling speaker with angled baffle for use as an LCR in home theaters.
The other speaker is the company’s first bipolar surround to feature a sealed non-resonant medite enclosure and the ability to be installed either in-ceiling or in-wall.
The series features passive radiators and sealed medite enclosures.
The new models are expected to ship in the fall. The front-channel LCR, at a projected $599 each, features a 1-inch tweeter flanked on each side by a 5.25-inch woofer on the forward-firing baffle. The 6.5-inch passive radiators are on the downward firing baffle.
The $499-projected surround speaker, for rear- or side use,has a 1-inch tweeter on each of two angled baffles. Each tweeter is flanked by a 4.5-inch bass/midrange driver and a 4.5-inch passive radiator.
