Inverted Dual Concentric Design

A unique, pivotable midrange and tweeter module offers up to 18 degrees of play, to allow for discreet positioning of the speakers whilst still directing sound towards the listener.

This 3-way speaker design best disperses audio evenly throughout your room to make sure you get the best audio experience wherever you’re sat.

Compensation Switches

Compensation Switches

Optimum performance can be achieved even after set-up, using the compensation switches on the C265-IDC. High-frequency level can be adjusted by +3dB/ -3dB or can be set flat.

Additionally, boundary compensation can be toggled on or off which will aid in removing any bass boom.

To access these compensation switches, you’ll just need to remove the magnetic grille and you’ll be able to adjust these settings manually.

Detailed Sound with C-CAM
