Two-Way Acoustic Suspension Center Channel Speaker
The NS-C444 center channel speaker has been designed specifically for home theater applications. The speaker uses an acoustic suspension design and incorporates dual 5″ polymer-injected mica diaphragm cone woofers and a 1″ aluminum dome tweeter. For improved imaging, the tweeter utilizes Yamaha’s waveguide horn.
Unlike most homes, movie theaters use sound absorbing materials on walls and ceilings. The result is that the sound reaching your ears is the sound wave produced by the speakers rather than reflected off the walls. Yamaha has created wave guides that greatly reduce reflected sound and increase the proportion of directly generated sound waves reaching your ears. The result is a clear and precise sense of sound direction and placement.
The speaker is magnetically shielded, so it can be placed on a TV or video monitor without degrading the picture via stray magnetic fields.
The NS-C444 is enclosed in an elliptical form cabinet with a high-gloss black finish, which provides solid construction with minimal sound diffraction.
