Alcons Audio has introduced the CSS3 a two-way ultra-compact cinema surround loudspeaker designed to meet the requirements of digital cinema content today and in the future. Featuring a one-inch soft-dome tweeter with single 6.5-inch HiFi-grade woofer the CSS3 delivers exceptional performance from a highly compact and efficient package says the company. Used together with the CR1 ultra-compact three-way front system and CB181s ultra-shallow subwoofer it forms a package for small to medium home theatres cinemas screening rooms and post-production studios. A 15-degree slanted baffle together with the wide horizontal dispersion caters for a smooth LF/HF blending in installations where the surrounds are mounted closely to the audience. The enclosure design provides for low profile wall mounting with the reflex vent located on the underside of the cabinet and the CSS3's dedicated bracket enables optimized projection. The 16 ohm impedance enables economical powering up to 16 units (2 ohms) on an ALC amplified loudspeaker controller (two channels driven) and the system includes dedicated (passive) filtering and system equalizing. The CSS3 is powered and controlled by the ALC amplified loudspeaker controller; through the SDP (speaker drive processor) circuit the ALC offers CSS3-specific drive processing with response optimization dedicated power and excursion protection delivering maximized performance with full system reliability and minimized maintenance. Alcons Architect Color Option ACO means that the CSS3 can be ordered in more than 180 different RAL colors the standard European architectural color matching system. Alcons Audio
