Don’t let the small size of these speakers fool you into thinking the LCR3 is anything other than no-compromise audio devices of the highest caliber! They have two long-excursion 3 ½-inch woofers with CPP (Composite Polypropylene/Paper) cones. This cone material combines the best of two materials—the “quickness” and fast transient response of polypropylene and the inherent self-damping traits of cellulose to eliminate any tendency towards harshness. The tweeter is a ¾-inch silk dome, which exhibits exceptional upper-octave dispersion—far superior to the conventional 1-inch domes found in most other speakers.The wide dispersion of the LCR3 imparts a spacious, 3-dimensional character to the sound and it removes the necessity of the listener having to sit right “in line” with the speaker in order to enjoy its best sound.The LCR3’s response extends down to 100Hz, more than deep enough for any accompanying subwoofer to be totally non-localizable.Their slim design and off center M-T-M array make these versatile speakers equally suited for LR satellite, center or surround applications. These speakers can be placed on a shelf, stand mounted or wall mounted.
