  • Crystal Clear Vocals and Dialogue
  • The Center of Attention
  • Detail Oriented


Aluminum Dome Tweeter for clear, precise highs

The D5c couples a vertically offset 1” Aluminum Dome Tweeter with our 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens™. We offset the tweeters by 5°, minimizing wave cancellations off the front baffle to deliver a more precise center stereo image and ensure clear, detailed high-frequency performance.


Exclusive BDSS™
for detailed dialogue and vocals

The D5c’s dual 5.25” patented Balanced Double Surround System™ (BDSS) woofers provide greater excursion and output for superior midrange detail and tighter bass compared with other drivers of similar size.


Audiophile-Quality Crossovers for details that bring music and movies to life

Built with the latest premium audiophile-quality parts, including polypropylene metal-film capacitors and air-core inductors. These high-end components meticulously manage frequencies for clean and crystalline treble, refined and articulate midrange, and linear, low-distortion bass.


Linear Response Waveguide™ for clarity that never stops

Our patented Linear Response Waveguide™ extends both on-axis and off-axis frequency dispersion for more natural midrange timbre and precise imaging.


Artistry to the eye and ear

Extruded aluminum front baffles capture a clean, modern aesthetic with a bead-blasted finish for a timeless look and feel to fit any décor.

Each speaker is meticulously sanded and painted with five layers of premium gloss paint, then buffed to a near-mirror finish for an undeniably fashionable look in your home.
