A system for correcting time alignment enables a better, more precise positioning of vocals and instruments within the stereo panorama.
Constant Directivity Concept
A newly designed waveguide and phase plug ensure broad and even sound dispersion.
A sound-damping chamber specially designed according to the Helmholtz Resonance principle ensures a clean sound. This effectively eliminates the formation of standing waves and unwanted resonances within the enclosure.
Downfiring bass reflex system
A bass reflex system prevents unwanted chuffing noise. Cleverly positioned on the bottom of the speaker enclosures, it makes it possible to position the speakers anywhere in the room without altering their sound.
The Theater 500 uses an authentic 3-way driver system. The amply equipped system employs a total of 2 bass woofers with lightweight but rigid Kevlar membranes to produce deep, resonant bass without an additional subwoofer. The midrange drivers and tweeters delineate voices and instruments with incredible precision, resulting in an almost tangible soundscape.
Advanced Klippel measurements are used to make an already excellent system even better. This technology uses lasers to detect tiny imperfections along the driver membranes, allowing them to be corrected for an improved frequency response.
A newly designed wave guide and phase plug gives the system a broad and even sound dispersion. This makes it possible for everyone in the room to enjoy the same well-blended sound with excellent speech intelligibility and localisation.

The following recommendations apply to centre speakers.
For existing shelf speakers or small satellite speakers:
• M 320 C
• M 420 C

The following recommendations apply to rear and/or effect speakers.
For placement on the wall - up to rooms of 35 m²:
• M 450 D full-range dipole
For placement on a stand - up to rooms of 35 m²:
• M 450 FCR direct emitters
For placement on the wall - up to rooms of 50 m²:
• M 550 D full-range dipole
• M 620 D
For placement on a stand - up to rooms of 50 m²:
• M 550 FCR direct emitters
The subwoofer plays a far more important role for a home cinema than a pure stereo system. Not only are the base pulses of a DVD soundtrack much more intense and dynamic, but the bass sound effects even have their own so-called LFE channel ("Low Frequency Effects").

The listed room size and thus the choice of subwoofer must be differentiated according to the following criteria:
• Own experience with bass playback (have I already had a subwoofer or very strong bass speakers?)
• Own preference (do I like intensive bass or listen to intensive bass music?)
• How large is the room to be filled with sound? Only the area between the couch and the TV/the projection plays an essential role here. Adjacent areas, such as the dining room or a hallway are not decisive.
• How sensitive are my neighbours? What's the use of the correct subwoofer for my room size if I can never use the subwoofer in its full performance because of my neighbours?
Bi-wiring states that the corresponding speaker can be controlled at the same time with two different speaker cables, meaning via separated input sockets for the treble and mid-tone range on one hand, and for the bass range of the frequency switch on the other. This could improve the sound even more. Bi-wiring is the prerequisite for bi-amping.
