McIntosh has announced the XCS1.5K Center Channel loudspeaker, a critical component to any home theater system and designed as a complement the brand’s XRT2 1K or XRT1 1K floor-standing speakers.
The center channel speaker when done correctly is designed to work seamlessly with the front left and right speakers to create a cohesive soundstage as sounds move from one side to the other. Rated to handle 1,500-Watts of power, the XCS1.5K is a unique hybrid of a 3 and 4-way speaker and can be used with a variety of McIntosh home theater processors and amplifiers to make a complete high-performance home theater experience.
Key features include:
43 individual speaker drivers
Four 8” long throw carbon fiber sandwich cone woofers housed in a vented bas cabinet
Fourteen 2.5” aluminum midranges
Twenty-five ¾” dome tweeters
Can be tilted to one of five preset angles to be optimally aimed to the listening position
Removable black cloth speaker grill and finished in 7 layers of high-gloss piano black paint
The XCS1.5K will be available via Authorized McIntosh Dealers beginning October 2022, retailing for $40,000 USD
