Canton intros three new CD series speakers

Building on the success of the company’s recently introduced Movie CD 1 home theater speaker system, the new models feature the same striking silver aluminum styling and advanced driver and crossoverdesign to deliver stereo and home theater audio reproduction that perfectly balances form and function.

Unlike many mini-satellite speakers, the Canton CD-10 employs engineering and design advances in driver, circuitry, and cabinet design to deliver a frequency response of 80 Hz to 25 kHz from a speaker that measures just over 5-inches tall, and under 4-inches deep and wide. Among the advances that allow this feat are a new, proprietary 3-inch aluminum woofer, high-integrity aluminum housing, a 3.9 kHz crossover network, and a sophisticated passive filter circuit which blocks unwanted low-frequency signals that can generate harmonic distortions. The CD 10 has a suggested retail price of $125 per speaker.

The CD 50 and CD 100 speakers each incorporate the same drivers as the CD 10, but with a total of four of the 3-inch mid/bass drivers flanking a single tweeter, one pair on either side. Canton engineers have designed an unusual “two-and-one-half-way” crossover circuit to prevent the problematic mid-bass cancellations that hinder performance in typical multi-woofer speakers. With this circuitry, one pair of drivers handles both bass and midrange frequencies, while the other pair is responsible only for bass reproduction.

Like all the CD speakers, the CD 50 is magnetically shielded, and can be mounted horizontally for use as a center channel, or vertically as a stereo or surround speaker. The CD 100 is intended for use as a vertical ‘tower’, and stands nearly 40 inches tall atop a weighted aluminum baseplate for stability. Thanks to its larger, ported cabinet, it boasts an extended low bass response. The CD 50 and CD 100 have suggested retail prices of $300 and $500 each, respectively.

The Canton CD-series speakers are finished in striking aluminum with perforated silver metal grills, and may be matched with any of Canton’s AS line of active subwoofers for a complete home theater or satellite-subwoofer system.
