2-Way LCR / Center-Channel Speaker. The V5520 features a 5.25-inch VDT woofer, a 5.25-inch VDT bass radiator and a 1 inch woven synthetic soft dome tweeter for optimal sound. When placed horizontally above or below the television, the V5520 gives a center anchor with great intelligibility both in front and to the sides of the screen. If placed vertically, the V5520 serves as a left-right-main speaker, giving it added versatility and allowing the use of the same speaker for three front channels in a home entertainment system. For in-ceiling/in-wall options, pair the V5520 with the CS-6R, CS-6R DVT, CI6.0 IX QM Kit or the CI20X.
The Phase Velocity series delivers incredibly accurate audio reproduction at entry-level prices. The series includes bookshelf, tower, and surround models.
Curved fiberboard enclosures minimize the bassmuddying coloration that occurs when standing waves bounce between parallel cabinet walls.
Soft Dome Tweeter Design
Phase Technology's patented soft dome tweeter reproduces silky smooth and defined high frequencies, making it the perfect complement to the VDT (Vapor Deposited Titanium) woofer that produces extraordinary bass and mid range frequencies.
Absolute Phase Crossover Networks
The proprietary crossover network design ensures that the speaker drivers are both acoustically and electronically in phase. This is especially important when a sound moves from left-to-center-to-right and vice versa. The transition is heard as a smooth flow from one speaker to the next, creating a large, well-defined soundstage with precise imaging and increased depth of field.
VDT drivers are injection molded polypropylene cones, augmented with a vapor deposited titanium. They are extremely light, resulting in quick movement and excursion, while also being incredibly dense. This eliminates diffraction in and out of the speaker cabinet that would otherwise make a muddy audible signal.
