The Mordaunt-Short Avant Premiere system is a complete Home Cinema loudspeaker package offering four compact satellites that are timbre-matched with a woofer/tweeter/woofer configured centre speaker and a powerful 150 Watt unit subwoofer with high performance 25cm aluminum CPC driver.
The Premiere woofers now feature re-profiled surrounds and dishes. This development has lead to an increase in circumferential rigidity and reduces cone break-up to provide lower distortion and improved dynamics. The cones are made of seamless aluminum and feature a sub-cone which improves coil to dish coupling. Tweeters benefit from special liquid cooling for maximum heat dissipation.
MSRP for the entire package is $1599.
