Sunfire XT-Series Loudspeakers

We checked out Sunfire Speakers at CES to see their debut of the new Cinema Ribbon Trio line, compact on-wall loudspeakers that "defy the laws of physics."

The two new Cinema Ribbon loudspeakers follow the debut of Sunfire's Cinema Ribbon Duos (CRM-2 and CRM-2C) launched at CEDIA 2006. All are part of Sunfire's XT-Series, a collection of the Sunfire's finest products. The CRS-3 ($1000 each MSRP) is intended for use as left and right channels while the CRS-3C ($1250 each MSRP) is designed for center channel applications. Both models will be shipping in March, 2007.

Low frequencies are handled by three 4.5" High Back-emf woofers (four on the CRM-2C) that are based on Sunfire's subwoofers. The CRS-3 handles up to 450 watts of power. The CRS-3 boasts a sensitivity rating of 90dB and a nominal impedance of 6 ohms. The CRS-3C center channel speaker utilizes the same 4.5" High Back-emf drivers in a 2-½ way "tapered array" and 6" ribbon as the CRS-3.

The CRS-3 and CRS-3C are both finished in hand-rubbed ebonized rosewood. Both models also feature a boundary compensation switch that allows the user to tailor the sound for the specific room or placement.

Three 4.5" high back-emf drivers for astonishing bass (four on the CRM-3C)
