THX-certified surround performance

The System 20 SR is called a surround speaker because that's what it does - it surrounds you with the environmental sounds of the scene taking place on the screen. No matter whether in Dolby Surround®, Dolby Digital®, DTS®, or any other format, the surround speakers are most often there to deliver non-localizable environmental sonic cues.

The horizontally mounted System 20e SR offers a unique combination of benefits. It delivers true Dipole surround performance, and yet, thanks to it minimum footprint design, fits easily into a standard 2 x 4 studded wall! Each System 20e SR consists of two sets of matched drivers ­ in essence it is two speaker systems. In Dipole mode these two systems operate "out of phase" with each other. The speaker's sound radiation pattern is similar to an infinity symbol, sweeping along the wall to each side. There's a distinct null or "dead zone" centered directly in front of the speaker which is in turn centered on the seating area. When properly placed and balanced, this creates a large, diffuse, non-localizable, and enveloping sound field that draws you into the action. Should you have an installation in which Dipole operation might be less than optimal, the speaker can easily be switched to Bipole operation.
