Loudspeakers for your home cinema

Home cinema should project the sound of movies realistically. For surround sound, 5.1 or more speakers are needed (refer to Basics to the right).

For the front 3 identical floorstanding would be ideal, but that doesn't work usually since the screen is in the way. Therefore, the centre speaker is placed horizontally (acoustically better would be a floorstanding speaker or even two of them, left and right of the screen).

The rear speakers are responsible for effects. Therefore, these speakers may sound slightly different than the front speakers.

Alcone by RCM

Alcone/Scan Speak Pascal XT Alcone (by RCM) stands for Aluminium Cone. These drivers are known for their rigid cones, and yet they show only a moderate resonance. The following combinations are something to look forward to:

Dirac XT Dirac XT Dirac XT Center Lagrange XT Sub 20
