Wharfedale Jade C1 Center-Channel Loudspeaker

Save $600 on the Gorgeous Wharfedale Jade C1 Center-Channel Loudspeaker: Curved Cabinets, Aperiodic Loading, and Acufiber Cones Produce Sonic Excellence and Fantastic Timing

The Wharfedale Jade C1 center-channel loudspeaker means you won't skimp on stellar performance from the only speaker in your surround-sound setup that doesn't get the benefit of working with a mate. And because of its incredibly discounted price, you won't have to pay big money to get what you deserve. Curved Crystalam cabinets, Acufiber cones, and aperiodic cabinet loading are a few of the technical and design-related reasons why Jade C1 far outperforms similarly priced models. Two five-inch bass drivers, three aluminum-composite midrange drivers, and a one-inch aluminum-dome tweeter act in symphony to provide clarity, crispness, detail, and incredible timing. Just how serious is Jade C1? The AV-shielded, three-way speaker weighs in at 29 pounds. To say it's ready to do some heavy lifting with your music and movies would be an understatement. 100% Music Direct Guaranteed.

Groundbreaking Engineering Leads to a Better Center-Channel Speaker

Restless innovators, Wharfedale introduces several technologically savvy implements in Jade C1. Using every available tool at its disposal, the company turned to computer-aided modeling and precision-based engineering in coming up with a perfectionist-minded design. The Jade C1 cone is comprised of Acufiber, which marries the responsiveness of glass and carbon fiber within a self-damping woven matrix, nullifies coloration and breaks up standing waves. A groundbreaking linear drive motor system, aperiodic cabinet loading, and Crystalam cabinets also contribute to the speaker's incredible efficiency and resonance-free sound.

Stellar Looks and a Money-Back Satisfaction Guarantee

Realizing that most music lovers want both gorgeous sound and looks, Wharfedale ensured Jade C1 possesses a stylish appearance that could warrant it an invite to a fashion show. This is a speaker you'll be proud to showcase in your home for many years to come. Its curved cabinets and svelte lines make the Jade 1 a head-turner that simultaneously blends into the surroundings. Factor in Music Direct's Money-Back Guarantee, and you've every reason to get Jade C1 into your surround system.

The Advantages of Aperiodic Cabinet Loading
Aperiodic simply in speaker terms, "without resonance." Both reflex loading and closed box speakers are normally full of resonance. One problem associated with this resonance is that the system continues to produces sound after the music has stopped. At its worst, the bass takes on a boomy quality, but even when controlled, this resonance can still blur the clarity of the low end, making instruments sound unnatural and indistinct. Aperiodic loading overcomes this problem while still allowing for the port to extend the low end of the speaker. It replaces the resonance of the reflex loaded cabinet with a much simpler solution where no resonance is encouraged and music is reproduced without unnatural ringing, "chuffing," or midrange leaks, resulting in accuracy and clarity that other cabinet designs just can't match.
