ATC has announced two new centre channel speakers for multi-channel system installations. The C1C and C3C (pictured above), are voiced to match the brand’s SCM7 and SCM11 stereo monitors. The centres are hand-finished in either real cherry-wood or black ash veneers.

Both feature ATC’s own SH25-76 dual-suspension tweeter, placed between two mid-bass drivers identical in design to those employed by their partnering L/R speaker. The CIC employs the same 125mm ATC mid/bass driver found in the SCM7. The C3C  boasts the SCM11’s CLD 150mm mid-bass driver. On the latter, Constrained Layer Damping manages harmonic distortion between 300Hz and 3 kHz, offers an extended frequency response and promises improved off-axis performance.

Both the C1C and C3C incorporate new crossovers developed from the SCM7 and SCM11, involving metallised polypropylene capacitors, large air cored inductors and ceramic wire-round resistors. ATC suggests they are an easy load for amplifiers between 75 and 300 watts.
