Outlaw Audio, probably better known for their affordable amplifiers, AV preamps and killer subwoofers, has gotten into the speaker game as of late. Their latest addition, the LCR reviewed here, continues Outlaw's commitment to affordable excellence. Retailing for $649 each and sold direct to the consumer via their website, the Outlaw LCR loudspeakers straddle the line between satellite subwoofer systems and bookshelf/monitor speakers in a way that may seem a bit crazy ... crazy like a fox.

The LCR is a two-way three-driver loudspeaker, featuring two long-throw five-and-a-quarter-inch bass/midrange drivers flanking a single one-inch silk dome tweeter. The entire package is wrapped in either a black or cherry wood finish and has a sealed, wall-mountable bi-wired or bi-amped design. The LCR features rear-mounted controls, which include a three-position Boundary Compensation switch to aid in wall and/or corner placement, as well as a three-position high-frequency switch to help with dampened or live rooms, followed by a two-position speaker performance switch that lets the LCR know if it's being used as a center or main channel speaker. Because of all of these controls, and because the LCR is truly designed to be either a main/surround or center channel speaker, the total cost of a matched five-speaker surround system comes in around $3,200, give or take any specials Outlaw is offering at the time, plus shipping. Not bad when you consider we live in a world where decent monitor speakers will run you upwards of $2,000 a pair. The LCRs also come standard with brackets needed to wall-mount them out of the box in a horizontal or vertical position around, say, a plasma or LCD monitor.

The LCR has a reported frequency response of 75 to 22kHz and carries with it a sensitivity of 90dB with a nominal impedance of four ohms, making the LCR ideal for a receiver-based or budget separates home theater.
