The mini c's acoustic design includes twin 4-inch woofers with a clay/ceramic compounded polypropylene cone and rubber surround, a 1-inch titanium dome tweeter with Ferrofluid and Neodymium magnet. Unique to the mini, in addition to the main ceramic magnet structure on the woofer, the Turbo-Magnet is another powerful neodymium magnet resting on top of the pole piece. The three drivers are placed in a horizontal layout with a rear port bass reflex.
The mini c crosses the tweeter at 2.2 kHz, allowing the drivers to be placed closer together than usual, minimizing interference between them and providing lifelike detail for the all-important dialog channel. Keeping the crossover frequency very low, relative to the woofer size, means listeners hear the same sound no matter where in the listening area they may be sitting.
Imagine mini c employs an elegant cabinet design in five designer finishes that has become the distinct hallmark of all Imagine Series speakers. Weighing just under 10 lbs., and measuring a mere 14" X 6" X 8 ½", mini c is easy to place.
Imagine mini c will be shipping in November with an MSRP of $700 each in real wood veneers of Dark Cherry, Walnut or Black Ash and $770 each in High Gloss White or Black.
