Definitive Technology Center/Left/Right Channel Speaker, Model CLR2300BK


Definitive's C/L/R and Center Channel Speakers
Complete Your Ultimate Home Theater

Definitive has always led the industry with the best-sounding shielded center channels available. Optimum surround sound home theater reproduction places heavy demands on the center channel speaker, which in many respects is the main speaker in the system and often handles 50% or more of the program material. It is no place to compromise and settle for second best. Because of this, Definitive pioneered the concept of full frequency range high-definition center-channel speakers. Definitive's center channels and C/L/Rs are consistently rated as the best available, and have won numerous Audio Video Grand Prix Center Channel of the Year Awards each and every year.

Our current offerings are the best ever, all featuring wide frequency response and extended dynamic range with extraordinary detail and articulation. (The C/L/Rs are also superb as matching center, left and right channel speakers and can be positioned horizontally or vertically.) All feature non-resonant monocoque cabinets with Linkwitz-Riley crossover networks, pure aluminum dome tweeters and die-cast-basket bass/midrange drivers in D'Appolito arrays.

All Definitive center channels and C/L/Rs are designed with the same rigid standards and high performance goals as our main left and right front speakers. They include state-of-the-art features like high-definition polymer coned cast-basket bass/midrange drivers with butyl rubber surrounds, wide dispersion pure aluminum dome tweeters with magnetic fluid cooling, complex Linkwitz-Riley crossover networks, solid non-resonant monocoque cabinets with diffractionless grill/baffle interfaces and effective magnetic shielding incorporating both metal shield and dual field canceling magnets. All center channels and C/L/Rs have been voiced (timbre-matched) with the same sonic signature as all of Definitive's front main speakers. They will also, because of their true full-range quality and linear response, often provide better performance and do a better job matching other companies' main speakers than their own. of course, as you move up in the Definitive line, the overall performance improves, especially in the areas of dynamic range, extended linear response, fullness and clarity. All are Dolby Digital AC-3* ready.


Revolutionary Power C/L/Rs with Built-in Powered Subwoofers
Make a Dramatic Audible Difference

The revolutionary new C/L/R 3000 features a powerful built-in powered subwoofer driven by our Infinite Power Source Technology amplifiers. The upward-firing long-throw woofer only requires 1" of clearance, so it works perfectly whether you open-mount your center channel or put it in a cabinet. Remember: The purpose of putting a subwoofer in the center channel, beyond putting more bass energy into the room, is really to add full range bass and sub-bass capability to the center channel itself. The difference this makes is absolutely audible and very dramatic. This gives you a truly full dynamic range capable/full frequency range capable center channel, which allows you to set the center channel setting on your Dolby Digital decoder to large and fully realize the performance potential of the full range center channel program material as it was intended to be reproduced by the director.


Using Three Matched C/L/Rs Across the Front

Because of their superb full-range response and quality of reproduction, the C/L/Rs may be used as matching left main, center, and right speakers when installation requirements dictate this type of system. They may be placed either horizontally or vertically. In fact, the C/L/Rs were designed with this very much in mind and offer truly incredible dynamic range, high-definition clarity, extended linear response, three-dimensional pinpoint imaging and overall performance which is truly state-of-the-art for music and home theater reproduction. Our C/L/R based home theater systems have won many honors including Sound & Vision's prestigious Critic's Choice Award. And a C/L/R based system using our Powered C/L/Rs with built-in subwoofers, either with or without a separate outboard subwoofer is absolutely stupendous and offers the absolute state-of-the-art performance for shelf, in cabinet, and custom built-in systems.

    Comments about Definitive Technology Center/Left/Right Single Channel Speaker:

    I was concerned about leaving the CLR 2300 speaker powered on while connected to the wall outlet. After calling Definitive Technology technical support, I learned the speaker will automatically power off to a standby state after 45 minutes. Upon receiving a signal, the speaker turns on automatically. (It operates like the HP Deskjet 722C printer I own). The center speaker, paired with my BP-10s, produces a more complete sound, especially noticeable when watching movies. I wished I purchased it at the time I bought my BP-10s.

      Comments about Definitive Technology Center/Left/Right Single Channel Speaker:

      If you are not sure about how much impact a center channel can make think again. Action movies come to life. crystal clear, nice highs & lows, and built in sub is bonus. easy to hook up & sound incedible out of the box. Better speakers DO make a difference, I know this now. Def Tech customer service is great too. A human actually picks up the phone and helps you choose a system without making you feel like a schmuck. What a nice change. Great speaker, would buy again.

      Thank you ABT. Great price & fast delivery.

          Comments about Definitive Technology Center/Left/Right Single Channel Speaker:

          Definitive makes the best home audio speakers for the price range they are in. I have had a few entry level systems like Sony, JBL, Pioneer. Spent some extra money on the Definitive and I am hooked for life. The CLR 2300 makes your home surround system take on a new life of sound. The 8" sub and the crisp clean a clear mids and highs really bring your center channel to the fore front. Watch King Kong with this center channel and sit back, he sounds like he is right in front of you. Highly recommend this speaker and all of Definitive Techs speakers.
