PRODUCT TRENDS Major Advances in Home Cinema Systems New Energy 5.1 home theater system designed to sound as good as it looks Pushing Energy’s 30-year legacy in acoustic research and development ever forward, the new Take Classic home theater system fuses elegant style, compact dimensions and immense sound. Standing less than 7-inches high and weighing less than 3 pounds, each magneticallyshielded satellite is a bass-reflex design with a rearfiring port. All of these speakers utilize a Convergent Source Module with a 3-inch poly-titanium woofer and a 3/4-inch Hyperbolic aluminumdome tweeter for a dynamic frequency range and expansive soundstage. The 1.4 kg magnetically-shielded center channel has all the same features and technologies as the satellites, except for the fact it employs dual front-firing ports. Completing the system’s bottom-end performance is a hard-hitting compact subwoofer which employs an 8-inch MPP woofer with a patented Ribbed Elliptical Surround coupled to an efficient 200-watt amplifier. This proprietary design eliminates surround distortion, enabling the subwoofer to play lower with greater output and fidelity.
