Smaller flat panels deserve big sound, too. The Take LCR tower’s compact size, coupled with serious performance, make them the perfect choice for small home theater systems. And, they’re sound matched to other Take Series speakers, so you can expand as your needs—and your screen size—grow.
- Beautiful black finish
- Deep bass from two 4.5-inch woofers bring the power of movie effects to life
- Clear, accurate highs from aluminum dome tweeter help you hear details you’ve never before noticed
- Wide placement options with horizontal, vertical mounting
Like all of the Take series speakers, the LCR is versatile—you can hang them horizontally or vertically to fit your room and the screen. No matter how you use them, you’ll be impressed by their pure, accurate sound, power and performance.
A 1-inch dome tweeter and two 3.5-inch woofers give you surprisingly massive movie, music and gaming sound. And, magnetic shielding ensures that you can place it as close to a standard CRT monitor as you like, without interference.
The Take LCR speaker brings Energy engineering principles to home theater sound:
- Flat On-Axis Frequency Response with Wide Bandwidth: Speakers should reproduce the entire audio range in a uniform manner. By ensuring that no one frequency dominates any other, Energy ensures that every note is the way it was intended to be—and the sound as natural as possible.
- Wide and Constant Dispersion: Sound at all frequencies radiating from the speaker should be in an even pattern, in all directions throughout the room.
- Low Distortion and Resonance: No speaker system is distortion- or resonance-free, but Energy has achieved a significantly lower distortion level, a clearly audible improvement.
The Take LCR 2-way bass reflex speaker offers terrific performance and great features:
- Ribbed Elliptical Surround woofers that create high efficiency, low distortion
- A chambered aluminum dome tweeter for sonic accuracy and durability
- Front venting extends bass
Featuring the same components as the rest of the Take Series, the Take LCR is voice matched to blend perfectly with any of its counterparts, making it excellent for use as the left, right or center channels of a home theater system or as part of a stereo system.
The twin woofer design with Ribbed Elliptical Surround allows the Take LCR to play loud, clean bass, making your movies come to life. The center-mounted 1-inch chambered aluminum dome tweeter delivers crisp high frequencies.
Maximum performance tips:
The center channel speaker needs to be centrally located so that the dialogue appears to be coming from the center of the screen. It needs to be above or below the monitor, as closely to it as possible. If you’re using a rear projection television, the most likely option is to place it above the screen. If you have a front projection system, you have choices—stand mounting, or placement on furniture, for example. It is important, though, to place the speaker so that its front edge is even with the edge of the shelf or stand supporting it. Unwanted diffraction occurs when the center channel is too far back into a cabinet or other surface with edges that could impede sound dispersion.
For left or right channels, the distance between the speakers should be 6-8 feet at minimum for the best stereo imaging. The optimum room shape is rectangular, with the speakers along one of the shorter walls, facing the opposite side.
