SKU FG01624 Categories , Brand:

The Niles Audio DS8FX 8-inch Surround Effects In-Ceiling / In-Wall Speakers were designed for 5.1 and 7.1 channel home theater systems for the rear and side channels – or for multi-channel audio systems. The Directed Soundfield (DS) woofer pivot mechanism enables the speaker to direct the sound to optimum the listening area. The 8-inch IMPACT (IMProved Aluminum Ceramic Technology) woofer cone provides a natural, flat response and moves any ringing frequencies to an inaudible range. Each 1-inch nano-coated IMPACT dome tweeter utilizes a vapor deposited coating for ultra-detailed high frequencies and pivots independently of the woofer to provide additional control of the sound. The tweeters are positioned on a different axis, and at opposing angles, to provide ultra-realistic surround sound effects and pivot independently of the woofer to provide additional control of the sound, offering an ultra-wide dispersion and smooth high frequency response. The speakers also feature a Diffuse / Direct switch to create spacious surround sound that optimally envelopes the listener. Use the Diffuse setting for movies and general music listening since most films are mixed using non-localized surround effects and music is usually recorded in a favorable acoustic environment. Use the Direct setting for discrete multi-channel recordings that equally emphasize front and surround sounds. For 7.1-channel surround sound systems, use the Diffuse setting on the side effects loudspeakers and the Direct setting for the rear effects loudspeakers. To complete a 5.1 or 7.1 channel surround sound system, the DS8FX is designed for use with Niles DS8HD or, DS8PR left, center, right channel speakers.
