High Back EMF
All XT-Series Cinema Ribbons share a specialized ribbon tweeter. At only 6 inches tall it boasts nearly 10 feet of ribbon material. Notice the faint lines in this picture? Each of those is a pass of the ribbon through the neodymium magnet's field. The numerous windings allow Cinema Ribbons to project an enormous soundstage while fitting in the palm of your hand. The golden sheen you see on the ribbon is from its coating of Kapton - a lightweight material that allows it to play at very high volume without overheating.
A unique property of the Cinema Ribbon is its narrow vertical dispersion. This greatly reduces unwanted ceiling and floor bounces, improving imaging and creating a more believable soundstage.
Cinema Ribbon Trio In-Wall - CRW-3
The success of the XT Series Cinema Ribbons has been the story of one of the fastest growing, most successful premium speaker lines ever. With remarkable output from surprisingly small cabinets, the Cinema Ribbons are emblematic of Sunfire's widely acclaimed design philosophy.
The CRW-3s bring the power and performance of the Cinema Ribbon line to in-wall installations. The CRW series features Left/Right and a Center Channel version built with the same technologies and craftsmanship as their highly successful CRS-3 on-wall siblings. Amenities such as fully sealed cabinets for improved bass response and sound isolation from adjacent rooms; our legendary High Back-emf drivers; a 6" high-output, high efficiency ribbon tweeter with 10' of Kapton® material; bi-amp capable with gold-plated spring terminal binding posts and much more.
Purpose-built for the demanding enthusiast, the XT Series CRW-3s are proof positive that "hidden high performance" need not be a contradiction.
