Next Level Acoustics – Reference Cinema Speakers

Reference Cinema Speakers

The Reference Cinema in-wall / on-wall speakers feature a uniquely compact high-output design, delivering reference level surround sound dynamics to medium and large size rooms.

The proprietary high transfer crossover optimizes three premium drive units consisting of a single 4×4 compression horn flanked by dual 8” carbon wool composite bass midrange drivers (quad drivers Pro model).

Simply put, the Cinema Series line of speakers produce a uniform sound intensity with superior intelligibility, silky smooth multi-axis response, and a wide (60-degree) listening window from the seated position.

With a reference sensitivity of 96dB, the easy-to-drive reactive impedance optimizes its use with mid to high-end receivers and/or amplifiers. This unit comes fully back boxed, made of MDF, to ensure that whatever is in your wall has zero effect on its performance.

The Cinema Series is the ultimate solution for delivering high-impact cinematic sound in an ultra-streamlined form factor. Choose from a wide variety of standard and custom finishes, grille fabrics, and formats.
