The BasX LCR is a two-way speaker, featuring a ferrofluid cooled 1-inch silk dome tweeter, a pair of matched long throw 4-inch mid/bass drivers with mineral filled polypropylene cones and rubber surrounds, and dual rear-firing tuning ports. The BasX LCR may be used vertically as a left or right main or surround speaker, or horizontally as the center channel speaker in a surround sound system.
The Emotiva BasX series of loudspeakers leverage many of the advanced design features and technologies we developed for our high-end models to deliver both excellent technical performance and superb sound quality in a compact form factor. We believe that, if a speaker can reproduce the entire audible spectrum, as accurately as possible, with very little distortion or coloration, then it will sound good – whether you’re playing classical music, heavy metal, or the soundtrack of your favorite blockbuster movie. When paired with a high-quality amplifier or receiver, and a subwoofer, the BasX speakers will deliver clean, well-balanced sound with very low distortion and excellent sound stage imaging. However, by exercising exceptional care in the design process, we’ve managed to add another feature that’s important to many audiophiles: economy. In short, our BasX speaker deliver excellent sound quality and extraordinary value at an unbeatable low price.
Quality Starts With Quality Components
The BasX LCR and BasX SAT share many similar features, including the same advanced 1” coated silk fabric dome tweeter, 4” midrange/bass driver, and precision crossover. The faceted Minimum Acoustic Signature cabinet minimizes room interactions and diffraction effects, while the textured vinyl exterior coating is extremely durable, and fits in well with most room décor. The fully finished front bezels and removable fabric grill cloths give you the option of showing off your BasX technology or choosing a more discrete look. The Emotiva BasX Loudspeakers prove that great sound and high quality don’t have to be expensive.
