The CT8 LR midrange and high-frequency drivers are held in a super-rigid spherical pod that incorporates Nautilus-derived tube loading, cleverly curled-up for compactness. The pod orientation is even adjustable for perfect alignment with the listening area. The main enclosure housing the bass drivers is Matrix-braced to provide a solid system foundation, and plays accurate, dynamic bass down to 23Hz - well into sub
