TwoC Center Channel Speaker
Classic Series
OK, you’ve decided on NHT’s Classic speakers for your new home theater. Even more
exciting is the fact that you’re going to place four of them around you along with a subwoofer and several hundred watts of power. Only one thing missing - the perfect center
channel speaker. Enter the formidble and capable NHT Classic TwoC. The TwoC uses 3 of
NHT’s best technologies - acoustic suspension, 3-way and all aluminum drivers technology combined with NHT value pricing and stunning looks to make it the best choice for
Classic models Absolute Zero Two and Absolute Tower. It is the more compact choice for
the Classic Three and Four and out most popular model for turning vintage NHT stereo
speaker into amazing home theaters.
3-way designs are espically important to center speakers because their dispersion is very wide in both the horizontal and
vertical planes. This means consistent tonality and good detail
anywhere the viewer is seated. In addition to traditional center channel use, the ThreeC can be used as a left/center/right
(LCR) speaker when a low profile solution is needed.
Acoustic Suspension: Like most NHT speakers the Classic
TwoC is an acoustic suspension design - no ports or holes in the cabinet. We use the air
(natures most perfect spring) that is trapped in the cabinet to control and damp the
woofer cone motion. Acoustic suspension system require not only specific design expertise but also tighter parts and materials tolerances. The benefits are well documented
- smooth, natural midrange, low distortion, high power handling and smooth bass rolloff
- an important benefit when blending speakers with subwoofers seamlessly.
Three-Way: Dual-woofer-three-way that is. Most center speakers are 2-way designs
(woofer-tweeter-woofer). The ThreeC uses two custom designed 6.5”, very long throw
anodized aluminum cone woofers that are housed in NHT designed BMC (Bulk Moulding
Compound) frames that offers very low resonance. The these killer woofers flank NHT’s
proprietary Tweeter/Midrange module that sports a 3/4” tweeter and 2” dome midrange
- both with anodized aluminum diaphragms. This compact array keeps all of the drivers
in close proximity to each other improving phase (multi-driver timing) coherence. Using
4 drivers also reduces distortion and allows the woofer to concentrate on bass reproduction.
The Cabinet: Like the awesome ThreeC, the TwoC’s cabinet
is made with a CNC-milled 21mm MDF front baffle and 15mm
MDF for the sides and extensive internal bracing for rigidity and
resonance control. The cabinet’s curved side panels help to
randomize internal standing waves and the hand-rubbed, high
gloss piano-black finish lend a sense of timelessness to its visual
aspect. Classic TwoCs are sold and packaged individually.
Mounting: Classic TwoC comes with dual aluminum rails with bytyl rubber inserts preinstalled which offers an acoustically optimal shelf placement solution without the needs
for additional feet, cones or other isolation devices. If needed, the ThreeC can be
floated on shelf mounts like the Pinpoint’s AM15. Simply space mounts sp the ThreeC
lands on its feet!
Adding a Subwoofer: Adding a NHT Classic subwoofer to your surround system will
extend the bass, further reduce distortions, and improve dynamics. We recommend the
exciting Classic B-10d as the usual companion for the TwoC followed by the Classic B-12d
if scary is on your list of features.
Mixing and Matching: Fortunately, all NHT speakers are designed and voiced with the same set of parameters and design
goals which allows you the freedom to use any past or present NHT speakers to build your home theater system with
great results. That said, for state-of-the-art results we’ll recommend mating the Classic TwoC as the step-up center
channel choice for AbsoluteZero’s, Two’s and Absolute Towers. It’s a good fit the NHT Three’s and Fours if you’re looking
for the lowest cost match or a smaller form factor. As previously mentioned. it is the #1 choice for vintage NHT’s like VT2, 2.5, 2.9, SB-3 and ST-4 towers. The TwoC’s can also be used as the left/center/right/ (LCR) channel with spectatular
results if you need a low profile solution. NHT also manufactures matching iW4 in-wall and iC3 or 4 in-ceiling speakers
when more discrete or invisible installation solution is required.
