McIntosh Loudspeaker Engineers designed the new McIntosh XLS speaker
family for maximum flexibility and system scalability. The concept and “Voice”
of the XLS series begins with the XLS320 bookshelf speaker, a very compact
speaker with outstanding acoustical output. The XLS320 employs a second
generation five tweeter Bessel Array for uncompressed, high power reproduction of high frequencies with both delicacy and natural detail. The five
tweeter array is combined with a precision 6.5" woofer/midrange driver then
connected to a precision crossover network, all of which are mounted in a
compact extruded aluminum enclosure. This aluminum enclosure is strong,
light, and antiresonant which allows the XLS320 to be both small and have
the internal volume necessary for proper bass tone.
The larger XLS340, XCS350 and XLS360 models contain the same midrange
and tweeter components of the XLS320 so they all speak with a common
“Voice”. These XLS speakers add larger woofers with increased cabinet volume
for additional bass extension and power handling capability. Completing the
XLS family is the XLS112 a 400 watt internally amplified subwoofer.
Most XLS Series models can be positioned on the floor, a shelf or
mounted on-wall or in-wall with the addition of an in-wall kit. Adding
to the XLS’s versatility is a rear panel “imaging jumper” that selects
left, center, or right placement for proper mirror imaging.
Five Tweeters configured in
a Bessel Array are used for
additional high frequency
power handling and clarity.
XLS common “Voice” design
assures compatibility
between models.
Rear panel position adjustments
allow for perfect imaging
in any position.
Light, thin and strong extruded
aluminum cabinets allow for a
shallow design with extreme clarity.

SPEAKING WITH
A COMMON VOICE
Any combination of XLS
speakers can be used in
any location with a
common result;
realistic sound
image throughout
the listening room.
Even the most challenging
rooms have a McIntosh
XLS speaker solution that
will yield beautiful sound.
In-wall, bookshelf and
floor-standing models may
be combined to match
any room construction
and deliver a musical and
unified audio presentation.
XLS ON-WALL INSTALLATION
If you prefer your speakers
off the floor and on a wall,
the XLS320, XLS340 and the
XCS350 include on-wall
mounting brackets. Shown
here is the XLS340 mounted
on a wall.
XLS360 3-WAY LOUDSPEAKER
The full size, floor standing
XLS360 is designed for free
standing use and floor
stands are included.
Dual 10" woofers with
enormous magnet
structures provide
prodigious bass.
XLS320 2-WAY LOUDSPEAKER
The XLS series begins with the XLS320, a compact
speaker that can be placed on a bookshelf, on a
stand, or mounted on a wall. With a depth of only
3-3/4" the XLS320 can be installed in a wall as well.
This optional in-wall mounting kit
includes a mesh metal cover paintable
to match wall color and room décor.
XLS340 AND XCS350 2-WAY LOUDSPEAKER
The XLS340 and the XCS350 contain the exact same
“VOICE” as the XLS320 with the addition of two 8"
woofers for expanded bass reproduction. The XLS340
floor standing or in-wall speaker may be combined with
the XCS350 as a matching center channel. Like the
XLS320, the XLS340 and XCS350 share the same
shallow 3-3/4" depth and placement options and are as
versatile as your imagination. The XCS350 may be used
vertically or horizontally with equally satisfying results.
XLS112 POWERED SUBWOOFER
The XLS112 Powered Subwoofer
is compact yet powerful, housing
a McIntosh 400 Watt amplifier.
The 12" woofer provides effortless,
deep bass extension.
Available in natural cherry,
red cherry, black ash or
brushed champagne
side trim. Handcrafted
with pride at the
McIntosh facility in
Binghamton, NY, USA.
REAR PANEL
IMAGING JUMPER
The XLS Series of
loudspeakers have a
rear panel jumper switch
that allows the choice
of left, center or right
speaker placement
for proper imaging.
XLS IN-WALL INSTALLATION
Install the XLS320, XLS340
or the XCS350 in a wall with
the optional in-wall installation
kit. The white metal grill is
paintable to match any wall
color and blend into the room’s
décor. Pictured are the XLS340’s.
XLS FINISHES
XLS speaker grills are black
acoustic fabric with side trim
options of brushed champagne,
red cherry, natural cherry and
black ash.

BESSEL FUNCTION TWEETER ARRAY
The five individual tweeters and their phase relationships
are adjusted so that the array acts as a high frequency
point source with a broad dispersion pattern. In addition,
the array greatly increases power handling for high
frequencies. The Bessel Array can be used in either
the vertical or horizontal position without compromising
sonic integrity.
UNIFIED “VOICING”
Combining the Bessel Tweeter Array with a new and
exceedingly precise crossover, McIntosh Loudspeaker
Engineers established a structure able to generate a
realistic sound image throughout the listening room.
This determines the “voice” or sound
character of the speaker
and is the foundation
of the family of
XLS loudspeakers.
PATENTED LD/HP TECHNOLOGY
McIntosh woofers and midranges feature the patented
LD/HP motor structure. This design utilizes aluminum
shorting rings at both ends of the pole piece to extend
and linearise the
magnetic field around
the voice coil. Distortion
is reduced by 10dB
or more. These rings
also increase voice
coil heat dissipation
and the power handling
Conventional
of the speaker.
