The Infinity Beta C360 (Center Channel Speaker - available in black or cherry finish), is a three-way, four-driver closed design loudspeaker featuring dual 6.5" woofers, a 4" midrange, and a 1" dome tweeter with a size and weight as well as power handling capabilities well above most contemporary Center speakers of it's days (predominantly being of 2-way Bass-Reflex design). The C360 employs Infinity's patented Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm (CMMD) speaker driver technology, originally developed for Infinity's high-end Prelude MTS models. CMMD drivers are said to be stronger and lighter than conventional paper, plastic / polypropylene, or metal drivers. According to Infinity, their CMMD drivers produce lower levels of distortion for a more transparent and detailed sound. The tweeter is mounted in a special waveguide ensuring improved high-frequency dispersion throughout the listening room. Infinity engineers positioned the tweeter unusually close to the midrange driver, which close proximity further improves the speaker's sound quality and imaging precision.
