800 Series Diamond

HTM2 Diamond

The HTM2 Diamond is the perfect centre channel speaker for home theatre systems featuring the larger floorstanding models in the 800 Series Diamond.

HTM2 Diamond

If you’re looking for a centre-channel dialogue speaker to use as part of an 800 Series Diamond home theatre set-up, the HTM2 Diamond provides all the clarity and richness you need for larger viewing spaces. That’s down to a three-way design featuring two dedicated bass drivers – and, of course, a diamond dome tweeter.

The HTM2 Diamond is more than capable of holding its own in the largest home theatre set-ups, and the biggest viewing areas. While the  tweeter and midrange keeps voices and music crystal clear, balanced and well-defined,  heavyweight back-up is provided by two 7" Rohacell® bass drivers.

The centre channel performs a vital role in a home theatre set-up, balancing the sound and reproducing speech and dialogue. What’s required above all is definition and clarity at high frequencies and the midrange - tasks that the HTM2 Diamond will handle with ease, thanks to its diamond dome tweeter and Kevlar® FST™ midrange.
