Default Outlaw Audio Introduces Dual-Mode Speakers - Vertical or Horizontal

Outlaw Audio has introduced the Outlaw LCR, a remarkably flexible home theater loudspeaker that is the first to include the company's exclusive MCO (Main/Center Optimization) selectable crossover technology. This allows the speaker's acoustic radiation pattern to be optimized for use as either a left or right front speaker or as a horizontal center channel speaker simply by flipping the MCO switch. The LCR is the second model in the company's recently introduced loudspeaker series, following the highly regarded Outlaw Bookshelf Loudspeaker (BLS) introduced earlier this year.

Designed and hand-built in the USA to audiophile-grade performance standards, the Outlaw LCR features the same long-throw 5-1/4" SEAS woofers and custom designed 1-inch ferrofluid-cooled soft-dome tweeter used in the acclaimed BLS bookshelf loudspeaker. The LCR features two of the cone woofers flanking a single tweeter, giving it improved bass performance and enabling the flexible crossover circuitry that makes it such a unique offering for home theater and music reproduction.

The Outlaw LCR is the first speaker to feature the company's exclusive MCO crossover technology, which enables users to select between two crossover configurations to optimize the speaker's output for either center channel (horizontal) or main channel (vertical) placement. When used with the MCO selector set to Main, the speaker employs a standard 2-way crossover, giving it the performance benefits of a D'Appolito array main speaker.

When the MCO is selected to 'Center', the crossover is configured as a 2-1/2-way network, where both woofers are used for deep bass output, but only one carries the midrange frequencies. This arrangement has the increased bass output benefit of a dual-woofer design, but avoids the adverse lobing issues that result from dual horizontal midrange drivers. Additionally, when the speaker is positioned vertically, but above the listener's head, the MCO switch can be set to the center position, making use of the lobing effects of the 2-1/2-way design as an electronic 'tilt', effectively aiming the midrange output 15-degrees downward, toward the listening position.

The Outlaw LCR features audiophile-grade crossover components, including 100% film capacitors, high-end drivers and a low resonance MDF cabinet that includes brackets for either vertical or horizontal mounting. In order to assure complete sonic compatibility, each loudspeaker will be tested and matched to within 1⁄2 dB of Outlaw's reference standard. This ensures that speakers, even if bought at different times, will be optimally matched to one another for excellent performance. Each Outlaw LCR employs two pairs of sturdy five-way binding posts, and is fully compatible with bi-wire or bi-amplification applications.

A high-frequency adjustment switch allows the tweeter output to be boosted or lowered by 2 dB to compensate for acoustically 'live' or 'dead' rooms. Finally, each loudspeaker employs a proprietary three-position Boundary Compensation switch to tailor output for placement near walls, corners, or in open air.

The Outlaw LCR's furniture-grade cabinet is constructed of low-resonance MDF with hand-painted black finish or optional book-matched cherry veneer, and includes a perforated metal grille. It is currently available exclusively through the Outlaw's website at www.outlawaudio.com. at a retail price of $649 each for black finish, or $699 each for cherry veneer.
