According to the company, the XCS200 excels as a left, right, or surround loudspeaker, so there's no limit to where you can place it. It's got a frequency response from 80Hz all the way up to 45kHz. They've got a custom aluminum enclosure crafted to resist standing waves and massive gold input connectors that allow for bi and tri amping.
McIntosh's XCS200 speakers have a pair of eight inch woofers behind a custom baffle housing, eight separate two inch midrange drivers and five 3/4-inch titanium dome tweeters.
"The creation of the XCS200 loudspeaker was a true labor of love," says McIntosh president Charlie Randall. " Our innovative multi-driver approach," he adds, "offers wide bandwidth and is phase-coherent within the audio band for an astoundingly lifelike and non-fatiguing sound." You'll be able to pick up an XCS200 speaker for an MSRP of $6,000 when they start shipping later this month.
