Chrono 509 DC Floorstanding Speaker
The Chrono 509 DC is a three-way bass reflex floorstanding model with an extremely broad and linear frequency response, making it ideal for use either as full-range speakers in a dedicated stereo system or as front speakers for home theater. It uses two 7-inch aluminum cone woofers for bass and a third 7-inch cone for midrange duties. It also features Canton's exclusive DC technology for extended linear bass response, and has a suggested retail price of $2000 per pair.
Chrono 507 DC Floorstanding Speaker
The Chrono 507 DC is a floorstanding speaker with an advanced 2-1/2-way crossover network. It features two 7-inch aluminum woofers that are both used for reproduction of deep bass frequencies (below 300Hz), while only the top driver is used for midrange duties. This gives the speaker an effective woofer area equivalent to a single 10-inch driver, but avoids the adverse interactions that can occur when dual drivers are used in upper bass and midrange frequencies. It functions extremely well as a stereo pair or as the front left/right pair in a medium sized theater room. It also features Canton's exclusive DC technology for extended linear bass response, and has a suggested retail price of $1,600 per pair.
Chrono 505 Center
This bass reflex compact loudspeaker features two 6-inch aluminum cone drivers flanking a single tweeter in a horizontal arrangement. It employs Canton's 2-1/2-way crossover circuit to prevent the poor dispersion characteristics that plague most horizontal dual woofer center speakers, and is magnetically shielded for use as the center channel in a home theater system. It has a suggested retail price of $650 each.
Chrono 502 Compact Speaker
The compact two-way Chrono 502 is a bass reflex speaker designed to be equally at home on a shelf or in conjunction with the optional Canton LS 600 or LS650 stand. It features a single 7-inch aluminum cone for bass reproduction, and the same 1-inch aluminum manganese cone tweeter used throughout the line. It has a suggested retail price of $1,000 per pair.
Chrono AS 525 SC Powered Subwoofer
The Chrono AS 525 SC subwoofer features a 9-inch high excursion aluminum cone driver in a precisely tuned bass reflex cabinet. It includes a powerful 150-watt internal amplifier module, and is an ideal match to the Chrono full range loudspeakers both tonally and aesthetically. It has a suggested retail price of $600 each.
