The X-Voce center channel.
« on: 28 Mar 2018, 09:22 pm »
I have been moving a lot of product lately from our old location to our new location. And man we have a lot of X-Voce crossovers in stock.

The X-Voce is a great center channel speaker. It combines a high level of transparency, with high sensitivity, high dynamics, and with an easy to drive load. Plus, the quality level of the drivers are excellent. It is one of the best center channel speakers out there. And the basic kit is marked at only $189. The drivers alone sell for $169.70. By the time I throw in the binding posts cup, wire, solder, heat shrink, and screws the total is already at $189. So the crossover is essentially included for free.



Add some X-Statik's up front and you have an excellent front three. And the X-Statik's are priced ridiculously low as well at just $379 a pair. 



And the frequency response on all of these are super smooth.

That is a hell of a deal, Danny. Still love my X-Voce CC. Not an exact match, but pretty good nonetheless.

I always planned to upgrade the crossover to match the Super V's a bit closer (or the LS6's. I keep switching what does HT & what does 2 channel  :oops:). Never got around to it. Someday....

They still sound very good - good enough in fact that I use it instead of my Theil MCS-1.

I remember back in the day, the Skiing Ninja had quite a few options. Sonicap Bypass, Better Coils, etc. Can't remember the specifics, but they got pretty expensive pretty quick. I remember going through his website one time and I added up all of the top of the line options, and it was roughly twice what I paid for the speaker itself.

Cap upgrades get you the furthest. Tube connectors instead of the stock binding posts take clarity up a level as well. They are actually real easy to tweak up. The crossover is easily accessed right behind the mids.

Man that’s a great deal.  :o
I bought some X series used for home theater for about 7 years ago. I will say this, there never has been, or ever will be, a better value in ultra high end home theater. Glad to see Danny still offering these kits especially at these prices. :thumb:

I can definitely vouch for the quality and sound of the X-Voce. I ordered one as well as the X-Statik's when they were first released. I'm sure I was in the first 50-100 people to order and receive these speakers. The X-Voce was and still is the absolute best sounding center channel speaker I have ever heard at any price point. Clear, dynamic, natural, effortless and BIG sounding. It places the action above it up on the screen where it belongs, not below it, and definitely not small, strained, boxed or cupped sounding like so many lesser CC speakers out there.

I'm still rocking the X-Statik, X-Voce and X-Omni speakers in my home theater along with a GR/Rythmik sealed servo sub on the left.  With an inexpensive Marantz receiver these provide a dynamic and spacious sound.  Highly recommended!
