Wide-Dispersion Super Tweeter
The super tweeter in the SS-CS5 is designed to deliver a high-frequency audio response of up to 50 kHz for high-resolution listening with wide directionality.
Tweeter Design
Each SS-CS5 features a tweeter with high sound pressure, achieved through a variety of weight reduction techniques, including the integration of a powerful magnetic circuit and a light CCAW (copper-clad aluminum wire) in the voice coil.
Mica-Reinforced Drivers
The SS-CS5 incorporates a 5" woofer in an effort to deliver deep and stable bass reproduction. Utilizing a foamed mica-cellular diaphragm, it is designed to produce powerful sound with fine sonic details.
Bass Reflex Design
The bass reflex duct, positioned at the rear of each speaker, is designed to suppress unwanted noise and improve low-frequency sound reproduction.
Additional Features
  • Air-core inductors in the tweeters, a silicon steel plate in the woofer, and high quality film condensers
  • Wood speaker design with removable speaker grille
  • Tapered faceplate edges
  • Screw type speaker terminals

question

Will these speakers pair nicely with my NuForce DDA-120 that has a power output of 50 / 75 Watts at 4 & 8ohm. Thanks.
Asked by: Chris L.
They should work quite well with the NuForce DDA-120 in a small to medium sized space under 20' x 20' with a 10' ceiling.

question

I want to pair these speakers with my NuForce DDA-120 integrated amp which can output 50 Watts / 75 Watts at 4ohm and 8ohm. Will they becwork correctly?
Asked by: Anonymous
The speakers are very sensitive and the wattage will be satisfactory. However, the impedance is a problem, and there is no agreed upon rule. We cannot advise you to use 6 ohm speakers with an amp that only operates on 4 or 8 ohms.

I'm using them in Sydney, Australia. I think we're 220 or 240 volts. They punch above their weight IMO.

How do I make these work with an Audio-Technica turntable?
Asked by: L Nicole
Hi L Nicole, thank you for your inquiry. Are you referring to a turntable? If yes, these speakers can be directly connected to your Audio technica turntable if it has a built-in preamp. If it doesn't have an built-on pre amp, please connect the speakers to the speaker output terminals of an amplifier using the speaker cords (not supplied) then connect the amplifier to your turntable. For further assistance, please contact our product support team through this link: https://us.esupport.sony.com/support/s/service?language=en_US. Hope this helps! -Sam
