Infinity R253 overview

  • 1Description

The black Infinity Reference R253 3-Way Floor-Standing Speaker is designed to offer robust power handling. This floor-standing speaker has a 3-way design that incorporates a 1" CMMD tweeter with waveguide, a 5.25" CMMD low-diffraction midrange driver with dedicated sub-enclosure, and dual 5.25" woofers. With a recommended power handling of 20 - 200W, the Infinity R253 is compatible with a wide variety of amplifiers. For sturdy floor placement, this speaker includes 4 carpet spikes.

1" CMMD Tweeter with Advanced Waveguide
The combination of the acoustical engineering and design found in the 1" CMMD (Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm) tweeter and advanced waveguide is designed to provide seamless sonic integration with the CMMD woofer. This speaker design is engineered to provide optimized high-frequency detail and smooth coverage across a wide listening area.
5.25" CMMD Flat-Piston Midrange with Dedicated Sub-Enclosure
The flat-piston design reduces critical high- and mid-frequency diffraction. This helps to improve the integration with tweeter and woofers and provides balanced sound across the entire frequency range. The dedicated sub-enclosure prevents harmful interaction with the woofers inside the cabinet and allows the midrange to deliver clear sound quality.
Dual 5.25" CMMD High-Output Woofers with Tuned-Port Enclosure
These CMMD woofers work in conjunction with the tuned-port enclosure to provide powerful deep bass for enhanced listening experience, covering a wide frequency range.
Computer-Optimized Driver Positioning and Network Integration
Infinity's acoustical modeling design places the drivers in the ideal location within the cabinet allowing them to work with the enclosure and not against it. The positioning and crossover network integration reduce harmful sonic artifacts that would otherwise detract from the overall performance of the loudspeaker. The end result is designed to deliver balanced, accurate sound with lifelike imaging and soundstage.
Low Resonance Enclosures
For more natural sound reproduction, internal bracing is used to reduce cabinet vibration and minimize unwanted background noise.
CMMD (Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragms) sandwich an aluminum driver between ceramic layers for sound accuracy. Its ultra-rigidity design removes unwanted sonic coloration, while the light weight cone picks up subtle detail.
Additional Features
  • Black woodgrain finish with hidden fasteners
  • The waveguide, midrange, and woofers feature black chrome trim rings
  • Removable speaker grille with brushed trim
