The black Infinity Reference 2.5-Way Center Channel Speaker is designed for use in multi-channel audio systems. This center channel speaker has a 2.5-way design that incorporates a 1" CMMD tweeter with waveguide and dual 5.25" woofers. With a recommended power handling of 20 - 150W and frequency response of 58 Hz to 22 kHz, the RC252 is compatible with a wide range of power amplifiers and music types. To help the speaker remain in place, four rubber cushions are included.

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 woofers. This speaker design is engineered to provide optimized high-frequency detail and smooth coverage across a wide listening area.
Dual 5.25" CMMD High-Output Woofer with Sealed Enclosure
This CMMD woofers works in conjunction with the sealed enclosure to provide powerful deep bass for an 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 Enclosure
For more natural sound reproduction, internal bracing is used to reduce cabinet vibration and minimize unwanted background noise.
CMMD
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

    Infinity RC252 reviews

    Reference RC252 2.5-Way Center Channel Speaker (Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent center channel speaker I use it as a center speaker of Infinity surround sound system driven by Onkyo NR636 receiver. I needed something to better get voices from movies and this center speaker delivers. It goes down to about 50 Hz so you get a decent amount of low frequency sounds from it too, which makes for a more realistic action experience. Overall highly recommended, very happy with my home theater setup.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent choice! I used the Reference center speaker to replace an old infinity TSS750 speaker. It is run by an ONKYO NR636 receiver, which seems to have plenty of power to push good volume out of it. I wanted more sound fidelity, good clarity and better sound overall. This speaker has a great sound across movies, classical and contemporary music of different kinds; very pleased with the performance. The sound stage with this significantly larger speaker is beyond my imagination, as I can hear it clearly from far away and off angle, and that is without extra high volume. It does not matter where you are in the room, you will hear it well. The speaker also looks better with its wood surface, well done. The only shortcoming is the size; I did measurements and it still looks much larger than I anticipated. Now my TV looks small.. Overall very pleased with the purchase, highly recommended.
