Two-Way Acoustic Suspension Center Channel Speaker

The NS-C444 center channel speaker has been designed specifically for home theater applications. The speaker uses an acoustic suspension design and incorporates dual 5" polymer-injected mica diaphragm cone woofers and a 1" aluminum dome tweeter. For improved imaging, the tweeter utilizes Yamaha's waveguide horn.

Waveguide Horn

Unlike most homes, movie theaters use sound absorbing materials on walls and ceilings. The result is that the sound reaching your ears is the sound wave produced by the speakers rather than reflected off the walls. Yamaha has created wave guides that greatly reduce reflected sound and increase the proportion of directly generated sound waves reaching your ears. The result is a clear and precise sense of sound direction and placement.

Magnetic Shielding

The speaker is magnetically shielded, so it can be placed on a TV or video monitor without degrading the picture via stray magnetic fields.

Elliptical Cabinet

The NS-C444 is enclosed in an elliptical form cabinet with a high-gloss black finish, which provides solid construction with minimal sound diffraction.

Cloth Grille

The design of the removable cloth grille provides an acoustically transparent protective cover for the drivers.

Yamaha NS-C444 Reviews

Good center channel, for the price, hard to beat.

It's a very nice center channel for smaller rooms that are not treated with sound deadeners. Not a a wow speaker, but it really does a great job with dialog, which is what it should do. It has a bit higher senstivity than some of it's similarly priced competitors, but it also runs at 6 ohms, which most of them don't, so it kinda compensates for that. I'll say this of the whole NS lineup (the current ones that look like these) they're for home theater. They're not super musical. Great for home theater, adequate for music. Which is why i knock off a star, but honestly, music should be listened to in stereo, and i use a separate speaker set for that. For what i use it for, i'm very happy with the money spent on it. Have had a refurbished one for about 3 years now, with 0 issues. Also might be nice if it could go down a little deeper, but i have a sub for that reason also, however my other speakers do get a little bit lower, which means i miss out on that with my current AVR as it only has one crossover point, not individual per channel. I tend to just let this not play that great at 50hz and crossover at 50, where my other speakers start to roll off and don't really notice the fact it's rolling off a little earlier.

Not bad
