THIEL PowerPoint 1.2 Surface Mount Ceiling or Wall Speaker
"The single most extraordinary--the best home theater product I have encountered...I have never encountered a product that so completely met a need as the PowerPoints meet the needs of high performance home-theater."
--Tom Miiller's review of the original Powerpoint,
The Perfect Vision, Issue 33, November/December 2000.
The second generation PowerPoint 1.2's cast aluminum cabinet significantly improves both clarity and dynamics.
The extraordinary surface-mount PowerPoint 1.2 (R) brings a new level of performance to a speaker category that usually compromises sonic performance for usability. Its Coherent Source (R) time and phase correct design and innovative shape delivers high performance sound when space or conventional placement is a problem.
The second generation 1.2 is built with a cast aluminum cabinet to offer significant sonic improvements in both clarity and dynamics. The new surface-mount PowerPoint 1.2 has also been reshaped with a new, sleek, rounded look.
Conventional in-wall and surface mount speakers' coverage area leave some users outside the optimum listening area. The surface mount PowerPoint 1.2 is designed to cover a very wide area, maximizing performance throughout the room and for a variety of listening positions. This advantage allows the user greater control over the sound coverage in their room enabling them to create the sound environment of their choice.
The PowerPoint's unique wedge shape offers particularly great advantages for ceiling applications. They can be used as front, center, or rear-channel speakers in home video and music systems. They can also be used alone or in pairs throughout the home in bedrooms, kitchens, and offices for outstanding sound everywhere.
The PowerPoint's monopole design also create a more realistic sound field for the listener by accurately reproducing the spatial information on the soundtrack, rather than the diffuse, inaccurate reproduction of bipole designs.
Extraordinarily uniform, full-room coverage due to unique, angled, close-boundary cabinet design and coaxial driver mounting.
- Extraordinary imaging, space and depth reproduction due to greatly diminished boundary reflections in combination with THIELÕs trademark phase and time coherence. Provides great realism for both music and movies
- Extraordinary clarity and detail provided by innovative, low distortion, state-of-the-art drivers and very high quality electrical components. Uses the same tweeter as our flagship model CS7.2.
- Extraordinary dynamics achieved by state-of-the-art drivers, high (89dB/2.8v-m) sensitivity, and extremely rigid cast aluminum cabinet.
- Extraordinarily faithful tonal balance achieved through advanced driver and crossover design. The 2-way driver system employs very low distortion, short coil, long-gap motor systems, very rigid aluminum diaphragms, and powerful magnets for superior reproduction.
