Here is a classy, made in Germany center channel speaker at a very affordable price. The GLE 455 features two 6″ aluminum woofers and one 1″ dome tweeter. Frequency response is from 33Hz – 30KHz with a nominal impedance of between 4-8 ohms. Sensitivity is 89dB. The GLE 455 is the center channel speaker for the GLE series of speakers which comprised of a floor standing L and R speakers, surround speakers and an active subwoofer. Collectively, they were a $3,200 package which was actually, a lot of speaker and sound for the money.
The GLE 455 was easy to drive and had a very responsive sound that kept very good pace with the movie soundtrack. Bass was tight and fast and the mids were very precise. Dialogue through the GLE 455 was quite realistic and had a wide scale that matched our 55″ TV screen perfectly. Speaker is magnetically shielded so it can be placed right under the TV without affecting the TV.
Cosmetically, the unit is in very good shape. A very tiny ding on the rear corner and just minor scuff marks elsewhere. We don’t have the original box but will securely pack this for safe shipping.
