Aerial Acoustics’ CC5 center channel speaker is the heavyweight equivalent in boxing. Weighing close to 100lbs amd measuring 28″ by 10″ by 22″, it is also a massive speaker to boot. Moving this speaker around is no joke. But once firmly in place, the CC5 will whip all other sub-$1,500 center channel speaker to pieces. The CC5 is a very power hungry speaker. It demands at least 100W or more, with more being the preferred choice, where it will then blow through your home theater experience with crackling bass, rich mids and finely honed highs. The CC5 is a four driver, three way speaker. There is a 1″ titanium tweeter, one 6″ mid-woofer and two 9″ bass woofers. Nominal impedance is 4 ohms with a sensitivity of 86dB. Frequency range is 40Hz to 22KHz. There are two controls on the rear where you can adjust its treble and the “environment”, which is its placement fixture – stand, shelf or in-wall and it “blends” in accordingly.
Cosmetically, there are the usual scuff marks from use but nothing major. The speaker had a fresh coat of paint previously but some spots are starting to wear so it may need a refresher. Otherwise, speaker looks good and is ready to rock someone’s home theater room. Due to the size and weight, our recommended shipping mode is freight but we could pack it up to have it go ground. Local pickup is welcomed.
