Snell Ships Two New THX Loudspeakers
Snell Acoustics announced last week that it is now shipping a pair of new THX Ultra 2 Certified loudspeakers, under the C7 brand name. The two speakers, the IC C7 In-Cabinet LCR and IW C7 In-Wall LCR, represent upgraded versions of the company’s XA 1900THX and AMC 2000THX.
Featuring the D’Appolito Array- named for the company’s engineer Joe D’Appolito- the speakers feature 1-inch SEAS silk-dome tweeters and two 8-inch copolymer cone woofers. The IW C7, which comes in a white finish, retails at an MSRP of $2,250 each; the IC C7, with a black painted finish, is offered at an MSRP of $1,750 each.
Snell, a part of the D&M Holdings family of companies, released the first THX speakers in 1990 and the first THX Ultra-2 loudspeakers 11 years later.
