The CI Elite series is Crafted in Canada and has all the technology advantages and grille aesthetics of CI Pro, plus oversized voice coils and X-PAL™ pure aluminium cone technology for the ultimate in sound performance.

NEW X-PAL™ pure-aluminium woofer cones combine lightweight stiffness with high consistency for a greater degree of accuracy and smooth, uncoloured frequency response. Woofers feature long excursion, high-power 1.5-inch voice coil motors for greater power handling and reduced power compression.

Patented† Active Ridge Technology (ART™) surrounds, made inhouse and overmolded directly onto each cone, achieve greater excursion for a 3dB gain in distortion-free output (50% greater) compared to drivers with standard surrounds.

† US patents: D654,479S and 8,340,340B2.

NEW X-PAL™ tweeter with exclusive Perforated Phase-Aligning (PPATM) tweeter lens protects the delicate pure-aluminium tweeter dome and acts as the Phase Plug, blocking out-of-phase frequencies for smoother, extended high frequencies with incredible detail and higher output.

Tweeters are cooled by our patent pending RED™ die-cast aluminium housing (see below) and the original ultra-stable Ferrofluid, made exclusively by Ferrotec.

Die-cast aluminium chassis, baffles (in-wall models only), and clamps add strength and rigidity for better bass and midrange, along with a more durable installation.

Pocketed screw holes help to hold the drill steady, making installation a snap.

Magnetically attached grilles: neodymium magnets hold grilles firmly in place.

NEW Reduced Edge Diffraction (RED™) Technology (patent pending) RED™ technology significantly reduces negative effects of diffraction while improving frequency response.

The Irregular edges of the tweeter housing and its off-centre placement within the cone ensure sound waves reach the edges at different times. This design significantly reduces interference when compared to tweeter housings directly mounted to a cone.

NEW Rear Component Shielding protects internal parts from debris. The polycarbonate material creates an installation that will not warp. Flat covers also make it easy to lie speakers down during the installation process without tipping.
