The “C” in Jamo’s new C 80 Series hi-fi and home cinema loudspeakers stands for Concert, signifying this new range’s design objective—to reproduce the dynamics of a live concert at home.
The C 80 Series sports a stylish arc cabinet shape, and Black Ash or Dark Apple finish.
The models include the C 809, C 807 and C 805 floorstanding speakers, which feature a double bass-reflex port system to augment the bass and midrange frequencies.
The C 803 bookshelf speaker is a small, shapely 2-way bass reflex unit with a 7-inch woofer and 1-inch tweeter.
The C 803 IW in-wall speaker is sonically identical to the C 803, so the two can be mixed and matched.
The C 80 CEN center-channel features two 5-inch woofers and a 1-inch tweeter and a build that’s easy to angle to your listening position.
The C 80 SUR surround speaker is a dipolar rear channel speaker that generates a diffuse sound, courtesy of a pair of 6-inch woofers and 1-inch tweeters.
And last, but not least, the C 80 SUB is a front and rear-firing subwoofer equipped with two10-inch aluminium cone woofers at opposite ends of a closed cabinet.
