SeriesX Certified Speaker Design
the many gifts of music… and
of sound with sight… enjoyed
by all, all of the time
through innovative, knowledgeable, high value, high-fidelity A/V system designs.
The ONLY accurate way to enjoy the audio of video programing
because it alone solves all of the inherited problems ALL other A/V speaker arrays have.

problem with all other surround sound speaker systems - their heritage.
History Lessons Forgotten
First was stereo — two channels, it was very good.
came “quadraphonic” (until Quad, the manufacturer of audio equipment in
England, got upset and threatened to sue) that became just multi-channel.
David Hafler of Dynaco came up with the Quadaptor that worked great!
So far, so good; then came the marketers.
Then came the add-on subwoofer — you notice that I did not write
“subwoofers”. Back then, it was
so big that the marketers felt that people would put up with only one and they
made a big deal that low frequencies are omnidirectional, so you only need one
— wrong on two points. To prove
that this marketing claim is wrong go to any store that sells subwoofers. Ask
the salesperson to turn off everything except the subwoofer.
Then, while listening to music: close your eyes, turn around, stop, and try to point toward that one subwoofer.
You’ll be able to because they are directional, so where they’re
placed and how many are important.
Then came the add-on, single, different, small center channel speaker where most
of the sound you listen to comes from. Three
more problems here: the small speaker limits the quality of the sound, the
different speaker does not correctly integrate with the front speakers, and the
single speaker places the sound in the wrong position wherever it is placed.
Then, came the add-on, small, rear speakers that have the same first two
problems as the center speaker.
Then, came the add-on, tiny front, center, and rear speakers that exaggerates the integration problem.
The History Lesson Learned
senior designer sold audio equipment through all of these stages of add-ons and
knew of the limitations. One day, he
decided to try to solve all of these inherent problems that all surround-sound
speaker systems have and he did, thus the birth of the SeriesX
systems, and then the creation of the SeriesX
array design that uses available components done right.

P.S. The "X" in the SeriesX name does not stand for how many improvments there are to using this array of speaker systems, although it should be a reminder. It stands for the roman numeral X that stands for 10 - the minimum number of individual speaker systems needed to successfully create an accurate surrounding sound field: six full-range and four subwoofers.
