Niles DS8HD Developed as a left, center, right solution for home theater, Niles DS8HD features a fully pivoting woofer section that disperses low and midrange frequencies towards the seating area. At the heart of the speaker is a Niles 1-inch NCAT dome tweeter and 1.5-inch NCAT dome midrange driver. Augmenting these drivers is an 8-inch aluminum ceramic cone woofer, and managing the multi-driver array is an Asymmetric third-/fourth-order crossover network. Installer-friendly features built into the speaker include a dialog switch that enhances vocal presence and a tweeter level switch that can be used to blend the speaker into a variety of acoustic environments. With its weather-resistant construction and magnetic grilles, the speaker can be located nearly anywhere in the home.
