Take SAT and Take LCR
Energy Speaker Systems, an innovator and pioneer in the audio industry, is proud to introduce their new
flag-ship home theater solution called the Take SAT and Take LCR. The new Take models build upon the
incredible success of the previous Encore, Take, Take 5+1 and Take 5.2.
These newly designed speakers feature technology and performance unlike any other product in this class
and will redefine this category, like the original Take 5 did.
Both the Take SAT and Take LCR, sold individually, are constructed using a rigid aluminum enclosure to
minimize cabinet resonances without sacrificing internal volume. This results in better bass and blending
with a subwoofer. The Take SAT and LCR use Energy’s patented Elliptical Surround technology, for
incredible excursion and zero surround distortion, allowing small speakers to perform like much larger ones.
The Take SAT features Energy’s exclusive 1″ aluminum dome tweeter and a 3-1/2″ mica filled polypropylene
driver, built to handle the rigors of home theater and music. With 125 watts power handling and a frequency
response of 80Hz to 23KHz, the Take SAT will shine in any environment. All Take speakers feature
magnetically attached grilles and magnetic logos, allowing the user to orient the logo in the any direction.
The new Take SAT and Take LCR have been designed to be positioned in almost any conceivable location
with their included wall mounting bracket and glass base or the optional stand with glass base. The slim and
shallow speaker design allows for the system to integrate with any type of monitor, be it plasma, LCD or
even DLP. The Take SAT is complimented by the extremely versatile Take LCR speaker, which features
dual 3-1/2″ Elliptical Surround woofers and Energy’s exclusive 1″ chambered aluminum dome tweeter.
With 135 watts power handling and a 75Hz to 23KHz frequency response, the Take LCR offers tremendous
performance and SPL, no matter if it’s mounted horizontally or vertically. The Take LCR is the ultimate
speaker to match today’s LCD, DLP and Plasma sets, and comes with an integrated wall/ceiling mount and
table top stand, with glass base. The included bracket is adjustable up to 25 degrees left or right.
To compliment the new Take speakers, Energy recommends the use of the recently introduced S8.3, S10.3
or S12.3 powered subwoofers. This allows customers to build a system, based on room size, creating the
flexibility and customizability required today. The Take SAT and LCR are available in Silver, Black or White.
The Take SAT and LCR speakers are sold individually and will ship in October 2004, with 2 more models to
be available later this year. For more information contact Energy Speaker Systems, or visit: www.energy-speakers.com
