“I THINK THAT FALSE BELIEFS,
ESPECIALLY IN AUDIO, HAVE GIVEN
RISE TO SOME REALLY WILD DESIGNS.
FOR EXAMPLE, $25,000, 9 WATT AUDIO
AMPLIFIERS - YES, YOU READ THAT
RIGHT, 9 WATT. YOU WILL NEVER FIND ME
DESIGNING SUCH EQUIPMENT- I SIMPLY
DO NOT BELIEVE IN IT. HOWEVER, I LOVE
TO READ ABOUT SUCH DESIGNS AND I
LOVE TO THINK AND TALK ABOUT THEM.
I’M OVERJOYED THERE ARE PEOPLE IN
THIS WORLD WHO DO DESIGN AMPLIFIERS
LIKE THAT. IT’S PART OF WHAT MAKES
AUDIO SO MUCH FUN!
NEW FOR 2009
Since their introduction in 2006, the Cinema Ribbon line has forever
changed the notion that small boxes can’t deliver the luxury of
premium, audiophile sound. Now, this already legendary XT Series
line gets an important addition that also makes it more versatile
than ever before.
Patent # 6,104,248:
Sunﬁre’s Exclusive Tracking Downconverter
The Cinema Ribbon Bi-Pole is THE ONLY ON-WALL RIBBON BI-
POLE AVAILABLE today and features a long list of true, XT Series
performance features. First, it’s a purpose-built, on-wall surround
speaker that’s a perfect timbre match to any model in the existing
Cinema Ribbon line. It’s also the ONLY BI-POLE SPEAKER ON THE
MARKET TO FEATURE THE BENEFITS OF DUAL, SIDE-FIRING
RIBBONS. At 400 watts per cabinet, the deliberate location of each
pair of these high output ribbons create a wide“diﬀused”rear sound
stage so important for today’s soundtracks and multi-channel music.
This fact is made more remarkable when you consider the CRM-
2BIP’s ultra-slim 3-5/8”deep proﬁle. It’s one of the lowest proﬁle on-wall surround speakers of any type; as much as 50% SLIMMER THAN ANY
COMPARABLE SPEAKER. Add to all of this a beautiful, piano-like ﬁnish; legendary High Back-emf woofers with a professional installation
from an authorized Sunﬁre Dealer and you have all the rationale you need to add the Cinema Ribbon Bi-Pole to your home theater.
Intelligent Tweeter Shaping™
At 3-5/8”deep this model is a
great solution where a small
cabinet is preferred but high
performance is required.
The CRM-2BIP’s high output 4.5”woofer boasts a
one-of-a-kind“Triﬁlar”voice coil. This ultra
allows you to tailor the ribbons’
output level to your liking,
while keeping the critical vocal
regions in-tact. The result is a
speaker that sounds like it was
made just for you.
lightweight, six-layer design delivers up to an 80%
increase in output when compared to conventionally
wound designs. The result: a woofer that will play
very loud; much louder, in fact, than of those other so
