Real wood. Real high performance.

The heart of the RT5000 system is the RT3000p front loudspeaker, a 4-piece "powered tower" system consisting of left and right full-range speakers and dual powered subwoofers.

The RT3000p features:

  • Cascade Tapered Array provides wide angle dispersion insuring high quality sound for off-axis listeners.
  • Acoustic Resonance Control (ARC) port system reduces unwanted internal enclosure resonance for utterly clear and lifelike midrange reproduction.
  • Subwoofer volume control on front panel for easy access.
  • Dual 8" woofers combine the speed and musicality of small drivers with the equivalent bass output of a single 12" woofer.
  • Power Port patented bass venting system vastly reduces air turbulence at the mouth of the port for lower distortion and more powerful bass.
  • Magnetic shielding allows safe placement near TV screens.
  • Wood veneer laminated to low resonance MDF cabinet panels for furniture grade appearance and lasting value.
  • Subwoofer LFE input for use with 5.1 Digital Surround systems.
  • 300 watt high current internal subwoofer amplifiers with adjustable low pass filters.
