The VM-553 features three 5¼-inch aluminum cone woofers and dual 1-inch aluminum dome tweeters for pristine sound quality and outstanding performance. Developed for high-end home theaters or multi-channel media rooms, the VM-553 has the unique ability to perform double-duty as both a center channel speaker and as a main front left or right speaker for a surround sound system. The lower woofer and tweeter can be configured to perform the duty of the center channel, thereby eliminating the need for a separate dedicated center channel!
