Who is Premier Acoustics?
Company spokesman Eric Winston says:
Premier Acoustics has been in the home theater electronic business for over 20 years. We have taken the best features from many top of the line speaker manufacturers that are available in todays market and created an affordable, sleek and clean sounding speaker line. From the low end bass response of the powered subwoofer, to the high end of the soft dome tweeters, each speaker is designed to reproduce its specified frequency response perfectly.
At the top of Premier Acoustics line of Home Theater Speaker Systems is the PA-6F. The system is named after the PA-6F front speaker it uses, which is the largest front speaker in Premier Acoustics inventory.
The fronts are tower speakers, model PA-6F, and feature two 6.5 inch polygraphite woofers and a 1 inch soft dome tweeter. The surrounds are model PA-6S. The 6.5 inch woofers on the 6S are angled at approximately 90 degrees to radiate sound behind the audience. This design is popular among surround speakers because its good at diffusing sound; it makes it difficult for the audience to localize the sounds source, which is a critical element in successful execution of the surround sound effect. The PA-6S models are suited for smaller rooms where the audience will likely be sitting closer to the speakers.
The center speaker is the model 6C, a curious M-T-M (Midrange - Tweeter - Midrange) design. The midrange drivers looked like they might be spaced too far apart to provide proper dispersion into the audience - I was ready for light or hollow sounding midrange from the center channel speaker that couldnt articulate voices. But the 6C provided enough clear midrange that I never felt left out of the conversation.
Each speaker is a combination of handsome design and practical esthetic that will fit easily in most rooms. Premiere Acoustics paid attention to the details by integrating an attractive black piano gloss finish into their design, and even ensuring that the front tower speaker (the largest of the bunch) leaves only a small footprint on your floor. The surrounds can be wall mounted or placed on a shelf or stand. The center speaker at only 22 lbs and 21.9 inches in length, should easily fit on a modest shelf or on a stand on top of most projection TVs, without imposing on the room.Next: Build Quality
