SuperSat 3  

SuperSat 3 Overview

SuperSat 3The SuperSat 3 is an elegantly curved, compact satellite speaker designed for use when very high-performance yet small size is desired. (It is also the ideal matching rear or side surround speaker for a system based on a Triton Tower, SuperSat 50's or SuperSat 60's.)  Four SuperSat 3s and one SuperSat 3C, combined with a ForceField 3 powered subwoofer, make up the superlative and award winning SuperCinema 3 sub/sat multichannel system.

As with all SuperSat models, there is both a vertical model and a horizontal ("C") model optimized specifically for center-channel applications. The SuperSat 3’s svelte, 2.7” deep, 12” tall cabinet is constructed from a rigid, non-resonant marble-powder infused polymer and is finished in a gorgeous piano-gloss black.

Every GoldenEar SuperSat speaker model takes advantage of the extraordinary GoldenEar High‐Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR™) design tweeter. The HVFR tweeter propagates sound waves and moves the air by squeezing it with its accordion‐like pleated diaphragm, rather than pushing it as conventional drivers do. The result is better impedance matching to the air in the room with greater control, smoother more extended response with lower distortion and dramatically improved dynamic range. Each SuperSat speaker model also utilizes GoldenEar’s ground‐breaking 4.5" cast-basket upper bass/midrange drivers, which incorporate our proprietary Multi-Vaned Phase Plug design (MVPP™) as well as our proprietary computer optimized cone topology, arranged in a D’Appolito array surrounding the HVFR tweeter.

The SuperSat 3 includes a stand for shelf mounting (shown, left); the SuperSat 3C includes an adjustable angling foot for ideal center channel positioning.  Both models incorporate a threaded insert as well as a keyhole mount for wall mounting options. Or, use the optional SuperStand 3 Floor Stand - note total height of speaker and floor stand is 46".

 
   

SuperSat 50 Overview

SuperSat 50The SuperSat 50 is a slim, 27” long, 2.5”-deep speaker which is available in both a vertical version (SuperSat 50 - right, shown on optional Table/Shelf stand) as well as a horizontal, center-channel-optimized version, the SuperSat 50C. Its powerful and dynamic output capabilities make it the ideal center channel for a Triton based theater system, as well as a perfect choice to go alongside a wall- or shelf-mounted flat screen.  Of course, the 2.5” depth makes it a perfect on-wall match for the new generation of super thin flat screens.

Its cabinet is constructed from piano-gloss-black-finished aerospace-grade aluminum and contains two GoldenEar 4.5” cast basket bass/midrange drivers with Multi-Vaned Phase Plug (MVPP) configured in a D’Appolito array, surrounding the High-Velocity Folded Ribbon tweeter. Two 4”x 7” quadratic planar low-frequency radiators complete the driver complement. Wall mounting is easily accomplished using the threaded inserts or keyhole mounts on the rear, or table top using the optional smoked-glass Table/Shelf Stand 50 (shown, right), or even floor standing using the optional SuperStand 50 Floor Stand - note total height of speaker and floor stand is 48". The horizontal SuperSat 50C center-channel version includes adjustable leveling feet allowing for multiple angles when shelf/table top mounting.

SuperSat 60  

SuperSat 60 Overview

SuperSat 60The SuperSat 60 and 60C (SuperSat 60 - left, shown on optional Table/Shelf stand) are larger, more powerful versions of our award-winning SuperSat 50 and 50C. They are designed to complement 60" and larger screens when used as left and right channels and mounted vertically next to them, as well as all screen sizes when used as a horizontal center channel or mounted on their optional stands. They provide a larger, more powerful, higher power-handling step-up from our SuperSat 50C when used as a center channel paired with any of our Triton Towers or with any of our other speakers including the SuperSat 50s.

The sleek, attractively sculpted cabinet follows the same design philosophy that won the SuperSat 50 the highly respected Resi Award as the industry’s best looking on-wall loudspeaker. It is constructed from aerospace-grade aluminum and finished in gorgeous piano-gloss black. It contains four GoldenEar engineered 4.5" cast spiderleg-basket bass/midrange drivers with Multi-Vaned Phase-Plugs (MVPP) configured in a two-stage D’Appolito Array surrounding our signature High-Velocity Folded Ribbon high-frequency radiator. Two 4" x 7" quadratic planar low frequency radiators complete the driver complement, perfectly loading the bass/midrange drivers for open, boxless midrange and extended low-frequency response.

The SuperSat 60 and 60C’s very thin depth makes them perfect for wall mounting next to the latest super thin TVs. This is easily accomplished using the threaded inserts or keyhole mounts on the rear. Dual adjustable feet allow multiple angles when shelf-mounting the horizontal center-channel 60C. In addition, optional floor and tabletop stands are available for vertical mounting.
