Dayton Audio CCS-33B 3-3/4" 3-Way Center Channel Speaker Black

Dayton Audio’s CCS-33 3-way center channel speaker provides smooth blending of the 3-3/4" long-excursion woofers, a 5/8" poly dome tweeter, and a 5/8" piezo super tweeter to create outstanding performance. For a large format home theater setup, the CCS-33 can be used for each channel. The CCS-33 is voiced to provide a consistently matched sound when used together with the Dayton Audio satellite speakers, and they work great with Dayton Audio subwoofers. Contemporary speaker styling blends in with any decor, while the weather-resistant design means it can be used indoors or out. Included brackets and rubber feet facilitate stand-mounted, wall-mounted, or free standing operation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good SpeakerVery pleased with this speaker. Bought two of them. One for the TV room and for back porch. Hooked up to old style home theater systems as center speaker. (don't have HDMI inputs). Really brings out the voice in moves and music. They produce good sound at lower volume. No distortion. Haven't turned them up, so can't say how loud then can get. So far, zero problems with them. As far has hook up and mounting, I used 14 gauge wire and just set them on the stereo shelf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Well With Sub WooferI bought this to replace a failed center channel speaker. This speaker blends in well with my existing Dayton Audio powered sub woofer, Its compact size fits in my limited space and meets my expectations.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Buyer Beware, Missing Sounds!I've owned this center for the last year and thought I enjoyed it until I just purchased a different center and realized I've been missing a lot of sounds in movies with the smaller dayton! If you're planning on using this for movies/music, I highly suggest saving an extra 50 to 100$ and buying a 2-way center channel that has at least 5.25" woofers–watch my video and you can easily hear how much the dayton is missing.I'm still going to use this speaker for the outdoor patio, but no longer for movies, that's for sure!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good loudspeaker at a great priceI purchased these to be use on either side of a computer monitor to provide a cosmetically nice look and decent sound. They are replacing boc loudspeakers (Boston Acoustic A40 ca 1980) They can stand on their end without tipping or be mounted vertically on the wall beside the monitor with the included bracket. They don't do deep base - but I have a sub for that. Sound-wise - I was mainly interested in their near-field cohesiveness. And for this the worked well. They have a fully extended high frequency response and play fairly well - though I estimate they are only 84dB/Watt sensitive. The high quality binding posts are wider than standards - so you will need to use single banana jacks for you speaker leads - or bare wire. The included speaker wire is a joke - 22 gauge I think. Use something better. Note they also include an adhesive rubber pad to go between the mounting bracket and the loudspeaker - a nice touch.I swapped them for my main speakers in my home theater system to see what they could do. I cranked my sub crossover up to 100Hz and everything filled in nicely. I could see these a L+R+C + REARS in a Home theater system. Overall an outstanding value - just add a sub (or two) and enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very clear dialogue for very little money!We moved, and now my main TV is 5 inches above a fireplace mantle, so I need a very short center channel. Missing my old BIC DV62, I bought a BIC DV32 and it was muddy, midrange heavy. I thought about gutting a commercial soundbar into a single speaker, or building my own, but thought I'd give this one a try. MUCH better clarity and power handling than the DV32 for about the same price. With a 100hz low cut at the reciever and a bit of HF boost, this is pretty powerful for its size and very clean past my range of audibility (the second tweeter is a piezo). If you have limited vertical space this is hard to beat for only $50, fills my largish room cleanly and balances pretty well with my gigantic JBLs.

Dayton Audio CCS-33B 3-3/4" 3-Way Center Channel Speaker Black

I want to use 8 of these speakers my out door pavilion. I do not need to worry about the left or right channel. I am wanting to hook all them together. What kind of amp will and how big will it need to be to run all 8 speakers?

By necessity, this speaker's signal will need to be drawn directly from the TV's audio OUT jack and amplified independent of the surround sound unit located 20 feet away. Will this config work with this speaker? If so, any amp suggestions?

Asked by: Chronic_Iguana
Yes. You can also use the Dayton Audio Wireless Rear Channel Amplifier System ( 300-579)Or a small 50 watt amp like the DTA-120 ( 300-3800)

My CCS 33B stopped working. There are two main speakers (not the tweeters) in series, and on one of these the braided flexible wire has disconnected from the voice coil in an impossible to repair way. Is that single speaker unit available?

Asked by: Steve181
Unfortunately we do not offer individual components for these speakers separately.
