Controlled Dispersion Technology (CDT)

CDT technology allows for the tweeter and the woofer to be aimed up to 15° in any direction, helping to ensure on-axis frequency response at almost any listening position.

Use Klipsch CDT speakers in a surround sound system where the speakers can’t live in the wall.  Or a kitchen where the recessed cans do not allow for symmetry on the ceiling.
