Product Information

If you like the sound of the Absolute Zero and Classic Two, the Absolute Center is the center channel speaker for you!  We made the Absolute Center as small as we possibly could while matching the timbre, dynamics, and dispersion of other NHT Classic models. 

The Absolute Center is a perfect example of NHT's high-end, without high-price philosophy. The Absolute Center uses tonally matched 5.25" woofers for use with the Absolute Zero's, Wall Speakers and Absolute  Towers. The 1” aluminum dome tweeter has a  powerful neodymium magnet assembly and "wonder bar" cooling/mounting bar assembly that we use in the Absolute Zero, Absolute Tower and Classic Two. The Wonder Bar secures the tweeter from the back of the cabinet, heat sinks (cools) the tweeter. This design allows us to tuck the tweeter tightly between the mid-range drivers which provides improved horizontal dispersion, and high power handling. Like all models in the NHT Classic line, the Absolute Center's cabinet is very robust, and uses ¾” wood substrate (MDF) for all surfaces, and dual internal braces. A hand-painted finish with 2 primer coats, 7 color coats and 2 clear coats producing a beautiful piano quality high-gloss, black finish. The Absolute Center comes with the Classic aluminum rails with a butyl rubber channel strip already attached. Finally, lets not forget that you’re buying an NHT speaker and that means all sorts of things. It means you care about getting the best speaker value for your hard earned money. It means and you care about quality craftsmanship and high-end performance. It means you’re ready to join our family of fanatics who love music, movies and the best gear that produces them.
