Intimus 4C Center Channel SpeakerThey say seeing is believing, but in truth the eyes don’t have it when it comes to making performances real: The ears do. That’s why after shooting a film, directors cram in sound effects—to create a world made believable by ringing phones, hooting owls and primal screams.
Reality gets a boost when the Intimus 4C Center Channel goes to work. This quart-sized speaker transmits full-bodied sound and striking midrange clarity. The natural high of our 1" silk tweeter and lush range of our 4" woven-fiberglass mid-woofers unite to produce heady music, gripping dialog and mind-bending effects that catapult you into a performance.
With its streamlined aesthetic and Gloss Black finish, the Intimus 4C complements any décor. To ensure it’s a stand-out, we start with solid wood cabinetry, then finish it with hand-rubbed, multi-layered lacquer that rivals the gleam on top-quality concert pianos.
The only unreal aspect of the 4C? The value. But that means you won’t have to think twice about adding it to your sound system, whether you combine it with the 4B Satellite speakersand subwoofer for a knockout 3.1 channel setup or with its other Intimus kin for full surround sound.

1" Audiophile-Grade Silk-Dome Tweeter
We engineered the 1-inch, audiophile-grade, silk-dome tweeter for optimal sonic performance—even at the highest volume levels—so you savor warm, natural sound with no harsh aftertaste. This tweeter’s unique venting system uses a rear chamber with multiple rear vents outside the neodymium magnet, a departure from conventional systems that use a single vent through the magnet’s center. Leaving the magnet fully intact results in a stronger motor structure with a lower resonant frequency, smooth response and amazingly pure, authentic sound. This tweeter is the high point of our speaker—literally.
4" Woven-Fiberglass Midrange Drivers (one active driver and one passive radiator)
Our custom 4" woven-fiberglass midrange makes your music, movies and games come alive. This robust and versatile little driver is tough enough to handle the thump-thump-thump of lower midrange frequencies, yet precise enough to support a choir of voices. It may be small, but our midrange driver packs a solid punch by delivering pure, distortion-free sound and flawless dialogue.
Each of our Intimus III speakers wears the new black, but it’s anything but basic. We apply layer after layer of lacquer, hand sanding and polishing between coats to achieve a deep and brilliant shine. The precision-fit cabinetry unites the acoustic qualities of the most expensive loudspeakers with a curved-edge aesthetic that lets the Gloss Black Intimus III blend effortlessly with any décor.
Every Intimus 4C cabinet is made of solid 15mm-thick medium-density fiberboard (MDF) to eliminate unwanted cabinet vibrations that muddy the sound. Muting the speaker walls ensures that the only input to your ears comes from your movies, music and games.
5-Way Gold-Plated Binding Posts
When you make a connection, it's all about convenience. Whether you use banana plugs, bare wire, round pins, flat pins or spades, our binding posts ensure effortless attachments to your new speakers. And though the gold plating may make you feel regal, it has a practical purpose too: Gold resists corrosion and provides the best possible connection to your receiver.
Acoustically Transparent Grille
Nothing stands between you and exceptional sound. We designed a sonically invisible grille that not only looks great, but also protects your precious speakers from curious fingers, claws, snouts, tentacles and trunks.
