B&W Nautilus HTM-1 center channel in Red Cherry. I have taken this beautiful center channel in on consignment. This one owner center channel was originally purchased from an authorized B&W dealer and was only used for about 100 hours. I have the original box and packing foam, but it would be best to ship this strapped to a pallet via freight. Contact Scott at [email protected]
or call/text (972)754-8359 with any questions.
The Nautilus HTM1 Magnetically shielded center channel loudspeaker system is the larger of the two center channels in the Nautilus 800 Series, and incorporates the Nautilus™ tweeter unit, Kevlar® cone and Matrix™ cabinet.
The speaker consists of one Nautilus™ treble unit, one Kevlar® midrange drive unit and two paper/Kevlar® drivers for bass and midrange. The speaker permits bi-wiring to improve sound quality and imaging, shielding enables the speaker to be placed on or near a television.

B&W's Tweeter on top technology ensures that the sound remains focused and time-sensitive and that the stereo-image is presented with unparalleled three-dimensional accuracy.
B&W developed and patented the method of using Kevlar® for loudspeaker cones to reduce unwanted standing waves. DuPont originally created Kevlar® for use in bulletproof vests.
The basic construction of nearly all Nautilus loudspeakers is the same - panels of wood-based materials, bonded to form a rectangular box. B&W studied and evaluated how each aspect of cabinet behavior and the efficiency of various materials and construction methods affects sound.
Flowport golf ball aerodynamics theory points the way towards lower distortion reflex ports. Dimples improve the way the air flows over the surface of any object. In the case of reflex ports, they offer a significant improvement over simply flaring the port ends in reducing air flow turbulence at each end of the port; so you get less chuffing noise and less compression at high sound levels.
