For Sale C4CA Active Centre

Postby simonthepieman » Mon Aug 07, 2017 10:06 am

Hello All

When I can work out how to do pictures I will post some.
My C4CA Active Centre is for sale . The Black sided , Grey/top with silver Aluminimum. Google it click" images" and
you can see. (some pics in this :- exaudio.net/web/wp-content/uploads/2013/11/C4.pdf)

It was the time when ATC went cool/modern, I use it with the matching 20/2's

It is in perfect working order and the only reason for sale is I have upgraded to a Pro SCM45a!

A couple of marks on edges of side cheeks nothing major.

As you would expect it is a superb centre, surprisingly compact and likely all you would need to match all ATC's from 7's 11's,20's 40's
(being obsessed with ATC's I just had to try the 45, sticking with 20's for left and right)

Based on twin 7 sized drivers (5" x 2 and seas 1" Tweeter HF) (2x 125mm mid base units and 1 x 25mm tweeter)
AMP is HF 50watts and LF is 250watts
57hz to 23KHz so should use a large or full range centre
Check the size High 190mm, wide 550mm and deep 380 so it will fit in many places of course Bloody Heavy
24.5kg !

Has XLR input but can be used with any Home Cinema AV/Amp/processor (Onkyo/Yam/Denon etc) using an rca adaptor or as i use
it with a made up RCA (phono) to XLR lead

I can not recall the original price but I think over £2k?

Asking £650 an active bargain !

It comes in a Wooden Crate which is also Heavy so collection makes sense
From Huddersfield West Yorks.

Just a few spec errors you may not have been aware of..........

The C4CA used the Vifa/Peerless D26NC-55-06 tweeter.........which made frequency response 57hz - 20Khz......with a max SPL of 108dB
The LF amp is 200W
"Nominal" (?) Weight was actually listed as 63lbs (28.5kg!!!)

A great centre for the money being asked (I had one).........
The only thing that might need doing is getting a new tweeter as the ferrofluid dries out over time.........but the cost of a replacement
(still available from ATC) is only around 40 or 50 pounds anyway!!!!

Good luck with the sale!!!!

thank you linger for the input

Also popped this centre on hififorsale

then no doubt will end up on ebay

It seems no one else on this forum needs a super black and silver contemporary Centre
with legendary ATC sound? :cry:
