Infinity R253BK 3-Way Dual 5.25 Inch Floorstanding Loudspeaker - Black
Your new point of reference for high-quality sound
As the smaller of the two Reference Series floorstanding models, the R253 packs a powerful punch. The heart of this compact floorstanding speaker is the 1" (25mm) CMMD™ high-frequency driver mated to our advanced waveguide. This combination provides seamless integration with the midrange and smooth coverage across a wide listening area. A 5.25" (130mm) flat-piston CMMD™ midrange with a dedicated sub-enclosure provides superior vocal and dialogue intelligibility. Dual 5.25" (130mm) CMMD™ woofers work in conjunction with the tuned-port enclosure to provide powerful, deep bass response that will make your music and movies come alive. The R253’s slender design and elegant details provide a rich appearance that blends well with any décor.
Compact floorstanding loudspeaker ideally suited for music and home theater systems
The R253’s small size allows for flexible placement within your room. They can be used as front main channel speakers in a music or home theater system and are sonically matched to companion Reference Series center and surround loudspeakers and powered subwoofers allowing you to create the ideal system solution for your needs.
1" (25mm) CMMD™ tweeter with advanced waveguide
The combination of the acoustical science and patented designs found in the 1" (25mm) CMMD™ (Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm) tweeter and advanced waveguide provides seamless sonic integration with the CMMD™ midrange while providing excellent high-frequency detail and smooth coverage across a wide listening area.
5.25" (130mm) CMMD™ flat-piston midrange with dedicated sub-enclosure
The flat-piston design reduces critical high- and mid-frequency diffraction found in traditional cone-type midrange drivers. This helps to improve the integration with tweeter and woofers and provides better balanced sound across the entire frequency range. The dedicated sub-enclosure prevents harmful interaction with the woofers inside the cabinet and allows the midrange to remain crystal clear at all times.
Dual 5.25" (130mm) CMMD™ high-output woofers with tuned-port enclosure
Powerful bass is key to a high-quality sound experience and the strength of Infinity’s extremely rigid woofer cones – constructed from CMMD™ (Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm) – help to deliver a wide frequency range with minimal distortion. These woofers work in conjunction with the tuned-port enclosure to provide powerful deep bass that makes your music and movies come alive.
Computer-optimized driver positioning and network integration
Infinity’s advanced acoustical modeling design places the drivers in the ideal location within the cabinet allowing them to work with the enclosure and not against it. The advanced positioning and crossover network integration reduce harmful sonic artifacts that would otherwise detract from the overall performance of the loudspeaker. The end result is balanced, accurate sound with lifelike imaging and soundstage that brings the musical performance right into your home.
Sleek, contemporary enclosure design
The slim profile of the R253 is complemented with a rich, black woodgrain finish and hidden fasteners that provide for a clean look that blends easily with any décor.
Elegant design details
The waveguide, midrange and woofers feature black chrome trim rings while the waveguide surface is finished with a rich, soft-touch paint. The silver phase ring highlights the CMMD™ tweeter mated to the waveguide. Brushed trim with an embossed Infinity logo highlights the grille and completes the elegant design.
