Aerial Acoustics 7CC - Elegant & Detailed
For two decades, Aerial Acoustics has been acknowledged for its excellent center-channel speaker designs. Starting with the original CC3, followed by the much larger CC5, continuing with the improved CC3B, to the current CC3C, the process has reached a new high in the Model 7CC. The Model 7CC provides improvements in naturalness, balance, detail resolution, sensitivity, dynamics, and transparency. When used with any of Aerial’s main speakers, it provides a seamless, realistic front soundstage. Its trim 24 x 8 x 12” deep package is easily placed on a shelf, tabletop or stand. Three 7CCs in a row can be a sound bar. Rear-panel switching can be adjusted to optimize for different mounting positions. The switching also allows the 7CC to be used with a wide range of other main speakers, where its uncolored, natural, well-balanced presentation will augment any system.
The Model 7CC reflects the Aerial Model 5T, 6T and 7T designs. It shares the same curved cabinet construction and high gloss finishes, the same tweeter, similar design and refinement in the midrange and woofers, and the same high level of crossover componentry and wiring.
The 7CC’s extremely rigid and inert curved shape is created by bonding multiple layers of wood together under high pressure for 48 hours in a 20 ton press. The resulting thick cabinet walls are further cross-braced. Individual front baffles for each woofer are attached to the cabinet face with damping glue which reduces the flow of energy from the drivers into the cabinet walls. The tweeter and midrange drivers are center-mounted on a thick black-anodized aluminum plate which seals their dedicated chamber and inhibits energy transmission to the cabinet. The internal volumes are damped with New Zealand long-fiber wool specifically chosen for its sonic character. All these steps ensure an inert enclosure capable of reproducing soft or loud music passages without sonic colorations.
The Aerial 7CC features the natural sounding 1” woven ring-dome dual-magnet Danish tweeter from the 7T, a midrange driver based on the 6T and 7T designs, and a new dedicated 6.7” long-stroke woofer custom-made for the 7CC. With the optimized high-order multi-element crossover and environmental compensation, the result is a natural life-like presentation and seamless, highly detailed response from 55 Hz to 25 kHz.
This Aerial, 7CC is in exceptional working and visual condition. Came in to us in a full Aerial package (7T will be posed soon) along with a magnificent JL Audio sub. The Rosenut finish is breathtaking with only the slightest signs of wear.
