As part of my review of the EMP Tek Cinema 7 Home Theater Speaker System, this additional profile presents a physical look at its design and features.

To start off, above is a photo of the system as viewed from the front, with the speaker grills on and off. The E10s ​powered subwoofer is the large box in the center of the photo (also shown: the detachable power cord). On top of the subwoofer is the E3c center channel speaker, and on either side are six E3b bookshelf speakers that used for the front, surround, and surround back channels.

Here is the final photo in our look at the EMP Tek Cinema 7 system that shows a close-up view of the E10s's controls and connections.

LFE and Line-In: This where you plug in the subwoofer LFE or Preamp output from your home theater receivers or AV processor.

Volume: This is also referred to as Gain. This is used to adjust the sound output of the subwoofer in relation to the other speakers.

Crossover: The crossover control sets the point at which you want the subwoofer to produce low-frequency sounds, against the ability of the center, main, and surround speakers to reproduce low frequencies. The crossover adjustment provided on the E10s is variable from 40 to 150Hz.

Phase: This control matched matches in/out subwoofer driver motion to the satellite speakers. This control can be set at either 0 or 180 degrees.

Auto: This is the standby On/Off switch. If set to On, the E10s will start when a low-frequency signal is detected. When set to off, the subwoofer is continuously on (the Master Power switch is not shown in this photo).
