RSL Speakers CG5 5.1 Speaker System $2,499 Review

Read Here



I was struck by the solid build quality of the CG5 series speakers, which have a flawless finish that any piano maker would be proud of. Subjecting the dense, well-braced cabinets to a knuckle-rap test yielded a dull thunk (a good thing), along with some sore knuckles.

The speakers’ solid build is likely due to what RSL calls its Compression Guide Technology, a fancy term for a pair of wall-to-wall internal baffles meant to reduce cabinet resonances by breaking up the air volume inside the box. Along with impacting air patterns, the baffles provide the added benefit of stiffening the cabinet’s side walls.
