Similar to exquisite diamonds, heirloom watches, and fine automobiles, CAT ultra high performance loudspeakers, amplifiers, DSP's - digital signal processors, and cables employ industry defining design, engineering, state of the art CNC manufacturing, and exotic materials. ....more


Though CAT leaves all competition behind, CAT ELITE further distances itself from the pack. Similar to the improvements tourbillion movements offer compared to other fine watch movements, the joy of driving sports cars equipped w/ 800 horsepower engines contrasted to 500 horsepower engines, CAT ELITE employs numerous advancements above CAT ....more


CAT MBX is truly the CAT's meow! Equivalent to Formula One and America's Cup racing, by employing the top engineers, designers, exotic materials (options include MBX105, aluminum, stainless steel and titanium), CNC machining, mandatory on-site engineering/calibration/tuning by a CAT MBX factory engineer, and CAT MBX certification, performance and reliability is unrivaled and assured! ....more

... CAT prides itself in striking the perfect balance between value, reliability, performance, and design. Inferior paper, plastics and particleboard - MDF (all are predominantly used in mass market speakers) are avoided by CAT. In positive contrast, CAT's superior loudspeaker enclosure material options include HDF, Corian, Avonite, MBX 105, exotic hardwoods and aluminum. CAT avoids using cheap 100V (and less) crossover components (circuit boards, coils, capacitors, and resistors). To substantially increase performance, reliability, musicality, and power handling, CAT's proprietary 500V audiophile and military grade circuit boards, perfect layer 6N copper coils, polypropylene capacitors, and resistors provide the seamless technology that makes CAT leap ahead of all competition. CAT's unique proprietary drivers (woofers, midranges, and tweeters) are crafted to wristwatch quality (material options include - polypropylene, poly-mica, composites, and aluminum), and are truly the envy of the loudspeaker world. Stainless steel nuts and bolts are used instead of wood screws, long hair virgin wool supplants cheap polyfill, and binding posts are plated in gold. Architects and designers passionately embrace CAT's ability to custom manufacture loudspeaker enclosures and loudspeaker grilles in any size, shape, or color to seamlessly "disappear" or "enhance" elite decors. CAT's multi-award winning, cool operating amplifiers define reliability, accuracy, protection, and sound reproduction capabilities, while delivering clean audiophile power into the low impedance loads (demanded by CAT's proprietary drivers). By utilizing 6N (6 nines) copper, proper engineering and manufacturing techniques, CAT loudspeaker and XLR interconnect cables accurately transfer audio signals with speed and precision.

... CAT ELITE's proprietary drivers are armed with substantially larger, more powerful neodymium magnets (the backbone of the driver motors), stronger curvilinear aluminum driver cones, and copper phase plugs (CNC'd to wristwatch quality) are added to midrange drivers to dissipate heat from the driver magnet structure while eliminating unwanted cone reflections. Cast aluminum driver baskets are strengthened, and overall driver accuracy, speed, musicality, and SPL is even more extraordinary. CAT ELITE loudspeaker enclosures are even more robust than CAT's. Crossovers are more complex, yet reliability is taken to new heights. Bi-amping and Tri-amping each loudspeaker is more commonplace, as well as widespread use of CAT DSP's - digital signal processors (usually up to 24 channels). CAT ELITE sound systems are larger than CAT systems, and require more design, engineering, project management, and on-site engineering/calibration/tuning hours. Most CAT ELITE systems employ large scale versions of CAT's subwoofer balancing systems (the use of multiple, correct acoustically positioned subwoofers in the front, side, and even the rear walls of a room that work together in concert to provide near equal levels of accurate, quick bass to all listening positions). In addition to adding accuracy, speed, and musicality to the bass frequencies at all listening positions, CAT ELITE's subwoofer bass balancing systems "SBBS" and subwoofer bass management systems "SBMS", significantly reduce listening fatigue. These CAT ELITE subwoofer balancing systems usually deploy between 6 and 12 subwoofers that perform in concert to correctly balance the LFE bass throughout the room. Each CAT ELITE room balancing subwoofer "RBS" is correctly acoustically positioned, receives it's own amplifier and DSP - digital signal processor channel, and is engineered/calibrated/tuned on-site by an acoustician, or a CAT ELITE A/V integrator, and on occasion, an actual CAT factory engineer.

... Custom ultra high performance CAT MBX audio systems are designed, engineered, custom manufactured, and always on-site engineered/calibrated/tuned and CAT MBX "certified" in the room/space in question (home theaters, media rooms, outdoor audio, two-channel music, recording/mix/playback studios, mega yachts and large scale private aircraft). No two racetracks or ocean courses are the same, and no two rooms/spaces behave the same acoustically. As the best suits, racing bikes, golf clubs, and shoes are tailored for your body, CAT MBX audio systems are custom manufactured and tuned in your room/space by a factory CAT MBX engineer! CAT MBX loudspeaker systems employ exotic materials (options include HDF, Corian, Avonite, MBX105, marble, granite, concrete, aluminum, 304, 316, 316L, and 2205 stainless steel and titanium). CAT MBX amplifiers are the most powerful, most reliable, most musically accurate, fastest, fully differential output stage ultra high performance amplifiers in the world! CAT MBX systems deploy dozens of bass balancing subwoofers "BBS", and room balancing subwoofers "RBS" (up to 100 subwoofers per room), for the subwoofer bass balancing systems "SBBS", and subwoofer bass management systems "SBMS". CAT MBX driver arrays can top 10 drivers per channel! In addition, some CAT MBX systems for our most fortunate CAT MBX clients, are armed with 21 channels (instead of the traditional 7), and 100 subwoofers (instead of the traditional one or two). Yes, CAT MBX systems can deliver in excess of 21.100 channels (instead of the traditional 7.1) of awesome, pure, accurate audio reproduction at all volume levels (from whisper quiet to rock concert) in perfect clarity that exceeds most top recording/mix/playback studios! CAT MBX loudspeaker cables are often 9ga. 6N OCC copper and the finest XLR CAT MBX interconnects are solid silver! CAT MBX audio systems usually start around $500,000 US and can top $16 million US! Elite architects, designers, and builders love the unparalleled flexibility, customization, and aesthetic appeal of CAT MBX "we always fit" systems! World leaders, Fortune 500 executives, Oscar and Grammy award winners, sports superstars, recording engineers, and fortunate grandparents, parents, and children enjoy rewarding their families and friends to CAT MBX performance, reliability and ease of use!
