Exquisite Center

Creating a Kharma Exquisite loudspeaker is a very long process. Looking for the perfect shape, materials and sound... that sense of graceful elegance you would expect from a handcrafted loudspeaker. The far-reaching attention to detail makes this speaker range a class of its own. The design of the new Exquisite Center also reveals this dedicated vision. Moreover the high-quality of this speaker is the result of our unique reputation and style, which is realized by a team of highly dedicated and committed specialists.

The new Exquisite center-speaker has a very important role in a home-cinema system, because most of the speech is mixed down to the Center speaker. By using two of the three Black label drivers for the sub-low and the remaining capacity for the mid range, the frequency-area of speech will be brought alive in a unique way.

Exquisite Center: Specifications

System features

The Exquisite Center has a multiple-layer cabinet, which is pressed in between two massive plates, leaving no room for resonance of the body and creating a completely dead cabinet. The drivers with zero compromise, a diamond tweeter and the Kharma Black Label drivers combined with a unique crossover, makes this Kharma speaker the worlds best full range centre channel. Moreover the Exquisite Center is essential to any upper end home cinema setup within the Exquisite Collection.

The Exquisite Center is available with both a high stand and a floor stand. The high version will put the speaker at exactly the right height, where the floor stand will aim the sound field to the right position.

Both a passive and an active version are possible for the Exquisite Center. The active Center has an integrated Kharma amplifier, which is very convenient in a home cinema solution to save space and need for extra external cabling.


The musicality you may expect from the Exquisite Center is for an important part created by the drivers, which can be seen as the engine of the loudspeaker. The quality of the driver is therefore crucial to compete with reality.

Without a doubt the quality of the driver is guaranteed by using a Diamond tweeter as a standard in the Exquisite Collection. This high-frequency driver is a true technological wonder. The tweeter has a diamond cone which have been realised by the so called CVD process. With this process incredible stiffness is reached with a minimum of thickness of only 50 µm. Notice a human hair is in the range of 17 to 180 µm. The cone is the most essential part of the tweeter and because this cone is made of Diamond the tweeter is capable to create impressively pure high frequencies.

High frequencies: 1 x 1-inch Diamond concave tweeter
Mid frequencies: 1 x 7-inch Omega 7 driver
Mid / Low frequencies: 2 x 7-inch Omega 7 driver

Exquisite Center: Options

Stock Program

A Kharma product must not only have an unbelievable refined sound, which meets the needs of a true music lover, but also must have an astonishing finish to compete with the musicality of the system. As known by Kharma, every customer can have a taste of its own. Therefore Kharma developed three programs to be able to fulfil all levels of customization: the Primary Stock Program, the Kharma Optionary Program and the Kharma Privileges Program.  

Primary Stock Program
This program has been targeted as to create the shortest possible delivery time for the official Kharma products. This program is therefore based on the most popular Kharma finishes, which have proven their looks in the past by many successful sales. In this way we can deliver both the high refined sound as the astonishing finish that can be expected from Kharma.

Optionary Program

The Kharma Optionary Program gives the freedom to tune the system both visual, to personalize the look of your speaker, as well as technical, to further refine the astonishing sound of your speaker.  

The visual tuning in the Optionary Program will give the customer the opportunity to choose between special selected Kharma colours and panel materials. These finishes have a higher level of customization and therefore the delivery time will be slightly longer than in the Stock Program. There is no extra charge for the Optionary paint colours, except for the colour indicated as special. The technical updates and panel finishes in this program will bring extra costs and can vary per option. 

Technical updates:    

  • Extreme Signature treatment
  • Signature treatment
  • Diamond Stand
