The center speaker in the Tempus family is designed as a 2-way system and features two 130 mm bass-midrange drivers from the FE Dynamics series. A high load capacity, which is enabled thanks to the ventilated voice coil unit and a sturdy metal basket with generous air vents, is combined with the outstanding precision and speed provided by the coated paper cones. As is the case for other components in the Tempus series, the newly developed 25 mm fmax tweeter also ensures an optimum resolution in the treble range here with its powerful neodymium drive. The Airflex ports in the low-resonance MDF housing eliminate the flow noise generated by the bass reflex speaker.

"Magnat knows what is essential about speakers. This becomes obvious right from the beginning when listening to the speakers of the Tempus series and thus it is not surprising that the surround ensemble has almost completely convinced us. Considering their truly fair price combined with their spectacular sound it is easy to ignore some minor details like the speaker feet or the grille made of plastic – especially as one will anyway prefer to look into the wood-panelled face of the Tempus. Only substantially more expensive speakers will offer a tiny bit more plasticity. If you are not willing to pay some hundred Euros more for some subtleties of sound, you can buy Tempus speakers without hesitation. (...)"
