Technology

 

  • Three-way, four driver configuration (both electrically and acoustically) allows drive units to be optimised to deliver high efficiency and lowest distortion
  • New bespoke 25 mm C-CAM, (Ceramic-Coated Aluminium/Magnesium) tweeter featuring vented Neo magnet system optimised for lower distortion and cleaner-sounding highs
  • Specially-developed 4-inch mid-range driver with 'under hung' voice coil and motor system so the voice coil is always in the magnetic gap ensuring incredibly low distortion
  • Dual 8-inch bass drivers with 'dished' C-CAM cone profile for better damping and improved mid-range clarity
  • RST Cone profile for improved diaphragm rigidity and lower distortion
  • Unique-build ring/voice coil-cone coupling mechanism (DCF) optimised to reduce high-frequency cone break-up and increase the critical voice coil circumferential rigidity. Cast polymer driver chassis design - improved rigidity and damping characteristics
  • HiVe II port technology means improved transient response and tighter bass, due to smoother airflow
  • Pureflow silver-plated OFC copper internal cabling gives highest quality transfer through the signal chain
  • High-quality crossovers featuring premium-grade bespoke polypropylene film capacitors, air-core and low-loss laminated steel-core inductors equate to maximum signal transfer and zero distortion
  • Rigid 20 mm MDF construction utilising scientifically optimised cabinet bracing
  • Single bolt-through driver technology provides increased bracing strength, rigidity and driver/baffle de-coupling
  • Ultra-low profile grilles featuring invisible magnetic grille fixings for clean visual styling when fitted
  • Bespoke, high quality bi-wire terminals
  • Terminal panel located at floor level for easy termination and neat cable access
  • Out-rigger feet (spiked, or rubber for hard flooring) provide attractive appearance while taking up less floor space
  • Selected, premium-quality wood veneers, high-gloss lacquer and contemporary Satin White finishes.
