A supplementary long-throw 15" paper cone bass driver gives exceptionally deep and dynamic bass performance. The 25 mm SuperTweeter with magnesium alloy dome and neodymium magnet system extends response to 61 kHz to accurately reproduce the leading edge of notes.
The Dual Concentric features a 75 mm aluminum-alloy diaphragm and Mylar surround compression driver to deliver exceptional clarity and articulation in the mid to high-frequency range. A very low ( 700 Hz ) crossover point from the Dual Concentric midrange to compression driver greatly enhances vocal quality.
A highly efficient 96 dB/W sensitivity and 1,200 watt peak-power handling deliver breathtaking dynamics and realism. Cryogenically treated crossovers featuring ICW ClarityCap* capacitors, low loss laminated core inductors, and thick film resistors, and the crossovers are decoupled from cabinet vibrations by a three-point suspension system to deliver a more natural and cohesive sound.
Neotech PC-OCC* internal wiring with 99.99% high purity solid silver wiring on the SuperTweeter gives excellent signal transparency.
Heavy-duty electro-plated brass NextGen WBT* bi-wireable binding posts improve signal transmission and integrity. A fifth binding post provides grounding to reduce radio frequency interference and improve midrange clarity.
The metallic speckled satin paint finish cabinet with genuine carbon fiber side cheeks provide a unique and timeless piece of furniture. The high-density birch ply and laminated particleboard cabinet provides extreme rigidity to control low-frequency performance. A large diameter rear port provides very low-frequency tuning with minimal turbulence for accurate bass reproduction. Extensive bracing incorporates DMT ( Differential Materials Technology ) to couple drivers to cabinets. Precision cast and machined silver anodized aluminum metal trims complement the aesthetic of the real wood cabinet
