Milestone 604

Speaker system with 604 to 8 k in newly designed enclosure.

The unit is equipped with 604-8K which is a 38 cm coaxial type unit.
The low-frequency unit has a curved cone and corrugation edge made of high-quality corn paper, and a magnetic circuit made of strong magnets, aluminum, flat wire, and voice coils for reliable piston motion.
A horn type unit is used for the high-frequency band. Mounted through the center of the woofer, this unit features a highly rigid aluminum alloy diaphragm with a traditional tangential edge, heat-resistant voice coil and bobbin, and a Tangerine Phase Plug with low distortion and improved phase characteristics at 604 to 8 K.
Aluminum die-cast is used for the frame of the unit.

The biggest difference between the 604-8K and the original model is the shape of the horn. While the conventional unit used a multi-cellular horn, it has been changed to a manta ray Lehorn, which exhibits remarkably improved directivity and phase characteristics over a wide band.

A vented-type enclosure with an internal volume of 150 liters is used.
The enclosure is designed with a small baffle width to eliminate unwanted vibration and is made of 30 mm thick birch laminate.
Also, the exterior is finished with a teak veneer.

An M. F. level controller is located in the rear of the enclosure.
This level control does not change the level of the high-frequency unit. Instead, it gradually increases or decreases the band around the crossover of the woofer and driver units crossed over at 1.6 kHz by up to 10 dB.
