A speaker system that enables sound reproduction with excellent transparency and total balance by using the same unit and know-how of the advanced machine Ascent.
A 22 cm cone type woofer is installed in the low range.
The diaphragm is made of Nomex / Kevlar composite honeycomb material and the elaborate magnetic circuit design allows for a large magnetic flux density in the voice coil gap.
A 2.5 cm hard dome type tweeter is installed in the high range.
A titanium hard dome with excellent input resistance is used for the diaphragm.
The enclosure has a Q-factor of 0.5 to reduce low-frequency energy storage to a practical size for home use, and the form is determined by a computer to completely eliminate standing waves and early reflections that impair the spatial effect of sound, which are great enemies to low-frequency clarity.
Hard wood material is used for the material, and external vibration and unit vibration are controlled by an 11 cm thick front baffle, two layer damping system, vibration control structure with reinforcement crosspiece, etc.
The crossover network is bi-wired.
In addition, the unit is housed in a shielded chamber at the bottom of the cabinet to prevent vibration and magnetic interference from the unit. In addition, with carefully selected parts and careful grounding, the unit is highly reproducible even in low-level playback.
It has a beautiful finish with a book match system that makes the wood grain symmetrical.
