A glimpse pre-view of our latest speaker in the Voltaire range…….
Exceptional in many ways this design has virtually no cross-over and uses drivers specially chosen and adapted to give perfect integration in a 3 way system of incredible dynamics and realism.
Low frequencies are handled by a modified Volt 12” radial bass unit which takes bass control and precision to a new level and which runs completely open with no cross-over components in the signal path or in parallel.
The midrange frequencies are handled by a modified 3” Volt soft dome unit covering the most important mid band frequencies extending up to 4.5kHz crossing over to the legendary Raal ribbon tweeter to give shimmering highs only this tweeter is capable of.
The midrange unit has a single Dueland Coherent Audio cast resistor in series to lower it’s sensitivity and with a single Mundorf parallel capacitor to perfectly integrate with the tweeter.
The Raal tweeter then uses a single series Clarity Cap CMR capacitor which can be upgraded to a Dueland cast silver/oil capacitor on request.
Internal wiring has been specially chosen and using damping control and cryo frozen to give additional purity of signal path combined with WBT pole connectors.
All these components and virtually no cross-over equates to incredible dynamics and the rendition of musical passages only heard of from esoteric and extremely expensive loudspeakers.
