Shown finished in Santo Rosewood these things are amazing! A 35 litre front ported High Quality loudspeaker using the excellent 8"  IPL/ 8/K shielded magnet Kevlar unit with its high power handling, low distortion, linear response  and sturdy cast chassis, and the superb fast and transparent IPL/Fountek CD3.0 Ribbon tweeter used in Monitor Audio's flagship speaker PL300 £6500. The sound quality of this speaker is outstanding combining smoothness, with amazing detail resolution, and transparency over the entire audible range. Because of its low distortion and accuracy this speaker is suitable for monitoring purposes as well as High quality Hi-Fi applications. The sound is fast, detailed, but delicate, combining a dynamic sound with a  musical presentation  covering a large bandwidth between 37hz and 30khz.. The IPL/Fountek Cd3.0  is similar to the Fountek Cd3.0 but pairs have been matched for response and sensitivity to the IPL/8/K bass units, This matching process is time consuming and involves specialist skills and test equipment and so incurs a small on-cost on the standard unit. The CD3.0 is now starting to appear in some very expensive commercial speaker designs. A  flared port improves smoothness of air-flow and bass quality.

The crossover uses an 12db/oct Low pass and a 12db/oct High pass  bi-wired crossover. Components used are high quality IPL Polypropylene capacitors, Super power and Steel laminate inductors and resistors. Now with magnetic grill covers for a cleaner look.

The Fountek are some of the best and most consistent Ribbon tweeters available, having a transparent but not harsh sound quality



The new improved Bi-wired crossover located on the back of speaker connector panel and uses superb quality IPL and MKP PP capacitors, super power steel laminate inductors inductors and large stable audiophile resistors.
