The cabinets of the Classic loudspeakers consists of three layers with various dampening characteristics and different levels of stiffness. The result, a sandwich cabinet, has a thickness of 20 millimeters and possesses acoustic characteristics of significantly greater design diameters. A major advantage of the three-layer wall is the dramatic reduction in sound permeability, especially in medium frequencies. For the stiffness of the cabinet is not the sole factor that is acoustically relevant; also how much inwardly-emitted sound escapes outside through the walls. A heterogeneous sandwich is significantly more successful at dampening this sound than a uniformly dense material, and at the same time it is effective in eliminating partial vibrations. These new designs achieve a minimum of resonance and thus a minimum of intrinsic sound previously considered unattainable in this price range.
Ideal conditions for the also newly developed front baffle of the Classic 10. The cones for low and medium frequencies are symmetrically arranged around the tweeters. This creates uniform distribution of pressure on the cabinet; best prerequisites for precise sound reproduction, combined with a superb location of instruments and artists.
In the bass, the driver cone works in tandem and create a powerful foundation full of depth. The surround and drive of the chassis allow the suspension system greater linear lift and thus, even in booming surround applications, afford stunning reserves for a high-fidelity performance. The design improves the dissipation of heat from the moving system.
The actual midrange woofer is located beneath the tweeter dome. It is equipped with a generously dimension drive and a four-layer copper voice coil to achieve optimal power conversion and an exact displacement of the membrane. The star-shaped acoustic panel around the tweeters facilitates uniform sound dispersion. This allows the high-performance fabric dome to fully develop its capabilities – far beyond the audible range of the human ear.
The Classic 10 loudspeakers offer as standard, the WBT nextgen plug connections for banana connectors and sandwich spades for top-quality sound. These high-tech terminals also minimize factors affecting sound due to micro vibrations
Each Classic 10 is delivered with two different front panels; one version without a cover, offering a view of the front baffle, and another front panel covered with fabric. The front panels can be effortlessly swapped out and are acoustically neutral.
The intelligent base design of the Classic 10 is an integral element of the loudspeaker and guarantees a secure footing on any surface. For delicate flooring, we recommend the optional Vibration Control Feet VCF II M8 in order to achieve top-quality sound reproduction.
The Classic models are closer than ever before to the stunning sound capabilities of our higher end models in the line. Find out for yourself: Arrange to listen to Classic 10 loudspeakers by contacting your local dealer.
