VOX 251 HE
The VOX 251 HE is an upright speaker with its subwoofer TIW 250 8 Ohm let into the side-wall. This design enables the front panel to be kept very narrow making it that much easier to position. One of the most outstanding features of the TIW 250 8 Ohm is its unbelievable ability to reproduce the lowest range bass in surprisingly small cabinets. In the listening area, the bass pressure becomes tangible rather than audible, the sort of effect you would normally only expect from much larger speakers. The VOX 251 HE is, in this respect, well able to keep up with the larger column systems such as the EXPERIENCE V 20. As a result of the side-opening position of the TIW 250 8 Ohm's, the separating frequency between the subwoofer and the mid-range drivers has to be very low. This has been achieved by means of an especially intelligent frequency cross-over design.
In order not to restrict the dynamics at higher bass levels, a bass reflextube with an exceptionally large cross-section and corresponding length has been designed. In this way, flow-related losses are kept to a minimum. The vent is at the bottom in the rear wall so as not to interfer with the attractive appearance of the front face. If the speaker is to be placed right against a wall, the reflex opening can easily be positioned at the front. The bevel on the front will then, however, have to be narrower.
This new version of the VOX contains the new tweeter G 25 HE 8 Ohm.
This VISATON system is the final proof that power, impressive breadth of the musical spectrum, rapid response and a fantastic overall sound panorama do not require monster-speakers."
"...VOX, that takes your attention right from the word go, produces clear-as-a-bell sound, builds up tempo easily. And in so doing, makes you feel you're listening to a massive speaker array, in other words, creates a virtual large-sized speaker system."..
"... the VISATON grumbled its way solidly through the bass regions in a most pleasing fashion, and even true woofer fetishists will confirm that this is pure black, beautifully controlled bass pleasure."
"This one copes with volume levels normally left to those fridge-sized monsters, and yet retains a clarity and lack of distortion that is reemarkable."
"Everything needed to make a loudspeaker system good, is to be found in the Vox 251. These speakers punched out unbelievably deep, powerful bass without a hint of sponginess and with a crispness you could feel. But that is no good alone if the rest is not up to it. And it is! The two aluminium diaphragms in conjunction with the excellent tweeters conjured up a remarkably colourful overall sound quality in the listening room filled with the finest details. At the same time, there was no shortage of liveliness and dynamism."
"In the K&T test room, the Vox system wasted no time in riveting our attention: seldom does a speaker system sound so clearly defined and crisp." "The Vox by VISATON is a loudspeaker that can cope with the highest outpuut levels quite supremely and with quite remarkably powerful bass."
"While most loudspeaker manufacturers have to be content with what they can pick up ready-made, the VISATON developers prefer to design their own drivers as they need them. Which is exactly what they have done for the VOX system, a set of high-grade speakers designed to meet the highest demands for omnidirectional sound reproduction in living rooms. These Visaton speakers produce very mature sound. What this means is that the entire sound picture is carried on a clearly reproduced bass foundation that is a feature reserved for large-scale drivers and cabinets. A case where size does matter. This makes all the difference between good and very good sound reproduction.
The show put up by this set of speakers is really very satisfying."
