VOX 253 HE

Characteristics and sound properties

The VOX 253 HE is an upright speaker with its subwoofer TIW 250 XS 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 XS 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 253 HE is, in this respect, well able to keep up with the larger column systems. As a result of the side-opening position of the TIW 250 XS 8 OHM 's, the separating frequency between the subwooferand 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 version of the VOX contains the tweeter G 25 HE 8 OHM.

The only difference between VOX 253 HE and VOX 251 HE is the new woofer TIW 250 XS 8 OHM. A change of the crossover was not necessary.

No longer available.
