It is well-known that there are two types of loudspeakers: hi-fi speakers that produce the most accurate, unaltered sound possible, and disco or musician's speakers, where the top volume level is of the utmost importance. These volume levels are normally only possible with horns but these often cause coloration of the sound. The MONITOR 890 MK IIwas designed specifically to combine the best of both worlds.
The question we asked ourselves during the development of the SUB T-25 was, "Is it possible to design a subwoofer with a minimal cabinetvolume of just 30 litres as low-range bass support for home video applications and even for medium-sized column speakers?"
The ATLANTIS has been consistently designed for optimum sound-pressure rating while retaining a moderately sized cabinet and an elegant appearance. In the bass range, two AL 170 8 OHM are mounted in parallel but in separate housings, where each has about 25 l of air space to itself. These speakers have a lower limiting frequency of 28 Hz meaning that they generate good, solid deep bass.
The smallest member of the SOLO family with its high-end B 200 - 6 Ohmfull-range loudspeaker has an inside capacity of only 20 l. The lower limiting frequency is at 52 Hz (-10 dB) and 65 Hz (-6 dB).
The B 200 - 6 Ohm was fitted in a narrow column speaker with a net volume of around 100 litres. Due to the high Q-factor, one would normally have a relatively strong increase in reverberation response at around 60 Hz in a normal enclosed chamber or bass reflex cabinet.
This, the fourth version of the ATLAS COMPACT, now boasts the latest driver highlights that the VISATON range has to offer. Apart from the TIW 360 8 OHM and AL 170 8 OHM used in the MK III version, the latest version makes use of the TI 100 8 OHM as the mid-range loudspeaker and KE 25 SC 8 OHM as the tweeter. The crossover unit has been completely redesigned and adapted to match the new drivers.
The CONCORDE MK II 3-way system may not be able to fly, but in terms of sound, it really soars. The mere shape and the drivers used give an idea of its qualities. The tailored baffle in the medium to high-frequency range produces optimised omnidirectional sound distribution one of the reasons why the sound distribution throughout the room is so smooth.
