90° X 90° Silicon Composite Hybrid Tractrix Horn
Horn loading maximizes efficiency and increases detail while focusing high frequencies on the listening area. Proprietary Tractrix® geometry provides the most efficient transfer of high-frequency waves into the listening area. The phase plug and compressed molded silicon face ensure smooth frequency response. When combined, the cleanest, most natural sound possible is created. The second generation increases horn size for a larger soundstage and enhanced directivity.
Linear Travel Suspension (LTS) Titanium Diaphragm Tweeter
The exclusive Linear Travel Suspension minimizes distortion for enhanced, detailed performance. LTS tweeters are a hallmark of previous Reference lines, making them a core component of some of the best speakers in the world.
Vented Tweeter Design
The vented tweeter housing reduces standing waves that create unwanted harmonics, resulting in enhanced detail and clarity in high-frequency reproduction.
Cerametallic Woofers - All-New Design
A signature feature of the Reference Premiere series, Cerametallic™ woofers are exceptionally rigid and lightweight for minimal distortion and maximum efficiency. New voice coils are 70% larger in diameter resulting in improved power handling and greater cone control for greater linearity and flawless reproduction. New aluminum shorting rings reduce distortion as well as increase power handling and the new motor structure improves transit response with more control, greater speed, and accuracy.
An all-new shallow-depth sealed design allows for this center channel speaker to be used for in-wall placement and prevents bass-loading against a back wall in tight spaces like fireplace mantles. The result is crisp, clear vocals in a small and versatile package.
