Stand-mount/Bookshelf loudspeaker system
Braced cabinet construction dramatically reduces cabinet resonance by adding the twin
virtues of strength and rigidity to the cabinet walls. Gold-plated terminals permit bi-wiring
Having the tweeter separate from the main cabinet readily allows it to be set back and
time aligned with the acoustic centre of the bass/midrange cone, which is located behind
the plane of the front baffle, and minimises the effects of diffraction from the cabinet edges.
This results in improved imaging and coherence.
Kevlar®: B&W developed and patented the method of using Kevlar® for
loudspeaker cones to reduce unwanted standing waves. DuPont originally
created Kevlar® for use in bulletproof vests.
