More Speaker Lust!


CarfraeHORN

  This speaker has recently come to my attention through various e-mails.  Seen here is the CarfraeHORN.  This UK made horn unit is claimed to give room filling sound with only four watts of power.  In fact we are talking all the way down to 32 Hz cleanly!  Using no crossover on the Lowther DX4 driver unit, the CarfraeHORN takes advantage of the tractrix contour because it is recognized as being the most musical.  The cabinet is made to high precision specifications and using continuous sections of birch laminate.

B&W Nautilus 801

  Like the 801 monitors before it, the new B&W Nautilus 801 is considered by some to be the ultimate in a classical recording studio monitor.  Using their Matrix enclosure technology which adds many cross bracing to insure a virtually non-resonant cabinet, this unit is extremely solid.  A 15" woofer gives deep yet tuneful bass with it's 4" voice-coil which is wound on a carbon fiber former.  The 6" woven Kevlar tweeter is used for its extreme lightness yet high rigidity.  The 801 uses a 1" aluminum-dome tweeter which has been improved upon from previous units to offer 6db higher sensitivity!  Overall frequency response is claimed as 29 Hz to 22 kHz (+-3db) and a sensitivity of 91 db/w/m.

BKS Speakers

  Handcrafted in Denmark, the BKS line use a hybrid of ribbon for the mids and highs while a dynamic driver cone woofer reproduces the lower frequencies.  Seen here is their entire line. The smallest speaker of the line, the "Supreme" 107 uses a R-C link crossover with impedance compensation using polypropylene capacitor and non-inductive resistor(s). The speaker to the right, the "Supreme" 128 uses all the above plus the Vifa-Premium Line woofer.  Their largest, top of the line model "Supreme" 175 uses all the above but with two woofers this time.


 

Assorted Klipsch Speakers

  Well known for their high-sensitivity speakers, Klipsch has over 50 years experience in their field!  Seen above are the Belle Klipsch (dark walnut), Heresy II (black), and La Scala (light oak).  While the Heresy is "only 96 db/w/ sensitive, the larger La Scala and Belle Klipsch are 104 db/w/m sensitive!  The La Scala also use the same "folded horn" woofer enclosure and driver compliment consisting of Klipsch's K-77-M tweeter, K-55-M midrange, and K-33-E woofer.  They also share the same frequency response claims as 45 Hz - 17 kHz (+- 5db).  Klipsch is one of the great American classics available worldwide today.

Utopish Utopiagraph

  The Utopish Utopiagraph is made from lauan plywood and teak internally.  The outer finish is their drop dead gorgeous golden teak oil.  Utopish makes the cabinet while you supply the two vintage Tannoy 15" drivers.  The rear wave is ported to fire out the sides of this enclosure to assist in lower frequency support.  This baby weights in at 108 kgs each (without the drivers) and the entire structure stands at a very tall 1750 mm high!


 

Symphony Master

  Classic speaker born again. Utopish by Utopia is a Japanese company which has been making enclosures for over 20 years.  In fact they offer over 70 different classic enclosures to their worldwide customers.  Seen above is their model Symphony Master which is made from pine board and then urethane finished.  These enclosures feature "Hall Tone Loading" and are optimized for Altec loudspeakers.  Weighing in at a whopping 93 kgs these are extremely solid cabinets!
