After the careful and time consuming creation of our new Flat-Spider-Cone coincident driver system, an appropriate partnering bass driver designed specifically for the demands of extended bass had to be created. For this process we again turned to both finite – element – analysis along with visiting our own patented Spider-Cone technology. The result is the creation of our entirely new patented 23cm ultra rigid NAWI cone. This new driver has extremely low mass while maintaining exceptional stiffness. By creating such a strong and low mass bass driver, we were then able to take full advantage of not only the highest grade crossover components, but also the purest crossover design employing a new proprietary, modified first order layout. This new crossover combined with our newly designed drivers offers the greatest phase coherency resulting in maintaining the greatest detail as well as offering greatest power and clarity in the lowest octaves. This further manifests itself in creating a reproduction of space that has thus far been absent from pedestal mounted loudspeakers.

The cabinet technology necessary to take advantage of these technical breakthroughs in driver and crossover design required further careful consideration. The separate top-unit enclosure is decoupled from the bass enclosure by a special high-tech, drawn aluminum swivel joint which allows optimum room tuning by enabling not only adjustments for rake, but also for toe-in. The construction of the top unit or Music Center shares the same internal volume and is sealed as is the Music Center of our larger model within the Klimt Series™, The Music.

Mated to this revolutionary driver system is a vented bass cabinet housing our newly developed bass driver. While initially striking, the fully decoupled Music Center allows the entire system to reach the absolute optimum in clarity and naturalness in sound by allowing careful optimization of both the bass cabinet while not compromising the mid and upper frequencies produced by the Music Center.
