Vienna Acoustics Beethoven Concert Grand Loudspeakers
Scale, power and grandeur are all conferred by its name. As with all models in the Grand range, the composer name is selected based on the scale, complexity and power of performance for which they are best known. The term Concert Grand, like the piano of the same designation, refers to its ability to deliver this level of performance in large concert halls and music rooms.
The new 3-way Concert Grand delivers
far more than just power and scale. The careful listener will delight
in the lucidity and clarity of the all-important middle ranges where
virtually all instruments find their tonic origins.
Base: Optimized aluminum spike set included.
All bass and midrange drivers benefit from a new inverted rubber surround design and formulation that constitutes a breakthrough in no loss damping of cone edge resonances.
The new 6 midrange driver benefits from a reformulation of Vienna Acoustics proprietary XPP cone material. Combining TPX, the unique thermoplastic used in all XPP cones, with three polypropylene based synthetics, achieves maximum inner damping, ultra-low mass, and precise control over cone density and rigidity. Dubbed X3P (X3P because of the three additional polymers in its composition) this new cone material allows the driver to provide an extraordinarily wide bandwidth, while possessing a level of inner detail, quietness, and control that is truly remarkable. All bass and midrange drivers benefit from a new inverted rubber surround design and formulation that constitutes a breakthrough in no loss damping of cone edge resonances.
The new tweeter was developed by Vienna Acoustics, in conjunction with Scan Speak, resulting in greater resolution of the subtlest of high frequency impulses while maintaining the midrange warmth and clarity for which Vienna Acoustics has been renowned.
A completely new linear crossover layout, with the copper circuit paths arranged in the direction of electron flow, takes into account the potential for sympathetic and parasitic interactions among crossover components that may inject unwanted noise and distortions while allowing for more direct and efficient transfer of signal to the drivers which leads to a greater level of detail and purity.
New proprietary cabling, consisting of large scale solid copper conductors, with each cable pairing precisely twisted a prescribed number of turns for the particular length of each cable so that any noise injection through the wiring harness is avoided.
