AVANTGARDE ACOUSTIC

 
 


The DUO-series is the most significant product line within the Avantgarde AcousticTM portfolio. The 27 inch spherical midrange horn is a stringent symbiosis of low 170 Hz cut–off frequency, size and performance.

All horn drivers are equipped with Omega voice coils. With this high impedance technology we improve the interaction of mem- brane movement and amplifier signal, to realise the full potential of the spherical horn technology. The result is 18 ohms imped- ance combined with 107 dB system sensitivity – likely the highest figures in any production speaker.

Using Avantgarde Acoustic ́sTM CDC–technology, we precisely align the frequency response, sensitivity of the driver, the geometry
of the membrane and the air chamber at the horn throat to the response curve of the spherical midrange horn. This way the midrange driver has no passive filter components in the signal path – routing the music signal directly to the voice coil of the driver engine. Less components, less interactions, less friction ensuring more detail.

The tweeter of the DUO MEZZO XD Series is equipped with the patent pending Capacitor–Polarization–Circuit to bypass the struc- tural limitations of capacitors. By applying a polarization current to the conductors of a custom designed capacitor, we managed to eliminate the physical phenomenon known as “dielectric memory effect”.

The DUO MEZZO XD Series is complemented in the low frequencies with the active Short Basshorn subwoofer. By utilizing two powerful 12 inch drivers loaded to a short hornflare, the dynamic headroom of the bass has been significantly improved.

It is actuated by two 12 inch long–excursion drivers powered by
a 1.000 Watt amplifier. Frequency control in the low frequencies is managed by an advanced digital sound processor. The digitally con- trolled frequency crossover ensure a seamless integration of the bass response to the spherical horns. The DSP is equipped with
10 parametric equalizers to fine control the sound to the customers taste and to the acoustics of the room.
