The ultra-compact speaker from DIAMOND 12 Series features the same technology as its larger siblings, but is designed for hi-fi systems with a small footprint, or even as a high performance, compact satellite speaker in home theater systems.

 

The DIAMOND 12.0 is provided with a high-quality 100mm (4 ") KlarityTM driver software with a bass reproduction which are small footprint surpasses, while the superior 25mm (1") is woven polyester dome tweeter, the high-frequency open and smoothly let reach.

Characteristics

Clarity focuses

NEW Klarity ™ -conusmateriaal composed of a blend of polypropylene and mica adds firmness to reducing fl Exing, making a lightweight cone is possible with high stiffness, low coloration and lightning fast response.

 

Low color and expression

The Klarity ™ cone is provided with a layer absorbing edge, whereby both a low staining as an expressive dynamics is reached. Through much to add various conical shapes to simulate ribs and for further reinforcement, a flat response curve was achieved without resorting to take to a strong damping surround, so that the ideal balance was found.

 

A magnet of forces

An accurately manufactured magnet system with an aluminum compensating ring in order to minimize the effect of variations in inductance of the voice coil during the run. This contributes to the absence of distortion and intermodulation generated by the "motor system".


A voice coil outside the class

The voice coil is wound on a powerful coil of epoxy / fiberglass, which is very unusual in loudspeakers of this price level. This has the advantage that it adds no eddy currents and results in a greater load-bearing capacity than an aluminum bobbin, while it is also much more solid than the Kapton-type associated with the price range.

 

DIAMOND highlights

The dome of 25 mm is made from a textured polyester film with a high-loss coating to be open and uniformly extended to deliver high frequencies. The magnet system and the front plate are optimized for wide spread and uncompressed behavior. The front plate is flat and allows the dome exposed as much as possible; only a very short tube on the front plate compensates for the acoustic load and improves the SPL (sound pressure level) measurement.

 

A cross-over style
The crossover network uses an acoustic topology LKR 24dB. This includes luchtkerninductoren of the type more common in high-end speakers, selected because they produce the lowest distortion of any inductortypes. Because the resistance of the coil is higher than a standard laminated steel or ferrietkerninductor, is the magnetic structure of the mid / bass driver modified in order to compensate, resulting in a quick, clean bass without distortion through the inductor.


Firmly and fairly
The housing of the Diamond 12.1s at the back is exactly dimensioned that the internal volume in harmony works with the drive system to deliver the desired sonic result. A multi-layer sandwich construction ensures that the 'sound' of the cupboard is muted in no time. Even the resonant properties of the glue between the layers is measured to determine the optimum combination.

Scrape
Inside the cabinet, Intelligent Spot Bracing connects opposite walls with a special shape of the wooden bracket to achieve optimum reduction of the cabinet resonance. These brackets are precisely modeled by means of computers simulation to improve the usual 'fihip of eight bracket, which can transfer the resonance from one wall to another.

The ultra-compact speaker from the Diamond 12 series has the same technology as its larger brothers and sisters, but is designed for hi-fi systems with a small footprint, or even as a high-quality, compact satellite speaker in home cinema systems.

 

The Diamond 12.0 is equipped with a high-quality 100 mm (4 ") Klaryytm driver with a bass display that can be exceeding its small footprint, while the superior 25 mm (1") woven polyester dome tweeter open the high frequencies open and smoothly.

Low color and expression

The Klarity ™Conus is equipped with a low-damping edge, so that both low staining and an expressive dynamic is achieved. By simulating many different cone forms and add ribs for further reinforcement, a flat response curve was achieved without resorting to a strongly damping surround, so that the ideal balance was found.

 

A magnet from forces

An accurately manufactured magnet system with an aluminum compensation ring to minimize the effect of variations in induction during the course of the speaking coil. This contributes to the absence of distortion and intermodulation generated by the 'motor system'.


A speaking reel outside this class

The speaking coil is wrapped on a powerful coil of epoxy / fiberglass, which is very unusual in speakers of this price level. This has the advantage that it does not add swirl streams and produces greater load capacity than an aluminum coil, while it is also much stronger than the Kapton type that belongs to this price range.

 

Diamond highlights

The dome of 25 mm is made from a woven polyester foil with a high-loss coating to deliver open and even extended high frequencies. The magnet system and the front plate are optimized for broad distribution and uncompressed behavior. The front plate is flat and exposes the dome as much as possible; Only a very short tube on the front plate compensates the acoustic load and improves the SPL (sound pressure level) measurement.

 

A crossover of style
The Crossover network uses an acoustic Lkr 24db topology. This includes air core inductors of the type that occurs more often in high-end speakers, which have been selected because they produce the lowest distortion of all inductor types. Because the resistance of the coil is higher than a standard laminated sampling or ferrite core inductor, the magnetic structure of the MID / BASS driver is modified to compensate, resulting in a fast, clean bass without distortion by the inductor.
