Like the Classic 15, the Classic 12 presents itself as a loudspeaker that excels in its class through technical innovations, intelligent detail solutions, and elegant styling, while sonically achieving an impressive degree of maturity. The results you will find highly convincing.
With their front panels made from high-gloss glass, the speakers look both elegant and timeless at the same time. The enclosure is made out of MDF, laminated with high-quality real wood veneer. Thanks to this remarkably smart construction, the Classic 12 easily accesses deep lows and creates the authenticity that makes music emotionally perceptible.
The two and a half-way system operates on a ventilated volume. The reflex port radiates into the space between enclosure and plinth, allowing for a uniform coupling to the room. The set-up therefore is uncomplicated.
The Classic 12’s technological maturity expresses itself through its driver technology. For the first time, the world’s unique Audio Physic dual basket design is being used also in the Classic series. This groundbreaking design drastically reduces the mechanical transmission of micro-vibrations between drivers and enclosure.
Woofer and mid-woofer are both equipped with cones made of glass fibre fabrics. However, surround, motor and voice coil are optimized for their respective frequency spectrum in order to achieve clear playback fidelity. The midrange driver has got a fixed phase plug to improve the ventilation of the oscillating system. The so important midrange clearly benefits from these efforts, because within this particular frequency range the human ear is especially sensitive and immediately detects tonal discolourations. Classic 12 are capable in reproducing tonal colours and human voices as natural and concise as previously only known from higher priced speakers.If you prefer the glass version you are right with the Classic 15, same model, different style.
The oscillating system of the Classic 12’s tweeter is elaborately ventilated as well, so that the soft dome made by a German specialist company always finds ideal operating conditions even under heavy load. Thanks to the powerful motor and the low self-resonance, the tweeter achieves exemplary signal integrity far beyond the audible range. A small horn-shaped sound guide surrounds the actual dome and ensures a seamless transition between mid and high frequencies. So even outside of the so-called sweet spot you will be able to enjoy a relaxed musical experience.
And of course, the Classic 12 can also optionally be equipped with the modern VCF II Magnetic M8 plus feet. These feet guarantee perfect decoupling from the floor and protect sensitive surfaces as well.
