The TEMPO loudspeakers manage the feat of bridging the gap between unbelievable precision, realistic rendering and uncompromising neutrality like no TEMPO before. Equipped with the latest AUDIO PHYSIC developments and meticulously refined down to the detail, the TEMPO significantly raise the bar in terms of what you can now expect from a living-room friendly standing loudspeaker.
You can treat yourself to incomparable music enjoyment, true to the AUDIO PHYSIC motto: “Nothing but Music”.
The TEMPO almost appear fragile, and yet they skilfully conceal the refined engineering and intelligent design that make them exceptional loudspeakers in their class. Their slender, tall shape, gently sloped at an angle, and with rejuvenating side panels towards the front, reduces rogue, i.e. unwanted natural oscillations of the cabinet, along with standing waves in the interior of the loudspeaker. Without countermeasures, own vibrations and standing waves such as these can quickly cause an undifferentiated, sometimes even droning, sound. The design of the TEMPO combats these dangers at the source.
Two high-performance bass drivers, equipped with stiff aluminium membranes, are located precisely across from one another in the sides of the TEMPO . The location and switching of the chassis and the so-called “push-push technology” create a symmetrical distribution of force on the loudspeaker cabinet when the loudspeaker is in use. The complete facelift of the bass compartment makes a substantial contribution towards improving the impulse response. Instead of traditional insulation material for dampening the acoustic noise emitted into the loudspeaker interior, open-pore ceramic foam is deployed. With a pore ratio of over 85%, the dampening is now significantly more effective. The ceramic foam itself is extremely stiff and helps to further stabilise the loudspeaker cabinet. The result is a level of precision unto its own in this class.
The tweeters and midrange drivers are manufactured exclusively for AUDIO PHYSIC, their hybrid cone construction (HHC technology) is unique, combining the dampening characteristics of modern polymers with the stability and torsional stiffness of metal. Detrimental effects on sound due to interactions between the suspension system and the chassis basket are thus effectively eliminated. The outcome is a smooth and homogeneous acoustic pattern, from the fundamental tone all the way to the highest frequencies.
Like the tweeter, the mid-range driver of the TEMPO has its own compartment. In addition to the elaborate HHC basket construction, the mid-range driver is also equipped with a fixed phase plug made of metal. Depending upon the music material and volume, suspension systems tend to develop intense heat, which under circumstances can alter certain parameters. The metal phase plug is an efficient heat sink, also reducing compression effects behind the membrane. The new TEMPO features the latest generation of mid-range drivers, the HHCM III.
When it comes to the tweeters, the TEMPO features the latest chassis generation, HHCT III, which is also deployed in larger AUDIO PHYSIC loudspeakers.
The crossovers were also given a facelift, individual components selectively protected from micro-vibrations and the interior wiring was intuitively streamlined. Not least, the TEMPO is built with solid aluminium traverses, which are also used in the AVANTI . They guarantee easy handling and optimal contact to the floor. The result of these measures: significantly higher resolution, enhanced homogeneity and stunningly authentic musicality. The new TEMPO also featured magnetic fabric grills in black instead of normal fabric grills.
The TEMPO stylish traverses facilitate setup and guarantee a sure footing on any surface. Thanks to the M8 threads, the TEMPO can be easily equipped with the Audio Physic VCF II Magnetic plus feet. Their cutting-edge design enables a noticeably improved audio fidelity and reproduction authenticity. Not only that, the VCF II M8 Magnetic plus feet protect sensitive floors from scratches.
