All our 3-way and 31/2-way speakers use side-mounted woofers. This way, we can retain a relatively slim baffle – and thus keep the outstanding spatiality that our speakers are famous for – while providing ample bass by using large diameter woofers.
Unlike other manufactures we never use a single side-mounted woofer as this potentially introduces unwanted vibrations to the cabinet. Instead, our double-sided woofers work in phase with each other, i.e. they both move in and out at the same time.
In this ‘push-push’ configuration, the forces exerted on the speaker by the two woofers cancel each other out, keeping the cabinet perfectly free of any resonances that could harm sound quality.
