Spirit 2 is a wallspeaker with best acoustical properties in modern design. Due to its manageable size, it integrates perfectly into your living area. Despite the small cabinet, it's sound reproducing abilities are astonishing. The silk dome tweeter in waveguide execution ensures transparent and finely detailed heights while the mid/bass driver uses it's excellent abilities to reproduce voices in a balanced and natural way. So Spirit 2 is not only an excellent choice for fine stereo systems but also as center and surround speaker in a multichannel setup. This allround talent masters every disciplin with bravura and plays with unexpected pleasure.
The silk dome tweeter in waveguide execution which is used for the Spirit 2 is the result of years of research and further development in our own laboratory. This tweeter is customized for the Spirit series and thus fits perfectly to the mid/bass driver. That driver is also an own development and features an excellent stiffnes-weight-ratio which provides a nearly ideal impulse response. Thus both the voice reproduction as well as the deep bass are very natural and accurate.
On the backside of Spirit 2 there is a jumper located which can be used to adjust the tweeter level to the prevailing room acoustics and the personal preferences. This room tuning possiblity is helpful especially in modern reverberant surroundings since the tweeter level can be reduced and thus create a more balanced sound.
Even though Spirit 2 features a massive effort in the construction of its cabinet, this is barely visible. The front is made of 25mm thick MDF and the sides of 18mm of the same material. Due to these measures, internal resonances can be reduced to an absolute minimum and further minimized by the special damping material which is used. Without these resonances, Spirit 2 plays with highest precision and accuracy.
Spirit 2 is available in matte black as well as matte white. Both colours are applied in a multilayer paint which awards the wallspeaker a very valuable aesthetics. In combination with the classical yet modern construction, it is easy to integrate Spirit 2 in basically every living area.
The gold plated screw terminal guarantees an optimum lock for your speaker cables. Thus a safe connection and best signal transmission can be ensured. In addition the terminal contains the jumper for the adjustment of the tweeter.
The tweeter of the Spirit series is a 25mm silk dome which has already proven its great abilities concerning its power handling and impulse response. It is driven by a high performance magnet system to optimize the sensitivity, dynamics and power handling. The cooling is provided by a low viscosity ferro fluid and a high power alloy voice coil made of aluminum and copper. Due to the waveguide technology the relative SPL capacity and sensitivity increases which leads to a minimized distortion both in high and low playback volume. The waveguide helps further to balance the dispersion in a perfect way to give a similar sound character independent of the angle. Furthermore, the waveguide allows a lower crossover frequency which makes the dispersion pattern of the mid/bass driver match the pattern of the tweeter. Thus, the overall dispersion is perfectly balanced and controlled. The dome itself has a built-in protection against damages and finds back to its original shape after a gentle push. To ensure a stiff and stable connection to the cabinet, the front is made out of 5mm thick massive aluminium covered with rubber to dampen resonances.
The mid/bass driver originates our own development laboratory and is customized to fit the Spirit speakers perfectly. Its membrane consists of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) and a long fiber pulp mixture in a special sandwich construction to even further increase its stiffness. Due to the lightweight materials, the cone provides an extraordinary stiffness-weight ratio and reduces resonances effectively. The spider is made of a mixture of cotton with nomex fiber. To ensure a nearly perfect impulse response, a specially developed and extremely strong magnet system is used. Its linearity provides a long stroke without compression and enables the speaker to handle a wide frequency range. Thus, the speaker can perform any stroke with highest accuracy. The voicecoil wire is made of a high temperature alloy of aluminium and copper to ensure an effective heat dissipation. To further avoid any edge resonances, a specially customized butylrubber surround is used.
The ornate frequency crossover ensures a perfect transition between the drivers. Thus the frequency crossover as well as the phase transition are optimized to provide maximum listening pleasure. The high class capacitors and low impedance coils ensure a perfect signal transmission. To further minimize any unintended influences, the internal cables consist of high purity copper which reduces the transmission resistance.
Since every room is unique from an acoustical point of view, the speakers of the Spirit series are equipped with tuning possibilities. There is a jumper located at the terminal of the speaker which can be used to adjust the tweeter level to the prevailing acoustics and the personal preferences.
