The new SR1, a four-way floorstanding system is designed to harness the classic "mass controlled piston" model. The SR1's drivers are the best available, and employ Nextel-coated cones and a Crescendo tweeter from the renowned Seas of Norway.
The SR1 uses dual enclosures. A large bass enclosure
with ten-inch and eight-inch drivers handles the bottom four octaves, and an adjustable smaller enclosure carries the midrange and the tweeter. The Seas of Norway drivers are complemented by a set of crossover
and equalization electronics created to elicit the drivers' best performance.
The SR1 is available as a bi-amplified or quad-amplified system, complete with active crossover filters. Upgrades and conversions between the systems are easily accomplished, and the speaker is compatible with a wide range of power amplifiers. The impedance does not dip below 4 ohms, and the sensitivity is approximately 90 dB for a 2.8V input.
