Designing a bookshelf speaker is no easy task, the challenge being to reproduce low frequencies in a small cabinet volume. It is necessary to achieve the perfect synthesis of electronics, acoustics and cabinetmaking.
First of all, cabinet must be as rigid as possible and anti-vibration, which implies the use of high density materials combined with optimum machining precision. All our cabinetry is made for this purpose. The new KC100 is no exception to the rule. The interior volume of the speaker is carefully calculated as well as the dimensions of the tuning vent for each speaker used. The Bass Reflex solution was chosen, it increases the bass response and improves performance.
The loudspeakers used in the KC100 are made to specifications to rigorously achieve the desired result. The boomers have paper membranes treated for greater sound neutrality and the very pure copper voice coils are mounted on a kapton support. For greater smoothness and freedom from aggression, the tweeters have impregnated fabric membranes. The voice coils are cooled in ferrofluid. Despite the care taken in the cabinetry and the quality of our speakers, the end result will be determined by the filtering!
Advance Paris has developed a precise and rigorous filtering technique respecting the electrical and acoustic phase. The choice of the best components, air chokes, polypropylene capacitors, precision ceramic resistors, non-radiating positioning of the components between them and the implementation of judicious cut-off frequencies guarantee a sound result at the top.
Its incredible low frequency performance is amazing, especially considering account of its small size! Its balance and neutrality make it the ideal speaker for reproduce all kinds of music, moreover they are versatile and remain compatible with a majority of amplifiers, even of moderate power and this thanks to their good performance.
