Clarity Affords focus
NEW Clarity cone material, which was made from a blend of polypropylene and mica adds sturdiness to the model to reduce flexing, to enable a lightweight cone with high rigidity, low colouration and lightning-fast response.
The DIAMOND 12.1 features a high-performance 120mm Clarity driver for exceptional timing and refined bass. The outstanding 25mm woven polyester dome tweeter delivers open and smoothly extended high frequencies.
Low Colour and Expression
The Clarity cone is fitted with a low-damping surround, which gives both low colouration and expressive dynamics. As by simulating many different kinds of cone shapes and adding ribs, more support is provided, a flat curve was achieved without restoring to a high damping surround, thereby striking the ideal balance.
A Magnet Of Forces
A precision-made magnet system with an aluminium compensation ring to minimise the effect of variations in inductance as the voice coil travels. This contributes to a lack of distortion and intermodulation generated by the motor system.
