Bache Audio 002AB Demo unit
Despite the popularity of wideband drivers, it is well known that they suffer from whizzer cone distortion, and weak bass. In our previous model, the Bache Audio 001AB, we addressed the coloration by removing the whizzer cone, and by adding a tweeter to supplement the upper frequencies, and a woofer to provide increased lower frequencies. While we were generally pleased with the result, we continued to do research and came to the realization that all wide band drivers, because of their light paper cone, have a deficiency in the range of 100- 500 Hz Sonically, this had the tendency to make instruments such as the piano, sound smaller than real life.
To address this issue, we are pleased to announce the release of the Bache Audio Model 002. The Model 002 has the same three drivers as its predecessor, but also includes a lower midrange/upper bass driver, making it a 4-way design.
