AMAZING dynamic open sound that compares easily to Magnepan's best but with more room loading bass.
Anyone who has Nola speakers will know they are exceptional in sounding like music.
These Vipers are especially good in the midrange and are surprising every time in how instruments sound like real music.
They have an ability to load the room with a beautiful soundstage that is huge, much like Magnepans or other good planar speakers.
Also because of the sealed dual woofer design they produce deep tight room filling bass that is musical at the same time.
If I ever have another music system it will be definitely Nola speakers again.
The Viper IIA uses two newly designed 220mm cast-frame bass drivers with aluminum cones. These bass drivers operate in perfect piston mode over their whole operating range. The first breakup mode is at 5000 Hz while in the system; the woofer is operated to only 500 Hz. This performance greatly reduces distortion and coloration throughout the full range. Each bass driver is mounted in a separate sealed chamber. Each chamber is a different size in order to provide an improved speed-bandwidth product and a smoother room LF response. The dual woofers provide improved room loading throughout the lower midrange and mid-bass with increased power handling. Both woofers are run in parallel for maximum amplifier control. These bass drivers are "trickle down" versions of the cast magnesium units used in the Nola Grand Reference.
All of the loudspeakers in the Viper series feature open baffle midrange and high frequency transducers that are deployed in a 45 degree mirror-imaged array (the same as the Grand Reference) to provide more realistic image sizes while retaining excellent image focus. The new midrange driver, originally developed for Pegasus, features a cast frame, tri-laminate 110mm cone driven by a premium Alnico magnet system for a natural reproduction of mid-band frequencies which cannot be duplicated when using conventional magnets.
The high frequency transducer is a 25mm magnesium / aluminum dipole dome driver. The dipole dome sounds much more natural as opposed to using a separate tweeter mounted in the rear. The dipole rear wave is coherent with the front wave since the same diaphragm generates it.
Selling my entire system.
Will have wooden crates made at good price from my friend who has business shipping fine art.Cost to be split,buyer keeps the crates.$130 USD or $180 Canadian
