Carbon Fiber Cabinets with aluminum bracing designed to reduce cabinet vibrations to near zero, for clarity on par with electro static speakers. "Both male and female voices are reproduced with stunning clarity and yet without any hint of etched irritability. There was absolutely no harshness at all.”
Drivers all manufactured in house with a midrange that really does cover the midrange from 400Hz up to 5000kHz and gives real authority to cello's, bassoons and male voices.
Sweet Silk tweeters re-enforced with carbon fiber to extend high frequencies.
“Tonally the balance was spot on, very neutral and natural, without particular emphasis on any one region. It was very smooth from top to bottom and listening to well recorded piano was a delight. The Wilson Benesch Semisphere tweeter and Tactic II drivers are obviously well integrated and are complimented by optimized crossovers with minimal phase distortion.”
“Probably the standout feature of the Vectors is the dynamics and lack of box coloration particularly in the bottom registers. I lined up “Use Me” by Junior Wells, which is a really funky take on the song that Bill Withers wrote but Grace Jones made popular on her “Nightclubbing” album. Junior and his band really get on down with this track. The track really has swagger and the Vector has no problem connecting with the music and passing it on with great alacrity. The soul funk bassist Willie Weeks has some tasty riffs and frankly I just wanted to turn it up and revel in the bass extension and overall musicality.”
“So it was with a generous helping of volume that I discovered that Wilson Benesch have done an extraordinary job of creating a loudspeaker that will play loud and cleanly, at levels that lesser engineered speakers may be starting to experience distress or even failure. There was no artificial compression, no overhang, no sudden lack of spatial information, just truckloads of clean punch and snap, as needed and as much as is desired.”“This makes the Vector a special speaker indeed. I’m sure that the carbon fibre & aluminum composite enclosure contributes to the overall transparency and lack of artifacts in the sound.
“The Vectors have the ability to throw out a very large soundstage that extends far beyond the speakers themselves. I was a little worried that having the tweeter below my ear level might truncate the height of the soundstage, but that was absolutely not the case. It filled the entire room with floor to ceiling detail, which is often the hallmark of much larger panel speakers.”
