3.5-way, low spurious vibration optimized suspension, stealth reflex para-aperiodic loading, staggered low frequency floor standing loudspeaker system.

Lute-shaped design, multilayer, constrained-mode damping, enclosure formed using hand-selected wood layers, quality graded and oriented for carefully optimized resonances control. sub-structural ribs are strategically placed for absolute rejection of spurious vibrations. Avional exo-skeleton clamp structure with a tuned mass damper inhibiting the residual resonances of the wooden structure.

1.1 in. (29 mm) ultra-dynamic linearity classic soft dome moving coil driver, Sonus faber vibration optimized mechanical interface.

7 in. (179 mm), ultra-dynamic linearity driver. CCAW/Kapton "eddy current free" voice coil. Dynamically linear magnetic field motor incorporating triple Kellog/Goeller rings. Real time air-dried and non-pressed cellulose fiber cone. Designed synergistically with its optimized "acoustic chamber".

 8.75 in. (220 mm), lightweight elastomer foam damped Aluminum/Magnesium alloy cone driver in an acoustically amorphous "stealth reflex" chamber. Long-throw motor system with a 1.5" controlled "eddy current" voice coil is implemented for high speed, performance and linearity. Special coaxial anti-compressor used designed to remove cavity resonance and distortions.

Non-resonant "progressive slope" design, optimized amplitude/phase response for optimal space/time performance. HC (Hot/Cold) topology on tweeter hi-pass. The response at the low frequency range is controlled for amplifier friendly performance. Dual staggered transfer function low frequency/room interface optimized filter. Highest quality component parts are used including Mundorf "Supreme" capacitors, Jantzen inductors. Crossover points are 80 Hz, 220 Hz, and 3.2kHz.

Questions for the seller
What is the "nickel" finish? They appear to be violin red.
It’s actually nickel-Avional, a high strength aluminum alloy of 4.75% copper, 0.5% magnesium and 1.4% silicon. It is used to halt vibration and resonance. It looks like a very smooth and elegant looking chrome, but it actually has the properties I mentioned. I hope I answered your question.
