This pair of ClairAudient Model 2+2 speakers are in EXCELLENT condition. They sound AWESOME and cosmetically look EXCELLENT. Please examine the photos as they are part of the description. These 2+2’s were owned by the designer, John McDonald and have some very minor cosmetic imperfections.

ClairAudient speakers are designed and manufactured by Audience Audio.

The MSRP for a pair of Model 2+2’s was $6000.

These Model 2+2’s will be double boxed and include their front and rear grilles.

Audience's John McDonald and the late Richard Smith approached the challenges of a cross-overless design in a different way. Rather than an electrostatic element, Audience developed a novel moving-coil driver with the performance characteristics they wanted.

The Audience A3S is a 3" metal-cone driver unlike any other. It starts with a patented dual-gap motor assembly that includes an oversize neodymium magnet structure and cooling gaps similar to those seen in high-powered subwoofers. The cone itself is made of a proprietary aluminum-magnesium alloy chosen for its stiffness and low mass, and anodized for a more consistent surface finish.

Even a driver 3" in diameter will become very directional above 4kHz or so, so Audience decoupled the drive-unit's dustcap with a compliant mounting so that it acts as a pseudo-tweeter, with an appropriately small radiating diameter.

The result is a driver with very impressive specs. With a moving mass of only 2.5gm - the A3S is indeed light and fast. The combination of its light, stiff diaphragm and segmented, oversize magnet produces a linear, very pistonic response with 12mm of usable excursion, enough to move a lot of air.

The driver has exceptional power handling, with less than 1dB of compression at 95dB. The A3S's native impedance is said to be fairly high, which means that multiple units can be combined and still present an amplifier with a manageable load.

The ClairAudient 2+2 is a bipole speaker, but isn’t a dipole; its rear- and forward-firing drivers are in phase with each other. The 2+2 has four A3S drivers—hence the model name.

The 2+2 augments the low-frequency output of the four AS3 drivers with a 6" passive radiator, mounted on one of the enclosure's sidewalls. Each pair is supplied as mirror-imaged samples, and the 2+2s are intended to be set-up with the two passive radiators facing each other.

Design & Specs: One-way, crossoverless, stand-mounted loudspeaker. Drive-units: four 3", proprietary, aluminum alloy-cone units (two fire forward, two fire rearward); one 6" passive radiator (fires to the side facing the other speaker). Cabinet: 13-layer Baltic Birch with CNC-machined aluminum front and rear plinths. Nominal impedance: 4 ohms. In-room sensitivity: 90dB/2.83V/m. Maximum continuous output per pair: 110dB. Maximum RMS continuous power per speaker: 100W.
