The new Magneplanar 1.7 is also a flat-panel design, 64.5 inches tall
and a mere 2 inches thick! The new speaker looks a little more
contemporary, thanks to its aluminum, wrap-around edge molding. The old
model was a two-way design, with a 48-inch-tall aluminum ribbon tweeter
and a 442-square-inch mid/bass panel. The Magneplanar 1.7 is a three-way
design, with a woofer, tweeter, and super-tweeter. The super-tweeter
comes in around 10,000 hertz and is said to produce wider dispersion and
better-resolved treble than the Magneplanar 1.6 did.
The other big difference is the Magneplanar 1.7 is a "full-range" ribbon design.
The ribbon terminology refers to the way the woofer, tweeter, and
super-tweeter drivers incorporate thin-film aluminum foil mounted on a
Mylar substrate, suspended in a magnetic field. Conventional tweeters
and woofers are "driven" in the center or edge by a voice coil, so the
surface of the tweeter or woofer is free to deform its shape as it makes
sound. The Magneplanar 1.7's woofer, tweeter, and super-tweeter's
entire surface area remains under full control by the signal it's
reproducing, so it can't change shape. Translation: it sounds clearer
and more lifelike than cone and dome driver designs.
