The Bronze Six's compact cabinet supports two 6 1/2” C-CAM bass drivers operating in tandem with a 6 1/2” mid-range unit housed in a dedicated chamber. Matching drivers tuned for different roles are able to develop a tonally consistent sound-field involving seismic low bass and richly coherent mid-range detail, which rises in frequency to meet the illuminating resolution of our fabulous Bronze C-CAM tweeter.
The New Gold series benefits from Platinum’s extraordinary C-CAM® ribbon tweeter; for Silver to inherit Gold’s dished’C-CAM driver designs, and similarly to absorb the latest refinements in tweeter and driver engineering from the Silver project.
We’re using steel-grey C-CAM driver cones for a seamless blend with finishes. Invisible driver fixings and floating magnetic grills add to the sophistication.
All new C-CAM driver configurations give the tonal accuracy and consistency of a class leader. Harnessing driver technology developed for our acclaimed mid-market Silver models, New Bronze explodes the myth that high power handling with low distortion belongs exclusively to the expensive world of audiophile design.
The proprietary bass and mid drivers responsible for open, expressive and naturally rhythmic quality utilize a new type of ‘dished’ C-CAM cone, which employs the entire cone surface to radiate sound. Unbroken by the center pole-piece aperture of conventional driver designs, the cone is inherently more rigid and efficient while being less prone to break-up under high drive conditions, resulting in exceptional detail resolution and life-like tonality. Ingeniously, the driver’s voice coil is thermally coupled to the back of the cone, which draws heat away from the coil for better power handling and optimal operation at all volume levels.
Above the drivers, a new 25mm C-CAM Gold Dome tweeter extends each system’s frequency response to an ultra-sonic 30kHz, allowing the full reproduction of harmonic frequencies vital to the accurate reproduction of the decay of a piano string or the crash of a hi-hat. Within the tweeter, an innovative venting system allows air to flow outside the tweeter’s magnet assembly into a rear loading chamber, preventing air from being compressed at the back of the dome for lower distortion, reduced mechanical resonance, and improved damping. Structural improvements in dome geometry and drive mechanism have boosted accuracy and extension at the top end of the tweeter’s range as well.
Enhancing system performance is our ‘bolt-through’ driver mounting design. The drivers are individually mounted on a through-bolt which fixes at the back of the cabinet and tensions the driver at the front. This triple-action feature braces the cabinet structure for lower box coloration while removing the need for conventional front fixings, reducing unwanted driver/cabinet resonance and simultaneously boosting aesthetics.
The reflex loading found on all New Bronze models is of the HiVe®II variety, borrowed from the Gold range, which uses rifled port grooves to speed the air in and out of the cabinet for cleaner, more powerful bass and a superior transient response.
Signal integrity through the crossover is supplied by polypropylene film capacitors, air core and laminated steel core inductors.
