This Bronze bass, deeply provisioned and authentically proportioned, is re-tooled from the ground up to punctuate the sound of every system with stunningly natural bass transients. The sophisticated W10 features an exclusive trinity of uprated amplifier topology, powerful DSP processing and new long-throw driver design. Advanced switch-mode power conversion techniques, custom DSP tuning and a massive power reservoir combine to generate enormous dynamic headroom from the Class D power-pack, allowing the driver to drop low and punch hard without distortion. A down-firing 10” ABR (Auxiliary Bass Radiator) ensures that the W10 delivers an incredible 6dB greater SPL at 40Hz. Enjoy the W10’s prodigious bass energy with pre-set EQ settings for music, movie or impact.
For the first time we’re using spectacular steel-grey C-CAM driver cones for a seamless blend with finishes, available in Black Oak and Walnut. Invisible driver fixings and floating magnetic grills add to the impression of streamlined sophistication, lending the look and feel of a premium range.
The 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, say, the decay of a piano string or the crash of a hi-hat. Within the New Bronze 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, first devised for our Radius series models but now adopted by all our speaker ranges. The drivers are individually mounted on a through-bolt which fixes at the back of the cabinet and tensions the driver at the front. Cleverly 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 (excluding Centre, FX and W10) 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.
Best possible signal integrity through the crossover is supplied by polypropylene film capacitors, air core and laminated steel core inductors.
