    The Gold 300 is a three-way floor-standing loudspeaker comprising twin 6.5" bass drivers, a single 4" mid-range driver and a high frequency ribbon transducer. With impressive drivers, they have the power delivery and scale required to fill the largest rooms with jaw-dropping dynamics and the finest musical detail. Extending from below 30Hz to over 60kHz, its frequency range is among the widest available, regardless of price.

    OPTIMIZED TWEETERS 

    The Gold series ribbon is derived from the globally acclaimed Platinum C-CAM ribbon transducer. It’s identical to the GX ribbon but by improving production tolerances even further, the new model offers a consistently more open and transparent sound. The ribbon’s fabulously efficient wide-band design reproduces the authentic tonal character of frequencies beyond 60kHz. 

    LATEST GENERATION RST BASS DRIVERS 

    Tuned by FEA tools, the bass units utilize an evolved version of the dimpled RST cone surface introduced on the Gold GR and GS ranges. It takes the form of a continuous radiating dish devoid of the central voice coil aperture. Instead, a longer voice coil and larger motor sit behind the cone in a more efficient drive assembly, offering greater drive force, longer excursions and lower distortion, producing cleaner, more extended and accurate bass definition. Back-to-back listening tests have demonstrated that across all four stereo models, Gold sounds more open and dynamic.

    BOLT-THROUGH DRIVER FIXINGS 

    Single bolt-through driver fixings have the dual effect of improving cabinet rigidity while further reducing vibration at the driver/cabinet interface. Drivers are mounted on a single tensioned through-bolt, which is secured to the back of the cabinet. The bolt acts as a rigid cabinet brace to reduce box coloration and removes the need for conventional driver fixing, effectively decoupling the driver and front baffle to eliminate a source of unwanted resonance. 

    ENCLOSURE 

    Each enclosure is rigid and curved in nature. The cabinet is aided by radial bracing and bolt-through driver fixings, which eliminate unwanted vibrations and internal standing waves. Gold’s HiVe II reflex port is shaped to have the same effect on air flow as a gun barrel on a bullet. Rifled grooves inside the port help to accelerate the flow and reduce turbulence, so air moves in and out of the port more efficiently for a faster more dynamic bass response. 

    For added stability the die-cast alloy base plinths of the floorstanding models and the dedicated ‘Gold’ speaker stand provide a solid foundation for superior acoustics, enhanced by hand-milled spikes. Non-slip rubber pads are supplied to protect wood floors. 

    NEW GRILL DESIGN 

    Gold’s magnetically-fixed ‘floating’ cloth grill replaces the full-length metal grill of its Gold GX predecessor. On floor standing models, more of the cabinet’s luxurious grain-matched depth of finish is exposed and the design offers a classier, more discreet look, enhanced by a brushed aluminum badge. 

    CROSSOVERS 

    Comprising high quality polypropylene lm capacitors, air core and laminated steel core inductors, individual driver crossovers are mounted on a dedicated panel accessible from the underside of each speaker. The adjacent speaker terminals are gold plated to maintain signal integrity and contact reliability. All Gold speakers are wired internally with Pure ow® Silver cable.
