Reference Series Model 102 (1986-90)

Reference Series Model 102 (1986-90)
 
Model 102 with its dedicated KUBE active low level equaliser responded to the need for a compact system with very high sound quality devoid of the usual restrictions in sensitivity, bass extension and maximum loudness capability. The new KUBE allowed a combination of these parameters that would not be possible with conventional passive systems.
Ideal for locations where space is at a premium, the hybrid dividing network technique creates the character of a full sized design with little compromise in power handling, sensitivity or loudness capability. Low colouration is maintained by the use of a newly developed 165mm bass/midrange unit with polypropylene cone, coupled with the established T33 fabric domed tweeter.
