The new R Series is closer in design and technology to Blade, Reference and LS50 than it is to the 2011 R Series. The culmination of years of research and design, the new R Series will bring back the goose-bump inducing joy of music and home entertainment at a price point that was unattainable just a few years ago.
Reduced cabinet vibration from stiffened bracing and lossy joining of braces developed for LS and Reference
Reduced response diffraction with the much narrower cabinet profile
Improved directivity and response diffraction from the Shadow Flare originally introduced with Reference
Improved port design that reduces chuffing and turbulence which was introduced with LS and Reference
Bass drivers derived from the technology used with Blade
Brand new 12th Gen Uni-Q uses a channel gap to eliminate HF distortion and turbulence
12th Gen Uni-Q uses a decoupling MF driver to a more natural HF response and improved crossover control
Improved vented tweeter design provides more natural HF response and improved crossover control
