Driver

1″ Aluminum Dome Tweeter:

  • FEA-optimized diffuser for airy and unveiled presentation
  • Aluminum dome for exceptional transient response

4.5″ Midrange Driver:

  • Polypropylene cone for excellent stiffness/mass ratio and pistonic behavior
  • Aluminum shorting ring to reduce gap inductance, lower distortion, and enhance high frequency response
  • Cast ABS-fiberglass composite basket ensures precision component alignment and excellent thermal transfer
  • Vented voice coil former minimizes air compression artifacts

Dual 6.5″ Woofers:

  • Long stroke motor and suspension for high output
  • Polypropylene cone for excellent stiffness/mass ratio and pistonic behavior
  • Aluminum shorting ring to reduce gap inductance, lower distortion, and enhance high frequency response
  • Cast ABS-fiberglass composite basket ensures precision component alignment and excellent thermal transfer
  • Vented voice coil former minimizes air compression artifacts

Crossover

  • 3.5-way crossover with premium-grade capacitors, air-core inductors and heavy-trace printed circuit boards
  • Tapered woofer array optimizes the transition to the midrange driver and reduces vertical axis lobing
  • Midrange-to-tweeter crossover:  2.1 kHz (12 dB/octave slopes)
  • Top woofer (Combined Woofer) to midrange crossover frequency:  350 Hz (12 dB/octave slopes)
  • Bottom woofer low pass frequency:  165 Hz (customized filter Q and slope)

Cabinet

  • Separate sealed midrange enclosure shifts standing waves beyond the driver pass band, improving sound quality
  • Separate woofer enclosures with optimized port tuning frequencies for smooth and accurate bass response
  • Acoustically transparent and FEA optimized grilles minimize diffraction
  • Chamfered front baffle and flush-mounted drivers reduce edge diffraction and improved on-axis high frequency response
  • FEA-optimized cabinet and bracing eliminates resonances

HiFiChoice “Recommended Products Award” Review: “A presentation that’s finely revealing, harmonically rich and rhythmically tight. The longer I listen to the Prime Tower, the more I appreciate its ability to walk the line between resolving detail and embracing the bigger picture. It’s a sound blueprint for long-term satisfaction.”

TheMasterSwitch Review: “Musical, with great articulation and detail. Felt wide and accommodating, with a very good spread of audio elements throughout the room. Dialogue was clear and precise. Sound effects had a pleasing snap to them. The highs felt detailed, with good dynamics. It’s the kind of sound we’d expect from speakers with another digit on the end.”
