"Muscle and Beauty in One"
Small in size, big on sound, with a wonderful heart and full of passion for music. This is the compact two-way speaker AQ Passion Teen from Acoustique Quality.
Her heart is of Scandinavian origins and the best pedigree. Scan-Speak is true royal family in the world of drivers and the Passion Teen features the best from Scan-Speak, fitting her slender body. The tweeter is the latest in the series of 1” Illuminators. Membrane does not form a spherical cap, as usual, but in this case the membrane has the partial shape of a toroid. Centrally placed metal Phase plug improves cooling and guarantees outstanding flat frequency response +- 2 dB from 1 kHz to airy 30 kHz. Metal Faceplate features porous rubber that suppresses acoustic diffraction. Six neodymium magnets positioned in the AirCirc rear chamber createspermanent magnetic field.
6.5” Scan-Speak Revelator series of the same royal pedigree handles midrange and the bass. Paper membrane is sliced with irregular grooves and filled with proprietary damping material. This solution significantly reduces the possibility of standing waves on the membrane and membrane breakup. The suspension is low loss rubber SBR and allows extreme x-max up to 13 mm. The result is outstanding transfer of extremely low frequencies. The magnetic drive consists of a proprietary symmetric linear motor SD -1.
Passion Teen baffle was created through advanced 3D modeling and is produced on a five-axis CNC from a 50 mm HD MDF panel. Drivers are mounted with high tensile strength metric screws to optimal tension that unifies the driver and the baffle into one element. The loudspeaker enclosure is manufactured with a sandwich technology with an active BDS damping and non-reflective internal panels. With this advanced construction, the entire enclosure is incredibly rigid and eliminates resonances and the internal standing waves. Spatial location enables the acoustic axis directed to the seated audience, the transition zone between the drivers is phase correct and there is no diffraction.
The superiority of the driver’s internal crossover results in a first order that has theadvantage of minimal phase shift.
