The AQ Labrador series from Acoustique Quality is not new to the AQ lineup. On the contrary, it is a very popular stalwart now using the most recent technological and manufacturing advancements. New construction details and brand new drivers are at the heart of the thoroughly updated Labrador series; what remain are the popular model types. Vifa and Peerless mid-bass drivers were replaced by much higher quality Scan-Speak drivers with cast aluminium frames and asymmetrically shaped cones.
A properly set up Home Theater cannot exist without a dedicated center channel. AQ brings in Labrador 176 MKIII high quality dedicated two-way loudspeakers with a D’Appolito baffle arrangement and ported design. This design delivers precise directional characteristics and allows for truly seamless home theater integration. The baffle is a proprietary sandwich construction with flush mounted drivers eliminating edge diffraction. Drivers are Scan-Speak, a pair of mid-woofers with carbon fiber cone joining efforts in the enclosure. 1” Vifa textile dome tweeter guarantees excellent directional characteristics of high frequencies.
Precise second order crossover and internal wiring uses point to point technique and is directly soldered to the contacts on the transducers and terminals, eliminating the possibility of contact resistance. Due to its small depth, Labrador 176 MKIII can be placed on walls in close proximity to flat screens. Thanks to the flawless execution of these highly accurate cinema loudspeakers, actors sound as if they’re right in front the viewer/listener.
