Townshend Audio Maximum Ribbon Supertweeters are designed to extend the frequency response of your loudspeakers to 100kHz.
Adding the Super Tweeter to your audio system allows you to experience the advantage of the extended frequency response delivered by the new digital audio formats (DVD-A, DVD-V containing 96/24 stereo PCM audio, and SACD). This gives a fuller more natural performance with greater detail and rhythmic which fully utilizes the 30kHz plus frequency response previously only available from high-quality vinyl reproduction.
Another bonus is that other formats are greatly enhanced. Just as a sub woofer fills in the bottom end, Maximum Supertweeters fill in the top end, making music sound more real. All Instruments even double basses take on an extra clarity that is neither bright nor brash. In fact the sound is both clearer and smoother. The really surprising thing is that when the tweeters are played alone, one can barely, if at all, hear a thing. Remarkably, however, all listeners - even, those having no sine wave sensitivity above 10kHz - experience the same enhancement when the Supertweeters are engaged, describing the sound of their hi-fi systems as ‘more natural’ and comfortable to listen to.
Output can be set to suit speakers with sensitivities from 80dB to 110dB, adjusted in steps on the rear. Other features include banana plug terminals, copper conductors, matching transformer windings, aluminium ribbon along with deep cryogenically treated (DCT) wiring for unrivalled fidelity. Embodying super-powerful neodymium magnets and an ultra thin eight micron pure aluminium ribbon, the Maximum Supertweeter offers outstanding performance in an easy to drive, compact package. The low frequency -3dB point of the first order crossover is set at 20Khz. Output may be set to suit speakers with sensitivities ranging from 80dB to 110dB, adjusted in steps by an seven position switch on the rear.
The Maximum Supertweeters can be connected directly across the output of amplifiers up to 350W or in line directly to the speaker. An automatically resetting fuse prevents ribbon damage in the event of overload. They are best placed centrally on top of existing speakers. These are the only super tweeters on the market to be fitted with cable, and in fact they include very high quality Isolda DCT stranded Litz cables for ultimate fidelity. Pressure relief vents in the sides of the case are provided to allow the air pressure on the ribbon to equalize in the event of sudden pressure changes.
The Maximum Supertweeter may be connected directly across the output of amplifiers up to 350W. An automatically resetting fuse helps prevent ribbon damage in the event of overload. The Maximum Supertweeters are best placed centrally on top of your existing speakers. The Supertweeters are supplied as standard with 1.5m of Townshend Isolda impedance matched, EDCT Litz cable, terminated with gold-plated 4mm banana connectors.
