Conceptualising the Floorstanding Speaker
In common with the Concept 20, its award-winning sibling, the Concept 40’s extraordinary soundstage, dynamics and sheer musicality is achieved by incorporating its bespoke drive units into a GelcoreTM Construction cabinet. This State-of-the-Art, ultra-low resonance and beautifully lacquered cabinet design allows the dual 125mm drive units and wide dispersion 25mm tweeter to perform at their very impressive best. The combination of high sensitivity for dynamics and increased bass extension for realism make the step up from bookshelf speakers, worthwhile.
Ultra-Low Resonance Cabinet Design
The Concept 40 uses GelcoreTM Cabinet Construction, where two layers of MDF, are separated by a bespoke, resonance absorbing, non-setting adhesive which converts the kinetic energy and disperses it as heat. This substantially reduces distortion and allows the individual drive units to deliver their optimal performance; a pure and uncoloured sound.
Simple to Drive, Simple to Position
With 90dB sensitivity and a nominal impedance of 8 ohms, the Concept 40 is easily driven by any good quality amplifier, providing effortless peaks and crescendos in music and movie soundtracks. Various locations for positioning the speaker in the listening room are catered for by providing a foam bung which can be inserted in the rear-mounted reflex port modifying the bass response to suit positioning against a rear wall or close to a corner.
Stunning to Hear, Stunning to See
These striking floorstanding loudspeakers are available in multi-layered lacquered black or white finishes. The elegant tripod stand allows the Concept 40 to achieve perfect rigidity and floor contact, which further enhances its performance. Even the speaker’s attractive brushed aluminium facia plate is not purely decorative. It’s part of an assembly, which clamps a butyl rubber sheet to the front panel to reduce cabinet resonance still further in the panel facing the listener.
