This floor standing version uses a mass loaded transmission line enclosure to provide deep powerful bass. Using the new Purifi PTT6.5 woofer provides very low distortion and high SPL.
1198 uses the SB Acoustics Satori TW29BN-B mounted in the ES horn flare geometry. The 40mm thick solid hardwood baffle has the horn itself machined into the baffle as one piece. This results in a clean contemporary look while allowing the horn geometry to fully wrap around to the side of the cabinet.
- By horn loading the tweeter we are able to control the off-axis coverage pattern so that it matches that of the woofer at the crossover point.
- The horn depth is 40mm which perfectly time aligns the tweeter to the woofer
- Distortion is reduced since the tweeter is not working as hard to produce the same output.
- The ES curvature will reduce edge diffraction off the speaker baffle edges.
