Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Plus One Woven-Glass-Fiber
Woofer Cones: The Plus One speakers use cones approximately 30% larger than
other speakers of the same size. This is accomplished by using a new basket
design and hi-roll surround. The Plus One design offers greater bass output and
a significant increase in efficiency.
Woofer Cones: This woven-glass-fiber material is very light and extremely
stiff, minimizing cone flex. This results in very low distortion and improved
Motor Structure: The new Kappas
use a Neodymium motor structure with an integrated heat sink. This design
provides a massive amount of energy while minimizing mounting depth and magnet
diameter. The integrated heat sink cools the motor structure efficiently, thus
increasing power handling while reducing distortion.
Edge Driven MMD Dome Tweeters:
Each speaker has an Edge-driven MMD (Metal Matrix Diaphragm) dome tweeter. The
benefit is increased power handling and reduced distortion at high output. This
technology also allows for better integration with the mid/woofer. The tweeter
has an adjustable output level, +0 dB (flat) and +3 dB.
SLIT High-Output Design: This
high output 2 ohm design extracts every watt from today's amplifiers and hi
powered receivers, increasing overall system output and efficiency (relative to
4 ohm speakers).
Crossovers: Kappa speakers include computer-optimized, voice-matched crossovers,
using audiophile quality air core inductors and polypropylene capacitors.
