The drivers can be seen as the engine of the loudspeaker, which must create the musicality that may be expected from the uncompromised design of the Exquisite Classique. Therefore the quality of the drivers is crucial for creating an ultra high-end sound.
Without a doubt the quality of the driver is guaranteed by using a Diamond tweeter as a standard in the Exquisite Collection. This high-frequency driver is a true technological wonder. The tweeter has a diamond cone which have been realised by the so called CVD process. With this process incredible stiffness is reached with a minimum of thickness of only 50 µm. Notice a human hair is in the range of 17 to 180 µm. The cone is the most essential part of the tweeter and because this cone is made of Diamond the tweeter is capable to create impressively pure high frequencies.
|High frequencies:||1-inch Diamond concave tweeter|
|Mid frequencies:||7-inch Omega 7 driver|
|Low frequencies:||12-inch Nomex-Kevlar driver|
The prime model of the Exquisite Collection has impressive performance for many years now, but still upgrades are done to improve the Exquisite Classique. In this way the Exquisite Classique has only reality as competitor.
