The elegant massive cabinet of the Exquisite Midi is made of high pressure laminate in a multi-layer construction. The cabinet is a piece of art in every way, from the use of perfect materials to construction and finish, all are exceptional.
Inside this cabinet the beating heart of this loudspeaker, the crossover, controls the musicality of the Exquisite Midi. Therefore the crossover can be seen as an orchestra conductor, which will turn the information received through the loudspeaker cable into a musical spectacle as if it was read from a music sheet. Hence both the orchestra conductor and the crossover will have to lead the group of musician or drivers respectively to a musical piece of art.
Kharma has mastered the art of retaining musical wholeness with the proprietary crossover technique used in the Exquisite Midi. This technique is seldom used by other manufacturers because of its complexity. This results in the Kharma crossover where simply is no gap in information.
The musicality you may expect from the Exquisite Midi is for an important part created by the drivers, which can be seen as the engine of the loudspeaker. The quality of the driver is therefore crucial to compete with reality.
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 x 1-inch Diamond concave tweeter|
|Mid frequencies:||1 x 7-inch Omega 7 driver|
|Low frequencies:||2 x 8-inch Nomex-Kevlar driver|
The uncompromised design of the Exquisite Midi has resulted in impressive technical specifications. This is especially stressed by the wide frequency spectrum the loudspeaker can produce. In this way this loudspeaker can create an ultra high-end sound.
|RMS Power:||250 Watt|
|Program power:||500 Watt|
|Frequency range:||23 Hz – 90 kHz|
|Nominal Impedence:||4 Ohm|
|Efficience 2,83V / 1m:||90 dB|
|Maximum SPL:||113 dB|
Although the Exquisite Midi is designed for a smaller space, it produces the same sound quality as the Exquisite Classique. For this reason the physical dimensions of the Exquisite Midi are more modest than those of the Exquisite Classique.
