Design know-how reaches new levels of sound performance in Illuminator products. Powerful neodymium motors with under-hung voice coil configuration serve as uniting design elements. They provide large linear excursion capability. What’s more, an extensive use of SD (symmetric drive) copper caps ensures the lowest possible distortion throughout the excursion range of the speaker.
The Illuminator tweeters are built on the heritage of the renowned Revelator D29 and R29. The compact size is one of the key elements of the Illuminator tweeter design. This small size is employed without compromising sound quality, either.
The compact design also provides a high degree of flexibility within design options for our customers. The sound quality of these tweeters is fully comparable to the renowned Revelator designs, no matter if the music is played at high or low listening levels.
The Illuminator midrange and woofers are based on compact under-hung motor systems with large neodymium ring magnets. The patent-pending motor offers a very long linear excursion, along with a very high force factor. The top plate is shaped to guide the backside airflow around the motor. Finally, the open cast aluminium chassis design of the driver is virtually free from compression.
During the design phase, extreme care and attention has been put into providing midrange clarity beyond anything previously available on the market. It takes place independent of power input, and even at very high excursions.
The cone is designed for maximum stiffness and damping. The midwoofers also feature a constrained layer paper cone design. The stiff and robust cone handles high power with ease. This assures that details transferred through the motor system are converted into undistorted sound. Transparency, details and precision at any input power are key words when describing the sound quality of the Illuminator designs.
Regarding the midrange units, a focus on maximum transparency, details, and precision gave birth to a new one-piece paper cone design with integrated dust cap and a coated foam surround. Careful design of the cone, its shape, and attachment to the voice coil means that this transducer provides the best midrange sound quality available on the market.
