compasInspired by the Rhythmic time signature patterns of flamenco music, the COMPÁS illuminates the fundamental structural elements & impulse in all musical genres. Primarily characterized by its dynamic & percussive rhythms, the Compás delivers a disciplined performance with high transient speed & clarity of image definition. This constant Q design generates critically damped driver resonances from octave to octave throughout the audio spectrum. With a Q of 0.5, ringing & transient smearing is eliminated.

Control networks within the Compás crossover are designed specifically to target high resolution & ambience retrieval under high current conditions. At its heart the Compás’s unique ceramic/honeycomb woofers deliver an authoritative low frequency response with unsurpassed transient accuracy, carefully blending with the highs for a “true to source” sound field reproduction. Proprietary low jitter circuitry clarifies the image boundaries to a high-resolution, suitable for professional monitoring, where microphone placement & phasing are critical.
Utilisation of the same diaphragm materials throughout the array adds to the continuity of harmonic structure in a crisp, seamless musical presentation devoid of stored energy; its rock solid imaging presented with a palpable density through accurate & colourful harmonic structures.
The Compas can also be ordered as a “Diamond version” this special option includes a Diamond tweeter as well as any remodelling required for the crossover
