Quantum Signature

High-end floorstanding speaker as 3-way bass reflex system

The Quantum Signature is impressive at first sight due to its sheer size. The speaker accommodates a total of six high-tech individual chassis in a high gloss MDF cabinet, which weighs in at 73 kg. The overall appearance of this exceptional transducer is predominantly shaped by three sumptuous 200 mm woofer chassis. The two 170 mm midrange drivers offer ideal properties in the critical vocal range. The new dome tweeter in the Signature speaker is positioned centrally in a D´Appolito configuration.

Removable protective fabric grille with optimum sound transmissivity and concealed magnet fastenings

Height-adjustable metal spikes included

High-quality internal Oehlbach® wiring

Klippel®-optimised overall design

Cabinet

Airflex ports with extremely large opening areas to guarantee best-possible bass coupling

Double-walled side panels with varying material thickness to reduce case resonances

Generous bracing inside the case with chassis support

Sturdy and low-resonance MDF case

Sturdy, MDF case with rounded sides and elaborate struts and decorative high-gloss front

Principle

3 way bass reflex, triple bass

Tweeter

Copper cap-optimised drive system for minimum distortion

f-max Signature tweeter with a particularly wide surround for optimised dispersion characteristics at frequencies above 20 kHz

Generous magnet ventilation with low natural resonance

Particularly lightweight cone construction consisting of semicrystalline polymer (PTFE) for maximum efficiency

Sturdy aluminium flange with optimised acoustic channels

Woofer / midrange

„Controlled Flexing Cone“: Cone geometry for controlled dispersion of bending waves in the midrange, and with it the capability to reproduce a greater bandwidth

Distortion-optimised magnet system with double induction rings and stray field optimisation

High cone rigidity ensured by inverse ceramic/aluminium dust caps for the woofer and midrange

Kapton voice coil to minimise eddy current loss, thereby ensuring minimal distortion of the midrange

Sophisticated voice coil ventilation for a particularly high degree of resilience

Generously vented die-cast basket for preventing turbulence and compression effects

Crossover

24 dB LKR topology with transformer core coils and audiophile PP capacitors

Crossover mechanically isolated from the case

Crossover on two separate circuit-boards to optimise use with bi-wiring
