Quantum 1005

Floor-standing loudspeaker, 2-way bass reflex with double bass


The Quantum 1005 is the smaller of two floor-standing loudspeakers in the Quantum 1000 series and features everything that characterises an audiophile high-end loudspeaker: timeless and noble design, absolute top-quality workmanship down to the final detail and highly precise balanced sound with uncompromising neutrality.


The sound transducer is available in either a white or black high-gloss finish with applied walnut side panels. The impressive case design that uses solid MDF panels and double-walled side panels directly and effectively minimises unwanted resonances. Magnat´s engineers have given the "F-Max-Signature" tweeter a hermetically sealed chamber, which produces outstanding fine resolutions, while two bass/mid-range loudspeakers have been provided with "controlled flexing cones", which are responsible for reference-level bass and mid-range values.
