High-tech components for outstanding performance
High-performance FE-Dynamics drivers are used to reproduce the bass and midrange in the Shadow speakers. The majority of speakers in the series feature two of these drivers, with three being used in the flagship model. Lightweight, specially coated paper cones and non-magnetic, fibre-reinforced ABS cast baskets are utilised to ensure maximum throw and load handling capacity. The ventilated voice coil unit guarantees optimum temperature management in this setup. The construction has been Klippel-optimised to ensure a perfect balance between efficiency and sound performance. This enables the components in the Shadow series to achieve their full acoustic potential with smaller, less expensive amplifiers.
The newly developed fmax tweeter is responsible for the transparent, brilliant and, at the same time, pleasant treble range. With its wide surround, a powerful ferrite drive and a front panel with dispersion-optimised sound guide and effective prevention of edge reflections, outstanding dynamics are inevitable. The frequency range of the new fmax tweeter extends far beyond the usual 20 kHz.
The Dolby Atmos Option
If you want home cinema enjoyment with cutting edge technology, look no further than the Shadow series: The optional Shadow 102 ATM add-on speakers are simply placed on the front speakers when required, and they then reproduce the impressive Atmos sound by using ceiling reflections and a corresponding receiver: Music, vocals and sound effects now no longer appear as if they are around the listener, but directly above their head. This guarantees an even more enthralling and absorbing home cinema experience.
An exclusive housing for exclusive components
E1 MDF wooden panels have been used to create a sturdy and low-resonance housing construction, which almost completely eliminates "standing waves". In addition, resonance-absorbing rubber feet and metal spikes are also supplied to ensure perfect installation in any living room. All of the speakers in the Shadow series are designed as bass reflex speakers. The overall technical configuration is based on various signal analyses and not just on one frequency or a certain level. This results in absolutely clean bass pulses irrespective of the music genre or the volume level. Magnat´s airflex ports are exclusively used to ensure the prevention of flow noise. These bass reflex tubes with their rounded openings ensure optimum reduction of unwanted background noise.
Acoustics and aesthetics in perfect harmony
The visual impression of the sound transducers in the new Shadow series is as exquisite as the acoustic performance. All of the components are available in two colours and feature a high gloss lacquered baffle. Behind the rugged and removable fabric grille are the speaker baskets and the tweeter flange in a high quality metal finish.
The Shadow Sub 300 A rounds off the series and its generously dimensioned 30 cm chassis and a maximum output of 320 watts ensure a huge and powerful bass response. The subwoofer is also available in a piano white and piano black/ash finish.
