Elaborate chassis technology
The heart of the fabulous high-frequency reproduction is our new hi-res module with two, yes two fmax tweeters. A 30 mm dome with a particularly wide bead allows it to operate with a low crossover frequency and therefore connect perfectly to the mid-range unit. The additional 20 mm super dome tweeter is the basis for extended frequency response to beyond 50 kHz. It also displays excellent all-round dispersion characteristics. In this combination, the module is certified with the Hi-Res Seal by the Japan Audio Society.
The FE Dynamics woofers and subwoofers have specially coated diaphragms that are checked for interference resonance and optimized using laser technology, the so-called Klippel method. A ventilated voice coil unit, the speaker drive, guarantees optimum cooling and, therefore, maximum resilience - even when things really get going.
Exceptional production quality
The solid MDF housing is low resonance, providing the best sound conditions for the chassis. The baffle of the Signature 500 is coated with high-gloss black piano lacquer in the black ash models, with the mocha finish complemented by a silk-matt anthracite front panel. Sturdy decorative rings held by six screws not only perfect the look, but also the seating of the speakers. The removable fabric cover allows the choice between a very subtle look and one revealing the technology. The crossover, made of high-quality components, operates with 24 dB cut filters, is amplitude and phase-corrected and therefore enables precise control of the individual chassis. Amply dimensioned terminals not only allow use of the highest-quality cables, they also facilitate bi-wiring and bi-amping, i.e. the use of different cables or amplifiers for bass and treble ranges. How much attention to detail has been invested in the design of the Signature 500 is also demonstrated by the use of the Airflex port with a rounded reflex opening, which minimizes flow noise.
Can be combined in a variety of ways
The Signature 500 is available in various versions. This means that fans of pure stereo playback can combine different setups, while home cinema enthusiasts can also choose the perfect combination. A shelf-top speaker, the Signature 503, two different size floor-standing loudspeakers, Signature 505 and 507, and the Signature Center 53 speaker make it possible to find the perfect solution for every room and every acoustic requirement. The Signature Sub 300 A active subwoofer delivers the desired emphasis in the low-frequency segment
