Two Bass Drivers
With two powerful 6-inch woofers working in parallel, distortion is reduced for the low and mid frequencies. The total radiating area is actually larger than the 7-inch woofer used in Riva. A clean mid range reproduction is further more ensured through use of the same diaphragm compostion with natural fibers of the Riva and Ray mid driver.
For critical listening the grille is usually removed from the loudspeaker. By intergrating the grille into the design, this is no longer needed with the Tulip. Only 3mm thick, the sound is not at all blocked anymore by the grille. By fixing it to the cabinet, it is furthermore no longer a potential source of resonance.
The 24mm thick curved baffle is pressed into shape from 6 layers of High Density Fiber board (HDF). It provides optimal structural strength for the two powerful 6-inch woofers and the 1-inch tweeter. The cuts on the side enable the use of flat dowels to further strengthen the connection between the baffle and the cabinet walls.
