1" ANNEALED ALUMINUM DOME TWEETER

WITH 20/20 WAVE ALIGNMENT LENS™ AND LATERALLY OFFSET TWEETER ASSEMBLY

Definitive Technology sets the standard of minimalist, thoughtful design that serves to better the sound. Proper tweeters must excel in three ways: they must be stiff, light, and well-damped in order to minimize their material characteristics that will affect high-frequency reproduction. Aluminum is naturally stiff and lightweight, meeting the first two requirements. To achieve the third, Definitive Technology tweeters undergo an annealing (heat treating) process to shape and soften the material, thereby providing the necessary material damping.

Coupled with the 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens™, Definitive Technology 1” aluminum dome tweeters deliver a clear, precise high frequency response and the 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens smooths high frequencies off the tweeter for improved dispersion and a rich and balanced listening experience anywhere in your room.

A unique sonic signature feature of the Demand Series, the tweeter is offset to deliver a more precise center stereo image and eliminate undesirable symmetric diffraction off the corners of the front baffle.

BDSS™ Midrange/woofer

Balanced Double Surround System

Patented Double Surround mid-range provides greater linear excursion and output that results in superior mid-range detail compared to drivers of similar size.

LINEAR RESPONSE WAVEGUIDE™

Patented Linear Response Waveguide extends both on and off axis frequency response, while improving dispersion for more natural mid-range timbre and more precise imaging.  


Extruded Aluminum Front Baffle

Clean, beautiful modern industrial design with an extruded Aluminum front baffle bead blasted finish that provides a timeless look and feel that fits any décor. Lightweight, durable and recyclable, aluminum is truly the metal of a modern lifestyle.
