Strauss employs advanced speaker driver technology in a most special way. Designed for use in reference-quality music and film sound systems, Strauss delivers a new level of audio performance and musicality in its price class.
Strauss is capable of astonishing dynamic range, clarity and extended low-frequency response that easily provides the most lifelike music and film sound reproduction you’ve ever heard. The ingeniously designed silk-dome tweeter employs three Neodymium magnets; each center drilled to create a damping chamber that eliminates dynamic compression, so open, effortless and linear high-frequency response is assured.
The unique 7" dual midrange drivers are configured so that the upper unit handles the complete mid-band, while the lower driver blends in as the frequency decreases. This configuration produces a seamless transition between mid-bass octaves and effortless low-frequency dynamics.
The 10" woofer subsequently functions a reproducer of only ultra-low frequencies. Crossover component parts and circuit board layout is among the most sophisticated in the industry, ensuring a highly detailed musical presentation today and for years to come.
