Spirit 11 – Punchy, accurate and capable of highest SPL
Outstanding performance in home cinema, thrilling in stereo operation – Spirit 11 convinces with high quality components and advanced technologies in every aspect of its construction. The tweeter is a 25mm silk dome in waveguide execution to retain maximum precision at highest SPL. The Mid/Bass drivers originate from our own laboratory and are perfectly customized for operation in the cabinet together with the tweeter. The dynamic range, which this combination delivers is second to none and reaches from the deepest bass to the finest heights. Dynamics and Transient Peaks are reproduced accurately and provide for those goose bump moments, both for Music and Movie enjoyment.
The 25mm silk dome tweeter was customized for the Spirit-series and thus fits perfectly to the mid/bass drivers. Due to the waveguide technology, the dispersion pattern, as well as the efficiency were optimized. The 6 1/2″ mid/bass drivers originate also from the XTZ development center and provide precision, even at highest SPL. These High Quality Drive Units maintain control, even when at High Excursion, providing punchy and accurate bass.
On the Rear Panel of the Spirit 11, there is a jumper, which allows adjustment of the tweeter output level to the prevailing room acoustics, or your personal preference. Furthermore, it is possible to close the bass reflex ports on the Rear Panel, with the attached plugs, which alter the Low Frequency characteristics of the speaker. This enables placement of the speaker near a wall and drive it in sealed mode to compensate for the bass increase, due to the wall boundary effect.
The cabinet of the Spirit 11 is equipped with a 25mm front panel and 18mm side and rear panels, all made from MDF. Together with the additional internal bracing, this provides a very solid and inert cabinet construction, hence the high weight and the massive impression of the speaker. To further minimize the already reduced internal resonances, a large amount of internal damping material is also utilised. So the Spirit 11 plays the deepest bass frequencies, always with precision and composure.
The cabinets are painted with a perfectly finished multi-layer paint which make the speakers aesthetically appealing in a domestic environment. In matt black as well as matt white, the Spirit 11 defines where the term “sound furniture”, originates from. The classic, yet modern construction contributes to the splendid aesthetics of this magnificent speaker.
The gold plated screw terminals guarantee an optimum connection for your speaker cables. Thus a safe connection and best signal transmission can be ensured. In addition the terminal contains the jumper for the adjustment of the tweeter output level.
The detachable grille protects the drivers from dust and also from possible damage. To ensure perfect sound transmission, the grille is Acoustically Transparent and does not have any influence on the sound of the speaker.
