The new A500 Signature Edition is something truly special
- special in the sense that it is a standmount speaker, that has all the advantages of a big floorstander speaker, without any of its drawbacks. It's in many ways what we consider, the perfect speaker. It's both compact, achieves extremely deep tight bass, high SPL levels with super low distortion, while also being very easy to place in any room, and even very close to the back wall thanks to its optional Cardioid Mastertuning.
So how is this possible?
For this design, we have used every bit of knowledge we have learned over the years of building active DSP based speakers, combined with the world's best performing woofers from Purifi, Denmark. The woofers have been custom-made, to fit the rest of the A500’s design. In comparison to the Original A500, the Signatures uses a front woofer design with dual voice coil structure, which means we can use 2 x 150 watts for this woofer alone.
What makes the Purifi woofer special, is its ability to move over twice the amount of air compared to a normal 6.5” woofer, while retaining an ultra low distortion - even at high SPL levels! The internal cables have also been upgraded to silver wires, based on the great experience we had doing this in our S400 Signature Edition speakers. The end result is an extraordinarily powerful speaker, with a new level of clarity in both midrange and bass. If you are interested in reading more about the groundbreaking technologies that goes into making these Purifi woofers, be sure to check the more detailed text further down.
As all of our SE speakers, the A500 SE is hand built in Denmark in an Ebony real wood veneer, as only 50 pairs will be produced and sold in this finish. None of our other speakers will feature this veneer, making these speakers even more unique.
