YG Acoustics Ascent Floorstander Speaker (Pair)
The YG Acoustics Peaks series includes five new speaker models plus a powered subwoofer, each performing at a new reference level for their price point. They excel in any size room, across all genres of music, and are offered in high quality finishes to suit every style of home. Ascent is the smaller of the two three-way floor-standing speakers in the range. Effortless dynamics blend with massive sound-staging, resolution and fine detail. Full scale classical and rock music pour out of the Ascent with ease. Authoritative, deep bass, clarity, finesse and musicality are hallmarks of the Summit.
Throughout the development process, quality was never compromised. Ascent boasts proprietary ForgeCore tweeters and our exceptional BilletCore woofers. These are mounted in thick aluminum front baffles which are precision machined in-house to a profile guided by detailed computational modeling.
Sealed cabinet bodies are made from inch-thick dense resin fiber, curved to exact tolerances in custom presses by experienced European workshops. They include advanced bracing and acoustic absorbers which eliminate cabinet resonances and reflections.
Innovative crossover topologies are optimized through complex simulation and countless hours of critical listening. These designs maximize efficiency and ensure the broadest possible compatibility with amplifiers. Crossovers use the highest quality components and are hand-built on circuit boards that YG machines in-house.
Through its unique combination of cutting-edge science and engineering, Ascent represents an approach with no compromises. Everything from the drivers, cabinets and crossovers, through to the veneer, lacquer and internal cabling has been carefully selected and modeled to deliver the most accurate, most musical performance possible.
