- D17 high-performance, 3-way tower speakers deliver full-range, room-filling sound and precise imaging in a modern, elegant styling
- Patented 6.5 inch BDSS™ mid-range provides greater linear excursion and output that results in superior mid-range detail compared to drivers of similar size
- Laterally offset tweeter assembly: Reduces unwanted diffraction for a more precise center image in music reproduction
- 1” annealed aluminum dome tweeter with 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens™ delivers accurate, precise, smooth highs, a wider sound stage and precise imaging
1" ALUMINUM DOME TWEETER WITH 20/20 WAVE ALIGNMENT LENS™ AND LATERALLY OFFSET TWEETER ASSEMBLY
Coupled with our new 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens™, our annealed aluminum dome tweeter delivers smoother high frequency response and improved dispersion for a rich and balanced listening experience. Offsetting the tweeter by 5° delivers a more precise center stereo image by eliminating undesirable symmetric diffraction off the corners of the front baffle.
EXTRUDED ALUMINUM FRONT BAFFLE
Clean, modern industrial design with a bead blasted finish provides a timeless look and feel that fits any décor.
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.
Patented Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) midrange/woofer provides greater excursion and output that results in superior mid-range detail and punchier bass compared to drivers of similar size.
NEWLY DESIGNED CARBON FIBER WOOFERS
This new addition to the sonic signature of the Demand Series tower features a dedicated woofer section for low frequency reproduction. Carbon fiber offers greater rigidity to the cone for deeper bass notes, while preventing cone distortion that can occur with other less rigid materials. Carbon fiber is a strong but light material, ideal for sound reproduction. It ensures that the woofers are sturdy yet light, able to handle higher excursion without deforming and provides deeper, clean low frequency.
PREMIUM HI-FI CROSSOVER
Demand Series crossovers integrate the latest in design and premium Hi-Fi quality parts. Polypropylene metal-film capacitors and air-core inductors deliver low distortion, high-clarity circuits for the circuits for the tweeter, and signal linearity for the low frequency reproduction, without compromising the midrange.
