Joseph Audio Profile - Audiophile Floorstanding Speaker
Despite its compact dimensions, the Profile projects a broad and deep sonic landscape. Sitting between the speakers, you can close your eyes and easily visualize the performers in the recording, and sense the size of the venue where the original performance took place.
Thanks to the carefully voiced crossover design, voices ring true, instruments are precise in timbre and distinct from one another. To listen to your favorite recordings through the Profiles is to hear them anew, as you discover nuances and details that lesser speakers gloss over. Audition them today at your nearest Joseph Audio dealer.
Impedance: 8 ohms nominal, 6 ohms minimum.
System impedance indicates whether the speaker presents a "hard" or "easy" load on the amplifier. True 8 ohm speakers are less amplifier and cable sensitive, and partner well with a broader range of amplifiers, including tube designs.
Crossover: 2 way Parallel Asymmetrical Infinite Slope Crossover at 2 kHz.
Constructed of specially selected components, each network is tested and individually calibrated to a high degree of precision, resulting in a virtually perfect match to the original design prototype.
The steep filter slope ensures good acoustical behavior in the crossover regions, with a minimum of acoustical interference, along with low distortion and wide dynamic range. Driver acoustic responses are in-phase throughout the crossover regions.
The Profile delivers a very smooth and even response over a very broad listening window. Unlike conventional low order crossover designs, the speaker retains its sonic balance over a wide angle both vertically and horizontally. This results in a higher level of fidelity than a simple on axis measurement can reveal.
Listening window response: within 2dB from 39 Hz to 20 kHz.
Dimensions: 39" (991 mm) H x 7" (178 mm) W x 12" (305 mm) D.
Shipping weight: approx 47 lbs. each (21.3 kg) / Packed in individual cartons, approx. 12 lbs (5.44 kg) for the stands.
