An extremely low-resonance MDF housing in an elegant high-gloss piano finish
The solid panels and internal bracing that have been used for the cabinets of each Aleva GT unit ensure excellent low-resonance properties, while the crucial baffles used for all models are particularly thick at 25 mm. The clear stylistic elements together with a black or white piano lacquer finish creates an attractive visual appearance. In addition, the generously sloped sides of the baffle optimise acoustic properties by reducing edge reflections. Screwed, flow-optimised bass reflex tubes at the rear of the housing ensure a powerful and distortion-free bass response. Connectivity is provided by connecting terminals with gold-plated and insulated screw connections, which are compatible with bi-wiring and bi-amping configurations. Phase- and amplitude-corrected crossovers - which are complemented in the floorstanding speakers by an optional treble adjustment function - ensure an above-average acoustic performance.
An impressive acoustic performance over the entire frequency range
All of the chassis used for the Aleva GT series have been completely redeveloped, while the state-of-the-art 130 mm bass-midrange driver, which has been integrated in these chassis, has been entrusted with a central and particularly important role. Five different versions are available in total, with each being perfectly optimised in terms of its frequency range. Aerodynamically formed, diamond cut aluminium die-cast baskets, durable rubber surrounds and cones manufactured from tried and tested HECO kraft paper are naturally also incorporated in the new Aleva GT series. The flagship model, namely the Aleva GT 1002, also features a heavy-duty 250 mm woofer in the side panel for an enhanced bass response. The dome tweeter has also been redesigned according to state-of-the-art developments. The short horn attachment accommodated in the diamond-cut aluminium front panel, the powerful double magnet system and the particularly wide surround ensure a high loading capacity, excellent dynamics at all volumes and a harmonious sound pattern.
HECO Aleva GT - a soft spot for film buffs
This high quality series from HECO has naturally also been developed with film buffs in mind! In addition to three floorstanding speakers and the Aleva GT 202 shelf speaker, which is ideal for rear surround sound, the series also includes a magnetically shielded centre speaker and the powerful Aleva GT 322 A active subwoofer. While the side-firing active subwoofer has been designed in keeping with the slim-line style of the series, it doesn´t disappoint when it comes to generating an impressive deep bass response, which can be attributed to its 320 watt power amplifier with active frequency response equalization, 300 mm long-throw woofer and aerodynamically rounded reflex ports.
