The finest ingredients create a solid foundation
All five speakers feature a low resonance, brushed aluminium housing and a fabric grille to protect the cones. The front and rear of each unit is provided with an elegant piano black finish. All of the satellite speakers are equipped with a removable 6 mm thick tempered safety glass base. In addition, the set also includes four practical wall brackets for the satellites. A floor stand that has been specially developed for the Ambient 5.1A set, namely the Ambient Stand 1, is available as an optional accessory. This is manufactured from aluminium and tempered safety glass. The connections are designed as gold-plated screw terminals.
Cutting edge technology in the smallest space
The inner workings of a speaker are decisive when it comes to its acoustic performance. There hasn´t been any compromise here at all, as numerous technical innovations have been adopted from HECO´s high-end speakers. All of the speakers in the Ambient 5.1A set feature 2-way systems with specially developed 20 mm fabric dome tweeters and 75 mm bass-midrange drivers. The bass-midrange drivers, which have been optimised in terms of their bandwidth, feature long-fibre paper cones, long-throw surrounds and extremely resilient voice coils. The centre speaker is equipped with two of these drivers for optimum dynamics as well as additional magnetic shielding. The subwoofer, which caters for the low frequencies, features a down-firing base that maintains a defined distance to the ground. At the bottom of the housing is a 20 cm woofer with hardened paper cone, which is driven by the integrated power amplifier with a real time limiter to minimise distortion. The level, crossover frequency and acoustic phase are adjustable and allow customisation with regard to positioning and overall sound. The front of the unit, which consists of solid, low resonance MDF panels, has been finished in a high-gloss piano black lacquer. The entire system has been coordinated using state-of-the-art measuring technology for both music and film material.
