Ultra High Frequency.
HF planar tweeter
The HF74vU is the biggest, baddest, and most incredible HF driver we offer. It has been found to offer consistent performance and output at abusive levels while retaining full command of our engineering standard for low compression and low distortion. The HF29vR is the black ops of high frequency, and the HF74vU is the guy who trained him.
Reproducing the high frequencies with commanding integrity means that with every fraction of a watt, the delicate and fragile elements that make up the tweeter need to be stable and efficient, while capitalizing on the baffle shape to influence the path and direction of the sound waves. The relationship between the enclosure and the tweeter is so interconnected, we have experienced vertical and horizontal off axis performance that is nothing short of mind blowing.
What this means for Home Audio is that these tweeters are in a class of clarity and performance that rivals top tier manufacturers. Your speakers will truly be in a different league.
The HFvU driver is nothing short of impressive on all fronts. As a planar, it is naturally sensitive. As a underhung driver, it has amazingly wide frequency response. As a musical tool, it is the master.
Studio Audio systems are designed to establish the baseline of audio for any given audio track, be it theatrical sound effects, music score, or music album.
The HFvU series drivers are designed with the exact same purpose as the Studio and Reference Series drivers: to render sound in a veraciously pure manner with low end ability that extends the usefulness of the tweeter without compromising low distortion and low compression character. They fit the entirety of our driver line up perfectly and will elevate your audio monitoring and mixing to a level that is light-years beyond the industry standard.
They are perfect for establishing the excellence of the audio track from high to low output levels. The vU series design premise is to be free from compromise and negativity while providing high frequency audio that is both delicate and deeply dynamic. They are highly efficient, balanced, supple, crisp, and clean. They have excellent off-axis performance and sensitivity making them ideal for faithful listening in: near and far field applications, main speakers, overhead speakers, and surround speakers.
The Ultimate expression of HF for clean and clear audio. Our design process centers around solving audio problems by changing the fabric of the design and manufacturing process, and the Ultra HF driver is the absolute peak of high frequency quality.
All of our drivers are designed to compliment each other and represent a higher standard of engineering, design, and audio quality. Our subwoofer drivers achieve a completely different level of high end sound, so our tweeters are engineered to match that ability and specifically the low distortion and low compression character of the rest of our driver line up. This allows our clients to view our products as a cohesive unit rather than individual factors in their audio dilemma.
The HFvU is clear, crisp, concise and very no-nonsense. In pro audio, it represents efficiency of design by thriving on the difficulty and acoustic nightmare that exists in concert halls, open air venues, and arenas. Our HF drivers are, by default, built to thrive brutal acoustic environments by their very character, and the Ultra Series is the king of accomplishing just that.
High frequency is probably one of the most overlooked and under rated aspects of car audio. When a HF driver has an excessively wide frequency response, you have better control of the crossover design. This allows for better compensation and tuning because there are specific acoustic behaviors that can only be dealt with by the crossover design. This, in turn, affects how the mid-range is perceived and the ability of the speakers to image properly, making the speaker locations disappear and creating a perfectly blended atmosphere of audio.
The vU series benefits car audio by offering the perfect acoustic presentation of a studio quality audio. High sensitivity and high efficiency make every watt count in vast proportions, making them easy to achieve high levels of SPL. Now the high frequencies in your automobile can have the presence and clarity found in luxury homes and high end studios.
These tweeters are perfect for automobiles that have good build quality with sufficient dampening and low road noise, or convertible sports cars, muscle cars, or super cars where there is high levels of cabin noise.
