Newly Developed Carbon Woofers

Audiovector Updates SR 6 Series

With the new R 6 series, Audiovector lifts the SR 6 loudspeaker series into the next generation. According to the manufacturer, a total of 112 detail improvements have been implemented in the three models R6 Signature, R6 Avantgarde and R6 Arreté.

The R 6 Series features newly developed carbon fiber woofers and, depending on the model, different tweeters with balanced pressure chamber on the rear. They are thus supposed to work compression-free, enabling the so-called "Audiovector Soundstage Enhancement Concept". The top models use Air Motion Transformers as tweeter. The handcrafted AMT of the R6 Arreté features an integrated acoustic lens, which supposedly provides an even silkier, more detailed tweeter reproduction and exemplary integration with the other drivers.

Audiovector's "Isobaric Compound Bass System" works as follows: The masses of the two woofers (6.5" and 8") are coupled together by the trapped air in their shared inner cabinet. This is intended to contribute to an impulse-true, deep and controlled bass. In the Audiovector models R 11, R 8 and the new R 6, the loudspeaker cabinets are assembled from thick, non-resonant vacuum pressure shells. The drop shape in combination with a laminated, dense, strong and heavy rear baffle is intended to further reduce unwanted cabinet resonances as well as to prevent standing waves.

The cabinets are available in a glossy or matt surface finish of exotic real wood veneers as well as in a variety of special colors. Audiovector also offers the possibility of upgrading the entry-level models at any time through their individual upgrade concept. Audiovector's speakers have been developed and handmade in Denmark for 40 years.

In Germany, the speakers cost around 14,750€ (R 6 Signature), 20,000€ (R 6 Avantgarde) and 28,000€ (R 6 Arreté) per pair.
