Peak Consult Perspective for The Princess X
Countless hours of measuring and critical listening have gone into making the finest loudspeaker available. An impedance curve and electrical phase character like an electrostatic speaker, the final blend of art and technology have made The Princess an uncompromising work of art.
The multifaceted enclosure is handcrafted in our own facilities by Danish artisans in a 1" HDF sandwich material covered by 1" solid wood.
The design was made to optimise the off-axis response and to avoid diffraction. In order to minimize acoustical waves, there are no parallel front, back, top or bottom panels. The slant of the front panel corrects the phase and timing between tweeter and woofer.
The Scan-Speak tweeter is a non-Ferro fluid 1" hand coated silk dome with a SD-2 motor, low compression design, and non-resonant chamber. The tweeter performs effortlessly in sonic behaviours.
The 5" Audiotechnology bas/midrange is hand built and specially designed for optimal effect in this enclosure. The driver features a cone that has been uniquely shaped for this moving system and a vented magnet system that includes Symmetric Drive to optimise the linear directivity.
The speaker includes an acoustical second order crossover. Every component has been chosen for its sonic and musical behaviour, with no consideration for cost. The crossover is hardwired with silver solder. The internal wire is an especially elliptical tube silver wire from Stereovox.
The Princess boasts an extremely linear frequency response, on-axis as well as of-axis. This makes it a very accurate loudspeaker in a "Real world" environment, becoming invisible in almost every room.
