Highlights of this design

Beryllium Dome Tweeter

Same great SS performance, but with a beryllium dome tweeter. Also features a ceramic Accuton midrange, a pair of 8" woofers and dual 12" passives. The drivers used in this design are among the very best the industry currently offers.

Dual Passive Radiators

Generating the deepest bass in the system, four passive radiators (two in each cabinet) load the room very evenly with deep bass. And since there are no rear ports, there is no port noise and the speakers are easier to place in the room.

Open Back Midrange

Use wide open, partially stuffed or closed off to control the amount of ambience to suit your taste, your music and your room. The result is an extremely wide soundstage for symphonies or pinpoint imaging for intimate jazz vocals...you choose what's right for you.

Detail and Resolution

The SS 8 Be's deliver the ultimate in detail and resolution. You will hear detail in the music you never knew was there. If it's in the music, you'll hear it...from 25Hz to beyond audibility.

Frequency Response

Extreme Accuracy

Flat Response

As you can see in this frequency response plot, the SS 8Be design is extremely accurate with ruler flat response. You will hear the music EXACTLY as it was produced.

Phase Coherent

In addition to flat frequency response, the SS 8Be design is phase coherent in the crossover regions resulting in a speaker that images exceptionally well.
