Wilson Benesch Geometry Series Vector


The Vector is a 2.5 way, highly optimised, advanced materials technology, floorstanding loudspeaker. Thanks to the cleverly engineered A.C.T. monocoque / poly alloy shell structure, complex bracing is no longer accepted as a design compromise. The shell design delivers huge amounts of air volume, despite its small external surface area which is another key factor in the success of the design. 
Assembled by hand, each high performance material, is bonded to another high performance element, resulting in extremely high levels of mutual self damping. The resulting complex hybrid construction is virtually inaudible, exhibiting one of the lowest signal to noise ratios of any loudspeaker in the world, yet is capable of delivering all the dynamic energy from the ultra powerful drive units.

The degree of control that can only be found when every single component is manufactured in house, legislates that matching of both cabinet and drive unit is axiomatic. Manufactured on high precision C.N.C tooling and advanced carbon fiber moulding techniques, each hand built system, is lovingly assembled by highly trained experienced technicians, to the highest standards. 
The Tactic II mid range drive unit is capable of remarkable transients that are never hindered by crossover parts. The control aff orded by this design is limited only by the amplifier. Impedance characteristics are benign, so low power amplifiers can be driven with applomb. A quintessential design feature of all Wilson Benesch designs has been the 2.5 way crossover. This ensures seamless integration from the lowest bass to the highest mid range, with the absolute minimum of phase distortion. Designed to function in complete harmony the Semisphere Tweeter then takes over. 
This latest innovation from Wilson Benesch, is the result of many years of considered development that has been driven by a comprehensive critical evaluation of the best technologies in the world, including the remarkable Sphere from Murata. The design incorporates advanced materials technologies that deliver extended high frequencies but without ever sounding un-controlled or sibilant.

The Geometry Series is comprised of four models:
Vertex – Mini Floor Standing design (available as of April 2011)
Vector – Floor Standing design (available as of April 2011)
Fulcrum – Flagship Channel for Cinema (available late 2011)
Cardinal – Flagship Floor Standing design (available late 2011)
