Behold Tanara

Germany's Behold not only produces electronics, but now loudspeakers as well. The Tanara is their entry-level model and is deceptively simple looking. The three-way loudspeaker has two internally mounted 8" woofers whose output escapes through the front port, and there is a planar-magnetic tweeter flanked by a pair of planar-magnetic midrange drivers behind the grille cloth.

The Tanara requires a two-way active crossover to separate bass and mid/high signals, which in the case of the show system came courtesy of Behold's own Gentle four-channel integrated amplifier with built-in electronic crossover.

The price of the Tanara is $30,000 per pair, but that does not include the Gentle.
