Wilson Benesch Endeavour Loudspeaker


The Endeavour Loudspeaker

Named in honour of Captain Cook’s British Royal Naval vessel the HMS Endeavour; The Endeavour loudspeaker draws it’s design dialogue from the flagship Cardinal. Featuring a geometrically optimised carbon composite top, an identical alloy baffle profile, identical spine and the same silk black aerospace finishing.

The Endeavour is constructed from Wilson Benesch’s own in-house designed and manufactured drive technologies. Deployed in a totally unique arrangement, one midrange Tactic-II drive unit sits directly above the Semisphere Tweeter, with a set of Tactic-II bass drive units mounted to the huge aluminium base on the underside of the enclosure, which work together in an Isobaric Drive.

Carbon-Nanotech Enclosure

Whilst the Endeavour is ground breaking in many respects, its crowning achievement might well lay directly behind the midrange drive unit. The Endeavour introduces the world’s first Carbon-Nanotech Enclosure which houses the midrange drive unit. Born from research carried out in partnership with the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre in Sheffield. The Carbon-Nanotech Enclosure is a huge breakthrough in high performance loudspeaker design.

No expense has been spared across the Endeavour; each 1.47-meter high channel weighs in at 100-kg. The huge Isobaric Drive mounts via its own specially designed aluminium housing, which in turn sits in a beautifully tapered alloy base upon which the carbon composite monocoque and spine locate. Carbon fibre detailing extends beyond the A.C.T. Monocoque and beautifully sculptural top, with carbon fibre ports to the rear and underside of the speaker.

Every last detail exudes the quality and refined luxury that has become the hallmark of Wilson Benesch. The Endeavour is a stunning example of British High End loudspeaker design.

The Endeavour Loudspeaker will make its Global Premier at the Munich High End 2014.

The location for a high end audio exhibition is every bit as important as the product. For this reason, for the second year running Wilson Benesch have chose one of Europe's finest Hotels for the European launch of its latest cutting edge loudspeaker technology.

Positioned right at the heart of Munich on Maximilianstrasse and flanked by Louis Vuitton, Christian Dior and Cartier, the district is a center for art and high fashion, making the Kempinski an auspicious setting for the launch of a luxury high end loudspeaker.

Wilson Benesch will again collaborate with leading Swiss Electronic Engineers CH Precision, in what has now become an officially recognised Anglo-Swiss partnership. Following the huge success of last years exhibit, CH Precision have now been announced as Wilson Benesch's distribution partner in Switzerland. Anyone with a keen eye for detail will have also noted that Wilson Benesch have installed CH Precision Electronics in our R&D Facility and have now become the official UK Distributor for CH Precision.

Join Wilson Benesch and CH Precision on our voyage into State-of-the-Art Audio at the Kempinski Vier Jahreszeiten.
