If Carbon Is Squeezed Hard Enough, A Diamond Emerges!



Carbon Ltd. Is a special offering that provides a unique blend of our Reference carbon fibre 12” driver and our finest passive driver from the 212/SE, all packed into the proven S/5 chassis, which is then fitted with triple chrome plated hardware. The result is stunning, for the eyes and the ears.

We wondered what might be accomplished if we shoehorned our Reference driver into a standard cabinet. Might we be able to deliver something special for systems where space was at a premium? To keep up with it, we would need our highest output passive driver and plenty of power to drive it all.

We began with our finest 12” driver, the ultra-longstroke G-1MKII carbon fibre driver, noted for its speed and purity. To keep up with its dynamics, we fitted the light alloy passive from our 212/SE driven by the 550 watt amplifier from the S/5 SHO, here with a few more jewels of output. The heavyweight 30mm-thick cabinet, borrowed from the hugely successful S/5, is our most advanced standard cabinet, with hardwood bracing employed extensively throughout its interior to quiet unwanted vibration. Turning to the visual presentation, true triple chrome-plated hardware was used for the exclusive top badge and matching feet which reflect their surroundings, while polished stainless T-304 steel handles complete the ensemble. Carbon Ltd. embodies all of our modern capabilities in a single, compact form.

In the end, we have achieved something special, but only available in limited quantities because many of the processes needed to build Carbon Ltd. do not lend themselves to large scale production.
