WHERE AND WHY WE USE TRX360TM


Bookshelf and floorstanding models from the F500 series up to the flagship F1 employ a downwards firing port system, and the floorstanding models use a twin cavity reflex loading system. This loading system broadens the tuning frequency to reduce cone excursion, and acts as a muffler, blocking standing waves produced by the main internal port.

PERFECT ROOM INTEGRATION


Below the vent in the base of the loudspeaker, the TRX360TM Tractrix profile diffuser (patent applied for) is used to convert the plain wave energy to an expanding spherical 360-degree wavefront, integrating energy uniformly into the room.

DESIGN PROFILE


This profile has been previously applied to horn loudspeakers by Voight in the 1920’s, but the application to a diffuser of this type is thought to be novel.
The TRX360TM Tractrix profile is known to maintain a 90 degree angle at each intersection of the expanding wavefront, thus avoiding reflections. This clever arrangement also makes the loudspeaker less critical of room positioning.
