The 1.7 Excel Monitor is a“cost is no object” ultra low coloration, zero distortion, high resolution loudspeaker system. Its design emulates our 7.1 Excel Tower and employs the same state of the art drive units, cabinet materials and crossover components. Extreme linear response, with less than 1.5 db variation, and low distortion makes it ideal for critical listening. The Dyna™silk dome tweeter has it’s own back enclosure for low resonance and coloration. Patented 7” Seas™ Excel woofer has a cast magnesium cone with pure copper pole piece and diffusor. In addition, an elevated spyder and internal shorting rings provide extremely low distortion while focusing a high degree of magnetic gap energy. This provides the "acceleration "needed for a true, life like musical experience.
