2-way Floorstanding Speaker
Now in its third generation, the Tosca is characterized by a combination of proven bass- midrange drive units, a newly developed compression driver tweeter and a multiplex cabinet. The balance between dynamics and tonality is unique. Despite its dainty dimensions, the largest two- way floor standing loudspeaker impresses with a powerful bass foundation combined with high speed and breathtaking fine detail. This tuning allows a wide range of different amplifier concepts, with the Tosca 2020 clearly emphasizing the sonic characteristics of all components. The cabinet material is a decisive factor in the sonic properties of low and mid-range reproduction.
It is important to avoid disturbing resonances and thus to exclude discoloration effects. Multiplex is the preferred material when it comes to implementing special loudspeaker concepts. The plywood, which consists of many cross-glued individual veneer sheets, is particularly stiff and therefore very low in resonance. The cabinet of the Tosca 2020 is made of 20mm thick multiplex. This achieves maximum stiffness, allowing a very accurate and deep bass foundation to be produced. In narrow loudspeaker cabinets, so-called standing waves normally occur. These have a negative effect on the basic sound characteristics. In order to eliminate these, we use a special filter system
(Helmholz resonator) in the base area of the loudspeaker to maintain a maximum of quality.
