A timeless two-way bookshelf speaker with a 133mm woofer, the P5 allows you to transform your system with pristine sound.
Loudspeakers Alpha P5 creates a pure and natural soundstage
The P5 uses a 19mm black anodized aluminium dome tweeter to extend the high-frequency response further than any Alpha ever before while lowering distortion to deliver layered sound with detail and clarity. Unlike lesser designs at this price, all of the new Alpha Series tweeters employ ferrofluid cooling to prevent dynamic compression and a neodymium magnet for high sensitivity. The tweeter’s front waveguide and its unique placement below the woofer work together to smooth the response at the crossover and perfect on and off-axis performance.
When paired with the Alpha Series’ newly designed tweeter, the P5’s custom 133mm woofer provides remarkable low-frequency response and the highest speaker efficiency in its class. The woofer is constructed from a special textured polypropylene compound that minimizes cone breakup and lowers distortion at full excursion. It’s also supported with dual layer voice coils and a bass reflex design that uses the rear-firing port tube to control the bass response down to room-shaking levels.
The Alpha Series’ new crossover exceeds speaker standards with a special custom design that does more than direct low and high frequencies to the individual drivers–it delivers the tightest control and the flattest frequency response. An unusually complex Acoustic Linkwitz-Riley filter design has also been incorporated into the crossover design to lower distortion and create a seamless soundscape in any type of two-channel setup or surround sound system. ■
