At CES 2020, Definitive Technology is announcing the Demand Series of Tower Speakers and center channel, adding to its Demand Series speaker range.
The Demand Series D15 and D17 tower speakers feature an annealed 1-inch aluminum dome tweeter, which is laterally offset and coupled with a 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens. According to the company, this allows for more precise imaging by eliminating undesirable symmetric diffraction from the corners of the front baffle, resulting in a refined and balanced listening experience. Definitive Technology’s patented Balanced Double Surround System (BDSS) midrange/woofer promotes greater excursion and delivers superior mid-range detail and punchier bass in comparison to competing drivers of a similar size. In addition, a linear response waveguide extends both on-and off-axis frequency response, while improving dispersion for more natural mid-range timbre and precise imaging.
The tower speakers boast a patented 5.25-inch and 6.5-inch mineral-polymer BDSS midrange/woofer, respectively, and each tower features dual 5.25-inch and 6.5-inch carbon fiber bass drivers alongside dual 8-inch and 10-inch side-firing passive radiators. The new dual integrated side-firing passive radiators produce extended low-frequency reproduction from a smaller enclosure design. Definitive Technology also added a larger spider to increase linearity for deep, tight and clean bass response.
Pricing for the Demand Series is:
- D15: $1,699.00/each
- D17: $2,299.00/each
- D5C $799.00/each
