With the tweeter and bass-mid driver of same quality as Ray, the Tulip is a loudspeaker with deep and stable soundstaging and accrate tonal balance. And don't let the small size fool you. The powerful Tulip will give you the satisfaction of hearing a recording with concert hall clarity and precision. The Tulip is handbuild in Denmark and the retail price is € 3000,- per pair incl.

The Tulip functions as a 2.5 way system, but not in the traditional cost-saving sense. Indeed, the two woofers work in parallel only in the low frequencies. But usually this leads to a booming bass. With the dedicated woofer only assisting below 100Hz and through the carefully tuned cross over, the sum of all three Tulip drivers is in perfect balance. Also, with both bass drivers optimized for their respective frequency range, the Tulip has taken the 2.5 way system to the next level.
Used in both Ray and Tulip, this sweet-toned tweeter is becoming a legend in its own right. Being a 29mm ring radiator tweeter, it offers exceptionally low distortion. Through the optimized dome geometry, and by omitting the typical plug in the centre, sound dispersion is further enhanced. The high power handling combined with a low resonance frequency enables a low cross over frequency, without the tweeter sounding aggressive. Even at higher volumes.
The 24mm thick curved baffle is pressed into shape from 6 layers of High Density Fiber board (HDF). It provides optimal structural strength for the two powerful woofers and tweeter. The cuts on the side enable the use of flat dowels to further strengthen the connection between the baffle and the cabinet walls.
