Our proprietary, trademark ribbon tweeter is a unique design. It is completely designed and build by hand in-house in Denmark. To be exact, it is a planar Magnetic Tweeter due to the tracks in the foil.
The foil is 11 micron thick, which means it is 50 times less mass in comparison to a conventional dome tweeter. This is because there is no voice coil and the extremely low weight of the foil (20 milligrams).
The result is virtually no resonances or distortion, and the breakup point is at an incredible 82 KHz! What you hear is amazingly clear and natural sound. All the detail in the world, but no fatigue, no distortion, and no coloration!
For the TD series, we looked at how we could improve the tweeter to match the new drivers. A redesign of the magnets, waveguide, and rear panel to optimize airflow, helped us to raise the sensitivity by 3 dB, and reduce the already low levels of distortion by 35 dB. This raised the level of performance further, making our world-class tweeter even better.
