«Boy, I really like these speakers!»
Argon³L floorstander is closely based on the Argon³ bookshelf, which is praised for its midrange resolution. The design concept of Argon³L was simple, yet highly challenging:
Take Argon³ – one of world´s best bookshelf speakers
Create more bass extention without loosing midrange magic.
Solution: Keeping midrange separated from the woofer section. Developing an internal bass loading for the lower registers.Develop a transparent floorstander – or a reference quality monitor with integrated stand.
End result: A floorstander with midrange purity which equals the best mini-monitors, yet provides added authority for low registers.
To achieve the almost undoable task of keeping the midrange magic while creating more bass energy a highly complex and innovative enclosure structure was developed. Midrange and woofer chambers are separated, which keeps the upper bass from interfering with the midrange.
A very solid, complex and heavily braced cabinet and a proprietary bass loading system allows the woofer to keep its midrange clarity yet produce lower octaves with more authority.
Added enclosure volume allows bass frequencies to reach below 30Hz. Furthermore Argon³L has true realistic bass authority without the usual midrange-masking upper bass bloat present in most mid priced floorstanders. And a true reference quality mini-monitor midrange.
High degree of three dimensionality and good bass extention make Argon³L a perfect speakers for high quality two-channel systems, which are also used for enjoying movies. Argon³L produces a fulfilling cinema experience – no subwoofer or center speaker needed.
