GAE Director T
GAE Director Top is a 2-way-active, 60° x 40° twin-coaxial high “Q” loudspeaker system comprising two specially constructed 12” cone drivers with 4” voice coil diameter, 220mm ceramic magnets and a 1,4” Neodymium-compression driver with 3” titan membrane in a horn loading.
The outstandingly compact high tone driver allows an extremely tight installation of the loudspeaker’s chassis. Thereby the 12” horn drivers are mounted as close as possible above each other whereas the compact horn/driver combination is located in the middle and directly in front of the drivers. This grouping is acoustically perfect and achieved by a very elegant construction.
Only a few screws have to be disconnected and the backside of the Director Top can be removed, thus a quick access to the system driver is obtained. With the help of a high voltage plug the rear cover including the connection terminal can be dismounted which simplifies the service.
The mid horn’s mouth spans the whole front side. Two phase plugs which are installed in front of the mid tone drivers ensure an optimal compression rate. To avoid interfering reflections the form of the phase plugs has been optimised in a way that together with the high frequency horn they build a homogeneous unity. This way sound parts which are deflected at the edge of the HF-horn are kept from colliding with the middle horn thereby creating interferences. The hemispheric ends of the phase plugs barricade the way of misguided reflections which leads to an early and diffuse diversion without negative consequences for the frequency- and impulse response. Due to this elaborate mechanical construction an outstanding frequency response of the mid- and high-tone bandwidth is achieved. The interaction of the different construction parts produces a perfectly symmetrical directivity. Additionally the HF-driver is electronically protected against DC and acoustical pressure load. The components are protected by a stable front grill which is backed with acoustic foam.
All these constructive and technical details add up to an extraordinary size/power proportion.
