TAD COMPACT EVOLUTION ONETAD-CE1
OVERWHELMINGLY MASSIVE SOUND FROM A COMPACT CABINET
TAD has many goals, but one above all: to reproduce music with all the realism of recorded performance. By reproducing the genuine sound, we remain faithful to the intentions and passions of the artists who created the music. How do we achieve reproduction of the genuine sound? Through an uncompromising pursuit of maximum sound quality, and by taking full advantage of our unique concepts and wide range of advanced technology. Making the most of those ideas and technologies, we have perfected the TAD-CE1 speaker system. Experience the boundless joy of hearing sound that is absolutely true to the music.
NATURAL SOUND CST DRIVER
The midrange and tweeter are configured concentrically to match their directional characteristics and eliminate disruption of the sound, while the tweeter diaphragm is elaborately designed and built from lightweight, high rigidity beryllium. With excellent stability, it delivers outstanding sound localization and a natural sound field over a truly wide bandwidth from 250Hz to 100kHz.
18cm woofer with a macs* diaphragm
The shell-shaped diaphragm integrates the center cap and cone into a single piece. Coupled to the voice coil via a molded cradle that fully conveys the powerful driving force of the large neodymium magnet, and combined with the turbulence suppressing aerodynamic design of the rear side, this woofer delivers a rich, clear bass and vibrant lower midrange.
* MACS: Multi-Layered Aramid Composite Shell
The cornerstones of its outstanding physical properties are its combination of birch plywood braces, MDF panels and Bi-Directional ADS Port featuring 10mm-thick hard anodized aluminum side panels that provide superior strength and vibration dampening. Additionally, optimization of the enclosure size and port layout have eliminated standing waves up to 250Hz.
* SILENT: Structurally Inert Laminated Enclosure Technology
Bi-Directional ADS PORT
Slit-shaped ports are positioned on both of the enclosure’s side panels with flared openings to the front and rear. The symmetrical front-back, left-right layout eliminates the effects of unwanted sound from the port as well as standing waves within the enclosure. Considering the compact size, you’ll be amazed at the rich and powerful sound field that will fill your listening room.
* Bi-Directional ADS: Bi-Directional Aero-Dynamic Slot
It takes full advantage of the characteristics of the CST Driver and Bi-Directional ADS Port in the absolute smallest layout area. The result is smooth, broad sound diffusion that keeps diffraction to a minimum. With a high quality mirror finish on tropical olive grain wood, paired with hard anodized aluminum side panels, it exudes a uniquely individual presence: luxurious, while still unprecedentedly cutting-edge.
