Product Description

 

Boenicke Audio W8

With the introduction of the W5 a new series of Boenicke Audio speakers evolved.  Greater affordability, amazing performance.  Scaling up the very successful recipe of the W5 two-way mini, the W8 gets the same 3″ wideband tweeter/mid on a 1st-order high pass, a larger rear-firing ambient dome tweeter, a dedicated 4″ 1st-order low-passed paper-cone midrange and a sidefiring long-throw 6.5″ woofer in a curved rear-line loading arrangement tuned to 28Hz without a crossover. The W8 also gets an optional customized version of Boenicke’s SwingBase whereby the rear of the speaker is wire-suspended off the floor to decouple rather than couple, with the front decoupled by a ceramic roller bearing.

The W8 is offered in three versions, standard, SE and SE+. All share 87dB sensitivity and a nominal 4-ohm impedance. The SE version adds an electromechanical parallel resonator to the bass/midrange, Harmonix Tuning Bases to the widebander, Bybee Quantum Purifiers and a proprietary phase linearisation network. The SE+ version adds Stage II type electromechanical series resonators to all three drivers, a parallel resonator to the woofer and a Steinmusic Speaker Match Signature module.

The standard versions can be order directly from our web site.  Before ordering the special editions please contact us to discuss.
