WILSON BENESCH SQUARE TWO MKII SPEAKERS
The New Square Two is a 2-way, floorstanding loudspeaker. The beautifully handcrafted cabinet is extended to give the Square Two a larger air volume to provide more authority and presence.
The latest incarnation of the Square Two sees important developments over it’s predecessor. New wood veneer options sourced and finished in the UK reside beneath the new low profile grill, which is laser cut from two sheets of steel and finished with turned metal links, offering the lowest defraction of any grill.
Like all floor standing designs, cabinet noise becomes more problematic when the cabinet surface area increases, this must be managed and controlled carefully. In the Square Two a multitude of new technologies counter the problem to defeat cabinet resonance before it begins.
Visible at the rear Impact Zone of the cabinet, Assisted Bass Radiators, developed by Wilson Benesch, absorb the energy from the powerful Tactic Drive Units and dissipates it as heat, significantly reducing cabinet noise.
Internally, the carbon composite technologies that are used in the Odyssey Range have been added to the Square Series in the form of internal bracing. High and Medium mass alloy pads, add critical mass damping to the Square Two cabinet panels. These measures reduce the noise floor, and allow the listener to hear the subtleties of the high performance drive units, all of which come from the same shelf as the highly acclaimed, award winning Odyssey Series.
