ALL NEW - We were finally able to get our hands on a pair of samples of the new Purifi-Audio 8" (PTT8.0X04-NAB-01) Ultra Low Distortion Woofers.
This design is intended for use as an ALL IN ONE solution, SELF POWERED - requiring zero additional equipment and robust feature set included onboard. Many situations will not require an external subwoofer, as Driver selection and enclosure design give impressive bass extension down to below 25hz at mind bending levels. In cases where additional bass is desired, (2) additional 250 watt channels are already built into the monitors for easy configuration with 1 or 2 unpowered external subwoofers.
Here's the short of it: Per Speaker
Exotic Waveguide Beryllium Tweeter - Satori
8" Long-stroke Midrange - Purifi Audio
Built in Stereo/Mono Subwoofer Outputs
15" Deep - 9.25" Wide - 17" Tall
Low Q Porting for very accurate and satisfying bass extension (33hz tuning)
Built in 3 channel Hypex Fusion Amplifier - Rated at .0017%thd
Built in Input options - Digital SPDIF/Optical/Digital AES/Balanced XLR/RCA connections
100 Watts for Tweeter
250 Watts for Purifi 8" Bass/Midrange with 20mm Linear Stroke - 30mm xmax -
250 Watts per channel for External 10”/12" Subwoofer -(Single or Stereo subs can be Configured) Subs Not Included
Unpowered Special Version "Cube 10" subwoofers Can be added for an additional $850 Each
It's hard to really consolidate the improvements this system employs when compared to others in the price range, but as a start, the Purifi 8" Bass/Midrange driver is between 30-80 TIMES lower distortion than typical 8" driver (frequency dependent). The trick here is that Purifi-Audio took speaker driver design back to the drawing board, and re-designed their entire magnet structure, coil assembly, cone, and surround as a cohesive system. This ensures that every step of the way was optimized for the lowest possible levels of THD as well as (the now seemingly more important metric) Intermodulation Distortion.
Each driver selection, as well as the incredibly low distortion amplifier and inert enclosure implementation, coalesce into a truly unique listening experience that people typically spend many years trying to achieve. This system is on a completely different level from previous offerings for Hifi and Monitoring purposes - Think Headphones, but with even higher levels of detail, lower distortion, and absolutely mind bending 3 dimensional imaging. You'll find yourself getting lost in music you never before cared for, while simultaneously removing other tracks from your playlists. I often find myself thinking "there's no way the mixing engineer could hear these missed details (distortion/clipping/artifacts/compression/oversaturation). It's all Clear as day - sometimes to a fault, but that music gets relegated to a different kind of listening - We all need something to enjoy in the car.
Pricing includes standard black epoxy paint finish -
Piano Black - Add $1600
Custom Veneer (High Gloss) $1900
This Prototype pair was finished in house in a low sheen Textured epoxy.
This design is currently on demo and ready for Pre-Order, but they will be available in the coming months in beautiful custom Veneer choices as well as a Piano Black finish. Please contact us if you are interested in a demo - More to come :)
This design is reminiscent of a Unicorn in the Hi-Fi world, but as you may have noted, they're as big as a whale - Thus, the Narwhal is born.
