D17 high-performance, 3-way tower speakers deliver full-range, room-filling sound and precise imaging in a modern, elegant styling
Dual integrated side-firing passive radiators produce extended low-frequency reproduction free of port noise, from a smaller enclosure design
Patented BDSS™ mid-range provides greater linear excursion and output that results in superior mid-range detail compared to drivers of similar size
1” annealed Aluminium dome tweeter with 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens™ delivers accurate, smooth highs, a wider sound stage and precise imaging
Laterally offset tweeter assembly: Reduces unwanted diffraction for a more precise centre image in music reproduction
The Demand D17 tower speakers deliver full-range, room-filling sound and precise imaging from a modern, minimalistic design. Fill larger rooms with detailed Hi-Fi or home theatre sound with extended, controlled bass, large dynamics and a wide, precise soundstage. The Demand Series outperforms the competition in its price-class with more performance in a smaller form factor, thanks to exclusive technologies as a laterally offset 1” annealed Aluminium dome tweeter, BDSS™ midrange/woofer sections, new carbon fiber woofers and dual side-firing passive radiators. Demand more from your Hi-Fi and home theatre experience.
EXTENDED BASS PERFORMANCE WITH DUAL 10″ PASSIVE RADIATORS
The Demand D17 tower speakers feature an exclusive 3-way driver configuration with a 1” annealed Aluminium dome tweeter, a 6.5” BDSS™ midrange woofer, a dual 6.5” carbon fiber bass driver complement with a dual 10” side firing passive radiator configuration for a full range, room-filling sonic performance. The sophisticated and elaborate bipolar passive radiator design produces extended low-frequency reproduction free of port noise, from a smaller enclosure design.
WIDE AND PRECISE SOUND STAGE
WITH LATERALLY OFFSET ALUMINIUM DOME TWEETER AND WAVE ALIGNMENT LENS
Proper tweeters must excel in three ways: they must be stiff, light, and well-damped in order to minimize their material characteristics that will affect high-frequency reproduction. Aluminium is naturally stiff and lightweight, meeting the first two requirements. To achieve the third, Definitive Technology tweeters undergo an annealing (heat treating) process to shape and soften the material, thereby providing the necessary material damping. On top of that, silk surrounds further add soft-dome benefits.
The Aluminium dome tweeters deliver a clear, precise high frequency response and the 20/20 Wave Alignment Lens™ smooths high frequencies off the tweeter for improved dispersion and a rich and balanced listening experience anywhere in your room.
A unique sonic signature feature of the Demand Series, the tweeter is offset to deliver a more precise center stereo image and eliminate undesirable symmetric diffraction off the corners of the front baffle.
