Compression drivers can generate more energy than dome tweeters and are considered as the signature of classic horn speakers. Classical 82 features a computer-calculated circular wooden horn with 44mm diaphragm titanium compression driver. When listening from a distance, one can still experience full and rich sound presented by Classical 82.
The titanium tweeter utilizes accurate phase design along with powerful magnetism and advanced chamber. This allow it to deliver crystal clear treble at the same time produce strong, thick and articulate midrange. The two 8 inch woofers are made of rigid and light weight carbon fiber which has higher than usual woven density. The crossover network adopts high quality customized components and sets the crossover frequency at a low 1200Hz. Classical 82 is able to deliver a huge sense of sound stage. The sound is open and warm with lively presentation. Classical 82 can easily generate room-filling sound when pairing with small amps thanks to the high efficiency design. It can also be driven by high power amps to obtain more authoritative sound.
With Classical 82, LALS offers strong dynamics. The sound dispersion and directivity is designed with precise calculation and ideal frequency response is achieved. Classical 82 is well made, solidly engineered and tends to sound good when pairing with the right equipment.
Horn speakers are highly efficient. This allows them to achieve lifelike and highly realistic sound effortlessly. In the meantime, the high energy output from the horns can sometimes lead to shouty and harsh sound in some spaces like concrete houses that have room modes emphasizing high frequencies. To better tame the treble under these circumstances, LALS has put the treble attenuators at the back of Classical 82. This way, one can easily adjust for optimal performances simply by turning the knob.
The nice wooden enclosure of Classical 82 ishandmade in Taiwan with highest standard. Russian birch plywood that is stronger and denser than ordinaryMedium-density fiberboard (MDF) is used to gain lower resonances for better acoustic performance. High quality wooden veneer finishing of Classical 82 makes it aesthetically appealing and is suitable for various spaces.
