RBH Sound this week introduced the company’s new Signature SX Series freestanding line of speakers.
The new Signature SX Series replaces the standard black finish models of RBH’s award-winning Signature Series and boasts a new modern, shapely and beautiful cabinet design. Employing RBH’s proprietary aluminum cone technology, each model also features silk dome tweeters and curved cabinets made from double-layered MDF, with a 1.5-inch thick satin black baffle. The curvature and construction of the cabinets serves two purposes. The first and foremost is to prevent destructive internal standing waves, thereby increasing sound quality. The second is to give the series its new, contemporary flair. All models are internally-braced to eradicate standing waves and cabinet resonance. To appease audio purists and make wiring easier, all models feature high quality five-way binding posts, with the tower models featuring two pairs, allowing for bi-wiring and/or bi-amplification.
The Signature SX Series consists of a standard line and a reference line. The reference versions feature upgraded 6.5-inch fixed phase plug aluminum cone woofers, a liquid-cooled Scanspeak® silk dome tweeter, and a modified crossover network to manage the upgraded drivers. The reference-level upgrades provide increased power handling and improved resolution, resulting in increased sonic clarity.
The Signature SX Series encompasses an entire model range from the small SX-44C dedicated surround speaker to the large SX-T2/R reference modular tower. Also new are timbre-matched, dedicated center channels incorporating one curved side and one flat side, allowing easy horizontal placement on a cabinet, shelf or other flat surface. Nine new subwoofers featuring the same new cabinet design were also introduced, ranging from the dual 8-inch SX-88 to the flagship SX-1010P/R. These new subwoofers feature RBH’s proprietary aluminum cone technology and one of two newly designed built-in amplifiers rated at up to 500 Watts.
The Signature SX Series is expected to begin shipping in November 2010. Pre-orders for the new series are being taken now.
