Sound Components for a Better Sound
We selected two of the American-made Knowles CI-22955 balanced armature drivers to cover the bass and midline independently in a three-way crossover system that utilizes a low-pass and mid-pass filter. The CI-22955 is one of the biggest single driver balanced armatures that Knowles provides, and its wide frequency range is perfect for utilization in the low-mid range. Our low-pass filter focuses all of the 22955’s energy in producing deep, impactful, and punchy bass, while the second 22955 driver is free to drive the midline. By integrating two of the same driver models for the low and mids separately, we achieved an extremely coherent low-mid presentation that is also free of frequency overlap. The trebles are handled by the gold standard Knowles ED-29869 balanced armature driver, and tuned with our high-pass filter to deliver silky highs that highlight the shimmer of instruments, without any piercing or shill overtones.
