AURUM VULKAN VIII R

With volcanoes you associate drama, temperament, fire and blaze. Experiencing the AURUM VULKAN gives rise to an expressive display of impulsive energy, like having the best seat at a musical firework extravaganza. Despite their high load capacity of 250/400 watt, they provide impressive, delicately fine-tuned low frequency characteristics, with even the subtlest hints of acoustic nuances and emotion being clearly defined.

AURUM VULKAN VIII R

With volcanoes you associate drama, temperament, fire and blaze. Experiencing the AURUM VULKAN gives rise to an expressive display of impulsive energy, like having the best seat at a musical firework extravaganza. Despite their high load capacity of 250/400 watt, they provide impressive, delicately fine-tuned low frequency characteristics, with even the subtlest hints of acoustic nuances and emotion being clearly defined.

Like the TITAN, the VULKAN uses a pressure chamber / reflex construction for the profound, punchy and clear contoured basses. Because of this design and engineering, the woofers work solidly and precisely, especially due to the strong, fast and yet light quadral ALTIMA® membranes. In this way, the original TITAN subwoofer follows the complex signal effortlessly because of its powerful drive and controllable state from this tried and tested ALTIMA membrane.

The new big ribbon tweeter, technically identical with the one in our TITAN, knows how to realize every impulse at high speed. The carefully selected elements on the crossover and the high quality Real Cable® for the internal wiring underline the high standards of quality. As hi-fi stereo or main speaker in a high-end surround system, the VULKAN can live quite happily without the usual need for a stand-alone subwoofer.
