About Ikon Title





High Resolution Soft Dome Tweeter
  High Resolution Soft Dome Tweeter
What it is: A synthetic material is injected with multiple polymers and the carefully contoured into a dome shape, fitted with a pliable surround, and mounted into the assembly. It’s extremely strong magnet and thermal protection and other superior components allow for high power handling and good heat dissipation  

Why you want it:
Wonderful resolution, incredibly clear high frequencies.

Geometric Dispersion Enforcement
  Geometric Dispersion Enforcer
What it is: A computer optimized, horn shaped faceplate spreads the normally directional and focused high frequencies horizontally throughout the listening area.

Why you want it:
Guarantees great sound and realism from anywhere in the room.

Accent Midrange Driver
  Accent Midrange Driver
What it is: Natural fiber cones, known to have the best acoustic characteristics, are treated with a polymer coating to increase the stiffness without adding excess weight. The bullet shaped dustcap is an important acoustic benefit because the sound wave created by a speaker at the edge of the cone trails the wave from the center by a miniscule amount of time. The bullet shape actually slows down the wave from the center so it's transmitted at the same time as the wave from the edge.

Why you want it:
Perfectly natural sounding voices, instruments, effects and astonishing realism.


 
 

Magnum Woofer Driver
  Magnum Woofer Driver
What it is: Natural fiber cones, known to have the best acoustic characteristics, are treated with a hybrid blend of magnesium, graphite, and other advanced polymers. This process dramatically increases the cone’s stiffness so it maintains its shape and withstands the punishing excursion of thunderous home theatre explosions and deep bass notes, thus avoiding distortion. The enormous, oversized dustcap acts as another shape-maintaining reinforcement, adding an unparalleled strength and rigidity.

Why you want it:
Tight bass and explosive performance with plenty of impact.

MDF Cabinet
  MDF Cabinet
What it is: Medium Density Fiberboard, a sonically inert construction material for cabinets, is combined with a multi-level circumferential bracing system to produce a cabinet that’s free of the distortion caused by cabinet resonance. 

Why you want it:
Produce a more open midrange resulting in very detailed, accurate vocals.

Binding Posts
  5-way Binding Posts
What it is: A superior connection than “guillotine” connectors, they also permit the use of higher gauge speaker wire.

Why you want it:
A better contact and better speaker wire provides better performance

Crossover
 

Symmetrical and Uniform
Cross-over Slopes
What it is: The high quality components are used only as low and high pass filters resulting in minimal signal degradation.

Why you want it:
Uncolored acoustic reproduction.


Gain
 

Gain Control (HW28, HW210, HW212)
What it is: This three setting control allows a -3dB or +3dB (0, or “flat” isd the other setting and is the default setting for Ikon specifications) modification to the bass output.

Why you want it:
You can tailor the bass output to suit your room acoustics and personal tastes.

 
Design Flair

 

Sealed Interior Midrange Cabinet
 

Sealed Interior Midrange Cabinet
(HW28, HW210, HW212)
What it is: The midrange drivers are sealed within an interior cabinet to optimize the performance of the midrange drivers and interior cabinet volume associated with the subwoofer.

Why you want it:
Precise midrange clarity in the vocal range and perfectly tuned bass.


Ikon Powered Bass System
 

Ikon Powered Bass System
(HW28, HW210, HW212)
What it is: These high performance models have built in, powered subwoofers, leaving only the mids and highs to be powered by the connected components.

Why you want it:
Extremely efficient, capable of producing the deepest bass, and all in a single cabinet.
