SongTower SC overview
As a custom speaker builder, we are often asked about speakers using drivers other than
those in our standard models. A customer really liked the Veracity HT2-TL’s, but wanted
a slightly smaller speaker. He asked if we could use the Seas Excel W15’s in
combination with RAAL ribbon tweeter. We said, “of course we can!” And then we went
Paul Kittinger worked up a TL cabinet design and Dennis Murphy
did his usual superb job with the crossover.
The result is a SongTower version that plays deeper and is more
detailed in the midrange. What’s more, the cabinet is not as deep
as the standard SongTower.
SongTower Supercharged cabinets are a sleek 8" wide, 9" deep
and 44.5" tall (not counting plinths and spikes). It can also be
built with 1” walls (rather than the standard 3/4”). In this case
the depth increases to 10 1/2”.
So, how do they sound?
The top end is lush, transparent and detailed - just what
you'd expect from the exceptional RAAL ribbon tweeter
The driver dispersion and the slim cabinet combine to offer
The sound stage is deep and wide with instruments and vocals precisely located.
Midrange is detailed and accurate. Voices are rendered with realism
The TL cabinet results in very impressive bass extension to 34Hz!
In short, the SongTower Supercharged takes the basic SongTower design to the
next level. Hearing them, we think you'll agree.
One additional feature should be noted. Transmission line speakers couple with room
modes differently than traditional ported speakers. As a result, they can be placed
closer to the rear wall without producing "boomy" bass. So speaker placement is far less
critical than with almost any other speaker design. While all speakers benefit from
ample room to the rear of the speaker, the SongTowers will work well with as little as
12" of room to the rear - a significant benefit in some situations!
