    The Phantom HD on-wall speaker provides a multipolar radiation pattern for the ultimate in spatial envelopment. The front firing 8” Silver/Graphite midbass and the 1” spiral ribbon tweeter are precisely angled for optimal coverage of the listening area, while the bipolar 5.25” drivers fill the off-axis response. On-wall mounting is easily accomplished with the included french cleat brackets, locking the speaker securely into position.

    Designer Notes from Bill Dudleston on the Phantom:

    "The Phantom is a very carefully conceived speaker with more technology than meets the eye... I'll explain. 

    Anytime you place a loudspeaker element near a boundary it is always accompanied by a reinforcement rise, then followed by a dip. The frequency of the dip is a function of the distance from the boundary. When I built the Phantom, I carefully positioned the 5.25" drivers very close to the wall to fill in the response -just where the 8" driver is subject to a dip in the frequency response. 

    This arrangement also enhances dispersion and prevents near field hot spots. Phantom is a diffuse field radiator that uses the wall to its advantage, yet provides great direct field clarity. The slopes in the baffles are key to the performance. They work great as side, rear, and height channels and can even be used as overhead channels on a sloped ceiling.

    Consistent with the new Atmos (Dolby) standards, Phantom avoids the phasey dipole effect of the early days of home theater."

  • Speakers require a break in period. Just like a new pair of shoes, the speaker spider and surround needs to loosen up from their like new stiffness. Bass will deepen, midrange and highs will smooth out. You can expect around 150 hours for complete break-in.

    The easiest way to break your speakers in is to simply play music with a wide dynamic range. Turn the speakers up a little louder than you normally would will help loosen up the material.
