All Time Best Performing AudioKinesis Speaker
We'll start with the obvious. Duke personally designed Gina's 10.5 inch diameter round, poplar wave guide. Our local CNC journeyman smoothly and beautifully integrates the wave guide into Gina's .75 inch thick solid wood exterior baffle, bonded to a .75 inch thick Gold Ply base layer. The solid wood baffle matches the buyer's preferred veneer. For our demo Gina we selected our most popular finish we call “chocolate walnut.”
Besides artistic beauty, the wood horn has two advantages pertaining to audio performance. Duke studied and integrated the latest research regarding wave guide radius, including the work of Dr. Earl Geddes.
A critical and largely ignored spec correlating to horn performance is the tolerance between its entry angle and the compression driver's exit angle; the closer this tolerance the less is diffraction and the better is performance. We are the only known OEM to publicly acknowledge the importance of this specification.
Much of Gina's remaining performance advantage derives from its proprietary 10” mid bass which is exceptionally linear, more so than even Azel's 12 inch mid bass, already a superb performer.
