The Sentinels are a range of elegant medium sized two-way
floorstanders with a single high performing woofer and tweeter, but
all the clarity, control and extended range of some of the larger
series -- just a little less power. All Ascension speakers use a
similar very smooth and unique type of high performing crossover
design, adapted and fine-tuned, of course, to the various two-way or
three-way driver configurations and power requirements. This is what
gives Ascension High Resolution Speakers their consistency in
musicality and detail across the whole range, along with other unique
design features - including a hybrid Transmission Line bass loading
principal for smooth, natural and extended bass impact.
These 2-way floorstanders are made with quality parts and represent
great value. They allow for a small footprint and an elegant solution
to your audio needs.
All speakers include grilles. All grilles are removable but any speaker can be made without grilles if you request.
