The Sidewinders are slimmer small to tall 3-way floorstanding
speakers that have side firing woofers in a mirror image set-up, with
the normal upper bass, mid and tweeter firing forward. This is
achieved by having a low crossover point between the lower and upper
bass drivers. Because low bass is omni-directional, the larger
subwoofer can be mounted sideways, thus allowing for the construction
of a slimmer box despite the bass capability achieved. Add the
similarly refined 3-way crossover network of the Summoner series and a
beautiful timber veneer and you have exceptional speakers of elegant
proportions. Good for small to medium rooms. These speakers cannot be
too close to furniture on the same side as the side woofer (the
cabinets have a mirror-image arrangement).
All speakers include grilles. All grilles are removable but any speaker can be made without grilles if you request.
