TimberwolfFloorstander Series

Timberwolves are slim small to large tall 2-way or 3-way double woofer floorstanding speakers. Bass extension is very good, especially for the larger double ten inch transmission line models. The smaller Timberwolves with the double wool, papyrus or fibre-glass cone drivers have real eye opening performance for their small size. This series has great front-on dynamic sonic impact, and good power handling. Some of these models have very high end drivers (used in other brand speakers upwards of $10,000).

Many customers rate the Timberwolves very highly, and not without reason, because constant research and development over many years has produced speakers for true, realistic listening pleasure that have many unique design innovations exclusive to our models.

All speakers include grilles. All grilles are removable but any speaker can be made without grilles if you request.

high end double 10" 3-way floorstanders

Drivers: 2 x 260 mm long throw bass drivers ; 150mm high end inverted cone midrange with ultra flat response; Superb smooth ribbon tweeter with response beyond 35 KHz.
Description: The previous original 8883PRTL version was a real artisan of sound and is used professionally by a highly regarded nationwide CD reviewer, but this Timberwolf is a further refinement of the design using new fast response drivers and ribbon. It is powerful, accurate, extended, and above all has that wonderful quality of faithfully, lucidly recreating a live sound-stage to envelope you in either a stereo or home theatre system. The ribbon tweeter extends the superb accuracy and detail of a ribbon down to 2500 Hz, the midrange driver extends down from that point to 400 Hz. Huge sound stage, efficient, clean and accurate with bass that is both solid and articulate, these ribbon Timberwolves are comparable to, and, according to some customers, more natural sounding than other well known brands priced in the teens.

Timberwolf 5522SV
smallest double 5" 2-way floorstander

Description and Specifications

Price: $895/pr (or $495 kit less cabinet)
Cabinet: 800h x 160w x 315d bass reflex 24 litres
Power Handling: 120/160 wrms/wmax
Nominal Impedance: 8 ohms
Frequency Response: 48 -- 30,000 Hertz +/-2dB
Sensitivity: 90dB 1w/1m
Drivers: 2 x 5 inch high resolving SB Acoustics drivers; Vifa 26 mm textile dome tweeter.
Description: This is our smallest Timberwolf but has a surprisingly big powerful sound stage. It uses the superb clarity, efficiency and extended response of the fibre reinforced cone woofer/mid married with one of our best all-round tweeters. This speaker has a very dynamic, natural and even response in a small package that fits almost anywhere. Very well received, and very popular with musician customers. A flat panel version is in the Fusion Flat Panel series. Very similar to the Duet 252SV centre channel, and they make a good combination across the front of a home theatre system. Good for smaller rooms; or, with a good subwoofer, makes a perfect HT all round speaker for someone who needs a compact system that is more dynamic than using smaller satellites.
