Audiovector Trapeze

Trapeze artist

Danish loudspeaker specialist Audiovector is going back to its roots with the launch of its Trapeze Reimagined loudspeaker.

Inspired by Company Founder Ole Klifoth’s original Trapez from 1979 (his first commercial speaker), the new model follows the original’s principle of reproducing the true sound of a concert hall with the brand’s latest tech incorporated.

Just like the original, it features a striking sloping front baffle as part of its hand-veneered cabinet, hosting an in-house 5” midrange driver that uses a supremely strong Neodynium magnet for power and control.

Above this sits the brand’s trademark thoroughly modern AMT treble driver while inside lives a 6dB per octave linear phase crossover topology that’s based on the original. This time thought it gets cryogenically treated tin flash/copper capacitors, air cooled metal housed resistors (for bass and midrange), an array of film resistors in the treble and precision wound coils, all falling within +/- 1% tolerance levels.

Trapeze front and rear

On low frequency duties beats an in-house 12″ bass driver with a 4” voice coil and uprated rubber ‘concertina’ surround in place of a more common roll surround, with the former bringing added speed and control.

Supporting the Trapeze Reimagined is a twin-layer aluminium plinth offering double mechanical decoupling thanks to carbon steel ball bearings and spikes.
