This two-way, bass reflex loudspeaker consists of an outstanding ScanSpeak
bass driver with 18 mm linear stroke and a tweeter, Bernd Timmermanns (Editor
of Hobby HiFi) described as "the reinvention of the tweeter".
To compensate for the different travelling times of low and high frequencies,
the baffle was at the top tilted back by 10 degrees. In conjunction with a
simple 6 dB crossover this led to a more precise three dimensional sound reproduction.

Performance characteristics by Hobby HiFi 4/2000: ..."what happened then let
us sit up and take notice: an absolutely precise sound projection, razor sharp
definition and a three dimensionality to the point with an exactly aligned
centre as well as a transparent width and depth distribution pampered the
ears of the listening panel. A well balanced tonality intended for exquisite
melodic delights was to be expected, however, the precision shown by these
slim speakers caused astonishment among the listeners. Even the bass was setting
a standard: the speaker proved its qualities with an exemplary dry and powerful
bass without being obtrusive. Meticulous attention to detail was shown not
only at moderate volume but also at higher sound levels. Therefore, the Studio
12 is suited even for big orchestral classic or big arranged rock- and pop
music, never mind combo music."
