The Floor­standing Speaker

Donau MK2 with Audaphon, Accuton and Wavecor-Chassis

The floor­standing speaker is still a basic element of a good hi-fi system, since there is enough volume for the bass driver - a prerequisite for good bass reproduction. And besides, the tweeter is automatically at the right height - ear level. Below are some solutions by all major driver manufacturers.


Thiel & Partner knows to produce aluminiumoxyde cones.

What makes a Thiel ceramic loudspeaker driver so special? First and most important of all, it is the membrane itself. Only in a Thiel (ACCUTON) ceramic membrane you will find such desirable features as extreme cone ridigity and hardness which is needed for speed and accurate impulse response. The stiffness/weight ratio of this material is unsurpassed, the only exception being diamond. Also you will find a very high internal sound velocity which is important for a high breakup frequency point and extended linear range.

A floorstanding with Accuton chassis is Tigris.

Alcone by RCM

Alcone stands for aluminium cone and is a product range by RCM. The drivers feature a rigid cone and show, nevertheless, only a moderate resonance.

Alcone was founded by Ralph Mantel in 1988, offering metal cone drivers at reasonable prices. All drivers feature exceptional signal adherence and excellent decay attenuation. Alcone mids and bass drivers display an aluminium sandwich cone with a surface that has been hardened through anodising. The result is an enormously light and yet rigid cone, producing an airy and lifelike sound.
