We are pleased to present the QLN Prestige Five Floorstanding Speakers - an unprecedented 2.5-way floor speaker that marks the advancement and continuation of QLN's highly successful Prestige series.
Decades of design experience have proven time and again that what separates a good column from an exceptional one is medium ones. For QLN Prestige Five Floorstanding Speakers, years of development have passed in a new and excellent 184 mm Kevlar® woofer, which transmits instruments and voices with unprecedented clarity, resolution and naturalness. From there, thousands of hours of music were heard to decide which exact woofer and tweeter would be needed to carefully balance the spectrum of the music and house them in their own non-resonant and perfectly adjusted casings.
QLN Prestige Five Floorstanding Speakers exemplify a timeless combination of form, function and performance. They are the result of four decades of research, development, design and construction by QLN. A meticulous selection of combined components ensures that all parts of the speaker have a perfect synergy. This was an extensive process involving various systems and music genres over a long period of time to check for consistency. When you try the QLN Prestige Five, we are highly confident that it will make perfect sense to your ears.
Our slanted baffle provides perfect time alignment between woofer and tweeter and the truncated pyramid cabinet top with its minimized baffle area suppresses standing waves inside the cabinet as well as baffle effects which in turn improves 3D imaging. The cabinet construction is based around Qln’s unique Qboard® technology, where structural resonances are eliminated. The bass reflex port with its trumpet shape at both ends eliminates air turbulence. The Cabinet is de-coupled from the floor via solid feet with cones and pucks constructed out of hard, high damping materials.
The constant impedance crossover in the Prestige Five is hardwired with non-inductive capacitors bypassed with copper film capacitors for the tweeter section. For the mid-woofer, we strictly use flat foil inductors. All components are fastened with soft damping glue and inductors are baked to avoid any internal component and filter resonances. Precision metal film resistors with high power handling capabilities, low noise, and temperature stable performance are used, resulting in perfect timing within the crossover and low noise throughout the entire frequency range.
Our 184mm Kevlar® mid-woofer was custom developed by Qln together with industry renowned Danish driver manufacturer Scan Speak and offers the latest in 21st century advanced driver technology. It features an under-hung magnet system were the voice coil is in the magnet gap all the time, resulting in a totally linear motor system. Together with the extremely open basket, this allows for air flow without any compression or turbulence which offers more micro details and lowers acoustic noise typically found in standard baskets. Built-in copper rings in the magnet system offers symmetric drive and lower voice coil inductance, which results in higher dynamics in the midrange while also suppressing intermodulation distortion.
The long stroke, 184mm hard cone woofer with the same unique magnet system as the mid-woofer works harmoniously with the inner volume of both drivers to produce well-controlled, powerful bass down to 26Hz.
Likewise, the unique Illuminator tweeter offers superb vocal rendition and excellent imaging and extension at all listening positions. Its large roll surround and textile dome diaphragm provides a flat frequency response above 30 KHz with outstanding off-axis dispersion. The unique AirCirc magnet system and its rear chamber eliminates any reflections and resonances.
CABLES AND SPEAKER CONNECTORS
Internal cabling is our own and specially designed and produced in Sweden. It consists of 12 solid core pure copper wires wrapped around a polypropylene core with polypropylene isolation, bounded with a high damping camel body. All components are carefully hand selected and individually tested for any deviances. Speaker terminals are WBT Nextgen® connectors with minimal connection materials made of silver/copper for best connection to the speaker resulting in lower distortion.
Every part of the speaker has one thing in common – non-resonant behavior. From connectors, cables, crossover components, speaker drivers, the cabinet, and even the damping feet are all characterized by non-resonant behavior. This suppresses disruptive noise, vastly improving dynamics and preserving silence between tones as a result of the low noise floor. The Prestige Five presents a more dynamic and relaxing sound with remarkable clarity. Nothing is added – just pure music!
