The QLN Prestige One Bookshelf Speakers share the same DNA as the iconic QLN Signature. Many of its main elements were borrowed from the Signature model, such as the choice of materials and technical solutions. The big challenge was to simplify without losing the main elements. Some of the parts were not replaced and had to stay, like the exclusive 7" Kevlar® woofer, which has been in use since 1989 and has evolved over the years.
The 7” Kevlar® woofer is the backbone of the QLN Prestige One Bookshelf Speakers, around which all parts are added.
This component is not the only factor of success, but a very meticulous balance of parts and adjustments. All parts have an impact on performance, each material has its own character. All parts are chosen with care and their integration is balanced to make the perfect symbiosis between all the components involved.
The ultimate goal is to make you listen and enjoy the music and forget about everything else.
The cabinet is very small to house a 7” woofer. It’s tuned to naturally roll-off without any ringing in step response. The cabinet is made of 22mm thick HDF-board with our proprietary internal damping to minimise cabinet resonances. Organic wool is used for internal acoustic damping.
Crossover is hardwired with Mundorf capacitors and baked air coils to avoid any internal component and filter resonances. The result is perfect timing within the crossover and throughout the entire frequency range.
The drivers have been specifically selected and custom developed by industry renowned Danish driver manufacturer Scan-Speak and offers the latest in driver technology. The unique coated Kevlar mid/bass driver with its built-in copper ring in the magnet system offers a symmetric drive and higher dynamics in the midrange concurrently suppressing intermodulation distortion and resulting in industry leading high-end voice handling and an astonishing micro/macro dynamics unheard in a compact 2-way speaker design.
The 25mm wide surround tweeter offers a superb vocal presentation and excellent imaging in a wide listening area. Its large roll surround, built-in copper ring and textile dome diaphragm provides a flat frequency response above 30 KHz with an outstanding off-axis dispersion. A large rear acoustic chamber gives low compression and lower the tweeters system resonance far below the crossover point.
