Guy at Pure Sound recently contacted Hifi Pig to tell us about the UK arrival of HECO DIREKT which is something of an unconventional 2 way stereo loudspeaker system. brochure shot

The Heco Direkt is a large 2 Way system with high sensitivity and has an attractive, shallow profile cabinet with wide baffle & rounded edges.

The enclosure is substantially built with multiple bracing and has custom designed, cast alloy feet to provide stable base & help positioning for time alignment.

The speakers feature an efficient 27cm midbass driver with Kraft paper diaphragm & alloy chassis partnered with a 28mm silk dome tweeter with powerful double magnet & horn loading.

The elaborate phase optimized crossover uses close toleranced components with the speakers having a linearised & constant impedance characteristic which should present an easy load for valve amplifiers

Direkt features twin down-firing bass reflex ports with rounded ends designedfor minimal turbulence and easier room placement.Heco_Direkt_Reflexrohre

In recalling a fondness for the easier sounding, generous qualities of the better loudspeakers of the 1950’s and 60’s, Heco have revisited the format of a wide baffle, 2 way loudspeaker with a large main driver. The development of this driver has been made easier through the use of powerful modeling & simulation software allied to far more precise measurement systems (Klippel) than would ever have been available in the 20th Century. The wide baffle with its radiused edges gives a lower baffle step frequency and fewer harmful diffraction effects, say Heco whilst the high sensitivity & benign load characteristics make the Direkt an obvious partner for lower powered, high quality amplifiers either using valves or transistor circuitry.Heco_Direkt_Chassis
