After 16 years, Swiss loudspeaker manufacturer, PIEGA has presented the second generation of their Coax loudspeaker. The second generation of the Coax series comes with the compact bookshelf loudspeaker Coax 311 and the two slightly over one metre high floor-standing speakers Coax 511 and Coax 711.
The PIEGA team under CTO Kurt Scheuch invested a lot of work in the redesign of the loudspeaker drivers.
They say that “the second-generation Coax systems are a further development of the previously used drivers in all important aspects. Faster acceleration and improved dynamics were the objective in developing the new UHQD woofers. Titanium voice coil formers and an optimised suspension make the magnet system highly efficient and create the perfect basis for the specially formed, coated and extremely rigid aluminium diaphragms. We have managed to further improve the cabinet design: So-called “Tension Improve Modules” (TIM) place the entire cabinet under controlled tension and in this manner prevent even the smallest vibrations in the cabinet”.
