Finnish manufacturer Amphion Loudspeakers has announced the Argon7LS floorstanding loudspeaker. The newcomer replaces the Argon7L model, incorporating the passive radiator design which is already present in Argon3S and Argon3LS. The new member of Amphion’s Argon family of high-end home audio speakers is being demonstrated for the first time at the Integrated Systems Europe in Amsterdam, booth 7-W195, running currently and until February the10th.

Amphion explained more about the Argon7LS. “Passive radiator eliminates the known problems associated with reflex cabinets, where the correct signal is always followed by an unwanted tail. The new Argon7LS design creates a more natural energy transfer, providing the listener with an improved physical connection to the music, even on lower listening levels.”

Just like all Amphion loudspeaker models, Argon7LS uses the company’s signature approach to crossover design. The crossover is placed at 1600 Hz, which is located outside the most sensitive human hearing range, allowing the use of the tweeter in that area, where our hearing is most perceptive. This way the speakers perform as point-sources, solving the problems we generally experience with coaxial or dual concentric designs, where the tweeter is housed in the moving “waveguide” i.e. the woofer.
