Slanted Front Baffle

The slanted front baffle provides time alignment between the woofers and tweeter and the truncated pyramid cabinet design minimizes the baffle area. .The cabinet construction is based around Qln’s Qboard® technology, to help eliminate structural resonances.

Mid Woofer

For the Prestige Five a new 184mm mid-woofer was developed, featuring an under-hung magnet system where the voice coil is in the magnet gap continuously, resulting in a linear motor system. This together with the open basket allows for air flow without compression or turbulence.

Crossover

The crossover in the Prestige Five is hardwired with non-inductive capacitors bypassed with copper film capacitors for the tweeter section. For the mid-woofer only flat foil inductors are used along with non-inductive metal film resistors for high power handling and low noise.

Internal cabling is Qln’s own proprietary design produced in Sweden. and the speaker terminals are WBT Nextgen® connectors with minimal connection materials made of silver/copper.
