High-end speaker manufacturer, YG Acoustics has incorporated some of their flagship technologies, including BilletDome  and ViseCoil,  into its Hailey series of loudspeakers. 

The newly developed Hailey 2 is the 2nd generation of this speaker. First launched in 2014, YG Acoustics’ Hailey was originally modelled from the then-flagship Sonja, incorporating Sonja’s sonic ideals and aesthetics.

Designed and developed by YG Acoustics’ Founder and Chief Engineer Yoav Geva, Hailey 2 is designed in three forms; Hailey 2.2 a 3-way passive floorstanding speaker, Hailey 2.1 a 2-way passive compact speaker and Hailey 2R a 2-way passive compact speaker optimised for rear/side-channel (home theatre) as well as two-channel use. It can be wall-mounted using dedicated hardware or placed on a case/shelf. Hailey 2 is distinguished first and foremost by the patent-pending BilletDome tweeter. BilletDome is YG Acoustics’ most complex mechanical invention to date: a resonance-free soft dome is supported by a stiff, light airframe machined from aluminium billet. The airframe weighs a mere 30 milligrams (a thousandth of an ounce), but its critical sections are up to 14 times thicker than a typical hard dome. Hailey 2’s bass crossover uses ViseCoil inductors, which are CNC-wound in-house, then encased in a vise-like milled structure to eliminate vibration and tighten tolerances.
