10-inch Concentric Loudspeaker
“A great loudspeaker allows you to hear through to the heart of the music.”
– Andrew Jones, Chief Loudspeaker Designer
The SourcePoint 10 is designed like a cost-no-object loudspeaker, a complete from the ground up approach, to deliver the highest sound quality and value.
Design & Technology
DRIVEN TO ACHIEVE INCREDIBLE PERFORMANCE
The heart of the SourcePoint 10 is the innovative Twin-Drive high-flux neodymium magnet system.
It is not enough to simply optimize the frequency response of the woofer and tweeter. It is also critically important to minimize distortion in the motor structure of the drive unit. If the motor has distortion, it will generate new frequencies outside of the original signal. We have been very deliberate with the design of the motor to reduce these distortions.
The Twin-Drive system creates a fully symmetrical magnetic field, eliminating flux modulation for extremely low intermodulation distortion (IMD). This technical achievement is an important part of why the SourcePoint 10 sounds so pure and accurate. No, it won’t power your time-traveling DeLorean, but it will deliver the performance you’ve been searching for.
THE 10-INCH CONCENTRIC DRIVER. TWO DRIVERS. ONE VOICE.
Custom-developed by Andrew Jones through 18 months of R&D, the all-new 10-inch Concentric driver delivers stunning clarity and deep bass impact.
The 10-inch paper-pulp cone has nearly 2.5x the surface area of a typical 6.5-inch bass driver, and barely needs to move in order to produce large and dynamic sound. This keeps a consistent waveguide around the tweeter for the most coherent sound possible, with the least amount of distortion, and without sacrificing bass.
Fitted centrally within the bass driver is a 1.25-inch soft dome tweeter with a wide-roll surround and large diameter voice coil. The tweeter has great power handling and minimal thermal compression, allowing it to come in at 1.6kHz and deliver smooth response beyond 30kHz.
The two drivers work together as one to create sound that is pure and powerful.
HIGH-QUALITY CABINET CONSTRUCTION. BRACED FOR CLARITY.
A large woofer requires a large cabinet that won’t add resonance. The SourcePoint 10 uses thick MDF panels and extensive internal bracing. The top, bottom, and sides are 1-inch thick MDF wrapped in beautiful real wood veneer. The faceted front baffle is 2-inch thick MDF finished in a smooth satin black coating.
Two internal braces connect the top, sides, and bottom to further strengthen the cabinet.
EASY TO DRIVE WITH THE ELECTRONICS YOU LOVE.
With 91dB sensitivity, the SourcePoint 10 can be driven with as little as 30 watts of power. The nominal impedance of 8 ohms and a minimum impedance of 6.4-ohms means they are amplifier friendly. Whether you prefer tubes or transistors, your amp will pair well with these speakers.
MULTI-FACETED 2-INCH THICK BAFFLE
The front baffle is the launch point for your speaker driver. It needs to be strong and free of sound reflection. The SourcePoint 10 uses a sculpted baffle with multiple facets to eliminate diffraction. All you hear is the smooth and even response of the driver, not the sound of the cabinet.
EASY TO USE MAGNETIC GRILLS
It’s quick and easy to make your SourcePoint speakers more discrete for casual listening. The fabric-wrapped grills attach magnetically and are perfectly form-fitting to retain the profile of the distinguished multi-faceted baffle. For the highest performance, we recommend removing the grills while listening.
FURNITURE GRADE REAL WOOD VENEERS
You can choose the warmth and richness of Satin Walnut or the stealthy professional look of Satin Black Ash. The SourcePoint 10 uses furniture-grade real wood veneer that is book matched for mirror-imaged grain patterns on both of your speakers.
The SourcePoints 10 has a unique combination of modern and classic style which suits a wide variety of interiors.
