While looks do impress, one of Reflection Series’ unique features is actually “under the hood.” Our new EWB (Extended Wide Bandwidth) tweeter integrates the same tweeter dome technology and design found in our flagship VS line. The EWB tweeter’s diaphragm is terminated to a metal plug at its center
(creating a dimple)—stabilizing linear motion while significantly lowering distortion, improving dispersion, power handling, and clarity.
Multi-composite woofer cones
All Reflection models incorporate our new Fiber Ceramic Copolymer Material (FCCM) Woofer cones made from a composite of fiber and ceramic materials impregnated in a proprietary copolymer. By combining these multi-composite cones with Boston’s Deep Channel® Design, these woofers produce a smooth response over the entire operating range. That means you get all the thunder of high-output bass and all the subtleties and detail of the midrange—with minimal distortion.
Advanced cabinet design and driver configuration
While each speaker baffle features a smooth surface and invisible hardware, the real secret behind Reflection’s Super Linear Plane (SLP) Baffles is their unique ability to nearly eliminate acoustic diffraction. Super-shallow grilles using
an invisible magnetic attachment create an almost entirely seamless alignment with the baffle plane to significantly reduce sonic barriers. The resulting sound is equally pristine with the grilles on or off. Coupled with Reflection’s tightly spaced driver placement, each speaker delivers near-point-source sonic coherence, wide dispersion, and astonishing imaging.
