Ribbon Tower 30

 The Ribbon Tower 30 is simply a panel killer.  It offers the transparency and detail of classic Ribbon and electrostatic panels with dynamics and breadth of sweetspot that the large panels simply cannot match.  At the same time, it is much easier to place and setup than a dipole and offers excellent room coverage due to its wide dispersion.  The use of our Oval 30" Ribbon and 6 long throw 4" midbass drivers assures very high dynamics and great clarity unmatched in this form factor.  This relatively small stature and very narrow width allow the RT30 to deliver convincing musical performances in room which have been shut off to audio systems for aesthetic reasons.

The Ribbon Tower 30 can be used in virtually all rooms in most ranges of systems from pure stereo in a dedicated music system to full surround sound in a large home theater system.  Because of its considerable bass reach, it would only need the low frequency output augmentation of a subwoofer in a stereo system in medium sized room or in a home theater installation.  The cabinets are acoustically sealed and sincer there are 6 midbasses, considerable bass EQ can be added while the bottom end remains tight and resolute.

As with all Newform Ribbon loudspeakers, superb results can be achieved with a wide range of tube and solid state electronics since the Ribbon Tower 30s represent a benign and easy load for any amplifier.

The Super Module    -   Art Techo

The new Super Module combines everything we have learned over 30 years about delivering high resolution audio in the home.  The Super Module is destined to attain the classic high end speaker status of the R645 which has stood as a reference for many audiophiles for over 15 years.

The Super Module simply eliminates more errors in music reproduction than virtually any other loudspeaker.  Diffraction, baffle bounce and floor and ceiling interactions are, for all practical purposes, eliminated, thereby allowing every nuance of the music to be fully appreciated.   This loudspeaker paints a very black background.

The result is unsurpassed soundstaging, sublime transparency from a loudspeaker which simply disappears.  The Super Module gets out of the way of the music better than any other loudspeaker design and yet is easy to place in the listening room and easy to drive to realistic levels.  Newform Ribbons present a very easy load and do not have to be babied (or maintained for that matter).  Tube amps, good receivers (Onkyo etc) and the traditional well engineered component amplifiers will all see their full musical abilities faithfully represented by the Super Modules.

Full dynamics are on tap for the most demanding home theater scenes and towering musical crescendos while rich detail stands out in soft passages and at low levels.

The Super Module (nicknamed “The Cloud” by some avid audiophiles) can serve very well as a full range speaker in a music system in a small to medium sized room.  For larger rooms and home theatre systems, a subwoofer should be used from 20Hz to 45Hz.  This combination will produce unrestricted dynamics in any domestic environment.

Stands are mandatory with this loudspeaker and heights and base dimensions can be varied according to your needs.

Grills are also available for the Super Module and they can come in basic black or customized with any image that can be transmitted digitally.

The Super Modules are designed to work like high fidelity, high resolution audio loudspeakers and they can be made to look like technological art.  From both a visual and a musical perspective, The Cloud will produce stunning images.

Atak subwoofers have been designed from the start as a system.  As stand alone subs they are first class.  As a subwoofer array system, they are world class.

Somewhere on this page is an ideal solution for delivering world class bass in your listening room.   The Atak subs are very heavy duty subwoofers and installed as dispersed arrays will deliver superb musical results in virtually any listening environment.

First class subwoofers not only produce the room rattling bottom end  of home theater but also the fine texture and foundation of music.  They can do so, not by providing a great deal of boom, but by adding the depth and power and palpable transients of real music.   This reduces the load on midbass drivers and produces more transparent midbass and more precise sound source resolution.

There are several obstacles to producing powerful and musical bass in any given room.  The first is dynamics.  The subwoofers have to be able to pump enough air and remain in control  to fully and accurately represent what the music calls for and music can call for a great deal of low frequency room energizing dynamics .  Secondly, because of the long wave lengths of low frequency sound, “room modes” create very uneven response in different locations in the room.   These nodes vary in severity by frequency and are impossible for even the most advanced room correction systems to fully neutralize.  Therefore minimizing the effects of room modes at the listing position is extremely difficult when only one subwoofer is employed.

The only approach which will even out and reduce these nodes is distributed subwoofers.   This is the application of multiple subwoofers in different locations in the room as recommended by THX and most custom installers.  The multiplicity of room modes from a distributed system means that many of them average out at the listening position and make optimization easier.  The result is tight but extended bass.

As far as dynamics and power are concerned, multiple subwoofers will pump far more air than a single subwoofer for more effortless and natural bass.

The Newform Atak subs are passive (ie the built-in amplifier has been removed) 12” designs which utilize a cast aluminum frame driver with  a 3” voice coil and a 106 oz (3kg) magnet.   In the case of the 10” with passive models, the magnet is  212 oz (6kg).

In both cases, the well finished black cabinets are very small (12” model is a 14” cube and the 10” with passive is 12” x 13”)  and very easy to conceal in a room.  Subwoofers being black boxes are best seen as invisible in terms of decor.  A single subwoofer with similar output capability would have to have  two 18” drivers in a very large and very noticeable enclosure.

The subwoofer systems we are offering consist of 4 12” passive subwoofers, an 1100w (bridged Crown amplifier) and a Behringer DCX2496 digital crossover along with a terminal panel and cables.

These systems can be downsized with price reduction options.  If your receiver or processor has room correction that works well for low frequencies (not all are designed for this) then you can omit the Behringer digital crossover.  If your room cannot possibly accommodate 4 subwoofers then the number can be reduced to 3 or even 2.  If you are tolerant of slight cosmetic imperfections then a further saving is available.

This system contains everything and is ideally run off your receiver or pre-pro subwoofer output (or left and right outputs from your preamplifier, CD or DVD player).

Warranty is two years on the subwoofers and the manufacturers warranty on the Behringer and Crown electronics.

Prices are:

Atak Sub 12 full package with 4 subwoofers, Crown XLS 1000 amplifier, Behringer DCX2496 digital crossover, XLR/RCA interconnects, terminal board, 4 x 20 feet of 10 ga speaker cable with banana plugs.

$1830 plus shipping (and HST in Canada).

Without the Behringer crossover:  $1490 plus shipping and HST in Canada.

If you have a minimum 200w/ch amplifier with lots of bottom end grunt, you could consider omitting the Crown which takes the priced down to $1140.

Cosmetic Seconds Subs with full system: $1555 plus shipping and HST in Canada.

Itching to go all the way with a Wall of Subs - call us.

Want to go with the 10" Sub with 10" passive?  Add $70 per subwoofer.

Other custom configurations available.  

How did Newform manage to put togther such a phenomenal deal?  We came across a large number of subwoofers from a high end but bankrupt manufacturer which had been recalled due to faulty amplifiers.  These retailed for between $1100.00 and $1600.00 each.  We have pulled the questionable amps and made the subs passive.  Acoustically these subwoofers are A1 with a full 2 year warranty with one way shipping.
