The NOLA Metro Grand Reference Series II is a compact floor standing loudspeaker that provides state of the art performance in small to medium rooms. The Metro Grand Reference Series II uses only one square foot of floor space. Driver complement consists of two magnesium cone woofers, one open baffle dipole Alnico magnet midrange and one open baffle true ribbon tweeter. The critical crossover is the new UnisonTM 3½ way design implemented on three separate crossover boards. The new UnisonTM crossover provides an even more immediate, more dynamic, more coherent, and more "3D" presentation, compared to the previous version. The increase in resolution is accompanied by an even more musical presentation. The driver array utilizes our 45-degree mirror-imaged array for midrange and tweeter. Each bass driver is housed in a separate bass enclosure, separately tuned by its own double-flared port for exceptionally clean bass free of distortion or noise.
The exclusive open baffle true ribbon tweeter with a moving mass 25 times lighter than any known dome tweeter provides a wealth of natural musical detail, without etch or hardness. The lack of any enclosure in the midrange or high frequencies eliminates a major source of loudspeaker coloration -- which exists with any type of enclosure or material that it would be made from.
Top quality 630-volt polypropylene capacitors and flat wound pure copper air core inductors are used throughout. The boards are hand-wired, point-to-point with no printed circuits, utilizing Nordost mono-filament silver wire for maximum quality. The Metro Grand Reference Series II utilizes a built-in double platform ball bearing isolation base to further reduce coloration. The bases are finished in high-gloss true piano black.
The Metro Grand Reference Series II is ideal when the expansive musical sound of the Baby Grand Reference is desired -- but in a smaller footprint design where floor space is a consideration.
