In the Exel model, the bass has been replaced by a Seas magnesium cone W12CY-001 element with a copper phase plug. It is one of the best elements in its size class and features the best choice for this speaker.
The same Seas model was chosen as the treble, which is also used in the Aluminum model, ie 27 TBCD / BG-DXT. The tweeter has a gentle directional smoothing pattern and is ideal for use with 4-inch bass midrange.
The case of the AW-3 model is a TransFlex case developed by Hifitalo. In a small speaker, the benefits of the TransFlex case come to the fore, especially in the bass range. TransFlex housing
reduces the movement deviation of the bass element by loading the element clearly more efficiently than, for example, a standard reflex housing does. This small 4-inch element provides surprisingly good and clean bass reproduction, while maintaining the linearity of the reproduction even at higher intensities.
The distribution filter is simple in basic connection. The circuit next to the bass removes the resonance peak of the magnesium cone, otherwise no additional correction circuits are needed in the filter. The filter capacitors are Jantzen Audio CrossCap MKP models. In the treble filter, it is possible to influence the treble level by changing the value of the resistor R1. Internal wiring is Black Rhodium RUMBA cable.
AW-3 Excel has a high level of playback. The sound is very clean and balanced, in many ways very pleasant and easy. The bass reproduction is surprisingly wide considering the size, the resolution is of a high order. The speaker also tolerates placement near the wall. The stereo image is wide, yet accurate. Of course, the directivity of a small speaker is not very great, so the recommended listening distance is about 1.5 to 2 meters. The AW-3 Excel speaker is suitable for the demanding listener who wants good sound in addition to inconspicuous size.
