AW-6i enhanced top favorite! The starting point for the design of the speaker has been to make a smaller pedestal speaker from components with good value for money. The redesigned i model differs from the previous model with a new bass midrange with even better performance.
The new i-version uses a magnetically shielded CSX series element from the Peerless series, type 830903. The tweeter is manufactured by Seas, already familiar from many other building series, 19TAFD / G. It is a high-quality 19 mm metal dome tweeter and its features are sufficient for a very high-quality speaker. In front of the treble, there is a direction in which the directional pattern in the crossover frequency range can be well matched with the bass midrange. Because the elements are of high quality and a parallelizer is used in front of the treble, the filter has become quite simple.
The housing is of the TransFlex type, ie it combines a reflex housing and a transmission line. The housing can be made of 10-12 millimeters of material, however, the front panel should be made of a thicker material, 15-18 milliliters of suitable material thickness. The material used is, for example, plywood, mdf, solid wood or soapstone. If the case is made of chipboard, the case should be made of a slightly thicker material. The interior material of the TranFlex enclosure is suitable for 6-10 millimeter plywood. The inner parts are glued to the housing, thus making the housing very strong and non-resonant. The housing is filled with polyester cotton, compacting it completely, however, so that the air is still moving in the housing. The first chamber behind the bass, which also contains the magnet of the element itself, is left without filling. It is a good idea to place the filter in the chamber behind the treble.
Looking at the speaker measurement results, the responses look good. They are also flat in lateral directions and the power response is in good shape. Bass reproduction extends to about 48 Hz. The shape of the bass response is suitably descending. The speaker is also suitable for small rooms and for placing close to a wall or even on a bookshelf. In a larger room, it is an advantage to place the speaker on a stand close to the back wall, especially if there is no subwoofer. This will make the bass level fit the room. According to listening experiences, the speaker has proven to be very balanced. The bass reproduction is very sturdy and extends surprisingly down. The stereo image is good and stable. Treble reproduction is suitably bright and spacious. the sound is unencumbered and suitable for all music material. Sure, well-produced music material gets its rights better, a good speaker makes bad recordings sound really bad. The AW-6 has been one of our most popular speakers, it is suitable for both home theater and listening to music.
