High quality coaxial speaker in a closed housing. High quality playback and the ability to place close to / on the wall as well.

The design goal of the AW-7 speaker has been versatility and functionality even in smaller rooms without compromising on high-quality playback features. The AW-7 is ideal for the demanding listener for stereo listening, but also for multi-channel systems. It is not very critical for placement close to the wall and also works better than normal on a bookshelf. However, it was desired that the capacity of the speaker be such that it would work flawlessly even in a larger space.
To meet these requirements, we decided to use a 6.5 "coaxial element housed in a sealed enclosure. We have years of experience using coaxial elements and have used Seas 6.5" coaxial elements in many of our models in the past. For the AW-7 speaker, together with the element manufacturer Seas, we designed a completely new coaxial element, the design of which has taken into account its use also in a closed housing. The new T18REX / ACG coaxial is manufactured exclusively for the use of Hifitalo, the element differs significantly from the standard element, e.g. voice coil, treble, suspension.
Thanks to the closed case, the speaker is quite small in size and the frequency response of the bass range allows balanced playback even in a small room. When made in accordance with the instructions, the housing becomes sturdy and the after-vibrations of the housing origin are small. An exceptional amount of damping agent enters the housing, when using cotton wool the amount is 300 grams, ie it is tightly in the housing. This eliminates the formation of standing sounds inside the housing and optimizes the Q value of the bass. In a closed housing, the shape of the bass response also facilitates the integration of the subwoofer into the main speakers. The AW-7's bass output reaches about 55 Hz, so at least in a slightly larger room, using a subwoofer is recommended, especially for home theater use.
The AW-7 crossover filter is quite simple, its operation has been aimed at strengthening the natural low- and high-pass behavior of the elements. The Q values of the filter functions have also been kept low to reduce the tolerance sensitivity.
The playback features of the AW-7 are high quality. The stereo image is excellent and the sound has resolution and resolution. Bass reproduction is sturdy and controlled. In home theater use, the speakers integrate well together and can be turned into a high quality home theater. In terms of sound, it is far, except for the bass range, similar to the AW-10Coax. The AW-7 is a good choice when looking for a smaller speaker that also works in slightly smaller rooms or on a bookshelf and in this respect it appropriately complements our range of coaxial speaker kits.
