The Vision and Concept The all new X1.6 is wonderful new addition to the Raidho X series. This is Raidho’s take on making a high performing compact speaker in this highly competitive price range. The X1.6 will deliver a performance unseen in this price class. It is the first time Raidho offers a 6,5” in this form factor and price range. Prepare to be amazed.
The Goal The ambitions of the X1.6 are basically the same as any Raidho speaker. We try to achieve: •Extremely low level of noise / coloration of the sound •Dramatic, energetic sound with a very wide soundstage •Hear every detail, but no fatigue •Very easy to listen to •A unique sonic holography •The sound appears right out of the blue •Very authentic and close the original
Ribbon Tweeter Of course, the X1.6 also builds on the legendary Raidho Ribbon Tweeter. Actually, it is a Planar Magnetic Tweeter due to the tracks in the foil. The foil is only 20 milligram and 11 mikron thick, so it has 50 times less mass in comparison to a conventional dome tweeter. This means virtually no resonances or distortion. The breakup point is at an incredible 82 KHz! The result is clear and natural sound, like no other. Especially in this price class, this level of performance is un beatable.
Ceramic Coated Bass Drivers Finally, a drive unit that can keep up with the Raidho ribbon t weeter! The base of our membrane is an aluminum cone, which in itself, is very rigid and stiff. One of the challenges with aluminum is that is has its own distinct sound/ringing. To eliminate this, our drivers are all coated with a thin layer of ceramics. The coating is put on through a plasma process that binds the ceramic coating to the aluminium. With the aluminium-oxide ceramic cones, the first breakup mode was raised to 12,5kHz, which sets a high standard for cone-driver resonance es. The motor system of the drive unit, is a piece of art. A very aero dynamic construction with a high-level ventilation which increases dynamics and lowers distortion. High strength neodymium magnets allow for ultimate control in a unique construction.
Made in Denmark In Pandrup, Denmark we have our own unique production of drive units, crossovers, and assembly line. We are proud to say that we have our own dedicated team which extraordinary skills which makes the quality of Raidho come to life. True craftsmanship and passion for every single detail is in our hearts.
