Benesch's Latest Discovery
ilson Benesch's Discovery II
($24,950/pair), part of the company's reference line of speakers, replaces the original
Discovery, which was one of Wilson Benesch's most successful products. The new speaker, a
2.5-way, represents a unique approach to minimonitor design, placing one of Wilson
Benesch's clamshell Tactic II Isobaric Drive Systems in the underside of the enclosure
with a tweeter and midrange driver directly above. This unique approach yields an upper
limit of 30kHz and bass down to 43Hz from a speaker that's a true minimonitor. The tweeter
and midrange were custom-designed and -manufactured by Wilson Benesch. The Discovery II's
computer-designed cabinet features a carbon-fiber composite material along with a
CNC-machined alloy front baffle.
