Rocky Mountain Audio Fest 2012 • Hot Product

Coincident Speaker Technology's new Total Victory V ($14,999/pair) has amplifier-friendly specs, including a claimed 94dB sensitivity and 14-ohm load, but what's most impressive is its ribbon tweeter, which Coincident designed and manufactures. In place of the common grid, the tweeter uses a circuit board over which mylar is stretched. Israel Blume of Coincident says that the tweeter's sensitivity is even a little higher than that of the speaker. As if to prove the point, he drove the Total Victory Vs with a pair of his Frankenstein M300B monoblocks ($5999/pair), which offer all of 8 watts. Dynamics weren't an issue, and the system sounded wideband and powerful.
