Solus/Clements (Booth SR10) debuted a number of new models featuring H-PAS technology at CEDIA EXPO, including two new “Classic” speaker models.
Phil Clements, president of Solus/Clements, demonstrates new H-Pas models in Booth SR10.
The new Classic H-PAS 6.5T Tower uses a 6.5-inch woofer in less than 1.5 cubic feet of internal volume, being only 40-inch x 7.875-inch x 11.875-inch externally, a moderate to small size tower rated at 90dB sensitivity, 1m/2.83v input. Extended bass hits 34Hz with a minus 3dB at 30Hz and minus 6db at 27.
The Classic H-PAS 5.25B bookshelf loudspeaker boasts only 0.58 cubic inches internally with a 5.25-inch woofer. The extended response is to a solid 39Hz with a minus 3db at 35Hz and minus 5db at 32Hz.
Phil Clements, Solus/Clements' president and H-PAS technology inventor, said: “When listening to St. Seans, the organ fills the room with 32Hz, Low “C” that you can feel as well as hear, and the woofers are hard to see even moving. The electric bass and acoustic bass drum dynamics performance are unimaginable coming from a bookshelf speaker. I call the 5.25’s the “Imposter” simply because when listening you just know it must be a much larger speaker.”
“H-PAS has strengthened what I believe has been the weakest link in loudspeaker performance: low frequency dynamic range,” Clements said. "We can take smaller speakers and do great things with them."
