YG Acoustics - New Product Release
YG Acoustics™ is proud to announce the introduction of a successor to the award winning Carmel™ loudspeakers - Carmel™2.
Building a successor to the enormously successful Carmel™ loudspeaker brings with it immense challenges. YG Acoustics™ had developed significant technologies in the past few years that begged for inclusion in the Carmel™ platform but were cost prohibitive. Not the least of which are the now famous BilletCore™ cone drivers and ForgeCore™ tweeter. Carmel™2 is therefore the culmination of years of research, and a near-obsessive desire by YG Acoustics™’ lead-designer Yoav Geva, who insisted that his inevitable responsibility was to extend the leading-edge technologies of Sonja™ and Hailey™, to Carmel™2.
Carmel™2 delivers the lifelike natural sound of YG Acoustics™’ flagship Sonja™ and Hailey™, at a price that is within reach for many of us who – until now – could only dream of owning a speaker of such ultra-high-end caliber. The result is astonishing – world-class performance in a gorgeous marvel of industrial design and precision-manufacturing.
Carmel™ 2 proudly incorporates YG Acoustics’ ultra-low-distortion ForgeCore™ tweeter, extremely-rigid 7.25” BilletCore™ mid/woofer, and leading-edge ToroAir™ cross-over inductors. Freedom from resonance, both inside and out, is accomplished with YG Acoustics’ well known aircraft-grade cabinet and innovative FocusedElimination™ technologies. At the heart of Carmel™2 is a model specific DualCoherent™ cross-over for coherent performance in both time and frequency domains.
Carmel™2 – spectacular transparency and musical flow, timelessly elegant form, pure clarity... handmade in U.S.A.
