The H1 is a revolutionary minimonitor offering the constant directivity of a large horn, the small size and pinpoint imaging of a minimonitor, the dramatic midrange and neutral room response of an open baffle, and the clarity and dynamics of a line-array. It does all this by shrinking the CBT speaker topology - usually found in 6+ foot tall professional sound reinforcement systems - into a beautiful 12.5" tall 3d printed frame and solid aluminum hardware.
The H1 is crafted with pride in Brooklyn, New York. Before coming to you, each pair is fed a diet of 100 hours of music, so that when it gets to you, your H1s sound their best.
The 12 full-range drivers of the H1 are wired in a Legendre shaded line array without the use of any inductors or capacitors, avoiding the time domain aberrations of conventional crossovers or having to integrate different drivers together. The lack of crossover combined with the arc of the drivers makes the H1 perfectly time aligned and phase linear.
Although the H1 sounds great on it's own, for best results, we recommend crossing over to one (or stereo) active subwoofer(s) around 140hz.
Similarly, because each H1 is an array of 12 dual motor drivers, there is ample headroom for EQ the H1 flat to 100hz without creating issues with distortion.
We're a small shop and each H1 is made to order with a current lead time of approximately 4 weeks.
The H1 has an efficiency of 93db and nominal impedance of 4.2 ohms, which together with it's smooth impedance response makes it an easy load for most amplifiers.
Shipping within the continental US is free. International shipping via DHL is a flat fee of $75. For international orders, local import taxes and duties are the sole responsibility of the purchaser.
The H1 is patent pending.
