Many of the key elements for the Prestige One have been borrowed from QLN’s Signature model, such as the choice of materials and technical solutions that made QLN their name.
The big challenge was to simplify without losing the key elements. Some parts were impossible to replace and had to stay, such as the unique 7” Kevlar® woofer that has been in use since 1989 and has evolved with QLN over the years.
This 7” Kevlar® woofer is the spine of the Qln Prestige One, around which all the surrounding parts are added.
However, this component is not the only factor of success, but rather a small part of the very meticulous balance between parts and tuning. All parts have an impact of performance, every material its own character. Any and all parts have to be carefully chosen, and their mixture needs to be balanced to make the perfect symbiosis become reality. The ultimate goal is to make you listen and enjoy the music, and forget everything else.
The drivers have been specifically selected and custom developed by industry renowned Danish driver manufacturer Scan-Speak and offers the latest in driver technology. The unique coated Kevlar mid/bass driver with its built-in copper ring in the magnet system offers a symmetric drive and higher dynamics in the midrange. concurrently suppressing intermodulation distortion and resulting in industry leading high-end voice handling and an astonishing micro/macro dynamics unheard of in a compact 2-way speaker design.
The 25mm wide surround tweeter offers a superb vocal presentation and excellent imaging in a wide listening area. Its large roll surround, built-in copper ring and textile dome diaphragm provides a flat frequency response above 30 KHz with an outstanding off-axis dispersion. A large rear acoustic chamber gives low compression and lower the tweeters system resonance far below the crossover point.
