If the loudspeaker industry recognized its top stars like the NFL or NHL, than Aerial Acoustics’ engineer Michael Kelly would be a perennial all-star.
Kelly, one of the industry’s most highly regarded engineers recently debuted his latest efforts: the Model 20T V2 floorstanding loudspeaker.
The newly reintroduced loudspeaker is the latest version of the company’s flagship Model 20T loudspeaker, which can be used for stereo music and home theater applications.
Among Kelly’s design revisions include updates to the speaker’s woofers and electronic crossover network that allow the speaker to respond quicker and more linear for smoother and firmer bass.
Internally the 4-ohm rated speaker features two 8.9-inch woofers, a single 7.1-inch midrange driver and a 4.1-inch pure-aluminum ribbon tweeter. These components are controlled by the 20T’s new crossover network to enable the speaker to reproduce a frequency range of 25Hz to 35kHz at an amplifier sensitivity level of 90dB.
Externally, the Model 20T V2s feature two sets of binding posts for audiophile bi-wiring/bi-amping connections and a choice of veneers and high-gloss finishes to help the speakers seamlessly blend into nearly any home decor.
