Raidho Acoustics X1 Loudspeaker
Raidho Acoustics newest speaker, the X1, is an elegant and compact stand-mount mini monitor. The speaker is built with the Raidho Ribbon Tweeter and a bass/mid-range driver with a ceramic membrane. The mid-range driver features our newly developed neodymium based magnet system, long throw and low compression. The loudspeaker is primarily designed for smaller rooms and can be placed relatively close to the rear wall. The X1 is also ideal for studio work and near-field monitoring.
The new X1t is based on the classic super mini monitor, the X1. This revised version seeks to pack as much performance as possible into a very small form factor. And finally, at a relatively low price, in comparison to performance. Welcome to the new reference in super mini monitors.
In comparison to the standard X1, better components have been implemented resulting in more open and clear sound. The enclosure has further been redesigned internally meaning the airflow and bass reflex port provides much higher bass output and quality.
The t in X1t means Tantalum. Tantalum belongs to a class of metals known as refractory metals, which are defined by their strong resistance to heat and wear. It has a melting point of 2,996 °C, the fourth highest of all metals. This makes the membrane much stiffer and harder without adding any weight and thereby raising the breakup modes to an incredible 15kHz.
We can make this speaker sound amazing in 80 m2 rooms, but in order to get proper bass, we recommend no larger than 25 m2.
Raidho Series X Drive Unit
This drive unit is not only highly advanced and built in-house in Denmark, but is also a piece of art.
The result is that the speakers disappear even more from the equation, drawing a soundscape without audible distortion and with a pitch-black background that made the instruments stand out and create holographic sound stage.
The Legendary Raidho Ribbon Tweeter
Our proprietary, trademark ribbon tweeter is a unique design. It is completely designed and build by hand in-house in Denmark.
To be exact, it is a Planar Magnetic Tweeter due to the tracks in the foil. The foil is 11 micron thick, which means it is 50 times less mass in comparison to a conventional dome tweeter. This is because there is no voice coil and the extreme low weight of the foil (20 milligram).
The result is virtually no resonances or distortion, and the breakup point is at an incredible 82 KHz! What you hear is amazing clear and natural sound. All the detail in the world, but no fatigue, no distortion, and no coloration!
