TAD Reference One Description
The TAD Reference One loudspeaker is a
breakthrough product for the home audio market,
and represents the culmination of over 30 years
experience in developing class-leading loudspeakers
for the professional studio monitoring environment.
Central to the performance of the TAD Reference
One loudspeaker is the Coherent Source Transducer
(CST), a concentric unit featuring TAD's unique
beryllium-diaphragm design. Beryllium is used for
both the tweeter dome and the midrange cone, to
provide a point source radiator covering the frequency
range from 250 Hz to 100 kHz.
The CST is supplemented by dual 25 cm (10 in.) bass
drivers enclosed in structurally inert cabinet. The
result is a very wide-band, resonance-free monitor
loudspeaker of the highest quality.
