Speaker T + A KS 300

The housing of the new KS 300 (2500 euros the pair) by T + A is mostly made of aluminium. The result is gripping too, very clear and precise sound.

  2. Data sheet

Basically, what elements determine whether a box sounds good? Spontaneously most will say: chassis and crossovers. But that is only half the truth. Because a sound often underestimated element remains sidelined in this reply: the housing.

Theoretical ideally it should save any sound energy and radiate. In practice, this is not physically possible. The art is to make that our hearing feels inevitable contribution to the overall sound rather than foreign or disturbing a housing.

Because the currently best housing made of curved multi layer wood (which are used in a similar form in musical instruments) are not an easy task in making non-complex as such from inexpensive Board materials.

The Westphalian T + A high end full-range provider uses such layer materials in its high-quality criterion models, for example the TS 200 for pairwise 4000 euros, which already could be tested stereoplay 2/2007 issue.

In the new K – series, whose top type is to buy KS 300 for very moderate 2500 euro, aluminium, which promises a high sound neutrality without additional bends and on top of that classy looks sets T + A on the material. The almost one meter high aluminum shell of the status box is smoothly made in one piece and expensive damped.

The metal casing promotes a vivid sound

The wall thicknesses are higher than usual with aluminum cases, but less than in wood-based materials. So the box despite filigree mass offers a considerable net volume, up to laboratory-confirmed the a bass response 44 Hertz down less allowed – only 3 Hertz deep as in the non-wuchtiger shaped TS 200.

For the chassis, the Westphalia rely on tried and tested. Fans of more expensive models know as resonance as broadband active tweeters with fixed nose (a so-called ring radiator). A cone with slotted membrane processes the sensitive Center. This construction reduces disturbing partial coloration. The woofers vibrating plates are reinforced with carbon fibers and are supported by a bass-reflex tunnel.

While many competitive models in this League develop a more moderate temperament, the T + A unusually clearly could draw volume gradations. The playback was thus also quietly very kontrast – and varied. In less densely instrumented works that supposedly quiet lap then, this was particularly good to hear.

The atmospheric album “Romance” of the Brazilian singer Rosa Passos seemed perfect to demonstrate the talents of the KS 300. The warm, expressive singing voice sounded a touch of less balanced as at a MAGNAT quantum 1005 (2800 euros, issue 8/2009) solved for more and more of the boxes. For this noble sound the T + A deserves a big ‘very good’. To do this she looks noble and more expensive, than the price suggests.
