The Cabasse Antigua MC170's are a new and outstanding option for those wanting the best quality performance at reasonable prices.
Either placed on shelves or on stands, The new Antigua MC170 impress with their easy sonic integration and musical versatility. The three-way speaker is fitted with a new coaxial twoway driver, for a wide dispersion and uncompressed sound reproduction, homogeneous in every direction.
The new two-way midrange/tweeter of the MCl 70 range is a development of the unit responsible for the continuous success of the Cabasse Eole coaxial satellite. lt offers a faithful reproduction of timbres and provides a soundstage with unrivaled realism and depth in its price segment, for both stereo and multichannel use.
The specific shape of the 17cm (6.7in) driver unit was specifically designed by Cabasse for maximum mechanical rigidity and low frequency use, which results in a deeper bass without colouration. The voice coil mounted on Kapton is perfectly ventilated: high power handling and its acceleration abilities are outstanding.
The Cabasse measuring protocol in the anechoic chamber takes into account measurements on the listening axis and at 360° a round the speaker for perfect control of the directivity and global power output in keeping with the Cabasse HDSE principle (Homogeneous Distribution of the Sonic Energy). Direct and reflected sounds are homogeneous, the sound stage wide and stable.
Sold as a stereo pair.
