It's always something of an event when we can announce a new product from
Advent Corporation. You may have noticed that doesn't happen very often.
Because Advent products are thought out carefully and engineered and evalu
ated thoroughly before they see the light of dealers' shelves.
The new Advent2 speaker system is meant to be the most satisfying low-cost
loudspeaker available. It has wider range, higher efficiency, and greater power
handling ability than other systems in its price class, and its overall sound
quality is extremely close to that of the best speakers at any price.
The performance of the Advent2 is the result of a breakthrough not in
design principles, but in the quality of internal components built into a low
cost loudspeaker. Not only does it have more expensive drivers than other low
cost systems, but drivers of a cost usually associated with speakers of twice the
It's low-frequency speaker, for instance, has a magnetic system as massive as that
of the original Advent Loudspeaker. And while one of its two high-frequency
speakers would have been enough for the usual lov-cost loudspeaker, it uses a
pair to achieve power-handling equal to that of much more expensive systems.
What makes this level of quality possible for the price is the first use of modern
plastics technology to produce an enclosure that equals the acoustic perform
ance of a wood cabinet at far lower cost. The money saved has been put directly
into the speakers themselves.
The handsome, warm - white molded cabinet of the Advent2 wasn't designed
simply to look different or provide something new to advertise, but to help
achieve the highest possible performance-per-dollar in a loudspeaker. It is a
combination of high-impact thermoplastic for its outer shell and high-density
polyurethane foam for its inner core. Lighter in weight than an equivalent wood
cabinet, it is easier to mount on a shelf. Its acoustically transparent (and non
resonant) metal grille provides excellent protection for the drivers. And both ?
the shaps'end finish of tha" molded catlnefhave helped produce'orie of the very
few loudspeakers at any price with something to offer the eyes as well as the
ears, a really graceful and distinctive appearance that looks very much at home
in a home.
