The Floorstanding Speaker

The floorstanding speaker is still a basic element of a good hi-fi system, since there is enough volume for the bass driver - a prerequisite for good bass reproduction. And besides, the tweeter is automatically at the right height - ear level. Below are some solutions by all major driver manufacturers.

Alcone by RCM

Alcone/Scan Speak Pascal XT
Alcone stands for aluminium cone and is a product range by RCM. The drivers feature a rigid cone and show, nevertheless, only a moderate resonance.

Alcone was founded by Ralph Mantel in 1988, offering metal cone drivers at reasonable prices. All drivers feature exceptional signal adherence and excellent decay attenuation. Alcone mids and bass drivers display an aluminium sandwich cone with a surface that has been hardened through anodising. The result is an enormously light and yet rigid cone, producing an airy and lifelike sound.
