Supersize your sound
In the same way that a subwoofer extends the low end of your system, Maximum Supertweeters reveal a wealth of detail in the midband and treble. Most striking tough, is the amazing improvement in bass detail. Maximum Supertweeters reproduce high and very high frequencies in the most coherent and realistic fashion, delivering a rich harmonic structure that dome tweeters simply cannot match. Coherent high frequencies affect the brain both physiologically and psychologically,revealing the full potential of your favourite recordings. Maximum Supertweeters enhance and define bass, mid and treble. They are the key to high resolution.
Maximum Supertweeters heighten the sense of realism in music by extending the frequency response of conventional hi-fi speakers up to 90 kHz. Although this is way above the theoretical limit of human hearing the presence of these frequencies creates a sense of naturalness and reveals detail right down into the bass.
Maximum Supertweeters allow you to get utmost pleasure from both digital and analogue formats by accurately revealing high frequency detail above 6 kHz. Even though a CD cannot produce information above 20 kHz, Maximum Supertweeters make the format sound more natural and reveal a wealth of extra detail when compared with dome tweeters. This is because of the much faster response of the ultra-light ribbon diaphragm when compared with the much slower response of a relatively heavy dome assembly.
The Maximum Supertweeter works from 6 kHz upwards making it better able to produce the leading edge of each transient without time smear. That’s why it makes a system sound more relaxed and natural, as it can respond to the signal with greater speed and greater accuracy.
What surprises people the most is the extra detail that they hear in the bass. You might expect the greater sense of ease and openness which they introduce but the harmonic detail that is revealed across the entire audio band is nothing short of miraculous.
The Maximum Supertweeter is engineered to integrate with all high quality speakers with simple connection utilising the 1.5m link cables provided. The Supertweeters are wired in parallel with the main amplifier feed or the tweeter connection at the main speaker. There is a six position level switch which allows for seamless integration with your speakers.
Townshend Maximum super tweeters Review by Ed Momkus @ dagogo.com
"...faster response, smoother top end, and more defined bass and mids..."
"The Townshend Maximums also added a much greater sense of space. This sense of space affected all dimensions: the space between performers; the space above, in front ,and behind the performers; and the layering of the performers."
Townshend Audio’s Maximum Super Tweeters: Taking the High Road by Paul Rigby @ The Audiophile Man
"The presentation was incredibly complex and far richer in terms of maturity and the expansive nature of the upper frequencies but also the added layers in this area that gave the entire presentation a sense of richness and involvement."
Townshend Maximum Supertweeter by René van Es @ the-ear.net
"After turning the Maximums off the stage collapses and stops almost at the edge of the left and right speaker baffle. Depth is also reduced. Decay gets shorter, bass is a little loose although the stereo image is more compact and more precise. I have no idea how this recording was created and what the musicians had in mind, but after experiencing the wideness and drowning myself in the musical energy in front of me there is no way to go back to playing without the Townshend toys if I do not have to."
