The VR2 compact floorstanding speakers system delivers the kind of powerful, impressive sound usually associated only with much larger, more expensive speakers. The VRC`s three-way design delivers extremely wide horizontal dispersion and exceptionally high power handling capability.

It features dual woofers for deep, authoritative bass response and low distortion. The placement of the woofers on the baffle has been chosen with extreme care and precision, and it provides two very specific, clearly audible benefits: First, by separating the woofers by a precisely calculated distance, the internal "pipe organ" standing wave—common to all columnar-type enclosures that have their bass drivers closely grouped at one end of the cabinet—is reduced to the point of audible insignificance. The result is less midrange coloration and a commensurate increase in clarity and detail.

The second benefit is smoother, more uniform upper bass/lower midrange frequency response in a real listening room. The dimensional relationship of the woofer to the nearby room boundaries (the walls and floor) in any speaker results in a reinforcement or cancellation of upper bass/lower midrange frequencies corresponding to the woofer-to-boundary distances. By placing the cabinet`s two woofers at optimally chosen different locations, these dimensions are "averaged" over a wider variety of distances, thereby reducing the influence of any single woofer-to-boundary dimension. The result is much smoother, more accurate in-room frequency response, with far less of the typical "peak and dip" characteristic found in conventional designs.

The VR2 model utilizes a newly-developed 4-1⁄2-inch (115mm) midrange driver with a large 1-1⁄2-inch voice coil for superb driver control and extremely high power handling. Its powerful neodymium magnet produces 10 times more magnetic energy than a conventional magnet of the same size, but its compact dimensions allow the tweeter and midrange to be mounted very close together for seamless, perfectly integrated sound with wide, uniform dispersion. A high output 1-inch (25mm) anodized aluminum VR tweeter, with our exclusive patented Amplitude Modification Device (AMD) produces extended, sparkling high frequencies.

The cabinets have extensive internal bracing and are constructed of Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF), chosen for its favorable acoustic characteristics. The result is superb structural integrity that eliminates the spurious resonances and vibration that degrade the sound of ordinary speakers.

MagnaGuard(R) magnetic shielding ensures the speakers` magnetic field does not interfere with the television`s picture, allowing placement next to a TV in a home theater system.
