ProAc Response D48R



Areas of improvement have been mid-range detail and a cleaner, faster and more extended bass response.

A new studio monitor quality bass driver was designed for the D48. It features a special impregnated cone and mid frequencies are tuned by a cap of greater size than standard.

This gives the new unit greater mid-range detail along with excellent bass control giving a tighter and more extended response.

The two new bass drivers are each loaded through their special floor loading with side vents, this makes the loudspeaker easier to sight and reacts less to surroundings.

The two bass units are then seamlessly mated to their ribbon or dome tweeter depending on your preference.

With such a large slim floor standing design the sound stage is superb being very large and with pinpoint imagery.

Another achievement for the D48R is its ability to create large orchestral works as well as heavy rock music.

The ProAc D48R has a high quality filter network designed by Stewart Tyler comprising of the finest components, ProAc cable on a special board.

The filter is also split for bi-amping and bi-wiring.

This is one of the best designs from ProAc and should please all audio files regardless of their taste in music.

ProAc Loudspeakers

Even in the short history of high-end high fidelity, few companies have lasted the course. Even fewer have consistently developed and produced high quality products which have earned international acclaim. ProAc is one such company. The ProAc range is, as they say, reassuringly expensive. We do not make cheap loudspeakers and certainly do not produce cheap sounds. Happily, many thousands of audiophiles worldwide agree with our philosophy. Every ProAc loudspeaker is hand-crafted, with our technicians individually responsible for the building and testing of each unit, from the flagship Response models to the diminutive Tablette. Build quality alone is unsurpassed, each cabinet being meticulously constructed, damped and finished in real wood veneer. Only the very finest components are used in ProAc loudspeakers, with each new model reflecting the very leading edge of audio technology. Indeed many models now incorporate dedicated drive units using our own basket, cone and magnet assemblies. Drive unit performance is fine-tuned through expensive and sophisticated crossover networks. But all the finest cabinets and components in the world are redundant without inspired design. And for a quarter of a century Stewart Tyler, Chairman and Chief Designer has been responsible for putting it all together and producing the performance. He alone decides the cabinet size and configuration, drive unit layout and crossover design and all the other factors which combine to produce some of the most cultured sounds available in modern audio. ProAc loudspeakers are available through a network of enlightened dealers who will be pleased not only to put our models through their paces, but to give informed advice on partnering equipment. When you think you've heard the best, then go and hear ProAc.
