Soul- the heart. Everything the Black Moon is, combined with everything the Lens is. The drivers in the Soul are essentially the same as the rest of the Contrast range, but mildly tweaked to suit their use in the decoupled, oversized, 25mm thick solid beech timber baffle. Get right to the heart of the music, without feeling like you’re using a surgical instrument to do so. The Soul will show you every part of your favourite pieces, but keep them all together, carefully arranged exactly the way the performer intended.
Contrast “SOUL”, a floor-standing acoustic passive system, is the new top-of-the-line model in Contrast Audio’s systems. The Contrast SOUL incorporates all of the creation experience of all of Contrast’s designs and developments. Cabinet and foundation of the speakers is made of Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF) and is finished with a high quality, glossy piano finish.
The front baffle is constructed of solid beech wood, and is mounted using a cork gasket to provide vibration control. The system also comes with adjustable stainless steel spikes that can be used to regulate the height.
For the low-frequency section a resonant port, a Laval Nozzle was used which provides:
- a more accurate linear characterization in the low-frequency range
- a lower frequency threshold
- the best possible frequency-shifting characteristics in the mid-range
In order to optimize the system the necessary adjustments in both the loudspeakers and the tweeters were made. Thus the Contrast Audio "SOUL" system is equipped with unique dynamic emitters made especially for that purpose.
