The extravagant cabinet design uses the construction principles of the legendary KARAT Reference. This demonstrated the impressive benefits of trapezoid cabinets for pure, unadulterated sound. In order to completely eliminate all undesirable sound elements caused by internal standing waves, the principle was further optimised for the Karat Jubilée 3.
The special edition KARAT Jubilée 3 combines tradition and innovation in an impressive manner, with production limited to 100 pairs. The final touch sees every loudspeaker adorned with a hand engraved, numbered name plate, which makes each one unique.
When it comes to pure, unadulterated reproduction, ceramic is the sound benchmark. It is unmatched in terms of offering the perfect combination of rigidity and lightness. The one-piece wave guide supports the dispersion characteristics of the system.
4-way crossover network
A crossover network does more than just distribute the sound signals: As an important element in sound creation, it also ensures a balanced impedance response and improves the dispersion characteristics. The crossover of the KARAT Jubilée 3 is designed as a 4-way system.
Titanium midrange speakers
In order to have sufficient surface area of membrane in the critical crossover range, two midrange systems in a D’Appolito configuration work in parallel from a frequency of 130 Hz. In the upper midrange from 500 to 3,100 Hz a single system transmits the signal, as less membrane area is required. This results in optimal dispersion characteristics with outstanding spatial dimensions.
Optimised connection terminals
Four gold-plated metal screwclamp terminals suitable for cable diameters up to 10 mm² and banana plugs enable bi-wiring and bi-amping operation. The high quality of the components ensures virtually loss free signal transmission.
Titanium woofer systems
In the KARAT Jubilée 3 two high performance 200 mm cone drivers give the required deep bass notes. They are supported by two equally large passive membranes. To achieve a balance of weight and power, the system is carefully configured, with one woofer and one passive membrane on each side of the cabinet. This avoids any loss of efficiency while increasing the stability of the bass range.
The six-wire internal cabling with special core and high end sheathing, which was specially designed for the Reference Series, is also used in the KARAT Jubilée 3. This ensures optimal signal transmission from the connection terminal through the crossover to the individual loudspeaker systems.
