PURE AESTHETICS

As an imposing 3-way floorstanding loudspeaker, the Reference 2 has the potential to provide exceptional and uncompromising listening pleasure even in very large rooms. With the advantages of smaller proportions compared to the flagship of the series, they are perfect for reference level stereo reproduction and are also an excellent choice for home theater applications.

Visually and technically innovative

The cabinets of the Canton Reference 2 are designed according to the latest acoustic findings free of edges. Their elegant form follows function, resulting in a speaker with remarkable characteristics: in addition to its modern design, it is also extremely stable and provides a perfect basis for sound-optimized radiation. The workmanship of the cabinets is of the highest quality and allows for aesthetic integration in any living environment. Four speaker drivers operate in a 3-chamber system, offering perfectly sized volumes for each branch of the 3-way speaker design. The double-bass configuration with 219 mm woofers, in conjunction with the optimized dispersion ratio of the latest generation bass guide, ensures enormous low bass, while also allowing flexible placement of the Reference 2 in the listening room. The 174 mm midrange driver, which is deliberately positioned at the top of the speaker, ensures authentic, lively reproduction of voices. Visually and acoustically the ideal complement is the powerful BC tweeter with 25 mm dome tweeter made of black aluminum oxide ceramic.

Sound optimized

The Reference 2 loudspeakers integrate all drivers flush into the round baffle with the aid of the new three-dimensional ASW (Asymetric Waveguide Ring) cover rings made of polyoxymethylene (POM). These optimize the dispersion characteristics in the high-frequency and midrange ranges. The enclosure design is focused on sound optimization and uses strong multi-layer laminate and sophisticated damping and internal stiffening for low-resonance enclosures. The new crossovers with epoxy resin-glass fabric composite and a copper overlay of 70 µm allows for large dim-ionized conductor cross sections. The arrangement of components on the crossover minimizes magnetic field interference. This precise design and the use of high-quality components ensure optimum performance and precise sound.

Contact

The Reference 2 speakers are equipped with WBT's low-mass nextgen™ binding posts and high-quality gold-plated copper bridges, enabling single, bi-wiring and bi-amping operation. Thanks to their significantly lower mass compared to conventional binding posts, eddy currents are reduced, resulting in a superior sound image. The terminal plate of the Reference 2 speaker terminal has been extended by a level adjustment (Room Compensation). This allows the sound pressure levels of the midrange and tweeter to be precisely raised or lowered in 1.5 decibel steps, optimising the speakers for a variety of listening room characteristics and listening positions.

Processing and surfaces

The Reference 2 speakers are manufactured with the utmost care and precision in Germany, at the company headquarters in Weilrod. Thanks to the use of first-class materials and components, consistent and precise quality is guaranteed. The Reference 2 is available in three exquisitely designed finishes that underscore the high standards of the Reference series. The high-quality walnut veneer is refined using a special sanding technique and matte lacquer treatment, resulting in a captivating, fine-pored surface.
