Masterful

The Reference 2 K is the second largest model in our high-end Reference K family. Slightly less large and heavy than the flagship Reference 1 K, but no less musical and dynamic! It plays in all nuances of sound and at all levels as calmly as confidently. With its opulent woofer configuration, three 219 mm ceramic tungsten basses are used in each speaker, the Reference 2 K is capable of extreme dynamics. In the generous cabinet volume, the potent bass trio plays in combination with the new "Bass-Guide" bass reflex system breathtakingly deep down. However, thanks to the low-loss wave surrounds that clamp the midrange and woofer and the superbly resolving ceramic tweeter, the Reference 2 Ks impress with their excellent fine dynamics even at low volumes. The acoustically optimized enclosures with the characteristic bow shape and organically curved side walls set standards in terms of radiation behavior, stability and low resonance.

High-end technology

The solid, multi-stiffened cabinets made of multi-layer laminate provide ideal working conditions for the Reference 2 K's excellent drivers. One of these slim 3-way floor-standing speakers weighs an impressive 71 kilograms. In the woofer and midrange, we use our most technically mature and advanced drivers. We take advantage of the excellent material properties of aluminum-ceramic cones refined with tungsten particles. In the tweeter, the excellent 25 mm tweeter dome with aluminum oxide ceramic diaphragm is used. Furthermore, sound-optimized crossover components and the highly effective base design with Bass Guide ensure the highest possible fidelity. The Reference 2 K is equipped with a high-quality biwiring / biamping connection terminal, which allows the low-frequency and mid-high range to be driven separately with different amplifiers or with specialized cables. 24 carat gold-plated, stable screw terminals with a capacity for cable cross-sections up to 10 mm2, ensure optimum signal transmission. The levels for the midrange and treble can be finely adjusted at the connection terminal, depending on personal preferences or room acoustic conditions.

Premium through and through

We develop and manufacture the loudspeaker systems of our Reference K Series in our factory in Weilrod in the Taunus region. This is the only way we can maintain the necessary quality standards, minimize tolerances, eliminate any defects, and keep the high sound requirements for our top products. The Reference 2 K cabinets are made of high-quality multi-layer laminate. In an elaborate special process, the characteristic bow shape of the speaker is milled from solid material. The noble, high-gloss surface finish "Piano Finish" is applied, sanded and elaborately polished in twelve work steps. It gives the Reference 2 K cabinet an overwhelming sense of depth. Acoustically optimized two-piece fabric covers, which are elegantly held in place on the baffle by magnetic fasteners, round off the elegant appearance.

Well combined

For a perfect connection with your amplifier(s), the CantoLink 600 speaker cable, available in our online store, is the perfect choice. It is a high-end speaker cable, developed by our partner in-akustik, which tickles the best possible sound quality out of the speakers.
