Following the success of the Adagio and Adagio Junior loudspeakers, Acoustic Zen set forth to create another ground-breaking loudspeaker design based on our no compromise philosophy.
The Crescendo Mark II is a three-way full range loudspeaker built on the same component, cabling and cabinet quality of the Adagios. It incorporates two 5 inch midrange drivers, two 8" woofers and one horn-loaded ribbon tweeter all in a transmission line design. Like the Adagios, the upper half of the Crescendo Mark II is a D'Apolito MTM configuration, featuring two 5 inch midrange "underhung" voice coil ceramic-coated drivers around a 2 inch horn-loaded ribbon tweeter. In addition, the bottom of the Crescendo Mark II tower features two 8 inch "underhung" voice coil ceramic-coated woofers.
Now in its second generation, the Crescendo Mark II features drivers with larger magnet assemblies for even higher linearity and heavier and reinforced cabinets for even lower resonance and overall lower distortion. The resulting sound is remarkably clear, full, accurate and lifelike.
