RAGE P & PWR

Derived from the successful HNP series, the RAGE Pro is the evolution. An evolution that might not be necesssary, but already possible.
So instead of it being a name change from HN, it is an add on, offering tweaked products that quite frankly could be overkill.

The RAGE

So what’s it all about? Most people would crossover their midrange at 4-5 KHz, right where their tweeters would be recommended as well. If that’s your settings, then the differences in the frequency range vs the HNP won’t be as audible. Still if you prefer a large slope cutoff on your crossovers, meaning a wider overlap of tweeters & midranges, the Rage is superior.
The upper frequencies of  the RAGE6 / RAGE8 & RAGE10 are designed with a linear, but peaked response of up to 5 dB compared to frequencies below 3 KHz. The peak is best described as removing a slightly muffled sound compared to other speakers, the RAGE simply put, is more open and doesn’t sound as compressed as pro audio has unfairly gotten a reputation to be.

The INSIDE

We still use the U shaped surrounds offering a longer stroke known as excursion / xmax. The U shape offers a tighter kick and extends the sound reproduction in the low end = more bass. Differing from other series, the RAGE P / PWR have fully coated cones, making them better suited for harsh sunny conditions and outdoor use. The PWR being the Weather Resistant one, has a near idential sound signature of the P series, but instead of using a phase plug, the dustcap will prevent moisture & residue to enter inside the speaker.

It’s what’s inside that counts. More than you can see makes a differece, both the P & the PWR uses copper shorting rings to lower distortion, it’s an old trick not always necessary to apply, but on pro audio it makes sense. It features added costs and skills in manufacturing, but there are clear trade off’s. Since efficiency is the key to pro audio, these drivers can get really loud, so why not opt for some that don’t sound distorted? That is the exact fact why some dislike the sound of pro audio. Many are cheaply made, using inferior parts, but designed to look stunning and impressive. Sound performance on the other hand is most likely mediocre.
Doing something right takes skill, time and knowledge. Couple those factors with a decent amount of money and you have a good sounding product. Sugar coat it with our own custom designed voice coils (1.5″ on RAGE6P, 2″ on RAGE8 & 3″ on RAGE10), made to handle both power and maintain efficiency you will feel the RAGE.

Compression

Bullets are the norm, however apart from the more commonly known titanium tweeters, there’s horns.
The RAGECDR is a shallow mount compression driver, coupled with a flat horn. The benefits, besides being more compact than even mid-sized bullet tweeters, is the increased efficiency. Meaning more output with less power needed. In addition the RAGECDR has a wider frequency range, which even can dip into higher midrange and carry its efficiency throughout the audible upper scale.
If you want it all, but for less, even when using way less power, a compression driver is a tempting option.

Bullets

Even though horns are more efficient, the new RAGE tweeter series have been given a full adrenaline boost. These revamped tweeters are now sharper & better than ever in both appearance and sound. New designed diaphragms along with optimization of the magnet has widened the frequency response to improve the sound. Other tweeters easily tend to sound muffled compared to the RAGE tweeters’ more open and balanced sound. The RAGE TT is perfect for shallow mount upgrades, whereas the T1 disperses the audio more efficiently. The 10″ wider frequency response coupled with a 4 dB higher spl output makes the RAGE T1 an apparent choice for the passionate.

*It is essential that our speakers are given time to allow the suspension to soften up. Depending on use, this may take several weeks. While this process is undergoing, it is not recommended to apply full amplification power according to the speakers specs. Once the moving parts have been broken in, the performance of your speaker will increase.
