Double Drive

Monitor Speaker w/ Super Tweeter




         Mark & Daniels regular version Ultrumax-M1-ST and the enlarged version Ultrumax-M2-ST speakers are similar in both design concept and basic structure, and they are also as the premium versions extended from the Ultrumax-M1 monitor speaker. The major feature of the -ST speakers have integrated M&Ds famous Omni-Harmonizer super tweeter function on enclosures top; and the new Ultrumax-M2-ST has employed two state-of-art DM-9a super-wideband AMT drivers on the enclosure front so be able to significantly gain a system dynamic and SPL output capability. In addition, the two AMT drivers have been assembled with an included angle that may effectively improve for vertical dispersion characteristic for the system. Ultrumax-M2-ST is therefore, a good choice for hi-end audiophiles using in mid to large audition rooms, as his monitor speaker.

         It is the common characteristic for tweeter drivers that their emitting directivity will be sharper/narrower when playback for higher frequencies; people may feel the music some unnatural during audition therefore. Add on the DM-6b AMT super tweeter + cone diffusor with omni-directional (360 degree) scattering; and it is purposely designed to respond only to musical High Frequency harmonics, from 7KHz up to 32KHz, the very high frequency band so it will not affect the positioning when music playback but be able to obtain a more vivid spatiality with the High Frequency harmonics by producing a certain proportion of indirectly HF reflections to the listener. This thereby achieves better acoustic spatiality in the very high frequency band and gains a lifelike ambiance.

-Pick up the CAM diffusor then use a hexagonal wrench to slightly loosen the 4 screws on its top so the 4 stainless steel posts may be relax a bit

-Insert diffusers 4 posts properly into the 4-hole position on the Harmonizers top

-Firmly press the diffusor with one hand, then properly lock the 4 screws on its top plate with the hexagon wrench
