The flagship in the AQ fleet.The Passion Loudspeakers are based on 25 years of expert loudspeaker design and the exquisite lines of the highly advanced enclosure designed by industrial design studio Novague. Passion took two years to develop with progressive know how of the preceding Donna series. Cost was no object in the development of the Passion series, which established new absolute criteria and desire for impeccable musical delivery. Out of this passionate desire Passion was born.
Novague is a cutting edge industrial Design Studio based in Czech Republic that has received many design accolades. Their name is synonymous with ERKO R2 Car, The EDGE Chair, Favorit bicycle and the Solaris motorboat.
To achieve full range sound AQ Passion is designed as a three-way speaker with finely tuned bass reflex enclosure. Baffle is an asymmetrical shell consisting of a proprietary sandwich laminated wood-fiber material with integrated active system of internal damping BDS. Outstanding Danish Scan-Speak drivers were selected for all three sections, providing impeccable integration.
Tweeter section is highlighted by a 1” Illuminator high frequency driver with a field of six neodymium magnets, forming a symmetrical drive SD-2 with its own acoustic chamber. Positive impact on the directional characteristics of high frequencies has integrated aluminum phase plug, which also provides heat dissipation. Illuminator has a maximally balanced frequency response up to 45 kHz. The oscillating part is composed with half of the toroid and not a spherical cap, as usual. To reduce the diffraction, a damping rubberized rosette is inserted around the tweeter’s membrane.
