Cascading design excellence. AVID’s design process is logical and unpretentiously straightforward. Establish the philosophy, design the best possible, then cascade the technology. Unmistakably obvious with the Avid Reference Two with its imposing appearance. Directly related to its big brother it shares the same massive construction technique.
Giving nothing away in sonic transparency it allows you to exploit thrilling crescendos. A vast open soundstage, stunning bass power you can feel, filling almost any room with a sense of realism and power and offering audiophile’s a truly realistic listening experience. Taking the same engineered and research approach to resolving critical vibration issues, Reference Two employs the same cabinet construction and vibration damping techniques.
Fully manufactured within our facility in Huntingdon they are crafted from 30 and 20mm aerospace grade aluminum plate and house two 9″ Bass drivers, two 6″ Midrange units and natural sounding 28mm soft dome tweeter. Common also is our method of sandwiching the drivers between metal plates, resulting in a superior fixture, damping and guiding unwanted resonances to our vibration damping element and offering a stunning fixture-free appearance. Each driver retains the Titanium voice coil former for lightness and rigidity and oversized for excellent heat dissipation, so there’s no worry about playing realistically loud music.
Like Reference One, the cabinet is reflex loaded, each drive unit working optimally, maximizing low-frequency performance. Retaining hidden porting minimizes room positioning issues and each speaker is fitted with easy-rolling quick release casters and attractive adjustable solid stainless steel spikes for grounding.
With the ultra-rigid loudspeaker cabinet ensuring a coloration free sound that’s sweet and natural, suddenly you’re rediscovering your music collection not listening to your speakers.
