In the truest sense of the term, the CWT 1000 SE is the slightly smaller brother of the CWT 2000 SE. Its overall design is identical, but the cabinet and the mid-range and bass drivers are slightly smaller. The CWT 1000 has been revised and has received two additional mid-range drivers, which improve the radiation pattern in the crossover section between mid-frequency and high-frequency range.
The electrostatic unit is of identical construction to that of the CWT 2000, and its circuitry is similar. For this reason, it is equally effective at transmitting the entire high-frequency range from just under 2000 Hz to more than 40 kHz – even well off-axis!
The 12 cm mid-range unit is of similar design to the 15 cm mid-range driver and offers the same superb ability to handle the full vocal range from 200 to 2000 Hz. Once again this unit’s outstanding attributes are its dynamic ability, its inherently lively nature, and its unbelievably natural sound. With this size of cone, a phase plug is not sensible, and unnecessary in any case.
A sealed cabinet offers many advantages, but the design is extremely demanding when required to generate a very low cutoff frequency. This calls for bass units with a very low resonant frequency, capable of extensive excursion, with an exceptionally powerful magnet, and designed to cope with extreme loads. Our drive units fulfill these requirements perfectly! Since the speaker units are subject to enormous acceleration forces, the cones are impregnated with an extremely hard fiber/carbon mixture.
The demands on the dynamic ability of the mid-range drivers are very high, since the electrostatic unit and the bass units exhibit very sophisticated excursion characteristics, and are capable of generating very high sound pressures. For this reason, the new mid-range drivers are amongst the most advanced in existence: this superb unit features a gigantic magnet, a large coil, an effectively damped cone with integral stiffeners and a modern diecast aluminum basket.
