Stenheim Reference Ultime Two

Ul times two – That's the new Reference Ultime Two from Stenheim of Switzerland [$150'000/pr]. It's a 5-driver 3-way in a d'Appolito configuration with biwire terminals. The 12-inch woofers vent through rear-facing "laminar flow" reflex ports. Then come 6.5" sealed midranges and in the center of the array a 25mm sealed tweeter. Each 154 x 37 x 50cm cabinet is built from thick aluminium panels to weigh 231kg. Half-space sensitivity is a claimed 95dB, bandwidth 25Hz – 35kHz. This is a slightly smaller version of the company's flagship so does away with the motorized center array, super tweeter and active option.
