Design Elegant, ellipse-shaped design gives the D 590 a distinctive sculptured appearance, while ensuring a minimum of internal sonic distortions as well as inert cabinets. The cabinet shape also provides an optimal environment for the down-firing woofer, enabling it to reproduce even the lowest frequencies, such as those of a cathedral organ. Cabinet The D 5 design offers a cabinet that is larger than it looks, while the arched shape also dampens standing waves. The cabinet sides are of a unique sandwich structure, comprising an MDF board with longitudinal grooves and a layer of fibre board. Extremely rigid, the cabinet features internal bracing that makes it sonically inert and prevents unwanted vibrations from colouring the sound. Down-firing woofer This unique feature minimises one of the major barriers to good sound reproduction.To avoid boomy bass reproduction, loudspeakers must normally be placed well away from the wall – often impractical in many living rooms.When a woofer fires downwards it couples with the floor, making placement less critical. In other words, this speaker can be placed close to the wall. D’Appolitto configuration The symmetrical configuration of two midranges and a tweeter controls the sound dispersion, i.e. wider horizontal dispersion makes the listening position less critical, while higher vertical focusing results in fewer reflections from floor and ceiling. 570 vs 590 The difference between D 590 and D 570 lies solely in the size of the cabinet and drivers. In larger rooms, D 590 and D 570 can really show what they are made of, though they are also preferable in small rooms where the emphasis is on achieving high sound pressure levels and deep bass.
