The PINNACLE® Classic Gold Reference combines two specially developed 6 1/2" woofers with our exclusive 1” Gold Dome tweeter and patented Diaduct Bass Accelerator port technology.

Rock solid bass is achieved by the extra long throw woofers that work in harmony with three Diaduct Bass Accelerator ports. We also employ our unique Split ShelvingTM crossover system that enhances bass performance by concentrating the lowest frequencies for maximum impact. The design also includes our Solid Brass Isolation Cones to ensure optimum bass clarity and definition. The Reference is an outstanding and dependable performer that will exceed your expectations time and again.

"...aptly named, as sonically they are "gold," but at a silver price.  ...delightful in presentation and fantastic in performance."

I absolutely LOVE the Classic Gold Reference & P5.2 speakers, and I appreciate them all the more as I continue to listen to them! (Note my review here) - Doug McLaskey

…absolutely amazing. I put them side by side with many of the prestigious brands and they sounded better than everything I listened to for under $1200/a pair. I can't believe the bass extension on these speakers. I can crank them up and instead of sounding compressed as many other speakers do, they remain clean, expansive and tight. I am proud to own such musical speakers. - Scott Gonzalez

I am most impressed and happy with my purchase. In fact, I love them! Music sounds more clear, more enjoyable, and my friends are completely impressed! Thanks for making affordable, super high quality speakers. - Rama

…we just could not believe the sound. I guess awesome is the only word I can use. It was so beautiful and such a complete sound, it just made me become very emotional. We are hearing sounds from music we never heard before. Crisp, but no harshness. Bass that is just outstanding, and mids that are just great. - Lucille Mycek 

I love my Classic Gold References. - Mike
