| THE CALIBER
OF OUR PARTS IS MATCHED ONLY BY THE EXPERTISE
WITH WHICH WE COMBINE THEM.
PINNACLE woofers are highly specialized
instruments. We choose from a wide variety of available magnet, basket
and diaphragm materials. Our engineers thoughtfully combine custom
tailored surrounds, pleated spiders and multi-layer voice coil
assemblies to create woofers with unique capabilities. Because of our
commitment to the highest design standards and our attention to subtle
details such as flared vent pole pieces, high temperature former
materials and specialized cone dampening compounds, you are assured of
unsurpassed low frequency performance.
|| Our crossover networks, "the brains
inside the box",
reflect our commitment to using only the best possible materials and
technologies. Our concerns with issues such as phase coherent
circuitry, resonance compensation and impedance control all contribute
to the exceptional performance of our products. Superior tweeter
function is assured by our use of premium grade capacitors. Critical
circuit sections are governed by metallized polyester film and
polypropylene dielectrics. Gripping bass performance is maximized
through the use of heavy gauge inductors, precision wound on air or
massive steel cores. Our use of higher order, low Q,
Linkwitz-Riley type crossovers improves power handling. Each model's crossover, therefore, is
customized to satisfy very specific goals. This process ensures that every PINNACLE speaker
fulfills its highest performance potential.
Our design efforts transcend the
throughout the PINNACLE family of products are many value added
features that ensure a completely satisfying listening experience. Many
of these user friendly features would typically be offered only at much
higher cost, if at all. The example pictured is of our Solid Brass
Isolation Cones™. We include this valuable feature,
which enhances bass clarity, as standard equipment on selected speakers. You'll also find
other special refinements such as our gold plated biwireable binding
post connectors, internally braced cabinets, non-skid rubber feet, and
video shielding to name just a few. Each model sports features best
chosen to fit the product's various applications. This total product
approach is our signature of completeness to the PINNACLE family of
Pinnacle's research and development team use a combination of
state-of-the-art equipment and the well trained ear.
All of our design engineers are musicians as well as
trained audio scientists. The most valuable
analytical tools that we have at our disposal are
the ears of people who not only have an
understanding of what good sound is but also a
passion for the excellence of sound. All of our
speaker designs must pass a rigorous series of tests
to not only prove that they will stand the test of
time but also, and more importantly, that they will
reproduce, with the utmost quality of sound, a wide
variety of material. This is why every speaker
design is not only measured, tested, and tortured by
being put through many quantitative analyses but
also is personally auditioned using various musical
and Home Theater tracks by all members of the design
team. We stand by our designs with the longest
warranty in the industry. You can rest assured that
when you buy a Pinnacle Speaker you will be getting
the best quality and value for your investment.
The Pinnacle design team has over these many years, endeavored to find ways to make the best better using innovative and creative technical solutions. Some of these solutions are listed below:
a cathodic arc impregnation process, the Titanium
tweeters used throughout our Quantum &
lines have a very thin layer of diamond deposited on
their domes to enable the high tensile strength,
while retaining the light mass, needed for crisp
undistorted high frequency output.
pairing specially designed amplifiers with high
power woofers we have created several lines of
powered subwoofers that are relatively small yet
have surprisingly high bass output levels.
Neodymium magnets enable an articulate & detailed
response without taking up the space required by
conventional magnets enabling smaller, high output
Compression Subwoofers achieve low bass
output in a cabinet just 1/2 the size normally
Tongue & Groove cabinet construction ensures solid
and stable non-resonant enclosures that can
withstand the continuous vibrations of the speaker
Bipole Subwoofers use two opposing woofers,
specially aligned with the amplifier, to reproduce
levels of very low frequencies that would be nearly
impossible to reproduce in a single woofer system.
Split-shelving crossover networks enable woofers to
focus strictly on low frequency performance and
produce great bass power.
cabinetry and non-parallel wall cabinet construction
aid in making extremely strong non-resonant
multiple driver systems our specially designed
crossovers minimize the effects of lobing and comb
filtering and ensure a smooth frequency response.
their excellent stiffness-to-mass ratio, many of our
in-wall & in-ceiling speakers use special Kevlar
cone woofers for superior stability and outstanding
detail at all power levels.
Black Rhino line of powered subwoofers takes
advantage of a high efficiency Digital amplifier in
conjunction with a very powerful motor structure on
the active 'fatboy surround' woofer and a specially coupled & weighted
passive radiator to enable production of enormous
amounts of earthshaking bass.
high mass of our Isolation Cones minimizes low
frequency transmission to the floor maximizing low
frequency transmission to the listener.
in-wall & in-ceiling speakers all feature pivoting
tweeters enabling the listener to direct the sound
to their listening area.
SLIMsub 66 was designed to be placed on a shelf or
floor, flush wall mounted horizontally or
vertically, pivot bracket mounted in any
orientation, or placed under or behind your sofa,
table or chair! Our PIN AMP 800 amplifier was
designed to drive one, two (for a "wall of bass") or
even four SLIMsubs (two in the front, two in the
rear) for a unique & enveloping surround subwoofer
Patented “Diaduct” technology allows for lower &
louder bass output from our vented speaker designs.
Classic Gold Surrounds &
Subs take advantage of existing room geometry to
enhance both the bass output & the projection of
sound into the room.
unique OC-HT1 speaker enables: Flush Ceiling, Flush
Wall Mount, or Inverted Wall Mount options.
