Aerial-5T-Rosenut.pngAt T.H.E. Show Newport this coming weekend, Aerial Acoustics will host the first public performance of the new Model 5T bookshelf speaker, which shares many design elements with the company's Model 6T and 7T floorstanding designs. The 5T combines a one-inch�woven ring-dome dual-magnet tweeter with a new 6.7-inch long-stroke papyrus-blend woofer and has a rated response from 48 Hz to 23 kHz. It's available in�Nero Metallic Black, High Gloss Ebony, or�High Gloss Rosenut (shown here).�

The Aerial Acoustics Model 5T represents a complete re-evaluation of the possibilities of the small speaker. Although replacing the popular and respected 5B, the 5T is a completely new design. It offers significant improvements in system sensitivity, dynamics, treble delicacy, midrange transparency, and bass extension without coloration. Designed specifically for placement 2" to 2' from a wall, it offers surprising performance whether used in a bookshelf, on a tabletop or on a stand.

The Model 5T reflects the larger and more expensive Model 6T and Model 7T designs. It shares the same curved cabinet construction, high gloss finish, the same tweeter, similar woofer refinement, and the same high level of crossover componentry and wiring. The 5T's extremely rigid and inert curved shape is created by bonding multiple layers of wood together under high pressure for 48 hours in a 20-ton press. The resulting thick cabinet walls are further cross-braced. The front baffle is attached to the cabinet face with damping glue, which reduces the flow of energy from the drivers into the cabinet walls. The internal volume is damped with New Zealand long-fiber wool specifically chosen for its sonic character. All these steps ensure an inert enclosure capable of reproducing soft or loud music passages without sonic colorations. Finally the Model 5T cabinet is finished by hand in multi-layer Nero Metallic Black, High Gloss Rosenut, or an all-new premium High Gloss Ebony.

The Aerial 5T features the natural sounding 1" woven ring-dome dual-magnet tweeter from the 7T, along with a new 6.7" long-stroke papyrus-blend driver custom-made for the 5T. With the optimized high-order multi-element crossover, the result is a natural life-like presentation and seamless, highly detailed response from 48 Hz to 23 kHz.

"Our commitment to provide a compact high performance speaker in a beautiful package meant we had to design a new front slotted port, refined drivers and crossover topology that allowed placement near a boundary while producing the natural and realistic reproduction of music we have become known for over the last 25 years."--Michael Kelly, President.
