GoldenEar-Aon-2-and-3-bookshelf-speakers.jpgThe Aon 2 and 3 are compact bookshelf speakers that were originally developed for use as near-field monitors in professional mixing applications. The design goal was to produce modestly-sized shelf or stand-mountable speakers comparable to GoldenEar's Triton Two Towers.

Both Aon models incorporate GoldenEar-designed cast-basket bass/midrange drivers (6" in Aon 2, 7" in Aon 3) with technology derived from the midrange units developed for the Tritons. In addition, they both use the High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) high-frequency radiator used in the Tritons. Lastly, each Aon model utilizes two side-mounted planar low-frequency radiators (6.5" in Aon 2, 8" in Aon 3) in order to properly load the bass/midrange drivers.

Projected availability: late 2011.

Projected Retail Prices: Aon 2- $399 each, Aon 3- $499 each.
Frequency Response: Aon 2: 42 Hz-35 kHz, Aon 3: 38 Hz-35 kHz
Dimensions: Aon 2: 12"H x 8"W x 10"D, Aon 3: 14"H x 9"W x 11"D.

GoldenEar-Invisa-Series-In-Wall-Speakers.jpgGoldenEar Invisa Series loudspeakers are the company's entry into in-wall/in-ceiling speakers. GoldenEar's initial introduction consists of the Invisa 650, Invisa 525 and the Invisa Home Theater Reference (HTR) 6500. All three models incorporate a magnetically attached grill-covered/hidden flange construction that helps them to blend in.

All three models incorporate a High Velocity Folded Ribbon (HVFR) high-frequency radiator similar to the unit used in the Triton Two Tower. The Invisa 525 and Invisa 650 utilize a one-piece driver/frame/flange construction in order to minimize their footprint. The Invisa HTR 6500 incorporates GoldenEar's FocusField Technology with a cast-basket 6.5" bass/midrange driver and an HVFR tweeter that are angled under the grille for performance as a main speaker in an in-ceiling home theater and music system.

Projected availability: late 2011. Retail prices have not been set.

GoldenEar_ForceField_5_Subwoofer.jpgGoldenEar Technology's latest addition to their subwoofer line up, the ForceField 5.

This new subwoofer incorporates all the technology introduced in the ForceField 3 and 4 in a larger and more powerful low-frequency model. The ForceField 5 combines a long-throw 12" subwoofer (which incorporates a huge high-gauss magnet structure) driven by a GoldenEar-designed DSP-controlled 1500-watt digital amplifier, pressure-coupled to a downward-firing 12.75"x14.5" quadratic planar infrasonic radiator.

There is a direct-coupled Sub/LFE input as well as L & R speaker-level inputs (5 way binding posts) and 100Hz high-passed L & R speaker-level out (5 way binding posts) as well. In addition, there is an adjustable low pass filter for the speaker-level in as well as a level control.

Projected availability: late 2011

Projected retail is $999.
Low Frequency Extension: 12Hz.
Dimensions: 14'5"H x 15"W x 18"D
