Reviews and press reports
"So etwas von hochauflösend bis in den tiefsten Bass, so eine stabile Räumlichkeit mit Tiefe, solch eine Präzision plus aberwitzige Reserven: Das zählt zum Besten, das ich kenne – ein Naturereignis!"
"The TAD Evolution Ones played everything from audiophile recordings to low-bit-rate Internet radio with aplomb and authority."
|Model||TAD E1 (Evolution One) Speaker System|
|Design Principle||3-way vented-box system (Aerodynamic Port System)|
|Drive Units||Tweeter/midrange, coaxial: 3.5cm beryllium dome / 14cm magnesium cone
Woofer: 2x 18cm MACS cone
|Performance Data||Frequency response: 28Hz - 100kHz
Crossover frequencies: 250Hz, 2kHz
Maximum input: 250W
Sensitivity: 88dB (2.83V, 1m)
Nominal impedance: 4Ω
|Special Features||CST* Coaxial Driver (*Coherent Source Transducer)
The midrange and tweeter are configured concentrically to match their directional characteristics and eliminate disruption of the sound, while the tweeter diaphragm is elaborately designed and built from lightweight, high rigidity beryllium. With excellent stability, it delivers outstanding sound localization and a natural sound field over a truly wide bandwidth from 250Hz to 100kHz.

MACS* Bass Driver (*Multi-Layered Aramid Composite Shell)
18CM WOOFER WITH A MACS* DIAPHRAGM
The shell-shaped diaphragm integrates the center cap and cone into a single piece. Coupled to the voice coil via a molded cradle that fully conveys the powerful driving force of the large neodymium magnet, and combined with the turbulence suppressing aerodynamic design of the rear side, this woofer delivers a rich, clear bass and vibrant lower midrange.
*MACS: Multi-Layered Aramid Composite Cone
SILENT* Enclosure (*Structurally Inert Laminated Enclosure Technology)
SILENT ENCLOSURE - ULTIMATE STRENGTH
The SILENT* enclosure features a framework of high rigidity birch plywood combined with MDF for high internal loss, achieving an enclosure that blends high strength with low resonance. The enclosure's teardrop shaped rear section further reduces unwanted cabinet resonance as a result of the improved stiffness of the curved panels. Two available finishes, high gloss black, or wood veneer with a closed-pore satin finish, enhance the beauty of the curved cabinet design.

Aerodynamic Port System
AERODYNAMIC PORT SYSTEM
The bass reflex port utilizes the design concept of the compression driver and horn, seen in the TAD systems used by professionals. It features an aerodynamic port system based on the theory of precise fluid design. Its performance is such that it produces absolutely no air noise, even when the woofer unit is driven at the limit of its excursion range. Superb control of air flow and pressure inside the port greatly contributes to the realization of deep bass reproduction with unprecedented clarity.
