It never ceases to amaze us how little consideration is
given to the crossovers used in a loudspeaker. Contrary to popular belief, a crossover
circuit does much more than simply act as a stoplight directing the flow of sound
coming into the speaker. Crossover circuitry also shapes impedance-, phase-, and frequency-response--all
of which drastically affect the sonic characteristics of a speaker. Rocket Loudspeakers employ precision phase-optimized, multi-element-impedance
crossovers designed by noted loudspeaker guru Dick Pierce,
who brings an award-winning pedigree of over twenty years of industry-recognized
objectivity and experience to the Rocket family. Mr. Pierce's crossover designs were
carefully chosen to present easy-to-drive resistive loads so that expensive amplification is not required
to make Rocket speakers sound spectacular. Mr. Pierce's use of special Zobel
network circuitry to compensate for rises in impedance at higher frequencies
(a common problem that plagues lesser speakers) means that Rocket Loudspeakers
by ONIX exhibit silky-smooth
midrange and tweeter response as well as crisp, unmuddied bass output.
As you might expect, all Rocket Loudspeakers are internally wired with heavy
guage ONIX-brand speaker wire.
