Alyssa features a ribbon tweeter that creates a 3D soundstage to expose the most minute details of a well-recorded piece of music. Combined with Alta Audio’s midrange/woofer with a titanium former (bobbin), the result is smoother dynamics, exceptional power handling, and overall improved frequency response
The fourth generation, high resolution, pure aluminum tweeter is responsible for the speaker’s exceptional clarity and dynamics —immediately noticeable for being precise and fast, with a flat high-end response that extends over an octave above the scope of human hearing.
Alta’s 6” woofer includes a 3.1” diameter long-throw voice coil that employs a high-powered motor for smoother airflow that blends seamlessly with the ribbon tweeter, resulting in a standard-setting bass response. All Alta Audio speakers have non-parallel surfaces that reduce internal standing waves to deliver bass clarity you’ll notice right from the start.
The benefit of using titanium in the construction of a woofer is that it adds stiffness and is exceptionally light, allowing for a larger voice coil that ultimately contributes to a demonstrable improvement in sonics, especially when listening to analog and high-resolution digital recordings.
Alta’s proprietary XTL* Bass (patent pending) tuning system relies on specialized sonic geometry to tune Alyssa’s cabinets like fine musical instruments, for bass response that is clear, fast, deep, and powerful. To ensure the cabinet is free of resonances or vibrations that cloud and distort music, Alta Audio’s exclusive DampHard multi-layered, multi-density material extends the clarity of the bass while maintaining the overall dimensionality of the music.
