Default New Bob Carver Line

Bob Carver, LLC has just announced a radically new Amazing Line Source (ALS) Speaker to be debuted at the Axpona Trade Show in Florida, this March.

The new ALS is claimed to present a huge and majestic soundstage that extends well back and much wider than the speakers themselves.



A line source speaker is simply a speaker that extends from near floor to near ceiling, so that the speaker to room boundary is imperceptible to the listener.

ALS Preliminary Specifications:
Height: 8 Feet
Cabinet: 1 piece extruded aluminum cabinet
Number of front firing 8 ribbons: 13
Number of side firing 4 high excursion drivers: 22
Rated Power: 2,000 watts
SPL: 121 dB
Sensitivity: ‐96 dB

The ALS will have a MSRP of $22,000 U.S. and will ship in May 2012. Look for more details at: http://www.bobcarver.com

I heard them in Jacksonville and I'm not impressed....yet. Bob was still having problems voicing them during the show and the presentation seemed rushed. One of the competing dealers said that he believed "Bob flew too close to the sun this time"
Bass presentation was very deep and full but the highs sound a bit bright (voicing?). They were still voicing them when I left Sunday.
