Peak Consult El Diablo V Reference Loudspeakers

 

There are some brands actually reaching for higher goals in the jungle of consumer and so-called “High-End” loudspeakers. Peak Consult is one of them, but how is that done?

Countless hours of critical listening by many audiophile ears and measurements have gone into making the finest three-way loudspeaker available. An impedance curve and electrical phase character like an electrostatic speaker, the final blend of art and technology have made El Diablo an uncompromising work of art. The State of Art Loudspeaker has seen the light of dawn.

Peak Consult Perspective

 

The El Diablo V is the 3-way loudspeaker in our Reference line.

 

El Diablo V was made to be the “multi performer” in vocal, classical orchestras or in big rock concerts, live as well as in studio recordings. Acknowledged: El Diablo V has been chosen by its sonic and musical behaviour by several artists and studios.

 

 

Enclosure

 

The multifaceted enclosure is handcrafted in our own facilities by Danish artisans in a 1.5” HDF specially glued sandwich material covered by 0,75” solid wood or acrylic. The side panels have been made out of “finger tapped” solid wood or pure solid acrylic. Each wood panel has been hand-chosen and assembled by Danish artisans.

 

The design optimises the off-axis response and minimizes diffraction. In order to minimize acoustical waves, there are no parallel front, back, top or bottom panels. The slant of the front panel aligns the phase and timing between tweeter, midrange and woofer.

 

 

Transducers

 

The tweeter:

 

The tweeter is a 1” soft dome, Hexatech with a non-resonant aluminium chamber. It features a multiple camber with low compression and a machined aluminium faceplate. The tweeter performs effortlessly to sonic extremes and brings the “air” as no dome tweeter before. The most important things about the choice of this construction were the performances. The tweeter has been altered in different ways to become a reference tweeter in the line.

 

The midrange:

 

The special 5” Audio Technology midrange are hand-built specifically for optimal midrange behaviour in The El Diablo V enclosure. The driver features a cone, rubber surrounding and a special voice coil that has been uniquely shaped for midrange in The El Diablo V. The moving system has a vented magnet system that includes Symmetric Drive, optimising the linear directivity. It performs with matchless sound staging ability and an imaging tight and sharp as a Diamond. The Midrange will set new standards to all midrange behaviours.

 

Peak Consult choose to have a very linear stiff and stable cone , to the more fancy cones that in Peak Consult ears are to be more unstable in time and more different in production. The very similar is more coherent instead of use of exotic cones. In the designs Peak Consult decided to do the most linear design that makes the speakers to perform effortless in years to come instead of an exotic appearance.

 

The dual bass system:

 

The dual 9” Audio Technology woofers are hand-built and specifically designed for The El Diablo V. Using very special technology in the moving systems makes it a very low-loss driver. The huge magnet and ventilation that includes Symmetric Drive makes the driver reproduce very tight and extremely low frequencies - second to none, even at low volumes. The Dynamics will blow your body into full “bass satisfaction” even for their sizes.

High frequencies:

 

The El Diablo V includes an acoustical fully compensated second order crossover in the tweeter/midrange section and it has been isolated from the moving system in its own dual sealed department. The El Diablo V only features the best of the best in the critical crossover sections such as solid copper foil capacitors, sliver carbon resistors and special waxed foil inductors by DCA.

 

Low frequencies:

 

The low frequency includes very large foiled inductors. The low frequencies have also been altered by our straight level impedance and phase control. All sealed in its own isolated compartment for minimal sonic radiation.

 

Components:

 

Every component has been chosen for its sonic and musical behaviour, with no consideration for cost. The crossover is crimped and hardwired with silver soldering to prevent oxidation for many decades to come.

 

The crossover sections are sealed in their own compartments to avoid micro-phony distortion and to shield it from electrical and magnetic radiation from rest of the system. Peak Consult uses only the best parts to do this High End loudspeaker. Imagine there is used more than 300 meters of component wires in a speaker and the end user had to decide for his only 2 x something loudspeaker cable. The speaker has a hart and for that only the finest is exerted.

 

Internal wire:

 

Peak Consult uses special OEM made wires for the different frequencies and configured for true Bi-Wire.

The Name

 

The El Diablo V boasts an extremely linear frequency response, on-axis as well as of-axis. This makes it a very accurate loudspeaker in a “real World” environment. El Diablo handles from small vocals to big rock concerts with the biggest respect for the music and soundstages. The name says it all; Like a fast sports car, a thunder and lightning from a clear blue sky or the bull in a bull fighting arena: from 0-60 mph. with a rage in dynamics, movement and sound that will fulfil your needs for dramatics and psychological perception of music.
