Improved High Frequency Response

An innovative waveguide, coupled with a redesigned, more open grill design, improves the upper high frequency response of the Debut Reference’s 1” soft-dome tweeter.

Full Perimeter Bracing

A newly implemented full perimeter brace, connecting the top, bottom, and side panels, effectively reduces cabinet vibrations, resulting in minimized audio coloration within the cabinet.

Cast Chassis Woofer

The recently developed cast chassis woofer enhances stiffness, reinforcing the front baffle and effectively minimizing resonances within the chassis and cabinet. Paired with our custom aramid cone that offers even greater stiffness and damping, far superior to polypropylene or paper.

Dual Flared Slot Port

The newly introduced dual flared slot vent enables enhanced bass dynamics by delivering higher bass output with reduced noise levels.

Premium Finishes

Debut Reference showcases premium finishes, offering a Walnut cabinet paired with a black painted front baffle, or an Oak cabinet complemented by a white painted front baffle ensuring these speakers blend seamlessly into any home decor, making a statement without taking up unnecessary space.
