The Elemental Designs W6-6TC book shelf speakers in the new rosewood veneer feature a 1.5″ silk dome tweeter and a 6.75″ pressed poly cone midrange driver. The W6-6TC’s offer a quoted response from 43 Hz – 20 kHz, reaching well within the range of some tower speakers at a fairly compact size. These speakers were designed with 2.0 and 2.1 reference listening systems in mind.
The rated sensitivity of 86dB/1m is a tad low and will permit aficionados to add additional amplification for augmented acoustic aid. While these are classified as book shelf speakers, they aren’t exactly small at over 16″ tall and 10″ deep and they weigh over 25 lbs a piece. Currently, they are only selling 50 pairs a month which is probably due to the high manual labor involved in construction. Retails for $650 pair.
