Basalt composite is part of the material, of which the drivers of Pioneer TS-D1702R speakers are made. Love Hultén, a designer from Sweden, has selected these speakers for his modular vintage HiFi system named Astovox. Thanks to the material, the drivers are able to maintain clarity over a wide audio range.
Highs and lows sound equally good.
The speakers are mounted on the removable stands, the cubic casings are handmade from African Mahogany while the front panels comes in a classic brushed aluminium finish. HiFi system also includes a compact amplifier. The Astovox system is crafted by Love Hultén himself and comes in a very limited edition with only 100 units being made. Love Hultén’s website invites visitors to pre-order either a full set or separate parts of the system.
Pioneer TS-D1702R is not the only model with aramid/basalt composite in the company product range. Thus, Pioneer in-car speakers with basalt composite cone got to the top ten of the best speakers of 2015.
