| Acoustic Research AR98LS |
The LS [ Linear System ] series were developed specifically for audiophiles, musicians and music connoisseurs. The LS technology employs an exclusive AR-designed dual-dome mid-high range driver. The design incorporates a radically new magnet structure, one magnet that both domes share - at a distance of less than 5cm. This creates an optimum hemispheric point source which provides extremely coherent radiation of sound pressure in all directions.
The 98LS feature our best 12" long throw woofer and an 8" lower midrange driver housed in its own acoustic suspension sub-enclosure. All LS speakers have massive power handling capacity and the most sophisticated components and crossover circuit.
