The distinctive hemispherical shell of the Bozak Kettle Drum Speaker is not just an attractive enclosure, not just a rigid baffle, but an integral, functioning part of new concept in sound reproduction. Actual comparative tests are substantiated by critical listening in proving that the acoustically treated Kettle Drum baffle is unsurpassed in tonal realism and listening ease.
Unlike conventional enclosures, the Kettle Drum does not have a sharply peaked cavity resonance. Thus, all types of sound, instrumental an vocal, are heard without muffling or other distortion. Only a hemispherical baffle is devoid of standing waves. Only the Bozak Kettle Drum employs a hemispherical "tympani" baffle.
True Pitch, True Tympan Bass
Distinctly Natural Treble
Exceptionally Low Resonance
Outstanding Transient Response
Attractive, self-contained Enclosure (32" dia. spun steel acustically treated baffle with lifting handle, circular panel and tripod base)
Matched Bozak Team Recreates Audio Spectrum
From one end of the useful audio spectrum to the other, from the plucked string of a bass viol to the uppermost coloratura tones, only true, undistotred pitch is reproduced by the Kettle Drum. The 12-inch Bozak woofer, noted for its robust, life-like bass, and the Bozak dual tweeter, distinguished for its non-piercing highs, combine in the "tympani" shell to offer a tonal depth and balanced roudness that is best described as a "3-dimensional" effect.
Effective Crossover Built In, No Extra Network Needed
Response characteristics of the specially damped woofer and dual tweter are such taht an elaborate crossover filter is unnecessary. A built-in 4 mfd. condenser, used in series with the tweeter comprises the crossover network. This simplification is made possible beacuse identical velocities of propagation of both highs and lows permit no annoying phase distortion.
