JAMO CONCERT 9 II RANGE UPDATE ANNOUNCED
Jamo announces its updated Concert 9 II Series range.
Jamo is known for its Danish design principles and has the backing of the renowned Klipsch Group. Today the brand has announced its updating of the Concert 9 speaker range.
Following the updates brought to the Jamo Studio 8 last year, the Concert 9 II passive speaker line which consists of two tower speakers (C 97 II and C 95 II), two monitors (C 93 II and C 91 II), a centre channel (C 9 CEN II) and a surround speaker (C9 SUR II) get a refresh.
The Concert 9 II range employs Hybrid Composition Conical Cones (HCCC) for its main drivers. The purpose-chosen woofers are “capable of remaining clean and clear in their sonic presentation, even when being driven hard”. The word is that ability is due to the cone's stiff-compliant-stiff (SCS) sandwich cone structure.
Additionally, Jamo utilises Long Displacement Surround (LDS) technology to optimise the suspension system around the woofers.
The overall result is a “clean and clear mid- and low-end that transitions effortlessly with the tweeter's performance.”
On the subject of the Concert 9 II's silk dome tweeter, it features on every model in the range. With a custom designed diaphragm, it features a larger surround for extended frequency response, and an under-hung voice coil centred in ferromagnetic fluid for minimal distortion. Furthermore, the tweeter is mounted using Jamo's Anti-Diffraction WaveGuide (ADW) technology.
The C 97 II is a 3-way reflex floorstander and the C 95 a 2-way as is the rest of the range except for the C 9 SUR II which is a 3-way sealed unit. Sitting at the top of the range, the C 97 II boasts a frequency response of 32-24,000Hz and an 89db sensitivity. You can also bi-wire the 24.5kg (each) towers.
Finally, Concert 9 II now also boasts updated aesthetics with natural textiles. The new specifications include furniture-grade, scratch-resistant Black Ash and a limited-edition White Oak finish. Each Concert 9 II speaker is designed to blend seamlessly into modern environments.
Additionally, there's new, premium magnetic grilles (charcoal grey on the Black Ash finish and heather grey on the White Oak), satin painted MDF baffles with a neat rounded finish, polished chrome logos and cast metal stabiliser feet on the floorstanders.
