News 1st Jan 2008
To usher in the new year, we are proud to introduce an exciting new series of car component sets using Wavecor drivers. These sets come assembled with customised dedicated crossovers to deliver superior in-car audio performance of the highest quality and value. All of the car component sets share one common high-end silk dome tweeter, the Wavecor TS030TU01-01, which is matched with different Wavecor midbasses (such as the WF160WA02-01, WF160WA01-01, WF166TU02-01 or WF166TU01-01).
What sets Leda's car component systems apart from the rest in the market is the design ingenuity and engineering expertise that had gone into the Wavecor drivers; featuring farady rings, dual neodymium motors, heat sinks, curvilinear cone profile, CCAW voicecoils, etc. All these quality features and more translate into wide band and smooth reproduction of sound which has very low harmonic distortion. The use of specially treated paper cone strikes a fine balance between poly cones (which can sound smooth but lacking in detail) and hard metallic cones (which can sound detailed but suffers from high Q cone breakup modes). Wavecor drivers, by virtue of their design, are highly efficient, resulting in sound quality that is detailed, natural sounding, dynamic and free from compression.
Each component set comes with a dedicated crossover network which comprises an asymmetrical low Q low order crossover. Employing only high quality film capacitors and aircore inductors, our crossover minimises artifacts that can result from poorer quality parts like electrolytic capacitors and cored inductors commonly found in crossovers used by other brands of car component sets.
Leda's car component sets are a definite improvement over any speaker systems currently supplied by car manufacturers. The bar has now been raised for other after-market car component speaker systems to follow. Whether you are discerning and exacting about the technical specifications of components, or you just want superior sound reproduction which is atmospheric and true to life, you've got to check out our Wavecor car component systems. E-mail or phone Sam at (65) 9752 2868 for an audition!
We have brought in a small range of drivers from HempAcoustics, a North American driver manufacturer famed for their high efficiency full range drivers, such as their famous FR8C, its new sibling FR4.5C, and the sophisticated high-end co-axial CO8V. For the FR8C and FR4.5C, DIY-ing does not come any easier -- no crossovers necessary! With their high efficiency, these Hemp drivers are suitable for both tube and solid state amplifiers, producing a sound that is both dynamic and coherent.
More great news from Wavecor -- their new OEM midrange for Audio Physic is receiving rave reviews (click to read). Expect to hear more interesting developments and introduction of new high quality drivers from this up-and-coming manufacturer soon! As a service to the DIY speaker-building community, Wavecor has added measurement files on their website and you can also import speaker design software such as freeware Speaker Workshop. With these online tools, budding DIYers can now design their own speakers without having to invest in expensive measurement equipment, with accurate and professional results!
We are proud to announce the introduction of a new line of high-end speaker products by Wavecor. A newly established company, Wavecor is founded and backed by a team of highly experienced Danish speaker engineers/designers in collaboration with local engineering and management expertise operating out of China. The top key personnel behind Wavecor come with the combined strength of expertise and decades of experience in designing and manufacturing famous high-end speaker drivers whilst working with companies like Scanspeak /Vifa and Tymphany.
Leda has brought in the full range of Wavecor drivers which boast advanced features like ventilated chassis, multiple and strategically placed shorting rings, copper clad aluminium wire voicecoils on ventilated fibre glass formers, linear motor and suspension designs. All these features and more rersult in a range of Hi Fi and car audio drivers that have amongst the lowest distortion and natural sounding drivers in its class. Wavecor drivers are built for high resolution playback which means that fine details and textures are reproduced without loss, and that dynamics are preserved without compression. The resulting characteristics are precise presentation of space and acoustics of recording venue, unheard of transparency, and sharp and precise focus.
Wavecor tweeters have the right highs and lows: high in efficiency (94db) & extended frequency and transient response and low in resonant frequency and distorion artifacts. To achieve this, high strength linear double neodymium motors, large surrounds, multiple chambers under surrounds and dome, copper clad aluwire voicecoil, vented voice coils, and heat sinks are employed to produce tweeters that are excellent in the reproduction of smooth and extended frequencies that are low in distortion and which compete with much more expensive offerings by other speaker manufacturers. Two versions are offered, with and without ferrofluid.
Wavecor midbasses come in a range of different sizes and chassis (steel stamped and precision cast aluminium) with two motor systems, dual neodymium and ferrite. All share long linear motor designs with linear suspension spiders and rubber surrounds, vented chassis, large vented voicecoils and high quality treated paper cones. The result is wide bandwith, low distortion, low compression drivers. They are available for both Hi Fi and car audio applications.
Wavecor subwoofers represents nothing short of state-of-the-art speaker technology with serious linear X-max , stiff aluminium cone, 2" vented fible glass voicecoil/bobbin, vented chassis, double shorting rings and magnets, linear edge and spider suspensions, etc. They excel in the retrieval of details as well as low harmonic distortion characteristics.
We have added new products by Mundorf . Firstly, their high end tweeter AMT 2340. Mundorf apply their no compromise and exacting standards to speaker driver design resulting in a highly revealing ' fast' tweeter using the air motion transformer principle. These tweeters are finding their way in speaker designs of the highest calibre. With excellent impulse response and open backed, they are ideal for any new dipole or omnidirectional speaker design. For monopole use, these tweeters need their own enclosure.
Two new ranges of capacitors are added, the Mundorf Tubecap specially formulated for Tube amplifiers and Mlytic HC power supply capacitors.
The Tubecap, by virtue of its construction, will offer much lower ESR, longer service life and a faster sound in comparison with the usual electrolytic capacitors. The Mlytic HC power supply capacitors are based on a patented method of especially low-inductance internal contact formation. Thus extremely quick and high pulsed currents are possible. The use of these capacitors alone enables available amplifier concepts to be catapulted to a quality standard of a much higher level.
We have added new values to our existing ranges as well. For the M-CAP SUPREME Silver/Gold- 2.2uF & 3.3uF. M-CAP SUPREME - 1.0uF, MCap - 33uF & 100uF.
In the accessories section, we introduce 2 new products , Mundorf Silver Gold Hook-Up Wire & Mundorf Silver Solder which is lead free.
The Mundorf Silver Gold Hook-Up Wire is 1.0mm solid silver with 1% gold with Teflon dieletric with the same revealing and smooth sound as the famous Supreme Silver Gold capacitors and is excellent as hookup, interconnect or speaker wire upgrades or for new projects. It is available in white or yellow.
For this update , we introduce yet another two drivers from thr Revelator series- ScanSpeak 12M4631G00 Revelator Slit Paper Cone Midrange and 15M4531K00 Revelator Slit Paper Cone Midrange. These two drivers are wide band midranges with slit paper cones to reproduce the most natural sounding vocals and midrange frequencies.
