Snell’s flagship speaker line is the Phantom loudspeakers.  Previously announced and shown at CES 2009, the Phantom B7 floorstanding loudspeaker is now available at $25,000 per pair.  Snell’s other announcement is the introduction of the Phantom Center speaker to complement the B7 tower.

The B7 has two 4.5-inch magnesium midrange drivers and a 1-inch silk dome tweeter.  At the bass of the cabinet is the 8-inch aluminum woofer.  The thin, elongated cabinet design reports a frequency range down to 30 Hz.

The B7 was designed by Joe D’Appolito and features curved surfaces.  The default finish for the B7 is black gloss.  However, special orders can be made for just about any appearance.

While the B7 is shipping now, the Phantom Center is slated to be released in a couple months and will be available for $7,500.  The Phantom comes with the same two midrange, tweeter and woofer drivers as the B7.  The Phantom Center is capable of single, bi- and tri-amping.
