The Radiance 3 is a three-way floorstanding loudspeaker containging a Neodymium ring tweeter. The low-frequency and mid-range drivers contain twin-wound aluminum voice coils. Suprisingly though, the three-way design only claims a 40-45Hz bottom end, which means actually about 60Hz. A lot of information will likely be missing at the low-frequency range of these speakers, making a subwoofer a requirement and not optional.
The Radiance 1 and 2 models are designed for bookshelf systems or speaker stands. The Radiance Center speaker uses the same technology as the three-way model. The series also contains a subwoofer. However, specs are not provided for this speaker.
The speakers are treated with real-wood veneers and curved lines. The price for the center speaker is $800. The Radiance 3 is $3,000/pair. The Radiance 2 is $2,000/pair. The Radiance 1 is $1,200/pair and the subwoofer is $1,200 on its own.
