According to a company press release, Pass Labs, best known for its high-end electronics, will display the SR1 loudspeaker at the upcoming CES. The SR1 will replace the Rushmore, which was the company’s first foray into loudspeaker design
The release continues by saying that unlike the Rushmore, which was a self-powered speaker with active crossovers, the SR1 is a passive four-way design. The release notes that while the SR1 will be supplied with a passive crossover network, Pass envisions offering an active crossover network in the future that could be retrofitted to the SR1 and would allow the option of quad amplification.
The release goes on to say the SR1 uses Nextel-coated cones and a Crescendo tweeter from Norway’s SEAS (Scandinavian Electro Acoustic Systems). The release says that the SR1 uses four different driver sizes, covering a 10-octave range.
Additionally, notes the release, the SR1 uses dual, furniture-grade enclosures—the large lower enclosure houses 10- and 8-inch drivers while the smaller top enclosure houses the mid-bass driver and tweeter.
