Perlisten S4b bookshelf speakers,

representing the pinnacle of Perlisten's extensive research and development, the Signature S4b bookshelf loudspeaker is equally at home producing the subtleties of music as it is the bombastic soundtracks of the biggest blockbuster movies.

The S4b will certainly be stiff competition to many established high-end speaker brands out there

Perlisten at the little audio company,
Perlisten Signature DPC array,

At the heart of every Perlisten loudspeakers is the DPC array - Directivity Pattern Control, provides controlled dispersion in any type of room, and benefits music and home theatre alike.

The Signature DPC array comprises of a 28mm Beryllium HF unit, and two 28mm Textreme carbon midrange domes, covering all frequencies above 1.1kHz.

This array runs throughout the Signature Series, ensuring consistent sound characteristics regardless of the combination chosen for a multi-channel setup.

S4b on dedicated stands,

As with all Perlisten loudspeakers, the S4b is centred around the DPC array (read more here), comprising of three 28mm domes in a vertical array. The centre Beryllium dome is the HF unit, covering frequencies above 4.4kHz. A carefully formed waveguide controls horizontal dispersion to reduce side wall reflections. The same waveguide restricts vertical dispersion even more so, vastly reducing floor and ceiling reflections.

The vertically flanking 28mm Textreme carbon midrange domes cover between 1.1kHz and 4.4kHz, producing a more responsive midrange that is far less coloured by what would conventionally be a larger driver. Their dispersion is also controlled in line with the HF unit.

The DPC array sits above a 7" Textreme carbon bass driver covering from 1.1kHz downwards. The sealed cabinet makes them more wall friendly. This arrangement can provide in-room bass extension down to 30Hz.

The S4b will cover 100Hz-20kHz within a very narrow +/-1.5dB deviation, ideal for use with a subwoofer in a home theatre syste, or as a 2.1 stereo system, and produce a peak output of 111dB.

All of this tech helps the S4b achieve a THX Dominus rating as a surround speaker, capable of effortlessly filling very large rooms with cinema levels of very high sound quality.
