Perlisten R5m monitor speaker

perlisten R5m monitor

produced using the extensive technology used to create Perlisten's Signature Series, the Reference 5m monitor loudspeaker is essentially a standmount version of the R5t tower speaker, bringing the same driver layout and flexibility of the 5t to a smaller form factor.

Perlisten 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.

Perlisten R5m monitor loudspeakers

As with all Perlisten loudspeakers, the R5m is centred around the DPC array (read more here), comprising of three 26mm soft domes in a vertical array. The centre dome is the HF unit, covering frequencies above 4.4kHz. The output from this unit is controlled on the horizontal plane to reduce dispersion to focus on the listening position, and reducing HF reflection from side walls. Vertically, its output is highly controlled, vastly reducing floor and ceiling reflections.

The flanking 26mm midrange domes cover between 1.25kHz and 4.4kHz, producing a more responsive midrange that is far less coloured by what would conventionally be a larger driver.

The DPC array sits between two 6.5" drivers covering from 1.25kHz downwards. Both bass drivers are ported out at the rear of the cabinet.  These ports can be fully plugged, providing the performance of a sealed, acoustic suspension cabinet. This results in a more even frequency response across its range.

Used in sealed mode as a bass limited monitor, as you would most likely do in a multi-channel home theatre set up with a subwoofer, the R5m will cover 80Hz-20kHz within a very narrow +/-1.5dB deviation, and produce a peak output of 113.2dB.

All of this tech helps the R5m achieve a THX Dominus rating, capable of effortlessly filling large rooms with cinema levels of sound quality. Used in ported mode, the R5m will still achieve a THX Ultra rating.
