Perlisten R5t tower speaker

perlisten R5t loudspeakers

produced using the extensive technology developed to create Perlisten's Signature Series, the Reference 5t floorstanding loudspeaker is equally at home producing the subtleties of music as it is the bombastic soundtracks of the biggest blockbuster movies. And that's a very rare quality.

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.

THX Dominus rated,
Perlisten R5t loudspeakers

As with all Perlisten loudspeakers, the R5t 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. 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 flanking 26mm midrange domes cover between 1.25kHz and 4.4kHz, producing a more responsive midrange that 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 between two 6.5" drivers covering from 1.25kHz downwards, and is ported out at the bottom of the cabinet, making them more rear-wall friendly. 

This downward firing port can be fully plugged, providing the performance of a sealed, acoustic suspension cabinet. This results in a  more even frequency response across its range, as well as better transient response.

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 R5t will cover 80Hz-20kHz within a very narrow +/-1.5dB deviation, and produce a peak output of 111dB.

All of this tech helps the R5t achieve a THX Dominus rating, capable of effortlessly filling large rooms with cinema levels of sound quality. Used in ported mode as a pair of hi-fi loudspeakers, the R5t still achieve a THX Ultra rating.
