Introducing the Titan Hestia
Titan Hestia is a high-end multi-purpose LCR on-wall speaker. Ideally suited for anyone desiring a superior audio experience without large floor speakers occupying the room. Its sculptural appearance and low profile on-wall design integrates superbly with flat-screen TVs. Designed to perfectly compliment the Telesto and Tigris floor standing speakers it can be used as centre and rear speakers in a complete Titan system. It is also ideally suited as an upgrade in other high quality systems needing a competent speaker to fulfil any position in a HT setup. The Hestia is capable of thundering dynamics while remaining perfectly composed, detailed and harmonic.
Luxurious Piano Surface
Titan Hestias exterior surface is made of deep luxurious black, glossy piano lacquer. The elegant finish complements the design and sculpturally adds sophistication and exclusivity to any decor.
Very few on-wall speakers live up to the acoustic performance of large floor standing stereo speakers. The Hestia ups the ante on performance by an order of magnitude by incorporating several advanced core Earthquake technologies.
PMT (Piston-Max Technology): A patented Earthquake technology that enhance acoustical output while keeping a minimal footprint.
The 4 inch wideband woofers are manufactured using the Piston-Max Technology. Piston-Max moves the speaker surround to the outer edge of the cone body, resulting in 20 percent increase of surface area. This translates into more sound and higher efficiency.
AASD (Acoustic Array System Design): A technology combining higher acoustic efficiency with controlled dispersion ensuring uniform coverage over a wider area. Building on the lessons learned from large professional line array speaker systems, AASD uses positive interference to create a wide fully saturated sweet-spot, allowing for better HT utilization than traditional speakers. While at the same time, minimizing energy waste into the off-axis plane.
XLT (eXtra Long Throw): A woofer geometry originally developed by Earthquake for heavy duty industrial subwoofers to expand excursion potential over regular long-throw woofers.
XLT and PMT work in great synergy as each technology expands on one of the two parameters for sound generation – Bore and Stroke. The level of sound possible is determined largely by Bore times Stroke. Ask any car buff and they will say there is no replacement for displacement.
Designed to be mounted on the wall, Hestia features the Vari-Mount installation system that allows the speaker to be mounted horizontally for centre channel application or vertically when used as left, right or surround speaker. Vari-Mount is simple, safe and secure and requires no special tools or hardware.
