Townshend Maximum Supertweeters
  • In the same way a good sub woofer integrates the low end of your system, Maximum Supertweeters  harmoniously integrate the high treble.
  • Maximum Supertweeters deliver very high frequencies in a most coherent manner creating  the ultimate acoustic reproduction.
  • Coherent high frequencies affect the brain both physiologically and psychologically, enhancing the perceived playback of your treasured recordings.
  • The Maximum Supertweeters enhance the bass, mid and treble.

Paul Miller, Editor of HiFi News reveals new research into how Supertweeters enhance high and low frequencies during playback.

“The Maximum Supertweeters can extend the bandwidth of your speaker with astonishing results.”

“If it’s of the performance envelope-pushing persuasion, the Townshend Maximum Supertweeters will undoubtedly take it, and you, to the next level.” Hi Fi Choice November 2002.

“I still have my Maximum Supertweeters, thank goodness but I have tried living with them switched off and, believe me, it felt like, masochism.” Hi Fi News and Record Review March 2003.

The Townshend Audio Maximum Ribbon Supertweeters extend the response of conventional Hi-Fi loudspeakers to 90kHz.

The provision of 7 selectable sensitivity settings ensures compatibility with an enormous range of loudspeakers, ranging from below 80dB/W to above 100dB/W.

Adding the Supertweeter to your audio system will allow you to experience the full benefit of the extended frequency response delivered by the high resolution digital audio formats (DVD-A, DVD-V containing 96/24 stereo PCM audio, and SACD) and to fully utilize the 30kHz plus frequency response available from high-quality vinyl reproduction.

The Supertweeters are supplied with 1.5m of Isolda impedance matched, EDCT Litz wire, terminated with ‘piggy back’ 4mm banana connectors.

Another bonus is that CD and Nicam stereo, together with Dolby Digital, MP3 and DTS compressed digital audio formats, are also greatly enhanced. Just as the sub woofer fills in the bottom end, the Maximum Supertweeters fill in the top end. It makes the music much more real! All Instruments – even double basses – take on an extra clarity that is neither bright nor brash. In fact the sound is both clearer and smoother. The really surprising thing is that when the tweeters are played alone, one can barely, if at all, hear a thing. Remarkably, however, all listeners – even, those having no sine wave sensitivity above 10kHz – experience the same enhancement when the Supertweeters are engaged, describing the sound of their hi-fi systems as ‘more natural’ and comfortable to listen to.

Embodying super-powerful neodymium magnets and an ultra thin eight micron pure aluminium ribbon, the Maximum Supertweeter offers outstanding performance in an easy to drive, compact package. The low frequency -3dB point of the first order crossover is set at 20Khz. Output may be set to suit speakers with sensitivities ranging from 80dB to 110dB, adjusted in steps by an seven position switch on the rear. The correct setting is easily found by trial and error. Input connectors are 4mm banana sockets. All copper conductors, including the matching transformer windings cables, are deep cryogenically treated (EDCT) for unrivalled fidelity.

Pressure relief vents in the sides of the case are provided to allow the air pressure on the ribbon to equalize in the event of sudden pressure changes. The Maximum Supertweeter may be connected directly across the output of amplifiers up to 350W. An automatically resetting fuse helps prevent ribbon damage in the event of overload. The Maximum Supertweeters are best placed centrally on top of your existing speakers. The 1.5m cables are connected to the main speakers’ tweeter terminals.‘piggy back’ banana connectors are supplied to facilitate connection.
