In order to accomplish that we undertake a lot of research and develope new technology and materials. Audio Designer and Acoustic Engineer Dipl.Ing. J. Lang has over 20 years experience in hifi loudspeaker design and worked many years on the development of an innovative new cone material, a polymer hard foam called 'Polyepicell'. Using the same material for woofers and tweeters we achieve a very homogenous natural sound. Polyepicell has superior properties and combines qualities like stiffness and light weight. The enormous stiffness of Polyepicell reduces bending and the specially designed damping calms the feared cone breakups. The sound of this amazing loudspeaker is therefore extremely transparent and natural and the light weight of the cones allows an accurate and fast impulse response with an impact that leaves listeners astounded. The light weight causes a very high loudspeaker efficiency, which means that the electrical energy from the amplifier is transformed into a big percentage of acoustic energy of the loudspeaker, so amplifiers with little output power can drive our speakers sufficiently and at high volumes.
Since all parts are carefully selected for best performance, designed and assembled at our own premises, a perfect matching and balance can be achieved. No compromises are made and only the best is good enough. Listen to these speakers and experience the exhilarating and dynamic sound.
'KEA AUDIO' was named after the rare mountain parrot 'Kea'. The company was founded 10 years ago in Nelson City, a coastal town in the North of the South Island of New Zealand. Nelson is well known for Art and Design. Many renowned Artists and Craftspeople are involved with our products.
We use many native and unique timbers which are only found in New Zealand. All cabinets and drivers are hand assembled here in Nelson at our own premises. Our Philosophy emphasizes quality, exclusiveness and individual productions for the connoisseur who is looking for something special
This is state of the art loudspeaker design technology.
