Overview

ProAc Response D30RS Loudspeaker – with updated and improved bass drivers

With the ProAc Response D30RS Loudspeaker designed by Stewart Tyler, ProAc have taken the recent implementation of carbon fibre from the cones of the Response D40 and Carbon Pro 8 and the Kevlar in Tablette Anniversary/ K6 models and have achieved levels of sound quality that has never been seen before. The time and effort that has been invested into the research carried out for the development of the ProAc Response D30RS Speakers and materials that have been used has allowed ProAc’s engineers to design cones that deliver excellent frequency response characteristics. The ProAc Response D30RS Speakers is the first of ProAc’s models to fully realise the acoustic advantages of carbon fibre.

The Response D30RS Speakers homes a polymer rear coated carbon fibre coned bass driver that has been mounted in a slim and sleek enclosure. Bass loading can be achieved through side vented directional loading, which allows for powerful and precise bass response with superb extension and minimised colouration.

With both ribbon and dome tweeter configurations available, the ProAc Response D30RS Speakers feature high quality HF units previously used in ProAc’s D40 and D40R models, which helps to achieve consistent high quality sound playback. The Response D30RS’s impressive crossover network uses dedicated, highest quality components and multi strand, oxygen free copper wiring. ProAc’s split crossover design enables both bi-wiring and bi-amping options. These qualities all come together to make the Response D30RS an excellent choice for audiophiles. ProAc have seen that ProAc Response D30RS speakers retain the same sonic excellence as the D30RS’s bigger sister models whilst ingeniously scaling them down for those who require smaller floorstanding speakers.

The ProAc Response D30RS Speakers are equipped with spikes designed to penetrate even the thickest of carpets, ensuring your speakers are secure at all times. And when paired with your quality electronics, the D30RS Speakers clean, powerful bass, open colourless midrange and detailed high frequency response can all come together and allow the fantastic potential of the ProAc Response D30RS Speakers to be fully realized.
