I have for sale a superb pair of Gen 1 Series 2 Avantgarde Duo Omega Horn Loudspeakers in Metallic Jade which is a Porsche colour. I supplied these new to the current owner around 2008. These are one of the last pair of Gen 1 Duo Omegas sold. The good thing about the Gen 1 horns is they have the ability of adjusting the horns up and down on the frame. Something the new ones do not have. This is extremely useful and does aid in the speaker set up, especially in a small or a large room. The subwoofers on this model benefit from the latest driver construction using rubber cone surrounds instead of the earlier foam surrounds, ensuring a very long life for the 10″ drive units. In about 2016 these speakers were upgraded by Graham Tricker (G T Audio) using very high quality capacitors and inductors in the speaker crossovers, as well as rewiring them with better internal cabling and fitting WBT Next-Gen speaker binding posts moving the audio performance to an even higher level. Graham has done this upgrade to several pairs of Duos over the years including his own pair of Gen 2 Duo Omegas.
The Serial numbers are as follows: 103658/103659
Sensitivity:- 107 dB
Impedance: 18 Ohm
Mid Driver: 18 Ohm driver with Alnico Magnet
Midrange horn: 27 inch Spherical Midrange Horn with CDC system
Subwoofer: 2 x 10″ drivers with Intelligent Active Subwoofer with 250 Watt amplifier (each speaker)
The DUO OMEGA is the autonomous state-of-the-art version of the standard DUO and differs in its elaborate OMEGA driver technology.
Both drivers for midrange and tweeter – M2W and H2W – are equipped with OMEGA high impedance voice coils. The nominal impedance of the system is 18 ohm. The magnet of the M2W is made of Alnico material and enables a sensitivity of 107 dB. The midrange is driven without any passive filters and the patented CPC-technology is being used in the crossover of the tweeter.
Bass drivers and amplifier of the active SUB225CTRL subwoofer are identical to the DUO bass module.
Although being visually identical to the standard DUO, the DUO OMEGA is playing in its own class. The substantial progress of the OMEGA drivers does not only show in marginal nuances but become manifest in a completely new sound characteristic. Its the ideal speaker for the avid audiophile.
These are the best condition Duos I have seen in the last 20 years. They have had one very careful owner from new.
Price: – £8500 or near offer.
