The Concept 300 uses a Dual Gelcore cabinet and internal Point-to-Point bracing found in the Concept 500.

Hence, three layers, separated by a non-setting gel which dissipates high-frequency vibrations, generated by the moving drivers, into heat.

The Tensegrity tripod stand is integral in further reducing the transmission of vibrations and providing a stable support system for the speaker (you also buy the speakers and stand together – they’re not available separately).

Constructed from load-bearing low-profile aluminium rods and thin stainless-steel cables, this self-supporting structure, made up of elements either in compression (tubes) or tension (cables), is, “… never subjected to bending force.”

An isolation base plate system is integrated into the bottom of the Concept 300 cabinet.

Not only does it securely anchor the cabinet to the stand but provides a suspension system.

The entire mass of the speaker rests on four springs, damped using a Sylodamp: a polyurethane elastomer tailored to the mass of the speaker that converts vibrational energy in the springs into heat.

To keep the front fascia free from unsightly bolt-heads the Concept 300 allows the mid/bass driver unit to be held in place from behind by spring-tensioned retaining bolts.

Not only does this remove the need for vibration-attracting trim to hide the screws but it, “…keeps the torque constant with no adjustment needed throughout its lifetime, maintaining a consistent performance,” said the company.

The Concept 300 also features the wide-dispersion high-frequency driver and isolating mount developed for Concept 500.

Tweeter

This design, “…protects the tweeter from sending or receiving unwanted vibrations and allows it to be mounted close to the mid-bass driver, enhancing integration with the larger mid/bass driver and improving timing,” said the company.
