KIRKSAETER MODEL BIPOLE DIPOLE SILVERLINE 60

This speaker is unique, with many functions normally not found in a loudspeaker. The speaker cabinet consists of two speaker chambers, each containing one independent speaker system connected to its own cable terminal. Depending how the cables are connected, the speaker fills a number of different functions. It can hang on the wall and because of the disperse angle of 160 degrees it also does a fine job when attached to the ceiling.

... Used For Stereo Speaker

The left and the right channel of the amplifier are connected to the two cable terminals of the speaker. Because the speaker cabinet has angled sides, you will hear left and right channel at the same time and enjoy full stereo. This sound makes it unique in many installations.

... Used For Home Theatre

For home theatres, connect left and right rear amplifier cable to the speaker, hang it on the wall behind your seating area, or in the ceiling, and you will enjoy full sounds with one cabinet instead of using two rear speakers.
You can use it as a side speaker wired as a bipole or dipole for use in a 5.1 or 7.1 surround system. In a simple Kirksaeter Starter Home Theater, the Silverline dipole 60 is often used as the rear left and right speakers since each side can be wired to independently. Coupled with front speakers such as the Silverline 120, you will have a huge Home Theater sound with only 3 speaker boxes (2 front + 1 rear).

The development of the SILVERLINE Technology has been an examination of a number of experiences and directions of the audio technology over the last 45 years. When the development progresses stop, Per Kirksaeter investigates by means of new angles of view to become a breakthrough in technology by other means. One typical example of this:

In a 3-way speakers system, the midrange cone is made smaller and lighter than the woofer cone to able fast reaction on the faster midrange impulses. A difference in the reaction time, however, leads to a time distortion. Soloists are reproduced through two cones that move with different speed and radiation. The sound picture change corresponding. To avoid this we make one very strong cone of light fiber that plays up to 6000 Hz. Therefore, in Silverline systems the woofer and the midrange have the same cone, speed and radiation. As a result the vocal voices and wooden instruments sound full, uncolored and detailed as the soloist would stay personally in front of you. Enthusiasts invest strongly in fine speaker cables. The cables inside the cabinet most manufacturers ignore. Not so by our SILVERLINE models. Here we use the finest silver plated cables made in Switzerland, each spun of 511 threads for maximum surface and for the fine music impulses. Gold plated biwiring terminals secure no oxidation in many years, so no music impulses get lost. This improves the sound substantially and is good economics because the consumers using High End audio cable do not need to think about expensive rewiring of his cabinets after his purchase. This cable is available separately. The KIRKSAETER tweeter has a radiation of 160 degrees and gives you the full range of the high frequencies regardless if the speaker is placed in the ceilings or at a wall or where you decide to listen in your room. Therefore you can place the Silverline speakers, cabinets or in-walls, wherever you like in your room and always enjoy full High End fidelity and dynamics.
