Lotus Elite
Lotus Elite Signature

The Lotus series embodies Alón's third generation open baffle technology, borrowing many of the concepts from the Grand Reference System.

Both the Lotus Elite and the Lotus Elite Signature use two 8-inch low frequency transducers, each in a separate sealed chamber. These chambers are not only separate but are of different sizes, enabling the tuning of the woofers to different frequencies, and so providing improved speed-bandwidth product and a smoother room LF response. Along with greater power handling, the dual woofers also provide improved room loading in the lower mid range and mid bass, while maintaining the transparency and transient response of our single woofer systems. Both woofers are run in parallel for maximum amplifier control.

All of the loudspeakers in the Lotus Series feature midrange and high frequency transducers that are deployed in a 45 degree mirror imaged array on an open baffle (the same as the Grand Reference) to provide more realistic image sizes while retaining excellent image focus. A cast frame, tri-laminate 5¼-inch cone midrange reproduces the critical voice range without coloration. A 1-inch aluminum dipole dome tweeter reproduces the high frequencies.

The Lotus Elite Signature adds different woofer and tweeter magnet structures, and features an external crossover to eliminate coloration due to the electric, magnetic and vibrational interactions that can occur at high volume levels when a crossover is mounted inside the speaker enclosure. The dual woofers take advantage of the additional cabinet volume by being tuned to extend bass response even lower.

Removable front and rear grilles allow the Lotus series the most open sound possible - completely free of obstructions for the midrange and tweeter.
