Stratton Acoustics introduces Element 12 loudspeaker

UK company Stratton Acoustics has launched its new Element 12, a two-way, reflex-loaded speaker design with integral stand. Created by the same duo that conceived the company’s Elypsis 1512 – David Fowler (founder, designer and manufacturer) and Phil Ward (electro-acoustic engineer) – Stratton says the Element 12’s performance aims are identical: “to give a singular, uncommon focus on dynamics, rhythm and engagement, but contained within a smaller, more easily accommodated enclosure”.

Formed from 26mm/46mm bamboo ply panels, the Element 12’s internally braced cabinet houses a single, custom-made 305mm paper mid/bass driver with dual voice coils and a NeFeB (neodymium-iron-boron) magnet motor system. Twin reflex ports – located out of sight on the underside of the cabinet – are tuned to deliver an in-room response down to a claimed 38Hz.

High frequencies come courtesy of the same 29mm soft dome tweeter used in the Elypsis 1512, housed in Stratton’s patented Mechanically Isolated Tweeter Assembly and, once again, using a NeFeB magnet motor. Sensitivity is quoted at 94dB with nominal impedance of 8ohm.

Supporting the speaker is an integral stand, formed from 3mm-thick, powder-coated, structural steel panels – based on Voronoi geometry – underpinned by a high-gloss bamboo ply and natural cork base. Initially, the speaker will be available in four high-gloss mirror finishes: Piano White with Silver, Piano Black with Black, Gold, Maple with Silver and Ziricote with Black and Gold (pictured).
