Visaton ARIA DIY Components Pack
The ARIA is equally well suited as a satellite in a straightforward stereo system or for use in a multi-channel set-up. It can be combined with larger speakers such as the VOX 200 where it takes over the center or effect role or a full set of them can be used to cover all channels. The lower limiting frequency is at 75 Hz, i.e. deep-bass should be left to an active subwoofer and the satellites will need protecting with a high-pass section or, in multi-channel systems, they should be run in small mode.
If the speakers are positioned right by the wall or in a shelving unit, the bass reflex tube will be partly damped or completely stifled, which can compensate for excessively boosted bass.
Extract from Klang & Ton
"... The smaller version of the ARIA, fitted with only a single cone driver, made a lively, dynamic impression but was also well able, like the larger version, to differentiate finer detail, which was more than we expected. Both of them retained crisp reproduction quality and never left one with the impression that the music was a two-dimensional screen, a particularly important feature when voices are up-front. One should not, however, expect what is commonly referred to as deep bass. But coupled with an active subwoofer, these two systems produced such high quality sound that they can easily compete with high-end products costing several times this price.These two new VISATON constructions are really hot business if what you're after is high-quality, build-it-yourself compact loudspeakers. The fact that the series includes a dipole variant makes these two the foundation stones of a top-grade surround system."
