Product Information

The Super Tower/R is a larger version of the Tower II, offering even more deep bass and power-handling capability. The larger array of midrange and high-frequency drivers expands the apparent image and soundstage. A pair costs $2,058 assembled, with the ribbon tweeter and high-performance dome tweeter, and uses a 15-inch mass- and slot-loaded passive radiator firing down toward the base of the cabinet. It uses a 15-inch low-bass driver, a 12-inch mid-bass driver, two 5-inch cones, two 1-inch soft dome tweeters, a ribbon supertweeter, and a top-firing tweeter. Its cabinet is 49 x 17 x 21 1/2 inches and weighs 166 pounds.

VMPS specifies that the Super Tower/R has a-3 dB point of 20 Hz and a bandwidth up to 40 kHz, with harmonic distortion of less than 0.5% at 1 watt from 22 Hz to 40 kHz in a free-field or anechoic environment. The speaker is relatively efficient, producing 96 dB SPL at 1 meter for 1 watt, and it can take power up to 350 watts. Once again, a quasi-second-order filter is used to preserve good phase response, and the drivers are compensated for time delay.

In both models, the low-frequency and midrange speakers use polypropylene cones. The cabinets are very heavy and are solidly reinforced and damped. Mirror-imaged, the drivers are placed to produce an apparent point source. Both models provide a full range of treble and midrange adjustments, which, for once, seemed to produce best performance at the nominal flat setting. The bass can be tuned to produce the best response for a given room and system by mass-loading the passive radiator to trim its O. Experimentation in this area is absolutely essential. A Tower that has been carelessly set up, without the proper loading, will either lose deep bass power or will sound far too boomy. The overall construction is very good, although there are some obvious hand built touches. Good-quality components are used throughout the crossovers.
