davvero ottimi , dal rapporto qualità prezzo impressionante , made in
Svezia , 2,5 vie , finitura incredibile , tweeter a nastro e sopratutto
configurabili , possimo usarli reflex oppure sospensione pneumatica , poi
possiamo regolare i vari livelli ed equalizzazioni in base alla stanza.

99.36 MKII is a floor speaker in the 99-series, equipped with SEAS Excel
High End drivers, providing an absolutely clean and transparent sound. 60
years of experience supports this driver.
99.36 MKII also features a ribbon tweeter to ensure a superior transient
response and very flat frequency response. The new MKII crossover filter
offers even flatter frequency response, improved phase linearity and
the 99.36, we carefully selected the components. The goal was to offer a
speaker without compromising, and with a finish normally not found in this
SEAS Excel element
Ribbon tweeter with extreme performance
Selectable bass reflex or sealed construction
Adjustable bass level in two steps
Adjustable tweeter level in four steps
Connection terminal for tri-amping
When the XTZ 99.36 MKII was constructed the resulting quality of
the loudspeaker had a greater importance than the cost. Still we claim
that with the right skills and production volume, it is possible to obtain
true High End quality without ending up with a price so high that only a
few people can afford it.
Use extreme performance drivers
High End reproduction
Components at the highest possible mechanical quality
Relatively small cabinet
Timeless and clean design
Very flexible with lots of adjustment options
The 99.36 MKII is a three way construction with internal
cabinet is built using a narrow front - not only an aestetically neat
shape, but also an advantage from an acoustic point of view as it provides
a stable construction to keep resonances to a minimum.
midrange and woofers use separate chambers. This way, we have been able to
optimize the chamber volumes for the midrange and bass drivers. Also, the
midrange driver can operate without any interference from the woofer.
new design with its elliptical cabinet shape offer a natural stability.
It´s further reinforced with internal bars to effectively suppress
resonances and provide a robust construction.
We selected a ribbon tweeter with superior transient response and
a very flat frequency response. Ribbon tweeters are frequently used in
high end speakers.
The ribbon cone is super light and only 18 microns thin. It is a
rosin-aluminium-rosin sandwich construction that has been hardened at 320
The magnet system is a two row highly efficient neodynium construction in
a moulded chassis of ceramical carbon steel.
Fishbone shaped contactors in aluminium provide a low connection
resistance and good heat dissipation.
The driver has a high power capacity and handles frequencies up to 40000
Hz which makes it DVD-Audio and SACD-ready.
After evaluating a large number of drivers from different manufacturers we
selected one from Seas, a company that has a solid reputation in the area
of high quality speaker drivers. You can find Seas drivers in many High
End speakers, even with 6 figure price tags. With 60 years of experience,
they have cutting edge knowledge that puts most of the competition behind.
the woofer/midrange we decided on a 6,5" magnesium driver from the Seas
Excel series that have extreme performance. We claim that finding a better
6,5" driver on the market is a very difficult task.
The surface treated magnesium cone is extremely light but still extremely
stiff and effectively reduces resonances.
The rubber surrounding makes sure that no edge resonances are present.
The moulded metal basket is a "high flow" type that is acoustically
transparent and has high precision since the basket is shaped exactly due
to the moulding process. This makes sure that the basket is very stable
and efficiently reduces resonances. The basket is absolutely non-magnetic,
which contributes to a higher efficiency of the driver.
A strong magnet combined with the light cone ensures high efficiency and a
good transient response.
Heavy copper rings mounted above and below the T-shaped pole piece reduce
non linear and modulation distortion and increase the overload margin.
The copper plating of the top and bottom plates along with a solid copper
phase plug improves the heat conduction and thus contributes to the high
Goldplated terminals reduce contact resistance and serve as anti-corrosion.
Large windows in the basket both above and below the spider reduces sound
reflections, air flow noise and cavity resonances.
The bass driver is also a Seas unit, but a classic coated paper type, well
known for its performance at a very good price/performance ratio. The
coated paper membrane is very light, yet rigid with a minimum of
resonances and a controlled roll off.
rubber suspension ensures that edge resonances are suppressed. The cast
basket is a high flow type with very good precision. The construction is
very stable and completely non magnetic to obtain high effiency. A
powerful magnet paired with the light cone provides good transient
The crossover is a 2 1/2 way Linkwitz/Riley type, with 12 dB/oct slope for
the midrange and tweeter. This offers a minimum of phase shiftings and
good transient response. For the woofer, we opted for a 24 dB/oct section.
The filter uses MOX resistors, air wound coils and high quality capacitors.
are tuning options included to enable you to adjust the tweeter/bass level
to match your listening room and preferences.
The tri-wiring connectors are goldplated and you can connect to the
amplifier with double cables (bi-wiring), or connect to two amplifiers (bi-amping)
for further improving the sound. This would need active filters.
By using the supplied bass reflex plugs, it is possible to mechanically
alter the lower boundary frequency on XTZ 99.36 MKII.
This makes it possible to drastically alter the sound character of the
speaker. You can choose from eight different sound shapes in the bass
range by using the bass plugs.
With the plugs inserted the speaker operates as a sealed construction.
