Stiff Breeze

StiffBreezeFinal

First came the Breeze – a monitor that set a new benchmark for performance at it’s price.  The next step was obvious, take the foundation of the Breeze and give the listener more!

The Stiff Breeze definitely gives the listener more.  The 2nd woofer and larger cabinet result in increased sensitivity, increased power handling, more dynamics, improved midrange resolution and transparency, and a larger and more powerful presentation. Now in Revision 2, the Stiff Breeze offers a larger Transmission Line cabinet. This evolution of the design results in added low frequency impact and extension, but even more noticeable are the benefits in midrange articulation and reduced congestion at higher volumes.

Like the Breeze, the Stiff Breeze employs time alignment between drivers.  Combined with the extended bandwidth woofers and tweeter, everything simply snaps into place in an ideal way.  The crossover is only 4 total components, yet still retains a balanced frequency response that deviates from flat by only +/- 2db.

The Breeze is offered in 2 standard finishes:  matte finish maple, and piano gloss black.
As with all of our speakers we do offer custom veneering upon request and at extra charge.

Stiff Breeze pricing starts at $2495/pair

Stiff Breeze Center Channel pricing starts at $1395/each
