Originally, the B10 loudspeaker was intended solely as a near-field monitor for music recordings in Dieter Burmester’s private studio. Due to its enormous performance, the concept was finally adopted for a compact loudspeaker with flexible installation options and a small footprint. Burmester’s commitment and experience in the automotive sector at Porsche made it possible, in cooperation with one of the suppliers, to implement a development according to one’s own ideas. The result is an extremely precise bass-midrange driver with a resin-soaked fiberglass membrane that shows the best swing-in and swing-out behavior. This is complemented by a ring radiator for the high frequency range, which in turn found its way from the loudspeaker into the automotive sector.
The appearance of the compact loudspeaker is determined by the solid aluminum front, which not only enhances the appearance, but also specifies the radiation angle for the tweeter. The housing can be ordered in walnut or macassar veneer or in a white high-gloss finish.
The up to 48 mm thick baffle is connected to the solid aluminum front panel in the factory. With a sure instinct and a lot of expertise, the qualified loudspeaker designers apply a layer of felt between the two materials to prevent the vibrations generated by the loudspeaker chassis from being transmitted.
