Alta Audio’s Rhea is unimposing in physical size, but presents a large and wide image with extraordinary bass. An audition will make you wonder how it can recreate the space and specificity of the concert hall while packing the wallop and power of live instruments. Created using the same XTL transmission line bass and DampHard cabinet construction on the faceplate as Alta Audio's highly reviewed Celesta FRM-2 speakers, it does so at a far more attainable price and is housed in a beautiful cabinet. The black seven inch midrange/woofer blends smoothly and seamlessly into the five inch pure ribbon tweeter, creating a sweet sound that can move you physically, while presenting intimate details of three dimensional images from the front to the deepest parts of the concert hall.
Elegant Ribbon Tweeter
A 3rd generation ribbon tweeter with excellent clarity and dynamics powers the exceptional upper register of the Rhea.
The Rhea’s state of the art midrange/woofer driver is designed for enhanced clarity and dimensionality.
Clearer, Faster, More Powerful Bass
All Alta Audio's cabinets are specially designed with their proprietary sonic geometry, making the cabinets themselves musical instruments that boost the bass of the speakers while delivering unparalleled clarity and speed.
Hear the Music, Not the Speaker
Alta Audio's proprietary multi-layer, multi-density cabinet material dampens resonance at all frequencies. With a cabinet dead of resonance the speaker fades into the music creating clear, open, and dimensional sound reproduction.
