CARLA Reference II

Flagship CARLA Reference II sets the ultimate benchmark for loudspeakers

The core of our flagship CARLA Reference II is an award winning bending wave driver that is based on patented bending wave technology by Ondacustica. This bending wave transducer reproduces music the same way musical instruments create it, and is the result of extensive development and R&D efforts to reproduce the most natural sound possible.

The CARLA Reference II is additionally equipped with custom built 8 and 10 inches bass drivers, geometrically arranged for optimal directivity control. These drivers are impulse compensated to create an absolute smooth transition between the bending wave driver`s broad frequency range and the lower end.

The Italian minimalistic design and pure forms, along with the use of specific materials and our special tone woods, eliminate any unwanted resonances and negative energy stores.
