Square One

S T A N D   M O U N T E D   L O U D S P E A K E R

The gateway into the Wilson Benesch loudspeaker lines, the Square One distils the design philosophy of Wilson Benesch in a more affordable package. Make no mistake, the Square One is a highly optimised design with genuine high-end pedigree. Hand build, bespoke, British loudspeakers.

Square One

The Square One loudspeaker exists because of our belief that the design philosophy and technology developed for the companies reference lines, could be distilled in a beautiful, handcrafted loudspeaker based on a more traditional aesthetic and cabinet material choice.

 

The revolutionary Tactic mulitrole Drive Unit, delivers both the midrange and bass frequency in the Square One. This powerful, dynamic drive unit is complimented by a bespoke, Wilson Benesch spec, Scanspeak Tweeter. A minimal crossover design, which sees no crossover on the Tactic Drive Unit and a simple 1st-order tweeter crossover, allows for seamless integration across the frequency range to deliver the family Wilson Benesch sound from 45Hz to 24kHz.

 

The Square Series II sound is more than the sum of the drive unit technologies it boasts, internally Wilson Benesch has applied design philosophy developed for its reference loudspeaker lines ensuring that both series share a family sound and class leading signal-to-noise ratios.

 

Finished with a high gloss or matt veneer expertly handcrafted by Bentley Motors trained craftsmen and the low profile laser cut steel grill create the finishing touches to a remarkable, British built loudspeaker.

REVIEWS

"The Square Ones are a premium-priced product, to be sure. However, they have much of the same technology and the same build quality as Wilson Benesch’s more expensive models, and provide a smaller-scaled version of WB’s house sound: “extremely low distortion, seamless coherence, unfussy easefulness, rounded liquidity of tone, articulate dynamics, and seductively natural imaging and soundstaging.” The price tier of ca $5000/pair (including stands) is crowded and competitive, but the Square One is a standout performer that I think absolutely deserves a very high Class B (Restricted LF) rating in our “Recommended Components.” It very well may be over the line into Class A (Restricted Extreme LF) . . ."
