A.C.T. – ‘Advanced Composite Technology’ refers to the composite technologies upon which the Wilson Benesch brand was founded and has subsequently become synonymous. The A.C.T. acronym was used in 1991 for the company’s first loudspeaker, the A.C.T. One, which set several benchmarks, including being the world’s first carbon fibre composite loudspeaker ever produced.
A.C.T. technology has been used through four successive designs, arriving today at the A.C.T. 3Zero the sixth generation A.C.T. loudspeaker. The A.C.T. 3zero, therefore, follows a long line of speakers, embodying the heritage of the Wilson Benesch brand and the classic A.C.T. design.
Similar physical proportions have been retained, however, the A.C.T. 3Zero marks a significant departure from the use of carbon fibre composite materials in the monocoque that forms the loudspeaker enclosure, moving into the next generation of biocomposite materials technology. The new biocomposite A.C.T. 3Zero Monocoque is made from naturally sourced, renewable and sustainable materials and is superior in performance, being better damped and more silent than the previous generation enclosure.
The new A.C.T. 3Zero also marks the first occasion in history that an A.C.T. loudspeaker is installed with an Isobaric Drive System. The new A.C.T. 3Zero incorporates the IDS within the elegant, exquisitely engineered foot. Combined with the new Tactic 3.0 and the Fibonacci Tweeter, the A.C.T. 3zero delivers a new level of sonic performance from the A.C.T. marquee, setting the benchmark for the industry in this sector.
