PUNCHY.
ACCURATE.
LIGHTNING FAST.
ENDLESSLY CAPTIVATING.

The third generation of a Wilson Benesch classic. The original ‘Discovery’ name was a reference to the development of the unique acoustic presentation that the first Discovery loudspeaker delivered when it was launched in 2002. A 2.5-way standmount monitor like no other, the Discovery 3Zero deploys the same unique drive topology as the original classic, placing the Fibonacci Tweeter and a dedicated Tactic 3.0 midrange drive unit in close proximity to the powerful Isobaric Drive System that sits directly on the underside of the loudspeaker in the vertical plane. With all drive technologies placed within a few inches of one another, time alignment and integration across the Discovery 3Zero frequency band is unmatched. The Discovery 3Zero delivers a lightning-fast, punchy, highly accurate and endlessly captivating presentation.

DESIGN

TACTIC 3.0 DRIVE UNIT

The structure at the centre of the diaphragm plays a critical role in the behaviour of the drive unit. Commonly referred to as the “dust cap”, the name understates the importance of this component. In the Tactic 3.0, Wilson Benesch added the Fibonacci Element.

Produced in house using additive manufacturing technology, the Fibonacci Element can be printed according to pre-designed parameters. Such is the precision of the additive manufacturing software, that the Wilson Benesch design team can see in cross-section and design three-dimensionally the optimal layup of carbon fibre and nylon, defining both stiffness and weight across the structure. The result is a new geometrical form that is comprised of a double curvature with both open and closed aspects in the form of a lattice structure again borrowed from natural geometry. 5 different materials and adhesives provide significant improvements in both the accuracy of the frequency response and the reduction of distortion.

This is a critical aspect of the relationship between the drive unit and its ability to integrate with the roll off of the tweeter and bass drive units. In the past, several materials have been drawn upon to enable the fine-tuning of this marriage. Additive Manufacturing has opened up a new chapter in the pursuit of this subtle but extremely important aspect of loudspeaker design. For the first time, the principal aspects of this structure can all be adjusted in a way that was previously impossible.

FIBONACCI SILK-CARBON HYRBRIDISED TWEETER

The latest iteration of Wilson Benesch tweeter technology builds upon the Semisphere tweeter design pushing it into the next generation. As with all Wilson Benesch designs, the advances of the previous generation are built upon an iterative research and development pathway. With the Fibonacci tweeter, advances have been made within the structures adjacent to the motor and the hybridised dome. The Fibonacci tweeter faceplate is formed from a carbon fibre - nylon composite structure creating a geometrically optimised structure - the Fibonacci Element - that has been inspired by sacred geometry found in nature. In terms of acoustic performance, the faceplate delivers a new benchmark in terms of flat frequency response and ultrawide dispersion. In addition, the Fibonacci Element is decoupled from the motor and tweeter chassis which almost entirely eliminates structural borne resonance within this critical structure that surrounds the tweeter dome.

SSUCHY BIOCOMPOSITE MONOCOQUE

The Fibonacci Series introduces a full line of loudspeakers from the Wilson Benesch brand that are built from the new A.C.T. 3Zero biocomposite Monocoque. The new monocoque marks significant advances not only in terms of the acoustic performance of the Wilson Benesch reference line, but it also represents a deliberate and conscious move toward natural, renewable and sustainable materials technology.

ISOBARIC DRIVE SYSTEM

The principal low-frequency load of all loudspeakers in the Fibonacci Series is delivered by the Isobaric Drive System. Here two Tactic 3.0 Drive Units combine to create an Isobaric Drive System. The Isotactic Drive System is responsible for reproducing an incredibly tight and controlled bass response that is perfectly integrated with all other woofers in the loudspeaker chassis, particularly the midrange Tactic 3.0 drive unit.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM

in the ability to convey
music's dynamic expression...
the eminence is simply
unequalled.
“In the ability to convey music’s dynamic expression, rhythmic flow, and timing, the Eminence is simply unequaled. These are important, and often overlooked, qualities of musical realism.

Hearing music’s transient nature reproduced accurately is startling, and drives home the fact that all other dynamic loudspeakers act like a dynamic filter between you and the music.

Moreover, the way the Eminence resolves pitch, texture, and transient information in the bottom end is nothing short of revelatory.”

- Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound, Issue #294
