Proac Response D28 speakers
The highly acclaimed D25 model was a tough act to follow for Proac loudspeaker engineers, so when the challenge was laid down to improve this model, they took the best the D25 could offer, and then re-designed the other aspects of the design for even better loudspeaker performance.
The two most important components retained for the D28 were the 25mm air cooled silk dome tweeter and 165mm coated polypropylene custom made mid-bass driver which features a sturdy die-cast chassis. These drivers have already shown their huge acoustic talents, and they are operating right at the top of their game, so no revisions were required.
Where the engineers focused their attention was the in cabinet and crossover - these elements are as critical to overall sound quality as the drive units themselves, and it was felt that advances could be made by adapting the design further to create the Response D28.
As Proac owners already know, the cabinet quality of construction is second to none with all models, however the D28 has been given an extremely rigid and damped, non-resonant cabinet, free from vibration to allow the drive units to move air as they were designed, with no impediment in the form of colouration from their cabinet.
The slim faced D28 is now easy on the eye for all members of the family, whilst the six real wood veneers are furniture grade for lasting beauty and durability. A stabilising plinth ensures the loudspeaker remains firmly coupled to the floor, which is essential in achieving the best possible sound quality. At the base of the speaker is a dual sideways facing bass port which enables the D28 to deliver bass of substantial depth, with a taut and muscular quality that reminds the listener of the live musical event.
A re-design of the crossover network was necessary to ensure a wider dispersion of frequencies to enable better stereo sound staging, whilst gains in bass extension and midrange transparency were also aided by premium grade resistors, capacitors and inductors.
All of these design aspects amalgamate to produce the Proac Response D28 of today, a hugely entertaining and capable musical window on your recordings - if you love music heard as it was at the live event, then the D28's are a must-hear.
