ARA Be

The ARA-Be is a 2-way stand mount kit which takes the ARA performance to the highest level with the SATORI TW29BN Beryllium tweeter and revised crossover. The TW29BN has been independently announced by many as the best tweeter in the world.

ARA is the highest point of Komodo Island Indonesia and particularly notable as the habitat  of the spectacular and mythical Komodo dragons. The ARA kit is designed to deliver top level transparent and dynamic sound reproduction.

The ARA’s faceted baffle is specially designed to reduce high frequency diffraction and yields superb imaging qualities. A further 7⁰ reclined cabinet ensures time alignment resulting in sublime staging and pin point placement of instruments.

The cabinet is masterfully crafted from 18mm MDF with internal bracing to distribute cabinet vibrations and lower sound coloration. Unwanted reflections are minimized by wedge shaped inner rear walls. The ARA has a large rear firing port and high quality speaker terminals on a solid aluminum binding post plate.

For a larger speaker with similar design goals look to the RINJANI and RINJANI-Be which are the larger floor standing siblings of the ARA.
