In a world where space is increasingly at a premium and the task of accommodating large loudspeakers is undeniably challenging, the Vivid Audio team have been busy preserving the qualities of the original Giya G1 in increasingly diminutive enclosures. The G4 packs all of the unique features of the Giya principles into an enclosure just 1m in height.
This was made possible through the design of two new drivers, the C100S for the low mid-range, which retains the focused field radial magnet of its larger predecessor, and the C125L long throw bass driver which uses the extended gap design used in the rest of the Giya range complemented by a novel ’maximum diameter surround’ to give the greatest mechanical throw for the given diameter of cone and chassis.
Exceptional purity through the mid and high frequencies is assured by the combination of the D50 and D26 aluminium magnesium alloy and carbon fibre dome drivers. With their patented catenary domes these two units deliver a high frequency performance to well beyond the range of human hearing. Exponential tapered tube loading behind every driver, including the bass, assures a crisp resonance-free delivery of the whole audio band.
Every Vivid Audio loudspeaker cabinet is hand finished using an elaborate process to ensure the very best aesthetics and finish quality. Available in Standard Finishes, Piano or Pearl. Also, Optional Finishes, Sahara, Arctic Silver, Oyster, and Borollo. (Additional costs apply.)
