Carbon Fibre cone at the end of a phenomenally powerful
push-pull motor. Unlike a common subwoofer that relies upon a
high hysteresis suspension to reset the cone to zero, the cone
position in the Torus is dictated at all times by electromagnetism. The result is low frequency sound with absolute precision and integration across the frequency range.
At the heart of the Torus is the core, a formidable 35.2 pound
precision machined steel column, with the two large rare earth
magnets of the push-pull motor either side. The core is the
reference point for every other component in the design, acting
both to focus structural borne resonance directly to earth with
zero reference to the outer enclosure and also a high capacity
In the Torus, where huge amounts of low frequency energy are
generated, thermal efficiency is a critical concern. In addition to
the steel core, Wilson Benesch developed a Boron Nitride coil in
collaboration with Oxford University. Boron Nitride offers the high electrical conductivity required by any coil design, but its thermal conductivity supersedes that of copper by several orders of
The elegant and minimal toroidal shape of the Torus is a
testament to the use of purist geometry in every component.
Whether it be often earth shattering low frequencies in a home
cinema, or the attack and dynamics of a drum solo, the Torus
never misses a beat or fails to deliver the physical impact that we know and love of low frequency sound.
instruments. The picked melody is more fluid, quicker and more
sinuous, the snare more snappy and insistent, the space around
the instruments much more apparent, with walls and a floor.
Suddenly the music takes on a feeling of underlying urgency that dovetails perfectly with the lyrics”
