Center Drivers Options
Like with the Trio15, also Quintet15 configuration is defined by its Center Driver.
The two most popular configurations are: Quintet15 w/ Horn1 and Quintet15 w/ Voxativ AC-1.6 center drivers.
Both offer all the scale and realism of a true wall of sound Open Baffle Speaker. Soundstage is not only wide but also high with unprecedented feel of sonic mass and presence.
The new Coax10″ center driver features a custom made mid-range driver and a horn tweeter, carefully voiced with top audiophile grade crossover. The Quintet15 with Coax10″ is an open baffle take on a three way system, pushing the sonic performances to an edge but without losing the organic and emotionally involving music experience.

- Quintet15 Horn1, with PureAudioProject PAP-Horn1 driver.
- Quintet15 Voxativ, with Voxativ AC-1.6, AC-PiFe or AC-X Field Coil drivers.

Horn1 Center Driver
Horn1, is a wide range (550hz and up) horn driver designed specifically for our Trio15 and Quintet15. It features a 1.4″ compression driver with a strong Neodymium motor and soft Polymer dome. Horn1 presents a smooth and pleasant sonic signature, with superb clarity and resolution, and no typical ‘horn harshness’ whatsoever.
With numerous customers feedbacks, the Quintet15 w/ Horn1 was also described by Herb Reichert from Stereophile as an Open Baffle Speaker that was ‘made right’. “To my ears, done-right describes the Pure Audio Project’s Quintet15 Horn1 Modular Open Baffle Loudspeakers ($9995) I auditioned at CAF… Coherent, full, large, relaxed, open, and naturally detailed, with no hi-fi unnaturalness.”;
Jeremy Kipnis from Enjoy the Music granted the Quintet15 Horn1 the Blue Note, Best of 2018 Award. Here is his closing statement of the review: “The Quintet15 Horn1 takes its place among a cherished handful of great examples of speakers that are true music instruments”.
Voxativ Center Drivers
The Voxativ AC-1.6 full range driver is just a natural match to operate in Quintet15. It plays with superb realism, a beautiful presence, and sonic finesse that Voxativ drivers are so popular for. Clarity and resolution is all there in a very natural sounding, smooth and pleasant way. Quintet15 with Voxativ AC-1.6 is a unique example for a balance between true high-end sonic performances and real-life emotionally moving music experience.
We also offer the Voxativ AC-PiFe driver, with a wood cone that presents even more presence and refinement, as well as the magical Field Coil AC-X driver, a driver that sets a league of its own.
