Overview

The ARYA is a floor standing 2.5-way speaker kit. Arya means “wise man” and we believe Arya is the wise choice if you want an elegant high performance floor standing speaker.

Each speaker uses too 6” SB17MFC mineral filled poly cone woofers for a tight satisfying bass and clean crisp mids. The SB Acoustics mineral filled poly cones are of a special composition and we are confident poly cones have never sounded better.

With 2 x 6” woofers per side there is enough quality bass for room sizes of 50m2/500f2 or more. The tweeter is the very renowned and patented Ring Dome. The large 29mm dome with center termination and wide ultra linear suspension results in a very low distortion and a presentation that can be described as very “silent/black” background.
