Performance and musicality

THE BLACK SWAN ACTIVE EXT is a speaker system that sets new standards in the world of home theaters and commercial cinemas. Ultimate sound pressure and finest detail resolution, paired with an outstanding musicality are not opposites anymore, they melt in the THE BLACK SWAN to a perfect combination.

Equipped with a point source asymmetrical horn system, exclusively designed and custom-made to reach a low crossover point and perfect mid to high frequency reproduction. This time-coherent linear phase, high-performance point-source, combines with an ultra-fast and highest sensitivity 15-inch mid-woofer to an extremely impressive and extraordinary performing musical speaker system, that leaves nothing to be desired. Reference levels even at huge commercial theaters are one trait of this unmatched speaker system.

It’s absolutely fascinating how the BLACK SWAN system breathes finest, extremely quiet, almost only hinted notes into the cinema in such a soft yet differentiated and airy way to instantly throw thunderstorm salvos in the next moment into the listening room accompanied by explosively upsurging volume peaks at frightening life like volume levels. 

132 dB SPL Peak – this is a promise!

THE BLACK SWAN ACTIVE EXT – audiophile sound, dynamics and compact design in perfection.
