Lockheart Lounge Speakers

NOTE: I am planning a full-blown video review of my new Tekton – Double Impact SE speakers. But I’ll be honest… I’m not an audiophile, and I’ll never be able to surpass the information/quality of the two videos embedded below. If you are in the market for such amazing speakers, those videos (and the Tekton website) provide the best information I’ve seen.

With thanks and credit to KingKummm, Lockheart Lounge visitors will be able to enjoy two massive, and *very* red speakers.

They were made by Tekton Design in Orem, Utah.

I suppose the thing that makes them extra-special is their unique tweeter cluster. As I understand it, only the center-most tweeter handles the highest frequencies, while the six surrounding tweeters manage most of the mid-range frequencies.

This arrangement provides *very* accurate and life-like mid frequencies – (like vocals).

As I said, I will be doing a more in-depth review, but until then here are some noteworthy specs:

  • Color: (obviously most important spec first) – I finally chose “Flirt Alert” by Behr. — I chose this color because it most closely matched the red color on AC/DCs album The Razor’s Edge. My other top contender was the biggest, baddest, brightest, bubblegum pink you can imagine. I *LOVE* the red, but sometimes regret not getting pink. LOL.
  • Color Options: Go to Home Depot or Lowes and pick any color you want.
  • Price: They were a gift, so I’m not 100% sure. But the prices are on the Tekton site, and as I understand it, they include shipping in the USA.
  • Dimensions: Height 54″(137.16cm) x Width 12″(30.48cm) x Depth 18.75″(45.725cm)
  • Weight: 125 lbs each.
  • Power Handling: I have a Yamaha RX-V681 — which is rated at 125W (I think) — and the speakers play effortlessly. Loud. Clear.
  • Sound: To my non-audiophile ears, nothing short of amazing. I hear deeper into the music than I ever have before. And these speakers have breathed new life into songs I’ve hears a hundred++ times.
  • Sub: The Double Impact is a full range loudspeaker (down to 20Hz). But I still need a subwoofer to get the full impact of some bass-heavy songs. In a perfect world I could get a dual sub setup — so the subs can act as stands for the Double Impacts. Based on the size, power, and dimensions, I believe 2 SVS PB-1000 Subwoofers would be a perfect match.

Check this space again soon for my full video review. Until then, these videos should tell you everything else you want to know.
