Tide Breeze has a 1.5” thick trapezoidal composite baffle which carries three drivers in dipole configuration: one 9.5” electrodynamic woofer and two planar ribbon drivers – a 10” midrange and a 3” tweeter.
Our innovative patent-pending topology presents a groundbreaking approach, ensuring a seamless shift from omnidirectional lower bass to upper bass with cardioid directivity. This unique combination of an omnidirectional sub and dipole woofer results in a cardioid pattern, providing a smooth transition into midrange and high frequencies with dipole directivity. Through extensive research and testing, we've confirmed that the cardioid directivity effectively tackles room modes in the mid-bass spectrum. The outcome is a refined in-room response and exceptionally accurate mid-bass fidelity.
Tide's design not only pushes the boundaries of dipole speakers based on thin film technology, whether planar or electrostatic, but also solves historical challenges faced by loudspeaker engineers. This includes overcoming limitations in frequency and dynamic range, mitigating irregular and beaming dispersion, and enhancing integration with the electrodynamic bass section.
