Response D48 is the top-end of the ProAc Response series of passive Hi-Fi loudspeakers. Available with either a dome tweeter (D48D) or ribbon tweeter (D48R), the model spent a year in research & development before ProAc considered it good enough for production.

D48 is considered one of the finest designs from ProAc, and should please all audiophiles regardless of their taste in music.



Response D48 (D/R)

D48 features a special impregnated cone, with mid-frequencies tuned by a cap of greater size than standard. This gives the new unit far greater mid-range detail, along with excellent bass control, together giving a tighter and more extended response.

A cleaner, faster and more extended bass response is also present, due to a new studio monitor quality bass driver, designed specifically for the D48.

These two new bass drivers are each loaded through special floor loading with side vents, making the loudspeaker easier to sight and less reactive to surroundings. The two bass units seamlessly mate to either the ribbon or dome tweeter, depending on customer preference.

The D48 has a high quality filter network designed by Stewart Tyler comprising of the finest components, ProAc cable on a special board. The filter is also split for bi-amping and bi-wiring.

With such a large, slim floor-standing design the soundstage is superb, very large and with pinpoint imagery. Add this to the D48s ability to recreate large orchestral works just as well as heavy rock music, and you’ll hear exactly why ProAc consider this model one of their finest achievements.
