What is Alpha 5.1
The VIBE Alpha 5.1 is a compact and affordable speaker package with fantastic sound quality, whilst avoiding the mistakes made by many other products on the market. The Alpha design is small enough to be discreet but big enough to perform the full sound stage demanded by modern day movies especially when mastered to DVD, and more so Blu ray. The design is elegant, timeless and sophisticated, the system can be worn with grills or without, not afraid to show off its speaker make up and technology.Most compact surround sound systems use small drivers ranging from 3” to 1” and in many cases have no tweeters; all hidden behind fixed grills. These types of speakers are limited in high frequency and low frequency sounds. Having no tweeter means massive limitation, compromising music and films by missing out the high detail. Equally using 3” midrange speakers will result in limited bass reproduction this in turn will leave a huge gap between the subwoofer and the speaker.
So many 5.1 systems on the market produce hiss and boom with little to no midrange detail. The VIBE Alpha speakers use a more substantial 4” speaker, straight away you will notice bass presence from the 5 speakers. Most importantly this 4” speaker is fast, concentrating on the upper mid bass sounds giving us sharp tight snap whilst the deep bass and slam is left to the subwoofer. A concentric tweeter and woofer design allows all the sound to originate from a single point in total alignment for a balanced sound with absolute clarity and coherence.VIBE stands for Vented Innovative Bass Enclosures and we has 18 years devoted to subwoofer and enclosure design. The Alpha 10” subwoofer delivers powerful low frequencies with absolute fidelity ,perfect for giving your living room the intense cinematic atmosphere that makes you feel like you are in the movie.
The Alpha subwoofer includes an integrated active amplifier with bass level and frequency level control , allowing you to fine tune the subwoofer to perfectly match your system and change the characteristics of the bass output.The Alpha system is expertly engineered to VIBE high standards its subtle design is discrete enough tobe hidden away with ease whilst the attention to detail make up for an elegant display. Extremely versatile the Alpha system can be used in 2.1, 5.1, 7.1 configurations for any size Home Cinema or HiFi setup.Just add an A/V receiver or Amplifier of you’re choice and you’re on your way!
