Review: Lowther Medallion II Speaker


Category: Speakers

In all of audio, here is a very unique full range, single driver, horn loaded speaker. It's dynamic beyond anything you've ever heard, including electrostatics. The combination of a SET amp/paper cone/alnico magnet and horn is amazing. Forget imaging/soundstaging and the like - just sit back and enjoy these extremely musical speakers. They make you want to dance - isn't that what it's about?! Bottom line is that if you want to feel the emotional impact of music, and want it to be extremely involving, you need look no further than Lowther speakers with a good SET amp.

Patsaud, great description. You may know that I also am breaking-in a Lowther system. I love the sound. I'm glad to know another kindred spirit out there in audioland. I have about 40-50 hours on mine and they are really doing fine. I have heard that it takes about 500 hours to get them almost fully broken-in. I am using a Voigt pipe enclosure. I'd love to hear your Medallions. Enjoy!
Patsaud and Twl, which Lowther speaker are you using?
I have Lowthers also, housed in Beauhorn's cabinets. Try the Bybee filter attached directly at the driver binding post, you will be amazed!
I am using the PM2A, a classic choice for the Medallion II Cabinets, although there is some debate about the size of the compression chamber when using this driver and it's very large alnico magnet.
First heard the Lowther Hegmans(fires straight up 6" driver. Aside from ESLs they are the best speaker I have ever heard.

Patsaud et al,

I too own a pair of Ed's Horns. How would you compare them to the Lowther Medallion II? Thanks!
how about the bass extension?
thanks
