The behold tanara, a totally different world.

The concept of this speaker deviates predecessors atacama and tatanka significantly. The goal of that approach is to put a cost effective speaker aside the behold Gentle G192. Without the tanara there would be no speaker available to show all it’s qualities in a perfect way.

The concept is a so called “partly active”. Partly because one part of the crossover has to be active and is handled by the Gentle G192 with it’s DSP-bases active crossover. The bi-amping power amplifiers feed bass-section and midrange/treble separately. The passive part of the crossover is placed it the speaker itself with it’s 12-pole filters. 6-poles as a low-pass separating high frequencies from the midrange and 6-poles as a high-pass to cut off the midrange from the tweeter. Such a high number of poles is totally unusual because of the resulting phase shift many speaker manufacturers are afraid of. There is no way to manage this with a passive approach. But for the Gentle G192 this is not a problem, the overall phase shift will be compensated. Some might state that the resulting phase shift will be more than 360°. As a fact the tanara filter has ca. 1750° phase shift up to 12kHz, but still this is an easy job for a Gentle G192. An absolute unique selling proposition of this combination.

The double-bass invented developing the behold tatanka works that good that it is used at the tanara too. The difference lies in the fact that two “only” 22cm drivers are used. However the bass outlet measures the same size of 100mm equal to the both others atacama and tatanka. To get a harmonic appearance with the midrange/treble section the funnel is shaped directly in the wood of the face front with a smaller radius of cause. The vibrations eliminated to a very minimum by the double-bass concept allow to integrate all sections within one housing. But this is true only looking from the outside. The inside looks different. There is a totally separate housing for the midrange/treble section, removable.
