Gryphon Audio Pendragon Loudspeaker System (Demo)

Category Tag

The Gryphon Pendragon is a four column speaker system with a woofer tower consisting of eight 8″ drivers in a heroically heavy cabinet, and a separate midrange/tweeter panel consisting of a two meter tall, full-range ribbon used as a midrange driver and four air motion tweeters operating from 18 kHz to 40 kHz. Flemming says the tweeters provide frequency extension, openness and “air.” The cone drivers in the woofer tower are custom made for Gryphon to Flemming’s specifications and are powered by a Gryphon Class AB 1,000 watt continuous/4,000 watt peak amplifier designed specifically for this purpose.
