ABOUT:

The 1+1 is the most unique small footprint loudspeaker in the world. Like all Audience ClairAudient speakers, it features the single wideband driver design that delivers a totally transparent sound due to the lack of a crossover. However, in this model a bi-pole configuration is used which expands the soundstage, extends low frequency and increases power handling. There are active full range drivers on the front and back which are complemented by passive radiators on each side. The jewel-like enclosure is a joy to look at and will fit into any room where space is at a premium and high quality sound is desired. Affordable and amazing, the 1+1 must be heard to be believed.

Right from the first introduction of this awesomely innovative design from Audience the 1+1 received lofty recognition from the prominent high end audio publications; The Absolute Sound, from the world debut at THE Show Newport in June 2012, and again from THE Show Las Vegas in Jan 2013 John Atkinson, editor of Stereophile Magazine states “The sound was dynamic with surprisingly extended low frequencies”.

As of August, 2018 the 1+1 loudspeaker is available in Version 3 (V3) which includes the best of the V2+ in addition to some great new technologies. The improvements of the V3 loudspeakers are very significant resulting from the implementation of improved voice coil technology. The V3 voice coil technology provides faster rise time and greater control of the driver. Additionally, the V3 loudspeaker internal wiring includes the metallurgic improvements represented in the new Audience flagship frontRow cables wiring. The end result of these improvements is not subtle. The V3 loudspeakers are notably better in just about every aspect. The resolution is greater and the background is quieter resulting in a dramatically more palpable and tonally rich presentation. Dynamics and sound staging are also improved. The combination of these new features is not just an upgrade ... it warrants a whole new model version. Previous versions of the 1+1 can be upgraded.

All versions of the Audience 1+1 are 6” by 8” by 9.5” works of art. They are little jewels through which unbelievably good sound enters your room. The build quality is also equally impressive.

John designed these speakers around Audience’s proprietary full-range 3-inch driver. It delivers an extremely flat frequency response from 50Hz to 22kHz. It also has the huge advantage of not needing a crossover network. This eliminates the inherent difficulties of integrating multiple sonically dissimilar drivers. It also eliminated the accompanying phase distortions and degradation of a crossover network.
