Sneak peak into Bentley Acoustics 200 series
« on: October 22, 2018, 10:52:15 PM »
Hi Guys!

Here is a sneak peak of a few photos I snapped of the FS250 speakers!
A few small details which still need to be added.

As you will see there are no grille holes, all magnetic.
4-way 180watt 6ohm
Detailed specs to follow later.

We have connected my set of Sonus Faber Olympica 3's *$13500 - 202k) speakers as a comparison, and I tell you what, blindfolded the Bentleys might just sound better , and at 6th of the price!
Bi-wired for those who like that sort of thing.
Piano gloss black as the standard colour but any colour can be ordered on request.

Logo still needs to be added, waiting for the mold makers to finish.

Anyway enough talk, what do you guys think of this Proudly South African product?

Shine bright like diamond  :groovy:
Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

Very nice  :dop:

If you say they sound better than the Olympica III then I have to hear a pair soon.

What are the main differences from the 100 series? I see the drivers are different, are they from the same manufacturer that the 100 series use?

Any specs?

Hi, everything about the 200 series is different. From cabinet design, drivers and xo.
Will post detailed specs later.

I like the monolithic look! The gloss paint does fight with that of the drivers, it seems (from photos; may be different in the flesh). Congratulations on the completion of your new range.

Very impressive work by all involved (Rudi playing a big role)! Might just be the 'giant slayer' most of us can afford!

Good luck with marketing,sales,and the dream...  :2thumbs:
