German Physiks Unicorn Mk II loudspeakers

Unicorn Mk II l is the only German Physiks loudspeaker to use just one driver: a single DDD driver covering the range from 40Hz to 24kHz. This design is so popular with horn loudspeaker fans in the Far East. The range from about 200Hz to 24,000kHz is radiated directly from the DDD driver, while energy below around 200Hz is coupled to a horn system and radiated from the opening in the bottom of the cabinet.

Whilst possibly not a beauty in the classical sense, the Unicorn’s sound is something else. With just one driver, the Unicorn Mk II demonstrates exceptional clarity and coherence and impressively well integrated and fast bass. It can also do a surprisingly convincing job with rock classics like Edgar Winter’s Frankenstein.
