In 2011, the debut of the Rockport Technologies AVIOR loudspeaker marked a new era of loudspeaker performance from Rockport Technologies as it was the first speaker to employ their custom, carbon fiber sandwich composite cone based midrange and woofer drive units. “The technology behind these drivers continues to be employed throughout the current Rockport loudspeaker range and offers what we believe to be the best stiffness to weight ratio of any loudspeaker driver on the market today.”

“The AVIOR’s 1” beryllium dome tweeter, 6” carbon fiber sandwich composite midrange and twin 9” carbon fiber sandwich composite woofers were mounted in a triple laminated, constrained mode damped enclosure that featured a solid 6” thick baffle, variable section thickness, curved side panels and a crowned top surface that ensured immense stiffness and minimum resonant signature. Weighing in at a substantial 220lbs each, but with a modest footprint that could be placed in most rooms, the AVIOR’s airy and expressive top end perfectly complemented its authoritative yet nimble lower registers, delivering an incredibly engaging and musical presentation lauded by music lovers throughout the world.”
