The new drivers combine the benefits both physically and tonally from the two motor types and deliver a broad frequency response.
Whitinsville, MA (March 3, 2021) -- Bergantino Audio Systems are proud to announce the brand new NXV Series (NEO-X-Treme Vintage) product line to their world-renowned catalog of bass amplification products.
For almost two decades, Neodymium and Ceramic magnet-based speaker technologies have essentially been the only offerings to bass players. Both technologies have their benefits. On one hand, the properties of Neodymium-based drivers mean that there is a significant weight savings, especially in multi-speaker designs, while on the other, many professional users have found that they much prefer the tone of traditional Ceramic magnet drivers.
Combining the Elements
In 2018, a meeting at Bergantino’s Whitinsville factory facility with Celestion, the manufacturer of many of the most renowned and sought-after MI speakers in the world, cemented a relationship to develop an all-new notary and leading edge, Neodymium-based motor technology. The exclusive Neo X-Treme Technology drivers that were a result of this collaboration are unique to Bergantino and are a one-of-a- kind in the industry.
These new drivers combine the benefits both physically and tonally from the two motor types and deliver a broad frequency response that mates perfectly with bass guitar signals. Aligned with Bergantino's celebrated Reference Tweeter, it led to the 2020 worldwide release of the award-winning NXT series of speaker cabinets.
Fast forward to this year, Bergantino's brand new NXV series is based on the same innovative Neo X-Treme Technology drivers, but lends itself to a more vintage vibe both in looks and sonic delivery, perfect for those players who don’t need or wish for that percussive top-end sparkle that the NXT range offers.
The vintage voicing of the NXV range means that no tweeter was needed to be implemented in the design, as NXV's driver’s high frequency response extends high enough to please those players who want a solid and classic bass tone. Ideal for blues, soul, rock, metal and many other styles of music, the premium components in the NXV series will bring your sound to life, sit you in the mix with the punch and quality tone you crave, yet give you the flexibility to cut through when it is your time to shine.
The NXV's aesthetics also bring a modern twist to a vintage look - a first for Bergantino with the inclusion of tasteful, hard-wearing grill cloth with chromed metal cabinet corners complete the eye-catching appearance. Additionally, the front-facing tuned ports of the NXV’s offer high performance and extended low frequency support in a very manageable size and lightweight package.
By combining poplar and birch plywood construction in precision-tuned, ported cabinetry of exemplary build quality, these rigid cabinets will not only sound great and stand the test of time, they also will offer significant weight savings over vintage offerings of yesteryear.
Both the looks and tone of the new NXV cabinets evoke feelings that harken back to a time of raw, exciting music energy and warmth in bass tone but deliver it with the latest in high performance driver technology. That means players will spend less time struggling with troublesome sound and more time creating great music.
