Peerless Application Notes

To better understand the Peerless architecture, and how to put Peerless to use in your audio applications, read our application notes:

Discontinued Tymphany LAT Products

Subwoofer

Tymphany LAT 250

The patented LAT 250 is designed to provide strong bass performance in a new vibration-free, cylindrical form factor. The driver may be configured for use in sealed, vented, bandpass or open-baffle enclosures, and provides high bass output from a very compact transducer. In typical applications, mechanical vibration is more than 90% lower than comparable loudspeakers, even at full output. The LAT 250 employs dual voice coils, and impedance configurations from 2 Ohm to 16 Ohm are available per customer requirements. Paired with the Peerless Lifestyle driver, the Tymphany LAT, is an ideal solution for lifestyle consumer electronics products such as flat panel TVs and sound bars, MP3 and cell phone docking stations, multimedia PCs and other small devices. Note: The nominal impedance is calculated with both coils driven in parallel.

Tweeter

BC

The BC product line is known for its quality tweeters and midwoofers. Designed in Denmark by our experienced team of audio engineers, Peerless BC products can meet the most demanding needs for both volume and audio excellence. The BC product line has ferrofluid in the magnet gap for improved cooling of the driver.

OX

In this tweeter design, the audio engineers have reinvented the traditional dome tweeter yet again. Based on the knowledge obtained from work on the Vifa XT series, the R&D team has combined a traditional dome design with the large surround of the XT. This results in a tweeter that has a very good dispersion and low distortion due to the improved control of the diaphragm.

PL

XT/DX

The goal for this tweeter series was to create a transducer that has a frequency response that is flat to above 20K, and where the distortion is far lower than normal and more friendly to the ear. The tweeters represent a unique approach to tweeter design that has resulted in unrivaled performance, as well as in several patents (Dual Ring Radiator diaphragm , wave-guide center plug).

Full Range

TG/TC

The TG/TC series offers a high performance full range and mid-bass solution for TV products and other compact applications. Extensive development work by the Peerless audio engineering team, and the use of leading-edge technologies like polymer-chassis, NRSC (Tymphany patent) Glass Fibre or Paper Cone and CU-cap on pole piece, have made this full range driver appear on many industry insider lists as the best sounding solution in this market.

Mid Range

PL

The PL series is designed for the discerning audiophile customer. To meet the needs of this audience, several new technologies were developed with the goal of lowering distortion and damping in the speaker. The coated paper cone reduces vibration and standing waves, and the vented motor system minimizes power compression. The combined result is a very open and dynamic sound.

SC

The SC product line, manufactured in our world-class Panyu, China facility, is known for its quality tweeters and midwoofers. Designed in Denmark by our experienced team of audio engineers, Peerless SC products can meet the most demanding needs for both volume and audio excellence.

XT/DX

This series builds on the foundation of the PL series, but with new approaches to further enhance the performance. With a high density, low resonance, airflow-optimized chassis it allows maximum airflow under the spider. The result is much lower compression of air in the magnet system, which has also been optimized to reduce distortion. A Wood-fibre cone and phase integrated dust cap is a new technology that strives for the optimum sound quality. Vifa has always been known for searching for the best sound and will only adapt the best materials to achieve this. Low Resonance Multi-roll Surround (LRMS) is another design element used in this series to reduce resonance.

Woofer

Classic

The Classic line consists of all the highly regarded transducers that have been appraised and loved by so many customers over the years. The goal has been to assemble all the diamonds, developed over the years, speakers that fully live up to the heritage of the brand.

HDS Nomex

The High Definition Sound (HDS) NOMEX Series offers high-quality solutions for both multi-way speaker systems and vented box applications. Featuring “shorting rings” for low distortion and coils offering perfect linear compatibility with NOMEX cones, these audio transducers are characterized by their very open, very rich sound character.

HDS Nomex

HDS PPB

The new High Definition Sound (HDS) PPB series is the culmination of Peerless working in close partnership with end users of Peerless-based audio products. With a deep understanding of customer requirements and needs, Peerless developed the proprietary and highly advanced Polypropylene Black (PPB) cone material used in the HDS PPB Series, creating a stiff but still dampened cone that remains stable even under the greatest sound pressures.

SDS

The Superior Dynamic Sounds (SDS) Series provides the smallest but highest-quality subwoofers in the industry today. Leveraging the best in Danish craftsmanship, but manufactured to be very affordable, these audio transducers are ideal for use in small surround sound systems, but can also be used in a wide variety of end user products and applications. The speakers in this line are combinable with subwoofers in the SLS line–for example, these two products work extremely well together in home theater solutions.

SLS

The SLS line combines high quality performance with an affordable design. These transducers are ideal for use in systems with high power handling requirements, and are logically combined with the SDS line.

XLS

This new series of state-of-the-art subwoofers continue to enhance Peerless’ reputation for delivering the highest quality components for bass in the world. Called the XLS – for “Extra Long Stroke” – these new audio transducers add even more excursion, and completely eliminate distortion.

XXLS

This new series of state-of-the-art subwoofers continue to enhance Peerless’ reputation for delivering the highest quality components for bass in the world. Called the XXLS – for “Xpanded Extra Long Stroke” – these new audio transducers add even more excursion to the Peerless XLS line, and completely eliminate distortion.

Introducing Peerless by Tymphany


Since 2005, Tymphany has manufactured drivers under the Peerless, Vifa, and Tymphany brands. Today we are announcing that we will be unifying these brands under a single brand name: Peerless by Tymphany.

We hope this will help create less confusion across our product line, while also increasing our brand awareness in the marketplace. This change only affects branding – there will be no changes to part numbers, specifications, or ordering information. In the future, we will also be advertising and exhibiting at driver-related trade shows as Peerless by Tymphany.

If you haven’t already, you may want to download our newly published Peerless Product Line Overview and subscribe to our newsletter.
