Indiana Line Tesi 261
Indiana Line is one of the most important Italian brands offering loudspeakers and installation speakers. Its traditions date back to the 70s of the last century, and more precisely to 1977. The designers and engineers working for the Indiana Line brand seek to achieve high-quality workmanship, with rational use of components to achieve the sound that goes far beyond the parameters achieved by competitive models available in a similar price range.
The essence of the Italian style
The design of the Tesi series loudspeakers is embodied in their classic and modern cabinet with rounded corners. This is confirmed by the Tesi 261 bookshelf model. A durable and, at the same time, very aesthetic vinyl has been used here. It is available in three colors – white, light walnut and black oak. The design of the Tesi speakers makes the models belonging to this Indiana Line series perfect for interiors with almost any arrangement. The bookshelf Tesi 261 not only looks good but also provides a complete, mature sound that is unrivaled in its price.
Tesi 261 – for medium-sized rooms
The Indiana Line Tesi 261 bookshelf loudspeaker is a 2-way design with a 26 mm dome tweeter and a 160 mm mid-woofer. The woofer is characterized by a large linear excursion, which allows for high dynamics of the reproduced audio signal. The bass reflex port is located at the front, which makes it much easier to place the speaker. Designed for medium-sized rooms (up to 20 m2), the Tesi 261 speaker will be useful, among others, as the main pair of speakers in a stereo system wherever there is no room for large floorstanding models. The loudspeaker has an amplifier loading impedance between 4 – 8 ohms, and the power of the amplifier to drive this loudspeaker should be in the range of 30 to 120 W.
Detailed and clear sound
The mid-woofer cone in this loudspeaker is made of a mixture of polypropylene and mica. As a result, it is stiff, and thus appropriately adapted to the precise reproduction of even the smallest details in the audio signal. The phase plug located in the middle of the woofer allows a wide dispersion of mid-frequencies, richly saturating the listening room with them. A silk dome tweeter with a neodymium magnet and a radial rear chamber is placed in an undercut and specially contoured front, as close to the mid-woofer as possible. It offers clear treble and guarantees great blending with the mentioned mid-woofer. The low and smooth tuning of the bass reflex system allows for deep and dynamic bass, which gives the music rhythm and energy. What is important, the tweeter filter uses only air coils and foil capacitors, which significantly affects the refinement of the Tesi 261’s sound in comparison with the competitive loudspeakers.
