Introducing the Gauss 7 — a tribute to greatness.

 

Classics never die — Avantone is proud to bring Gauss back to the world with the Gauss 7 reference monitor. 

 

Decades after the disappearance of the Gauss Speaker Company, the line has returned with a proper (low-end) bang. Gauss 7 mixes the old-school snap of vintage near-field monitors, with the bandwidth and frequency response of new-school monitors. 

 

Its GAU-AMT tweeter provides ultra-smooth response, with an impressive stereo-field — making hours of listening time only feel like minutes. The folded AMT driver can only be described as transparent and accurate, with detailed transients. The Gauss 7 system delivers a super-wide “sweet spot”, precise imaging, and an impressive, natural, and accurate mid-range response.

 

Gauss 7 also features simple, yet very powerful acoustic-tuning controls. That, paired with the vertical dispersion of the GAU-AMT, means clean acoustic response in any room environment.

Gauss: the legend is back.

 

The GAU-AMT: a hi-fidelity AMT driver.

 

At the heart of the Gauss 7 lies the custom, patented-design GAU-AMT tweeter. The GAU-AMT provides the upmost detail, even to the most subtle of waveforms. The GAU-AMT’s delivers incredible stereo imaging, while maintainin a small vertical throw — this reduces unwanted acoustic reflections in a room, which helps minimize phase issues in an acoustic environment.

 

GAU-AMT’s impressive transient response comes from it’s 65mm polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film folded membrane, — the result is far beyond what can be achieved in typical dome tweeter designs. PET film was chosen as it’s the lowest resonant-frequency film, and hosts the lowest crossover point — all while still providing exceptional high-range frequency extension. The GAU-AMT coil is aluminum-etched PET film that is folded. The assembly is mounted in its own enclosure to prevent the backwave pressure from woofer. 

 

The high-end frequency response (up to 22kHz) makes for an exceptional reference monitor for a massive range of music and sound materials. “Air frequencies” aren’t just audible, but very smooth. This not only provides an incredible reference monitor, but a monitor that’s built to listen to for hours-on-end.

 

A unique woofer design with old-school snap, and new-school bandwidth.

 

Gauss 7’s woofer takes great inspiration from our AV10-MLF “white cone” woofer, yet was still engineered from the ground up. The woofer cone is a pressed design, made of the same proprietary blend of wood pulp and glass fiber found in the CLA-10 series woofer (AV10-MLF) — but with a major increase of materials. This provides the hard snap, and fast transient response of the CLA-10, but with much more low-end. Tighter voicing isn’t going to be heard here — Gauss 7 provides a wide bandwidth for fantastic mid-range, and great low-end reference.

 

The woofer’s motor structure is made of low-carbon 1008 steel — enabling the highest about of magnetic flux density between the pole piece and top plate. To top it off, the surround of the woofer is Japanese a uni-directional styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR), which optimizes the power and excursion of the woofer.

 

A rear-firing bass port gives Gauss 7 a controlled, yet punchy low-end — tight response, without being the typical “over-hyped” low-end found other speakers in it’s price-range.

 

Easy-to-use Acoustic Tuning controls.

Balanced XLR and ¼” TRS inputs make connections a breeze, but it takes a bit more than just that alone to give a monitor studio-strength. The back panel of Gauss 7 has powerful, yet easy-to-use acoustic tuning controls — perfect for tuning the system to your room. A three-position Acoustic Placement switch allows you to optimize Gauss 7 to boundary spaces in your room. A three-position High Trim switch helps refine additional room issues. Each Gauss 7 has it’s own Gain control for proper system calibration.
