Overview
A Return To Tradition
The Quad 11L / 12L Classic Signature follows in the tradition of small, monitor class loudspeakers set by the BBC LS3/5a. This precedent set new standards for accuracy and midband definition when it was first introduced and is still held in high regard by audiophiles worldwide today.

A small monitor loudspeaker has distinct advantages both for near field monitoring and for music reproduction at home. The use of relatively small bass/midrange unit provides the possibility of excellent integration with the treble unit, delivering an accurate power response both on the forward axis and in the room.

As a result this mini-monitor design approach yields and expansive stereo soundstage that belies the size of the speaker itself, and the coherent midband gives a lifelike reproduction of vocals and instruments.

Overview
Attention To Detail
According to QUAD's philosophy, high fidelity equipment should add nothing to, nor remoe anything from the recorded sound. The L Classic Signature is designed to that tradition.

Because we manufacture the majority of every part of every loudspeaker from raw materials, our designers and engineers have absolute freedom in developing and experementing with new design and materials. We can create a product with every part tweaked and honed to form a perfect symbiotic relationship with every other part.

The L classic Signature is tonally balanced to suit any music genre and is virtually unrivalled in its ability to retreive all nuances captured by recording engineers, whilst avoiding a clinical sound. It is thoroughly musically involving for the listener and perfectly follows Quad's tradition of 'The Closest Approach To The Original Sound'.

Design
Fine Tuned With Exquisite Detail
Derived from the L Classic Series. This signature range benefits from a more complex crossover optimised for both an even power response, an accurate midband and superior phase integration between the drivers.

In addition the crossover is split into two PCBs reducing the magnetic integration between components.

All uprated parts and tweaks are thanks to a signature configuration by head of acoustic design, Peter Comeau. Finished off with hours of listening and quality checks the result is a more detailed, precise and accurate rendition of any musical performance

Technology
Complete Driver Integration
L Classic's long-throw kevlar driver is manufactured using our proprietary bi-directional Kevlar weave, made from a self-damping resin-impregnated fibre form of material that is then lattice woven to create the appropriate stiffness, strength and weight, and later formed into a cone and mounted on a butyl rubber surround.

The L classic tweeter utilises a precision-engineered waveguide to integrate the midrange and treble in a totally coherent way. The motor system of the bass-midrange unit has been critically alighned for improved liniar motion and low distortion. Acoustically the drive units are combined by an advanced hase-linear crossover utilising low distortion inductors and high clarity polypropylene capacitors in the signal path. Phase coherency is particularly important to ensure the bass integrates perfectly with the treble and of course to create a truly holographic stereo image – the hallmark of the classic QUAD sound.
