- Really small floor standing speaker
- Really big punchy sound
- 2.5 way configuration
- EMIT planar magnetic tweeter
Neat’s loudspeakers have long been renowned for creating big sounds from compact speakers. The Iota Alpha succeeds in stretching this concept well beyond the limits of what might be expected.
The original Neat Iota loudspeaker has been a huge and continuing success since 2011, but the idea of a low-down floor-standing version seemed somewhat impossible. However, Neat went for it and produced an exceptionally talented and yet physically diminutive loudspeaker. All that was necessary for the new model was to retain the exceptional abilities of the Iota and build on these in a floor-standing configuration.
Visually deceptive, the Iota Alpha required some unorthodox imagineering. The basis of the original Iota (the main drive unit and the EMIT type planar magnetic tweeter) is housed in the top section of the cabinet, in a sealed volume, angled upwards. This section is configured as a two-way closed box loudspeaker. The whole of the ported lower section is dedicated to augmenting the lower frequencies, via a downward-firing 134mm drive unit mounted on the bottom panel. The crossover is a simple two-and-a-half-way design, employing 1st & 2nd order slopes.
At a mere 45cm tall the Iota Alpha can be placed discreetly in the room, yet it delivers a genuine full-range musical experience on a scale that suggests a far bigger (and more expensive) loudspeaker.
Grahams suggest you partner these speakers with the equally small yet powerful:
