"The Divine Towers offer exceptional midrange detail, elite bass resolution, and an almost calming presentation that was voiced with a lot of care and even more ambition."
- Tarunvir Bains, Audioholics
As one of the best floor standing speakers on the market, the Divine 100.49 is an absolute jewel in every way. The ceramic midrange driver which is used originates from the German high-end manufacturer Accuton and is one of the best worldwide. In combination with the ceramic dome tweeter and the two SEAS Aluminum bass drivers, its sound reproduction is a perfect balance of harmony, smoothness and accuracy. Due to the unbelievable performance of the drivers, the 100.49 can play inconceivably high sound pressure levels and still act with full precision and control. Convince yourself by listening to this masterpiece of loudspeaker construction!
The Divine 100.49 is built around the fantastic C173-T6-090 midrange, one of the best midrange cones from the German high-end driver manufacturer Accuton. It is usually used in only the best and most expensive high-end speakers in the world. The tweeter is also one of the best ceramic dome tweeters available today. It is the KE25SC, also from a German driver producer, Visaton. These two high-end drivers are supported by two excellent 10" aluminum bass drivers from SEAS.
The highly complicated frequency filter network provides the ability to adjust the level of each driver and adapt in this way the entire speaker not only to the space, but also to your personal preference. It is possible to adjust the level of the tweeter, midrange driver and the two bass drivers to achieve a perfect result. Further adjustments can be done by using the 3 supplied plugs for the bass reflex tubes to close the housing of the Divine for even better precision.
The housing of the Divine 100.49 consists of several layers of MDF with a thickness of up to 90mm so it achieves a highly rigid structure. As additional support, the convex sidewalls keep resonances inside the cabinet to a minimum. Furthermore, the effective damping material that is used helps to award the 100.49 its unique superiority. The housing consists of several chambers in order to provide the respective drivers with optimum working conditions.
Two options are available for the surface of the Divine 100.49. The first is a black piano lacquer that is applied in a complex multi-layered process to achieve an absolutely pure and homogeneous surface quality. Alternatively, a high-quality real wood walnut veneer can be chosen which gives the Divine a unique appearance.
The connection terminal of the Divine 100.49 includes gold tri-wiring connectors to provide a perfect fit for the speaker wire. In the terminal you also find the numerous ways to customize the sound of the speaker. It is also possible to use the Divine 100.49 as a fully active speaker, controlling all the individual drivers via an external crossover.
All drivers of the Divine 100.49 are protected by metal grill to avoid potential damage. The covers for the tweeter and the midrange driver are permanently installed and optimally matched to the drivers. The covers of the two woofers are removable and thus offer the possibility of changing the look of the speaker, as desired.
We have chosen an ultra-fast ceramic tweeter, made for reproducing crystal clear sound, even at high SPL levels without any distortion. The tweeter is produced by the German company Visaton, and is an absolute reference class unit. It is shielded, with an internally damped cavity and a ventilated voice coil. The tweeter offers an extremely flat frequency response and a low resonance frequency.
XTZ Divine 100.49 uses T&P C173N-T6-90, one of the best (if not the best) midrange driver in the world and can only be found in extreme High End loudspeakers. T&P C173N-T6-90 is a ceramic driver with a light cone, equipped with a neodymium magnet. The driver is extremely stiff and at the same time light, which contributes to the high sensitivity. The two black dots are far from a design gimmick. Thiel & Partner has put them there for a reason. They suppress a resonance from the cone. The Accuton driver offers the highest quality and highest resolution; this is the reason that this driver is put in the best speakers in the world.
As woofers we selected two aluminum 10” drivers from the Norwegian company SEAS which has been producing drivers for the last 60 years. It is with the application of this multi-decade experience that Seas has built this driver. The woofer has a cone made out of pure aluminum. The molded metal basket is a "high flow" type that is acoustically transparent, offering high precision as the basket is shaped exactly thanks to the molding process. This makes sure that the basket is very stable and that it efficiently reduces resonances. The basket is absolutely non-magnetic, which contributes to the higher efficiency of the driver. A strong magnet combined with the light cone yields high efficiency and a good transient response. The gold-plated terminal reduces contact resistance and serves as an anti-corrosion coating. Large windows in the basket both above and below the spider reduce sound reflection, air flow noise and cavity resonances.
When XTZ produced the Divine 100.49 a great deal of effort was put into designing the crossover filter. All passive components are of the highest possible quality to minimize the influence on the signal. We use an optimal selection of air wound coils (with low internal resistance) and coils with steel cores (these accept a high level of magnetic saturation), MKP capacitors and MOX resistors. The Divine crossover is basically a 3rd order filter for woofer and tweeter and a 2nd in the midrange. The exceptionally good Accuton midrange driver led us to this solution. With its smoother roll off, it contributes to both the bass and treble response, so this smoother cutoff leads to a more consistent, even sound. The 100.49 terminal is divided into two input areas: one for passive (normal) connections and one for active connections. The active inputs connect directly to the drivers. The thought behind this is that the speaker can be used in a fully actively manner in the future in order to get the most out of the system. When using the bypass jumpers in the middle of the terminal, the speaker is in “passive mode” and is connected to the passive cross over.
The Divine 100.49 is equipped with XTZ’s Room Tuning concept which with simple settings can alter the speaker’s sound character. Inserting the two bass plugs into the vented holes opens up different options that will create three different bass variations in the sound. The terminal is equipped with jumpers that allow adjustment of the tweeter in 2 ways: 0dB and +3dB. Likewise, both the midrange can be adjusted similarly (0dB and -2dB) and the woofer (0dB +3dB).
