Spendor Launch The SP200 Speakers
T he Spendor SP200 floor standing loudspeaker joins Spendor’s Classic range as the new top of the range model. Four drive units are used in the SP200’s to work in a 3-way speaker with two 12 inch Spendor woofers comprising the bass unit in a sealed or non-ported design. The non ported design helps make room positioning of the SP200 less critical and allows the SP200 to be used in smaller rooms. For such a large speaker the SP200 is very efficient at 89dBb and offers an easy to drive load (8 Ohms falling to a minimum impedance of 6.2 Ohms) for the less powerful amplifiers out there.
