Harald Hecken, CEO of Newtronics, set himself the goal to offer high-end
loudspeakers at reasonable prices to the DIY community.
To achieve this goal All Newtronics components like amplifiers, cabinets
and loudspeaker / drivers are for quality reasons designed in Germany and
for cost reasons manufactured in the far east. This results in high-end loudspeakers
that have an unbeatable price / performance ratio: Temperance III.
Harald Hecken concentrates just on the technical aspects. He is extremely
meticulous and leaves nothing to chance. - Sales and marketing is done by
The cabinet needs to be constructed in such a way that there are no weak
spots leading to possible resonance. He is fascinated by merging transmission
line with the low bass of a bass reflex and the clean bass of a closed cabinet
Even for seemingly simple problems - like connections - Harald Hecken tries
to find uncomplicated and thus efficient solutions. The shorter the interconnecting
wires, the better the connection quality. Therefore, the components' lay out
is optimised in such a way that the interconnecting wires / cables are as
short as possible leading to optimum contact.
Inferior drivers often require complicated crossovers. Therefore, he prefers
higher quality drivers that allow him to use simple crossovers with as little
correction as necessary. His speaker designs, like e.g. Temperance (Klang+Ton
2/2000), Empress (Klang+Ton 1/2004), new Temperance (Klang+Ton 2/2004) and
Gate (Klang+Ton 6/2002) are proof of his design philosophy.
