Infinity Quantum Line Source
Four Way Loudspeaker System (1977)
From top to bottom, from highs to lows, the Quantum Line Source represents a radical departure in speaker design - an important new direction for Infinity and for the industry.
The Samarium Cobalt EMIT (Electromagnetic Induction Tweeter) is utilized in a multiple configuration 125 centimetres high forming a true line source; producing a deep fan shaped wavefront of high frequency energy; and resulting in excellent horizontal dispersion to all points where listeners might reasonably sit or stand to listen.
Another line source, in the midrange, is made up of six high definition ventilated 3.8 centimetre dome drivers. This unusually
treated grouping has been designed with careful attention to phase and acceleration capability.
The phase coherent midbass coupler, which is transmission line loaded, handles the frequency range in which half of all musical fundamentals lie (200 to 600 Hz), and we have provided a driver that can speak with absolute authority there.
The bass driver is the revolutionary Infinity Watkins Dual Drive Woofer. This brilliantly conceived, patented woofer with two voice coils exhibits an impedance curve that is virtually flat. It reproduces bass frequencies with unmatched accuracy, power, and lifelike presence - in the Quantum Line Source, to 18 Hz.
The Quantum Line Source, has, in fact, opened up all frequencies to previously unheard of levels of power, cleanliness, and three dimensional depth.
This is very probably the most musically accurate speaker ever made.

All drivers are still available. Still sounds great.
