Technics SB-G500


For more realistic sound reproduction, today's stereo integrated amplifiers and stereo receivers are going for bigger and bigger power and must be complemented by speaker systems with high power handling capacity.

The speaker system must also be designed to handle the problem that occurs when even relatively low power amps are used with their tone controls all the way up.

Even if volume is less than maximum, a low power amp operated in this way can damage a speaker unit. To meet these needs Technics developed the SB-G500 with its tremendous 300 watt power handling capacity.

The SB-G500 uses six units symmetrically arranged on the right and left for an even dispersion pattern in both directions and for excellent sound localization.

Without the grille the effect is quite mechanical showing a nose of diffuser but with the grille on this speaker system takes on an elegant look that will match the decor of any room.

Rich bass is, of course, needed for contemporary as well as classical music. If you like disco sound, the bass from the gigantic 41 cm woofer will really impress you. If you prefer classical music, you'll be surprised at the rich lows from the bass instruments in the orchestra.

The system has a resettable thermal relay protection against overload. This protective device does not interfere with the sound under normal conditions but should there be heat build up for some reason, it cuts off the input to protect the speakers.

It is easily and quickly reset by pushing a button. A red LED indicator lights up to indicate that the thermal relay protection has cut off the input to the tweeter.

There is also a level control for the tweeter and super tweeters to tailor high frequencies to individual tastes and room conditions.
