The Carbon Mk IV is the latest version of another long running German Physiks design. Finished in high polish carbon fibre with a deep, clear lacquer coating, it is a luxury version of the Borderland Mk IV, using the same crossover and cabinet, with a single DDD driver and a downward firing 12-inch woofer. Like the Borderland, the Carbon MK IV produces exceptional dynamics and resolution, together with the German Physiks hallmark musicality and three-dimensional stereo imaging.
The Carbon MK IV loudspeaker uses a single carbon fibre German Physiks DDD driver mounted on top of a slim, octagonal, floor standing cabinet, with a downward firing 12-inch woofer set in its base
Improved Bass, Resolution and Dynamics
The Carbon MK IV has always been an exceptional performer. The latest version has a new crossover design that provides significantly better bass, with improved integration with the DDD driver, resulting in exceptional top to bottom coherence. The resolution and dynamics have also been noticeably improved, removing another veil between the listener and the music. All these improvements come together to produce a sound that is truly effortless.
Extended Bass with Low Distortion
The Carbon Mk IV uses a single 12-inch woofer of the same type used in our prestige Loreley model. This provides a degree of bass extension normally associated with high quality component sub-woofers. Most impressive is that this is achieved with a cabinet of relatively modest dimensions, making this a loudspeaker that is easy to live with.
The bass driver is located at the bottom of the cabinet and works in a “sealed” enclosure. This enclosure is linked via a small opening to a smaller cavity located at the top of the cabinet. This cavity acts as a Helmholtz Resonator and is tuned to the resonant frequency of the main bass enclosure and ensures a smoother bass response.
