Thiel CS6

The CS6 is a reasonably large floorstanding speaker combining a 10" aluminium-cone woofer with a 12" passive radiator and a coaxial midrange/treble unit. Unlike earlier Thiel designs, all three of the CS6's drive-units are made in-house, and much attention has been paid to reducing drive-unit nonlinearity. The coaxial unit is particularly noteworthy, as it places a 1" aluminum-dome tweeter on the center pole-piece of the 4" midrange unit. This unit's cone appears to have a very shallow flare, but it is actually a composite: a cast Styrofoam piece sandwiched by anodized aluminum cones with different profiles. This gives the diaphragm both an optimal shape for the tweeter to "see," and the combination of stiffness and damping it needs to move cone resonances out of harm's way.

As in all Thiel "Coherent Source" designs, the crossover is acoustic first-order, and the front baffle, which is cast from concrete, slopes back to bring the acoustic centers of the drive-units into time alignment on the intended listening axis. The speaker can only be single-wired, via a pair of terminal posts on the speaker's base.
