The Neat Acoustics Ultimatum MF5 loudspeaker adheres to the very same principles that mark out the whole Ultimatum project as such an outstanding achievement. The Neat Ultimatum MF5 speaker's ultra-rigid birch-plywood enclosure, unique baffle-decoupling technology, the dual 'isobaric' bass loading and use of twin EMIT ribbon-type super-tweeters are again employed to provide an enthralling listening experience.
The Neat Acoustics Ultimatum MF5 floor standing speakers are a multi-chamber, multi-driver enclosure constructed from Birch Plywood. It is, essentially, a two-way design, using Neat's 168mm main drivers (re-designed to meet the requirements of the ULTIMATUM range), an 'inverted' titanium-dome tweeter, plus two EMIT ribbon-type super-tweeters.
The Neat Acoustics Ultimatum MF5 floor standing speakers visible main drive unit handles bass and midrange and is isobarically loaded by similar drive units located inside the cabinet. The Ultimatum MF5 main tweeter is mounted above it, within a sculpted sub-baffle designed to minimise unwanted diffraction effects. The treble output is augmented by the two upward-firing EMIT super-tweeters mounted atop the enclosure.
Another Neat ULTIMATUM feature is the use of decoupled baffles. The driver-mounting baffles (front & top) are fixed to the main structure via a polyethylene membrane. The total baffle is a 45mm thick 'sandwich' of birch plywood, polyethylene and MDF. This provides a rigid non-resonant platform, which is ideal for optimal performance of the drive units.
The crossover is a minimalist 3 element type (plus damping & attenuating resistors) employing precisely toleranced, low loss air-cored inductors and Neat's newly-developed polypropylene film & foil capacitors. The speaker exploits predominantly first-order crossover slopes and mechanical roll-offs for a natural, uninhibited performance.
