JERN11 S Loudspeaker

The JERN 11 S was developed to work very well in small rooms placed close to the walls.
For very deep bass, or for placement away from the walls, a subwoofer can be added.
The JERN 11 S is the new improved version of the JERN 11, which continue in production.
Natural felt cover around the dome of the tweeter absorbs vibrations, diffractions and gives a smoother response.
Sheep wool is added inside the cabinet for improved sound absorbtion.
Cabling is Teflon insulated silver coated multistrand wires, with a braided screen. This cable is tested for superior vibration resistance. It is also used in our other top models.

It delivers High End audio quality. The keys to the superior performance are in its components and choice of materials.
JERN is not a mass producer of speakers. Each speaker remains essentially handbuilt by craftsmen with decades of experience at their fingertips.


The name JERN®

In Danish, JERN means IRON, which refers to the cabinet material.
We use our special grade grey cast Iron (called Vibrakill ®), with a very high amount of Graphite (Carbon) mixed in the Iron.
The Graphite dampens our cabinets vibrations 100 times better than Aluminium, and much better than MDF and wood.
Iron is also much stronger and heavier. This also reduce cabinet vibrations, so you mainly hear the good sound from the loudspeaker cones.

Design

Speakers are a part of our homes just like any other piece of furniture or art, and to most people it is important to have a beautiful and stylish home.
JERN®11 differs from other high end speakers because the choice of material and casting method allows our designers and engineers freedom to create new shapes that improve the performance instead of regular square boxes that compromises the sound quality.
The detailed surface of each speaker is unique to that single speaker. It is just like fingerprints; they look similar but in detail there is no other just like yours.

A new generation

The iron for the cabinet is made from recycled materials and it is good for a lifespan of more than a century.
For the best sound quality, you should only hear the soundwaves from the loudspeaker drivers. So we want to reduce disturbing vibrations and noise from the cabinet. Different cabinet materials give different vibration levels.
Traditionally, speakers are made from wood because of its low cost and ability to reduce vibrations. JERN  focuses on the perfect sound, which is the cornerstone in our production, design, components and choice of materials. The JERN 11, JERN 12 and JERN 14 loudspeakers are made from our special vibration absorbing grey cast Iron (called Vibrakill ) that reduce vibrations up to 100 times better than Aluminium. Our cabinets are also much better than MDF and wood. This is our key component to the clear and clean sound that the JERN  loudspeakers delivers.

 

 

 

JERN 11 S Specification

Design

Two way. Phase linear wide dispersion design. Sealed closed cabinet for the best transient response. No noise from a bass reflex port.

Drive Units

Tweeter: Bespoke Wavecor 22 mm. Wide dispersion. Textile membrane. Natural felt cover around the dome of the tweeter absorbs diffractions and gives a smoother response.

Woofer: Special developed Wavecor woofer 5 3/4 inch 146 mm frame.

Excellent midrange performance due to a new wowen and optimized glass fibre cone design. Fibre Glass Cone.

– Rigid steel chassis with extensive venting for lower air flow speed reducing audible distortion

– Vented center pole with dual flares for reduced noise level at large cone excursions

– Heavy-duty fiber glass voice coil former to reduce mechanical losses resulting in better dynamic performance and low-level details

– Large motor structure for better control and power handling

– Built-in alu field-stabilizing ring for reduced distortion at high levels

– Low-loss suspension (high Qm) for better reproduction of details and dynamics

– Black plated motor parts for better heat transfer to the surrounding air

– Conex spider for better durability under extreme conditions

Frequency response

Typically 45 – 20.000 Hz in room, -6dB at 65 Hz in an anechoic chamber

Measurements done by the experienced reviewer Paul Messenger showed bass down to 32 Hz in his room.

Comments

These loudspeakers were developed to work really well close to walls

Crossover

The phase linear 6dB/octave custom-made crossover uses a Mundorf polypropylen capacitor and a low resistance air core coil.

It delivers a fine 3D soundstage.
