The JERN®12 WS is developed to work without a subwoofer close to the walls.
For even deeper bass, a subwoofer can be added below 65 Hz.
The JERN®12 WS is the new revolutionary compact speaker from JERN®. It is delicate and discreet but it delivers High End audio quality. The key to its performance is all in its design, components and choice of materials.
The name JERN®12
In Danish, JERN® means IRON, which refers to the cabinet material.
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.
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 is good for a lifespan of more than a century.
Sound quality is an assessment of the accuracy and enjoyability, when it comes to audio output from an electronic device. Sound is all about transferring the soundwaves out of the loudspeaker drivers to you, and reducing disturbing vibrations and noise from the cabinet. Different 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®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.
