Quad premieres L-ite Plus Home Cinema System


Distinguished Member

British audio brand Quad, is launching its new L-ite Plus home cinema speaker system.

The L-ite Plus package consists of four satellite speakers for the front and rear, plus a matching centre speaker and a compact active subwoofer. It uses driver technology developed from Quadʼs latest ʻL Classicʼspeaker range, coupled to all-new elements including the crossover electronics and curvaceous cabinets.

Each of the five main speakers incorporates a long-throw mid/bass driver (one in the satellites; two in the centre speaker) with 100mm cones made from Quadʼs proprietary bi-directional Kevlar weave. Self-damping, resin-impregnated Kevlar fibre is lattice-woven to create the appropriate stiffness, strength and weight, then formed into a cone and mounted on a butyl rubber surround.

The cones are coupled to a high-efficiency, double hand-wound voice coil and a high-gauss magnet assembly, with a die-cast aluminium chassis to keep everything taut. A profiled phase plug is sited in the centre of each mid/bass cone, helping to smooth the response through the crossover region and nabling a phase-linear response to the tweeter.


The subʼs petite cabinet packs in two mechanically opposed bass drivers with 150mm Duo Tri-Lam cones –a composite cone structure formed from one layer of bi-directionally woven carbon fibre sandwiched between two layers of bi-directionally woven glass fibre.

The subwoofer, satellites and centre speaker are finished with multiple layers of rich lacquer, available in three colour options – High-Gloss Black, High-Gloss White and High-Gloss Ruby Red.

The Quad L-ite Plus home cinema speaker system is available from May. In addition to being sold as a complete 5.1 package, the individual speakers can also be purchased separately.

SRPs are as follows:

Quad L-ite Plus Satellite: £249.95 per pair
Quad L-ite Plus Centre: £199.95
Quad L-ite Subwoofer: £599.95
Quad L-ite Plus 5.1 speaker system (4xSatellites; 1xCentre; 1xSubwoofer): £1199.95
