Harmon International specializes in high-quality audio and electronic products for automotive, consumer and professional use. Infinity is one of Harmon’s many sibling companies and carries its legendary audio quality to the automotive department. Kappa Perfect was introduced in 1998 as a high-end line of car audio products from Infinity. The Kappa Perfect line has really excelled for Infinity, anyone knowledgeable about car audio has heard of the series. Infinity Kappa Perfect have been winning competitions for years while remaining affordable for the average consumer. When you hear the name Infinity, you hear about their products superb sound quality and innovative, sophisticated use of technology. Infinity says it’s not technology for the sake of technology, it’s technology for the sake of music.
Infinity Kappa Perfect subwoofers are built likes tanks, and ooze technology and innovation. The newest Kappa Perfect VQ (Variable Q) subwoofers feature proprietary Magnesium Metal Matrix (M3D) woofer cones that are 20 times “deader” than aluminum with superior stiffness and damping properties. The Variable Q interchangeable pole pieces allow you to tune the woofers Q exactly how you want it, which is unheard of. If Infinity says its Perfect subs can go as low as 23Hz, they mean it. Kappa Perfect subwoofers are also extremely loud and accurate, following close beats is a cinch and it’s nearly impossible to distort them given the right system. These are the first subwoofers that can easily be optimized for tiny sealed boxes, medium sized sealed and vented and infinite-baffle applications. The perfect mesh of sound quality, accuracy and precision is available with Kappa Perfect subwoofers.
Infinity’s product quality and excellence stems from its passion for music. This passion shines most bright in their Kappa Perfect series component speaker systems. Car audio has been forever changed by the clarity, quality, and presence of the Kappa Perfect line of speakers. Deep-anodized aluminum woofer cones make up the midwoofers of these speakers for incredible detail and accuracy. A 1” edge-driven aluminum tweeter with a rubber surround produces astoundingly bright, crisp highs. For ultimate speaker control, Kappa Perfect speakers have a Linqwitz-Riley crossover network with 3.5kHz tweeter crossover frequency, and -4/0/+5dB tweeter level control. These speakers are hefty and built to last. They run a unique 3 ohm impedance and just beg for power from a quality external amplifier. Kappa Perfect speakers were created using the most advanced technologies for the most critical of audiophiles, and boy did Infinity deliver, on a magnesium metal platter.
Infinity car audio products are crammed full of high end and trick technology. Engineering at Infinity is state-of-the-art and a great deal of computer aided design software is used to devise their products. This includes FEA(Finite Element Analysis) modeling programs, LEAP CAD software, MLSSA FFT analyzers and the new Klippel analyzer. It takes a lot of guts to describe a product as “Perfect”, but after hearing anything from Infinity’s Kappa Perfect lineup you will understand they chose their words carefully.
