The VR-35 was made for households with average sized listening rooms and in fact the actual room used to design them was thirteen feet by seventeen feet. One of the emails from Albert Schweikert explained the following to me.
“The VR-35’s sound good in the larger room, since they will put out a high SPL level and have powerful bass response, making the VR-35 useful for a large cross section of audiophiles. However, they do shine in smaller rooms, where a large speaker would not work due to bass overload."
"The general idea of the VR-35 Export Deluxe is to provide a speaker that can be placed close to a wall, since many people are downsizing their homes and do not have the space for a free-field speaker system that needs to be placed several feet into the room. In order to keep the speakers from overloading a small room with excessive bass, the woofer and tuning chambers were expressly designed to be placed from several inches to a couple of feet from the wall behind the speakers. The woofer needed to have a very fast transient response in order to keep up with the twin 6” full range units on the front of the speaker, and the amplitude pressure was designed to be “flat” by using the rear wall’s boost. An added benefit of “boundary bass loading” is that the resistance of the air pressure close to the wall provides extra mechanical and resistive damping to the cone motion, keeping the bass very tight. In fact, we have not heard bass as tight as the VR-35’s, except for electrostatic head phones."
Type: Reference floorstanding loudspeaker
Frequency Response: 25 Hz to 30 kHz (+/- 3dB)
Impedance: 8 Ohms nominal, with a minimum of 5 Ohms @ 25 Hz.
Subwoofer: Scan-Design custom 10" with Low Distortion Motor, laminated composite cone, elevated spider, long throw design, and copper clad pole piece.
Midrange: Two Scan-Design 6" treated paper cast-frame bass-mids with low distortion motors, elevated spiders, copper clad pole pieces, and composite laminated cones using cellulose acetate pulp, plastic resin, and carbon impregnation to eliminate standing waves on the cone surface.
Tweeter: 1" treated fabric dome, Danish-designed Dual Ring design with rear chamber for low resonance and powerful response down to the midrange band, Low Distortion Motor, and custom voice coil/top plate design for low distortion.
Crossover: First order circuit using "audiophile-grade" parts, with cross points set at 80 Hz and 6 kHz. All crossover parts are made by Mundorf and Erse, with custom solid copper foil capacitors insulated with Teflon dielectric film.
Woofer Alignment: Quasi-transmission line design using three chambers, each tuned to a different resonant frequency to extend the bandwidth and reduce "one note bass" typical of ported boxes. Woofer "fires" at rear wall to boost the bass at 20 Hz by 3dB, and can be "tuned" by user.
Power Rating: 35 watts minimum, up to 500 watts on peak music.
Dimensions: 50 x 16 x 12 (HxWxD in inches)
Weight: 112 lbs. each
