Carver is world-renowned as an innovative audio company. It's not surprising, then, that Carver took a bold departure from conventional thinking when designing the AL-III loudspeaker.

The results of Carver's creative habits are likely to forever change your assumptions about what a high-performance, moderately priced loudspeaker system can and should be. You will experience breathtaking transparency, precise imaging, vivid detail, and a sense of depth and spa-ciousness never before heard outside the concert hall.

External appearance tells you the AL-III is not merely another reworking of time-worn, cone-and-dome designs. Instead. virtually all the music is reproduced by a single, 48-inch. full-range ribbon driver. (Only the lowest bass octaves are handled by the single, downward-firing woofer.) This elegantly simple solution eliminates the crossover distortions, phase anomalies, and box colorations inherent in most conventional designs.

Because the AL-III is a dipolar transducer, with sound radiating to front and rear, the overall sonic effect is astonishingly realistic. Each instrument is heard as if etched in space, stable and precisely defined, with a surrounding acoustic ambience of uncanny width and depth.

Here's one reviewer's impression of the AL-III's astonishing openness: "It is a very addictive quality-difficult to describe, but once experienced, Never forgotten!" This addiction, rest assured, is both affordable and harmless to your health.
