The Aerial Model 7B is a high-performance 3-way column speaker designed for the discriminating listener. It performs well in either high quality music or theater systems. For critical music listeners it provides accurate tonal balance, precise imaging, tight bass, and excellent transparency. For home theater use, it also provides high power handling and wide dynamic range.

The Model 7B's compact size, narrow width, and extensive internal bracing reduce cabinet coloration to mini-monitor levels. Three 2" thick walls, tight tolerances, and several constrained-layer damping blocks further reduce cabinet coloration. In addition the midrange driver is mounted in a separate wool-filled chamber.

The Model 7B continues the design philosophy of other Aerial speakers. Its twin long-throw woofers were developed specially for the 7B. They employ large vented magnets, 40 mm diameter coils, and cast frames. Bass is quick, dynamic, and deep. The critical midrange is handled by an unshielded version of the highly acclaimed Model CC3 midrange driver. Midrange is well resolved and natural. The tweeter is Aerial's exclusive, highly refined 10T tweeter. It provides detailed, transparent, extended highs without acoustic signature. The bi-wirable networks are built on two separate glass epoxy circuit boards using precision components and high quality wiring.

All cabinets are carefully produced in mirror-imaged pairs using the finest veneers finished to a very high standard. In addition the veneers are book-matched for symmetry on each side. The finish quality is exceptionally high. The optional floor stand is recommended for tighter bass on wood floors as well as for increased stability.
