Complete Stage Front Technology UpStage Component

The HD-62US Complete Component UpStage System™ was developed by CDT StageFront Audio engineers to create a superior live event listening experience in vehicles of all types.

This compact “UpStage” Ready xover module implements the image enhancing upstage system while holding complexity to an absolute minimum. This versatile crossover module implements the ES-200US two-way crossover with large high quality parts or alternately may be programmed to drive an upstage high-mounted second Tweeter.

This dual functionality is jumper selectable. In simple two-way mode the tapped inductor design Dual jumpers moved together change the crossover to upstage mode. In the upstage mode the drive to the mid-woofer and Tweeter are tapered off to interface with the upstage Tweeter. This tapering is adjustable with three “L” settings and two “C” settings. This alters the crossover frequency and response shape (damping).

The image Tweeter furthermore has seven selectable levels available. Upstage crossover is typically at 8kHz. Main Tweeter crossover is transient optimized at 3.7kHz. No protectors are used.

All Sound Above The Dash!

StageFront “UpStage” Ready System , remove the distracting and low image sound effects from your conventional systems drivers and move your sound onto a seamless sound stage directly in front of you up above the dash.

Simple, Easy, Amazing!

For the first time ever, car stereo audiophiles can enjoy a true”UpStage” seamless sound stage directly in front of them up above the dashboard. A stereo image and a soundstage in their cars that is just as deep, wide and up above the dash and as stable as they are used to at a live concert and from serious high end home audio speakers.

This incredibly up-high and stable image, comes from an amazing new design and engineering concept called StageFront© technology. The new ES-200US xover has it all built in, 2-way “Transient Optimized 24dB elliptic xover and UpStage design all in one xover unit. Relative to individual drivers the CDT Audio Braxial design provides a more predictable result in conjunction with the high-quality external matching crossover network.

This expresses itself as a broader polar response in the crossover region. Also the enhanced time alignment lends precision and clarity through an improved transient response.When the drivers are separated and placed at various distances from the listener some of the design precision is taken out of the system.

Now the installer may need to adjust the Tweeter level to give the best blend. The polar response in the crossover region is optimized by the CDT Audio Braxial construction. The closer the drivers the wider this response will be.

In the case that the Braxial must be mounted inconveniently low, the WS-100i UStage image tweeter could be used to inject a small amount of very high frequencies in an elevated location and in precisely variable amounts to restore extreme high frequency energy and to enhance and raise the image.

Installed design precision is the overall advantage of CDT Audio Braxial based systems.
