Gradient Five is the result of years of research. The coaxial driver technology developed by Gradient and SEAS of Norway combined with passive radiator manufactured exclusively for Gradient have made it possible to manufacture a compact 2-way loudspeaker of the highest quality. Gradient Five has a modern Scandinavian design, combination of traditional craftsmanship, real wood and new smart materials


The sound balance of Gradient Five is based on long term listening tests and measurements. The on axis frequency response and the power response curves are optimized to give a balanced, airy and easy-to-listen sound. The passive radiator, designed by Gradient is situated in the rear wall of the loudspeaker enclosure. It extends the bass response at the lowest frequencies, without the common disadvantages of vented box designs. Gradient Five will delight the listener with a clean, open sound stage and true to life bass impact.


The one point source driver, as used in the Gradient flagship loudspeaker, Revolution, is very special. It was developed by Gradient and SEAS of Norway and exhibits controlled dispersion patterns, allied to an ultra smooth spectral balance, in a wide listening area. The trademarks of this design are, pinpoint sound staging with exceptional depth and width.


The cabinet of eight litres, is very easy to position. It can be placed in horizontal or vertical position. Best results are achieved on good quality stands, even close to a back wall. Excellent results can also be attained with Gradient Five fixed on wall brackets, or on a bookshelf.


A high quality multichannel sound system can be built using Gradient Five for front, center and surrounds. Since the same coaxial driver has been used in Gradient floor-standing speakers, similar phase properties give the opportunity to mix different Gradient models successfully to produce the very best, cinema and Hi-Fi systems.


The nominal impedance of the Gradient Five is eight ohms and rarely drops below seven ohms, making an easy life for even low powered amplifiers.


The cabinet of Gradient Five is made of finest quality solid birch. The back and front wall of the speaker cabinet are rigid Finnish birch plywood coated in Italian Fenix NTM® nano-tech matt material*. The Fenix NTM®, available in white or black is astonishing new material in many sense. The extremely matt surface is not just good looking. It is also resistant to fingerprints and scratches.

* In all white version the back and front panels are made of white painted MDF.

In Finnish:
' Gradient Five 5.1 on myönteisessä mielessä yllätyksetön tuote. Testissä ei ollut mahdollista verrata sitä suoraan edeltävään
5.0-malliin, mutta vaikutelmaksi jäi, että alemmille äänialueille on löydetty entistä onnistuneempi tasapaino. Keskialue ei nouse liikaa esiin, eikä kumina silti uhkaa bassojen selkeyttä. Mielyttävästi soivaa kaiutinta kuuntelee pitkäänkin ilman kyllästymistä. Päivitetty vitonen on luokassaan erinomainen tuote. ' - Hifimaailma 1/2017
