The Lowther Acousta 117 is a direct development of the very popular 115 & 116 with some key improvements to build, material and acoustic quality. A versatile, front horn-loaded speaker, that’ll work beautifully in any location in most sized rooms.
The PM6A (with Voigt's whizzer cone design) produces a wide dispersion and an airy, spacious soundstage. Combined with the alnico magnet, the Voigt folded spatial diaphragm reproduces music with a detailed yet balanced midrange and tight, well-controlled bass.
The PM6A offers an authentic musical listening experience, perfectly showcasing jazz, classical and acoustic recordings with its clean, natural timbre and ability to resolve fine inner details. The end result is an engaging yet uncoloured presentation that gets out of the way so the music can shine through.

Front facing Voigt horn
The Voigt horn plays a key role in extending the Lowther Acousta's frequency response down into the bass region, while maintaining a high standard of clarity, precision and blend with the rest of the frequency range.
The horn flares at the front and aims to provide a natural, unfatiguing low frequency response that blends seamlessly and reinforces (rather than overwhelm) the midrange.

Pair with Anything
Whether you prefer the warm tones of a tube amplifier, the precision of a solid-state amp, or the efficiency of a class D amplifier, like all our loudspeakers, the Lowther Acousta will flawlessly integrate with your amplifier of choice.
The Acousta will also house almost all 8" Lowther drive units, giving you the ultimate flexibility for your own personal musical taste.
The craftsmanship and care that goes into each Lowther Acousta loudspeaker sets them apart. Every driver, cone, magnet, and part that comprises an Acousta design is meticulously handmade by veteran artisans at Lowther's UK facility. Skilled hands cut each component to precise specifications, assembling drivers by hand and fine-tuning each loudspeaker to yield the highest performance. The result is a loudspeaker unlike any other - a truly unique and personal creation that has been inspected, tested, and verified to work in perfect harmony.
The human touch inherent to the Acousta's manufacture imbues each pair of speakers with an authenticity and warmth that cannot be replicated by machine. From the very first prototypes in the 1950s to today's latest models, Lowther craftspeople ensure that every Acousta remains true to Peter Lowther's, Paul Voigt's and Donald Chave's original vision of the highest possible musical fidelity attainable.
