Square Two

Wilson Benesch

A full range floor standing design based around the same drive technology as it’s book shelf counterpart. The Square Two exists because of our belief that the design philosophy and technology developed for the companies reference lines, could be distilled in a beautiful, handcrafted loudspeaker based on a more traditional aesthetic and cabinet material choice.

The revolutionary Tactic Drive Unit, delivers both the midrange and bass frequency in the Square Two. This powerful, dynamic drive unit is complimented by a bespoke, Wilson Benesch spec, Scanspeak Tweeter. A minimal crossover design ensures that the bespoke drive technology is free to operate optimally, with a pure signal path between the drivers and the amplifier. The Square Two delivers a frequency range from 40Hz to 24kHz.

The Square Series II sound is more than the sum of the drive unit technologies it boasts, internally Wilson Benesch has applied design philosophy developed for its reference loudspeaker lines ensuring that both series share a family sound and class leading signal-to-noise ratios.

Finished with a high gloss or matt veneer expertly handcrafted by Bentley Motors trained craftsmen and the low profile laser cut steel grill create the finishing touches to a remarkable, British built loudspeaker.



Familiar from the Odyssey Range and the Wide Bandwidth Collection, the ScanSpeak Tweeter is a 25mm (1”) fabric-dome tweeter. The tweeter has been modified to a Wilson Benesch specification, featuring an improved magnet assembly and no ferrofluid.


Having secured a £250,000 DTi SMART Award from the government as part of the development of the Chimera loudspeaker, Wilson Benesch developed its on drive technology in the shape of the highly regarded tactic drive unit. A blisteringly fast and dynamic multi role drive technology manufactured entirely in house alongside the unique Semisphere tweeter. The tactic drive unit at the heart of the Square Two, is a highly optimised engineered component built to the exact requirements of the Square Series II.


At the rear of the Square Two cabinet, a unique, high-energy loss diaphragm effectively manages out of phase energy to improve dynamics and perfectly damp the exuberant capabilities of the Tactic Drive Unit. Absorbing energy produced by the drive unit into a lossy structure and thus reducing the potential for resonance in the loudspeaker cabinet. Placed directly behind the mid / bass Tactic Drive Unit, the ABR also enhances the low frequency extension of the drive unit much like a port. In a relatively compact design such as the Square Two, one advantage of the ABR, as opposed to a port, is the relative freedom that the ABR gives in terms of rear wall placement since the ABR does not load a nearby facing wall to the same degree that a port would. For owners with limited space in the listening room, this can be an important consideration.


Each Square Two, like any Wilson Benesch product has been built by a team of highly trained craftsmen. The cabinet design, like the Tactic drive units at the heart of the Square Series II, is the result of a fastidious attention to detail and engineering excellence. It is the same team of engineers and craftsmen that are responsible for the Cardinal flagship and for this reason you can be sure that the Square Two is a true high end speaker system
