Fritz Carrera 7 BE Loudspeakers

Fritz Carrera 7 BE Loudspeakers

Back in 2012 I reviewed the Fritz Carbon 7 two-way stand mounted speakers. Prior to that, I hadn’t had much experience with small speakers in general and none in my system. During the review period, I was very pleasantly surprised by the sound quality of these relatively small speakers. As I recall, the sound was surprisingly large and clear, with good bass performance for their size.

I was recently contacted by owner/designer John 'Fritz' Heiler with news that he had a new top of the line speaker, the Carrera 7 BE. Given the surprisingly good time I spent with the Carbon 7, I told him I would be eager to review his new offering. In short order, a large box was delivered with the two expertly packed speakers. I mentioned to Heiler that I didn’t have a pair of proper speaker stands on which to set them up. Soon after, a box containing a pair of Pangea speaker stands arrived from Audio Advisor. I have to say that I was quite impressed with the sturdiness and overall quality of these stands.
