The new Coltrane Tenor 2 is our best speaker yet. Designed around the most advanced technology, it’s crafted with absolute reverence for the music. One of the highlights of the Coltrane Tenor 2 is the crossover technique. Specifically developed for the Coltrane Supreme 2, it produces absolutely perfect time and phase coherence. More importantly, it also provides flawless time coincident.
Marten Coltrane Tenor 2 takes everything it has learnt from its big brothers and packs it in to a slimmer form. Its ergonomic cabinets house control and power that you expect from a Coltrane. It’s even easier to place in your room, but still delivers true Coltrane sound.
Power and control in perfect balance.
Coltrane Tenor 2 uses the bespoke crossover technique developed for Supreme 2. The first order crossover makes for absolutely perfect time and phase coherence; and flawless time coincidence.

The Coltrane Tenor 2 is built on the best technology from all our speakers. The cabinet is super-rigid thanks to Kevlar honeycomb sandwiched between carbon fibre laminate – just like the Coltrane Supreme 2. A pure aluminium plate between the solid wood front and the Valchromat fibreboard inside makes for an equally rigid front and incredibly stable sound. Inside you’ll find the Cell technology that we developed with Accuton especially for the Coltrane Supreme 2. The ceramic mid range is exactly the same as in the Coltrane 3. And the diamond tweeters and aluminium sandwich bass drivers are from the Coltrane Supreme 2. In other words, the technology doesn’t come any better. Yet for the Coltrane Tenor 2 we’ve managed to push performance even further. To minimise vibration, we’ve chosen to sit the stainless steel stands on Black Diamond Racing pucks and cones. Meanwhile, we’ve chosen the best terminals on the market: WBT Nextgen with conductors made of pure silver. The internal cabling is the best too – Jorma Design, with the option of upgrading to the flagship line Jorma Statement. And we’ve filled the inside with the just right amount of pure sheep’s wool to provide the perfect amount of dampening. The result is a speaker that does an even better job of reproducing reality – a speaker that sets a new benchmark for high-end audio.
