Gershman Sonograms

Gershman Sonograms

RRP: £3,800.00 Our Price: £1,250.00



Gershman Acoustics has cultivated a reputation as the Canadian loudspeaker company whose distinctive pyramidal designs are as appealing to the eye as their sonics are to the ear. For avid Gershmanwatchers, the new Sonogram might represent a curious departure. Utilitarian in appearance, it stands in stark contrast to the geometrically outrageous Gershman flagship, the Black Swan. However, by going the traditional boxy-cabinet route Gershman is pursuing a laudable goal—offering the range and kick of its best offerings while hewing to the Gershman ethos, and all at what amounts to be the cost of a good upscale compact.


The Sonogram is a 41" tall, mid-size floorstander in a bass-reflex enclosure. A three-way design, it uses a 1" Peerless soft dome and a Morel 2 1/8" soft dome midrange. The fiberglass woofer is designed by Gershman and manufactured in the States. The transducers are arrayed in a tight formation and positioned as near to the top of the baffle as possible. Crossover points are specified at 300Hz and 2kHz and there’s point-to-point soldering throughout. A narrow, slot-type port is located near the base of the rear panel just above a stabilizing plinth. True to the Gershman philosophy that mandates extreme cabinet rigidity, the Sonogram’s sturdy visage and broad waistline is due to the 1.5"-thick veneered MDF on the side, top, and bottom panels, and the 1" MDF front and back panel. Enclosure reinforcement is similarly heavy duty with four braces bridging the cabinet’s interior panels. In a nod to its own pyramid designs Gershman has incorporated a pair of intersecting sections along the back panel of the cabinet’s interior thus creating a non-parallel surface to break up standing waves, an issue that Gershman always pays much attention to. Hence the clever word play on the term sonogram—defined variously as “using sound waves to create images within a body or structure.” In this instance it implies the quelling of internal resonances and standing waves to improve “imaging” outside the enclosure.
