Listening to music is ecstasy, seduction, rapture and intense pleasure; never should it be constriction or nuisance. This is the basis of our belief that natural and fatigue free listening are the keys to obtaining ideal sound reproduction: suggestive and sensual.
to a "new standard" for the future.
The Exo-Squeleton clamp is implemented by the 2 CNC machined avional nickel-plated end-covers (on the top and on the bottom of the cabinet). Their role is to control and constrain residual resonances of the enclosure walls.
TUNED MASS DAMPER
The two end-covers are linked by the dual avional rear wings, functioning as a high speed mechanical interface that conveys spurious vibrations to the base of the cabinet. A Tuned Mass Damper, with multiple tuning frequencies, like on record skyscrapers and F1 cars converts the residual vibrations into heat (thermkinetics) by out-of-phase vibrations.
The Stealth Reflex is the Sonus faber patented solution to implement a para-aperiodic vented system. Besides enabling to reduce the dimensions of the cabinet, better low frequency and lower distortions are reached. It has also the advantage of eliminating the port noises typical of classic bass-reflex systems.
The speaker system is mechanically decoupled from the floor by the patented L.V.T. system (Low Vibration Transmission). This is an elastomer based suspension system to substantially reduce transmission of spurious vibrations to the listening room; also acoustic feedback phenomena are inhibited.
THE ACUSTIC ENCLOSURE
The cabinet is the highest expression of the Lute shape design. The progressive curvature walls, made out of cross-grained okume multilayer plywood, are technically implemented in a constrained layer damping fashion. The acoustic ambient of every transducer has been designed to come as near as possible to the theoretical optimum.#Specific stiffening ribs are strategically engineered in each acoustic sub-enclosure. Sound absorption has also been taken care of with utmost precision, by selecting the right material for every application and location, from open cell foamed thermoplastics to fibrous materials, akin to the felt used in pianos.
The dual 9” woofers have been designed to get the best possible definition in their passband, while eliminating the usual coloration and resonance problems of metal cones. The solution has been to use AlMg cones in a layer-damped structure by damping the cone with triple foamed closed cell high hysteresis elastomer structure.
