Vibration Control Terminal Vibration Control
Terminal : VCT
A negative impact from unwanted resonances on the transmission of signals can be detected at each point of the reproduction chain. The use of high-quality and stable rack systems as well as special stands, feet or bases may often yield astonishing results.
However, no attention was paid to another important path of mechanical mischief-makers. Cables – necessary to transmit the signal – not only carry electrical signals, unfortunately they also carry mechanical energy which moves at its strongest in the opposite direction to the signal. Therefore, vibrations picked up and measured on a loudspeaker cabinet can be followed back to the source of the signal. Audio Physic has developed the Vibration Control Terminal in order to eliminate such unwanted vibrations. The massive aluminium construction is additionally damped and fitted with a neoprene gasket for elastic suspension ensuring that the binding posts are effectively decoupled from the cabinet.
Audio Physic's three-way and three-and-a-half way loudspeakers are equipped with side firing woofers. Even when applying large-diameter cones, our loudspeakers keep a narrow baffle design which allows for the superb spatial imaging Audio Physic loudspeakers absolutely excel at. Compared to the configuration often used nowadays where the woofers are mounted only on one side, Audio Physic prefers to arrange them on both sides of the cabinet. The drivers are operating in phase (all woofer cones move simultaneously in the same direction, either inwards or outwards). Forces acting on the cabinet are nearly cancelled out with this effective – so called push-push configuration – and precise, low-resonance sound reproduction is achieved. However, the push-push configuration must not be confused with the push-pull principle commonly used for power amplifiers.
Active Cone Damping
Active Cone Damping (ACD) was first developed and implemented by Audio Physic in order to avoid resonances associated with metal cones. A silicone/rubber ring is mounted on the outer ring of the cone where it directly applies pressure on the cone. This is a highly effective means to eliminating the otherwise unavoidable ringing and therefore removes the metallic sound.
When it comes to a three-and-a-half way design, a three-way loudspeaker is supplemented by an additional woofer/midrange driver covering the upper bass / lower mid frequencies up to approx. 500 Hz operating in parallel with the midrange driver.
