                                             Copied from the Web:

The Guarneri Evolution is a compact, two-way, stand-mounted speaker, albeit one whose earnest appearance suggests something more beneath the skin. Indeed, the Guarneri's enclosure isn't so much a cabinet as it is a combination of complex structures. A spare wooden frame incorporating a single lateral brace is fastened to a pair of sides that are formed in the manner of most archtop guitars: laminated from several thin sheets of tonewood and shaped into a graceful curve on a custom-made press. Those elements are clamped together with upper and lower plates machined from a proprietary aluminum alloy called Avional, then fastened to an Avional rear structure, the edges of which extend into a pair of sound-shaping fins.

 

As in lutherie, orientation of the grain in the Guarneri's wooden parts is taken into account during assembly. Similarly, construction techniques are chosen that control—rather than squelch altogether—resonant energy within various parts of the enclosure: A tuned mass-damper system comprising a short, thick truss rod and a concentric pair of metal discs is fastened to the top plate and adjusted to a precise (and not at all excessive) degree of tightness, while constrained-mode damping sheets with flexible alloy skins are applied to the inner sides, along with thick slabs of a woolly, felt-like material. Thinner pieces of the latter are also used to line a reflex port that's built into the Avional rear panel, while another type of damping sheet occludes the throat of the port, and yet another type of batting fills the area below. Finally, the entire upper half of the enclosure is stuffed with a sort of damping "pillow"—a 20"-wide black fabric bag filled with Bubble-Pak.

 

The baffle is made of 1"-thick MDF, precisely machined to incorporate chamfers on the outside and some strategic bracing on the inside. Every outward surface of the baffle is covered with a thin layer of supple black leather—even the facings for the driver flanges. I'm told the leather serves two purposes: blunting the bounce of stray high frequencies, and providing just the right, pliant grip—a single organic lock-washer, if you will—for the Torx-head woodscrews that hold the drivers in place. Having removed and replaced one of the low-frequency drivers myself, I can attest to the latter function.

 

The Guarneri Evolution's two drivers are designed by Sonus Faber and custom-made for them. The low-frequency driver is a 7" ScanSpeak unit with a very soft rubber surround and a black cone of pulp resembling papier-mâché. (Sonus Faber describes the cone material as "real-time air-dried and non-pressed cellulose fiber." Italy's hyphen shortage is now explained.) The driver has a machined center hub (I can't quite call it a phase plug, since it doesn't protrude far enough into the apex of the cone to hinder the propagation of any waveforms), a very robust magnet, and a cast-alloy frame. The high-frequency driver, also beautifully made, is a 1" silk-dome tweeter designed by Sonus Faber cofounder Ragnar Lian for ScanSpeak. It incorporates a loading chamber of its own, made of plastic.

 

The hardwired crossover network sits at the bottom of the enclosure, apparently in direct contact with the lowermost Avional plate (though there also appears to be a plywood or MDF structure of some sort down there). Among the crossover elements are five very large Mundorf M-Cap capacitors and four hefty Jensen chokes, the latter obscured with a rubbery covering. In all, the crossover network takes up a good deal of real estate inside the cabinet. Stranded wires with clear-plastic insulation are used for connections where axial leads can't reach, and the two pairs of loudspeaker connectors—also fastened to the Avional rear panel—can be used for biwiring or even biamping, if so desired. The crossover frequency is stated as 2800Hz, and the computer-designed network is described as comprising composite slopes.
