The Drivers
the use of extremely advanced technologies and measurement methods
Sonus faber believes that at the end of the day the only ultimate tool
for evaluating the sound is the human ear. During the development phase
of each individual component, in addition to the analysis of its
technical characteristics, all components are analyzed by ear. All
drivers are manufactured exclusively for Sonus faber from prestigious
Scandinavian manufacturers to the exacting standards and specifications
of the Sonus faber design team.

The Tweeter
sweet and extended high frequencies are generated by an "ultra-dynamic,
high-linearity" 1.1 in. (29 mm) soft dome tweeter that, when fitted, is
isolated from the enclosure using a visco-elastic baffle.

The Midrange
midrange is the heart of the Amati Futura driver. The 7 in., (179 mm)
cone selected for the naturalness of its sound. The use of a special,
air-dried, non-pressed pulp is to gives it its inimitable vivacity. The
powerful magnet system coupled with the 1.7 in. voice coil and a triple
Kellog / Goeller copper rings make the unit virtually free of unwanted
eddy currents. As the speaker covers the crucial mid-band, visco-elastic
is again used to decouple it from the baffle.

The Woofer
two 8.75 in., (220 mm) woofers are optimized to better define their
respective frequency band. This is done though the use of AlMg cone
membranes (aluminum / magnesium) in a layered and coated design.
Furthermore, the damping of cone resonance is accomplished using a
fine-pored foamed hysteresis-elastomer. The free eddy-free current 1.5
in. voice coil in cooperation with the long-throw magnet system provides
excellent low frequency performance both in terms of dynamics and the

The Crossover
Special attention to
the design of the crossover network of the Amati Futura in order to
realize the musicality "of The Sonus Faber." The proper selection and
design of transfer functions suitable for each driver determines the
quality of the overall loudspeaker. The crossover of the Amati Futura
uses a "progressive slope" architecture, typical for many Sonus faber
speakers. It was chosen especially for its superior amplitude and phase
response and for maintaining phase accuracy through the crossover
transition frequencies of 80Hz, 220Hz and 3.2kHz. Additionally, only the
finest component parts were considered including capacitors from
Mundorf Supreme and Jantzen coils.

Questions for the seller
Hello, please tell me why the condition is 8/10 thank you!
Sure, we adhere strictly to the Audiogon grade scale. Which for speakers states no scratches. Can have minor discoloration along edges. These Amati's are in great condition with zero scratches or blemishes. Only there age suggests an 8/10 condition. Thanks,
