The huge wealth of knowledge gained through the ambitious ‘The Sonus faber’ project in terms of research and development in innovative and extraordinary technical and functional solutions has brought us to a new and very exciting project. A speaker as grandiose as an opera by Giuseppe Verdi, able to revolutionise, and at the same time express, the essence of Sonus faber values. A speaker born from the heart of the Team, able to reveal how much Sonus Faber has evolved and yet maintaining its original spirit and combining ‘tradition’ with ‘technological innovation’
3.5 way, Sound field Shaper Technology, “Zero Vibration Transmission” technology, para-aperiodic vented box “Stealth Reflex System”, staggered low frequency floorstanding loudspeaker system.
“Lyra shape” design, dual side curvature, special cross grained okoumè plywood, used in a double thickness constriction layer damped configuration. Sub–structural ribs are strategically placed for total rejection of spurious vibrations and standing waves control. Two “dampshelves” (from “The” experience), i.e. CNC anodized machined avional “vibration dampers” (on the top and on the bottom of the cabinet) “stiffen” the column structure reducing consistently structural micro-vibrations coming from the cabinet walls and the transducers. The “Anima legata” system is used in an innovative way, encompassing the 3 inner chambers of the front firing drive units. A special steel rod, a high speed mechanical interface, concentrates the remaining micro-vibrations conveying them to the dual multiple “Tuned Mass Dampers”, i.e. two differently tuned special custom devices optimized to erase micro-vibrations, by oscillating in anti-phase. A totally new floating bridge “Bow spring” suspension for vibrational interface has been devised to decouple the enclosure from the floor through the Zero Vibration Transmission technology, a patent pending suspension system, eliminating any acoustic feedback and any vibration propagation to the listening room.
Sonus faber “Arrow Point” DAD (Damped Apex Dome, synthesis of the classic dome and ring transducer) 29 XTR-06. A Sonus faber designed 29 mm moving coil driver, with Sonus faber’s vibration optimized mechanical interface. The ultra dynamic linearity is given by the new Neodymium motor system. Implemented with a natural wood acoustic labyrinth rear chamber, a mechanical anti-resonator designed for this application. To perfectly match the high frequency performance to different listening rooms and different tastes it is possible to adjust the SPL of the tweeter.
Sonus faber M18 XTR-08. A Sonus faber designed 180 mm neodymium magnet system ultra dynamic linearity midrange. CCAW wire is used on a composite former “eddy current free” voice coil. The dynamically linear magnetic field motor incorporates triple Kellog/Goeller rings.
Sonus faber W22 XTR-12. A pair of Sonus faber designed 220 mm lightweight “sandwich” cone structure (high-tech syntactic foam core and two external surface skins of coated cellulose pulp) woofers are embebed in an acoustically amorphous “stealth reflex” chamber
Sonus faber SW32 XT-08. Sonus faber designed a 320 mm infra woofer, lightweight honeycomb composite sandwich cone structure with Nanocarbon technology for a maximum rigidity and implemented it in an acoustically amorphous “stealth reflex” chamber
SOUND FIELD SHAPER
The special patented Sound field Shaper technology, a direct derivation from the “The”, allows the control of the direct/reverberant radiation ratio of the Aida. The sound field shaping module can be SPL optimized
SOUND FIELD SHAPER TWEETER
29 mm ultra dynamic linearity neodymium dome driver. Optimized off-axis radiation for this special application.
SOUND FIELD SHAPER MIDRANGE
120 mm, paper pulp/natural fiber blend cone driver for maximum coherence with the front midrange emission
Non-resonant design, optimized amplitude/phase response for optimal space/time performance. “Paracross topology” on the tweeter hi-pass
20 Hz – 35.000 Hz, Stealth reflex included.
92 db SPL (2.83V/1 m).
100W – 1KW, without clipping.
1725mm x 482mm x 780mm (HxWxD).
330 Kg per pair – net weight
550 Kg per pair - shipping weight
(The shipping weight may slightly change from time to time because different humidity values over the year might affect the wooden boxes’weight).
