TWEETER

For this loudspeaker we developed a 28 mm ultra-linear tweeter with an extra-thin soft silk dome powered by a neodymium magnet and featuring an aluminium dampening elliptical rear chamber. This tweeter provides low frequency resonance, minimal harmonic distortion and an exceptional musicality making it a real high-quality acoustic transducer.

MIDRANGE

The upper cabinet houses two 150mm ultra-linear drivers that feature high mass phase plugs and Nextel treated paper cones to reach high rigidity and fast natural audio response.

Adaptive rubber surrounds provides an ideal match to the cone over the total frequency range.

The extra large magnet system with a long and lightweight CCAW voice coil allows perfect coil excursion and low distortion due to its excellent transient response.

Solid copper rings are mounted above and below the T-shaped pole piece to reduce non-linear and modulation distortions and to increase the overload margin.

The driver is completed by an extremely stiff and stable skeleton in aluminium/magnesium to avoid airflow noises and to increase rigidity and lightness.

WOOFERS

Two 220mm ultra-linear slightly horn loaded, lightweight drivers with a 18gm mass featuring Nextel treated paper aid in producing a fast natural audio response in lower frequencies

Bass drivers feature a large magnet design with bumped back-plate: the large and dampened platform at the back improves stiffness while the extra-long and light weight CCAW voice coil, allows extreme coil excursion, low distortion and excellent transient response

Giant copper rings mounted above and below the T-shaped pole piece reduce distortion for better overload margin

A High mass phase plug reduces compression due to temperature variations in the voice coil

Long-term power handling is increased to eliminate resonances from the cavity inside the voice coil former.

CROSSOVER

The sophisticated triple crossover network, with a multi-slope design, integrates perfectly with the driver array. Anti-resonant, thick glass-fibre boards reward the listener with a natural close field audio experience. Hand-made coils and selected audio grade capacitors with exclusive graphite custom GN resistors complete one of the best crossover available today.
