Sonus faber speaker wanted to make a family rich in content but also evocative of those visual and tactile emotions that have always characterized its production. So, wood, leather, craftsmanship timeless values of a manufacturing careful and passionate able to make sense to anyone sincere love for their work and for the music. The Sonus faber Olympica project consists of a new family of passive loudspeakers that will add to the current catalog of the factory Arcugnano aesthetically characterized by the use of two noble materials iconic for Sonus faber or walnut wood and leather. The launch of the new family has been planned in two phases, namely the first three models Olympica I (2-way bookshelf), Olympica II (3-way floorstanding) and Olympica III (3-way floorstanding) were presented in a world premiere at the prestigious fair industry Monaco High End 2013 May.
System: 3 way floorstanding, paralaminar stealth flow vented loudspeaker.
Cabinet: Enhanced “Lyre shape” design, progressive thickness triple curvature cabinet walls damped spread resonance spectrum system. Solid walnut vertical clamps.
Tweeter: Sonus faber “Arrow Point” DAD (Damped Apex Dome, synthesis of the classic dome and ring transducer) 29XTR2. A Sonus faber designed 29 mm moving coil driver. The ultra dynamic linearity is given by the new Neodymium motor system.
Midrange: Sonus faber M15XTR. A totally Sonus faber designed 150mm ultra dynamic linearity mid woofer. CCAW wire is used on a composite former “eddy current free” voice coil. The dynamically linear magnetic field motor incorporates triple Kellog/ Goeller rings. A special custom diaphragm is made with a real time air dried non pressed blend of traditional cellulose pulp, kapok, kenaf and other natural fibers, developed according to the most natural sound. To further inhibit any residual cone coloration we are using a transparent viscous surface damping coating. Special coaxial anti-compressors is used, designed to remove cavity resonance and distortions.
Woofer: Sonus faber woofer W18XTR is a direct descendant of the 9” speakers used in “Aida”. The salient aspect of the woofer, is to merge high definition, the prerogative of the ‘sandwich’ cones, and an identity in synergy with the sound of the midrange. This goal was reached by developing a “sandwich” membrane that combines a “heart” in hi-tech rigid syntactic foam with external layers in treated cellulose pulp. The 1.5” voice coils “controlled Eddy Current”, together with the powerful long stroke magnetic motor, are guarantees for excellent performance, both from the dynamic point of view and that of linearity.
Cross-Over: Non-resonant “progressive slope” design, optimized amplitude/phase response for optimal space/time performance. “Paracross topology” on both tweeter hi-pass and midrange band pass, cross-over points 250 hz – 2.500 Hz.
Frequency Response: 40 Hz – 30.000 Hz, tuning port included.
Sensitivity: 88 dB SPL (2.83 V/1m).
Nominal Impedance: 4 ohm.
Suggested Amplifier Power Output: 50W – 250W, without clipping.
Finish: Graphite multicoated with medium gloss ecologically sensitive lacquer.
Dimensions: 1055 x 370 x 472 mm (HxWxD).
