Sonus faber wanted to create a family of speakers rich in design, evocative of those visual and tactile emotions characterized by its production. Wood and leather blend with timeless craftsmanship, the final result communicating a love and passion for music. The Sonus faber Olympica project is made up of a new family of passive acoustic speakers that will add to the existing catalogue from the Vicenza factory, characterized by the use of two iconic Sonus faber materials: walnut wood and leather. The launch of the new family has occurred in two phases. The first three models, Olympica I (2-way bookshelf), Olympica II (3-way floor-standing) and Olympica III (3-way floorstanding), has been presented to the world at the prestigious trade show Munich High End 2013 from 9 – 12 May, while Olympica Center has made its premier on September 2013.
Enhanced “Lyre shape” design, progressive thickness triple curvature cabinet walls damped spread resonance spectrum system. Solid walnut vertical clamps.
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.
Sonus faber MW15XTR. A totally Sonus faber designed 150 mm ultra dynamic linearity midwoofer. 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.
Non-resonant “progressive slope” design, optimized amplitude/phase response for optimal space/time performance. “Paracross topology” on both tweeter hi-pass and midwoofer low pass, cross-over point 2.500 Hz.
50 Hz – 30.000 Hz, tuning port included.
87 dB SPL (2.83 V/1m).
SUGGESTED AMPLIFIER POWER OUTPUT
40W – 150W, without clipping.
LONG-TERM MAXIMUM INPUT VOLTAGE (IEC-268-5)
Natural walnut or graphite multicoated with medium gloss ecologically sensitive lacquer.
