The project.

Sonus faber wanted to create a family of speakers rich in content but also evocative of those visual and tactile emotions that have always characterized its production. Thus, wood, leather timeless craftsmanship values of careful and passionate production, able to make anyone understand the sincere love for their work and Music. The Sonus faber Olympica project is made up of a new family of passive acoustic speakers that will add to the existing catalogue of the Arcugnano factory, aesthetically characterized by the use of two iconic Sonus faber noble materials, walnut wood and leather.  The launch of the new family will occur in two phases, the first three models Olympica I (2-way bookshelf), Olympica II (3-way floor-standing) and Olympica III (3-way floor-standing) will be presented to the world at the prestigious trade show Munich High End 2013 from 9 – 12 May and the remaining part will see the spotlights at the end of the summer. With this new project Sonus faber has been able, with great balance, to unite our quintessential style with the introduction of significant elements of technological innovation, therefore combining modernity with the classic stylistic canons of Sonus faber. This has been possible thanks to the enormous teamwork by the R&D department, headed by Paolo Tezzon and Livio Cucuzza and the significant growth in terms of manpower and resources. The new Sonus faber Olympica line also represents the desire of the Vicenza house to offer its clients a range of models so that everyone can find the right solution in terms of use (two channel or home theatre) and in terms of space (bookshelf or floor-standing in various dimensions) forever insuring the historic Sonus faber quality in relation to materials implemented, design features, performance , and of course the exclusive charm of a speaker designed as a musical instrument and entirely produced in Italy.

SYSTEM 

3 way floorstanding, paralaminar “stealth ultraflex” 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 M8XTR. A Sonus faber designed 80 mm ultra dynamic linearity midwoofer. CCAW wire is used on a controlled “eddy current free” voice coil. The dynamically linear magnetic field motor has a focused field geometry. A special custom diaphragm is made with a 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. A special coaxial anti-compressor is used, designed to remove cavity resonance and distortions.

WOOFERS
Sonus faber W15XTR. A totally Sonus faber designed 150 mm ultra dynamic linearity 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.

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. Highest quality components are used including Mundorf Evo Oil capacitors and Jantzen inductors.

FREQUENCY RESPONSE

50 Hz – 30.000 Hz, tuning port included.

SENSITIVITY
