Sonus faber Olympica III Loudspeaker
This variant is currently sold out
Few speakers are able to combine such a brilliant balance of technical innovation and quintessential style.
The Olympica III has a 29mm dome Tweeter containing Damped Apex Dome (DAD), derived from the development of Aida – one of Sonus faber’s leading systems.
It has a totally Sonus faber designed 150mm 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 custome diaphragm is made with a real time air dried non pressed blend of traditional sellulose 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.
There is a 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 points 250 hz - 2.500 Hz.
