The models of the Sonus faber Olympica line are entirely new. For their creation, the Sonus faber design studios began from a clean slate. No component, element or design has been borrowed from previous models. Rather, cumulative experience and technology have been used to build innovative new cabinet structures and driver components.

CABINET DESIGN:

Characterized by the use of natural walnut wood, the top and bottom plates are solid walnut. All joints are clear maple wood in the walnut finish, and the more traditional black maple in the graphite finish.

The form is a synthesis of the experience gai- ned from the flagship Aida and the classic lyre form. The important difference lies in the asymmetry of the cabinet, introduced here for the first time by Sonus faber. This asymme- try has true purpose: first, it further reduces

internal resonances by removing all parallel surfaces. Second, it accommodates the new bass reflex system.

The top is covered in natural leather (with fe- ature stitching and a hot-branded Sonus faber logo) and a beveled aluminum ring. The front baffle is covered in natural leather with no vi- sible screws, and the back is also covered in leather with sunken serial number tags and connection terminals below. Lastly, the new side reflex port lies vertically at the back of the speaker. It is covered with a perforated metal grille.

For the bookshelf model, a special anodized aluminum stand (derived from the Guarneri model) allows the speaker to be positioned at the correct inclination and, just like the floor models, is equipped with adjustable stainless steel feet to ensure stability and durability.

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 designed150mmultradynamiclinearitymidwoofer. 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.

WOOFERS

Sonus faber wooferS W18XTR are direct descendants of the 9” speakers used in “Aida”. The salient aspect of the woofers, 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.
