Technology & Craftsmanship

 

We pay attention to the details.

    The Speaker Cabinet is one of the most overlooked, and least evolved component of the electromagnetic loudspeaker since the first successful speaker in the early 1920’s. Combining engineering and design, we set about creating a new cabinet with the following criteria in mind. The Ideal cabinet must:  

  1.  Hold the speaker driver(s) in an absolutely stationary position on all planes.

  2.  Prevent the interaction of sound waves from the front and back of the speaker drivers

  3.  Produce no sound of its own. This includes cabinet vibrations and resonance.

  4.  Provide damping and tuning to the speaker system.

  5.  Provide the above functions and be inert to temperature and humidity changes.

  6.  Compliment any decor with a timeless design.

 

    Granite is one of the highest density, toughest, and highest compressible strength material available. Due to its structure, it’s even tougher than diamond (albeit slightly less than diamond in sheer hardness). It is also much harder and has a far higher compressible strength than aluminum or even titanium.  

The result is a cabinet that does not resonate in the frequencies it is designed to contain, holds the driver in an absolute fixed position, and does not allow for energy transfer or absorption.  Its mass makes it very stable. Our designs have a low center of gravity and spikes to further increase physical and sonic stability.

     As a result, we don’t need to use internal bracing so that reflection of the sound wave back through the driver is greatly reduced with the least amount of turbulence in the cabinet. Non parallel wall enclosures are also employed in a sloped time aligned baffle array.  This design moves the back wave away from the driver in an efficient manner.  Carefully placed damping material is also employed only as needed.
