‘W’ sandwich cone
The ‘W’ sandwich cone perfectly optimizes the frequency response curve by fully mastering the three key parameters of lightness, rigidity, and damping. When listening through the ‘W’ sandwich cone, the sound is completely transparent with extremely little distortion.
Originally developed for the Sopra line of high-fidelity loudspeakers, our TMD® (Tuned Mass Damper) surround has a unique profile, designed to better control the effects of resonance and to drastically reduce the distortion associated with deformations of the cone. The speaker driver takes advantage of this patented technology by spreading better defined and very realistic midranges.
The progressive spider used on all our Utopia drivers is built around a progressive section that reproduces all the impact of the bass whilst optimizing the linearity, precision, and dynamics of the sound.
All the components on our crossover have been specially selected and optimized to better control the effects of thermal dissipation. These components, essential for managing different channels and the soundstage, have improved reliability. As for the bi-amplification, this enables the woofer and tweeter to be driven separately in terms of power, resulting in optimum performance.
