Beauty and Innovation Merged in One Creation
Gold Note unique design of the new flagship speaker is based on ultra-rigid, curved and modular panels. The super-dampened case is reinforced with internal double cabinets and external wooden multilayers to control resonances and improve sound quality. The cabinets conveniently separate bass and mid/highs to enhance perfect tuning, and they are connected through a 3mm thick laser-shaped layer in aluminum to increase rigidity and to enable the module design. The bass drivers cabinet is vented while the mid/highs are sealed with a second open chamber featuring a solid aluminum grille to further improve rigidity and reduce internal reflections at the same time. The loudspeaker features an integrated massive wooden & steel 2° lean backward stand with innovative and hidden adjustable spikes.
28 mm custom, ultra-linear and extra-thin and soft dome neodymium magnet featuring aluminum dampened rear chamber and hexagon copper conductor coil. Custom cooling coil radiator with no-oil cotton damping design reduces resonances and increases extension linearity up to 45° off axis.
Two 150 mm ultra-linear horn loaded, light drivers with aluminum elliptical phaser and Nextel treated paper to reach high rigidity and fast natural audio response. Adaptive rubber surround provides an ideal match to the cone over the total frequency range. Extra large magnet system plus long and lightweight CCAW voice coil allows perfect coil excursion and low distortion due to excellent transient response. Solid copper rings mounted above and below the T-shaped pole piece reduce non-linear and modulation distortions and increase overload margin. Extremely stiff and stable skeleton in aluminum/magnesium avoids airflow noise preserving rigidity and lightness.
Two 220 mm ultra-linear horn loaded, light drivers with 6 gm mass with Nextel treated paper and aluminum elliptical phase produce a fast natural audio response in low frequencies. Bass drivers feature large magnet design with bumped back-plate: the large and dampened platform at the back improves stiffness while the extra-long and lightweight CCAW voice coil, allows extreme coil excursion, low distortion and
excellent transient response. Giant copper rings mounted above and below the Tshaped pole piece reduce distortion for better overload margin. Chrome plated brass phase plug reduces compression due to temperature variations in the voice coil. Longterm power handling is increased to eliminate resonances from the cavity inside the voice coil former.
Passive Crossover Low-High Dual-Slop with a cut at 200Hz & 2200Hz and resistive design enables the ultra-linear load to manage amplification without stress on the power supply, even at a nominal impedance of 4Ω. A sophisticated triple crossover network, featuring summing midrange multi-slope design, integrates perfectly drivers of the Array and with the anti-resonance thick glass-fibre board, rewards the listener through a close field smooth audio experience. Air winding, hand-made coils and selected audio grade capacitors and resistors complete the deluxe crossover.
