Sonus Faber Olympica II 3-Way Walnut Floor Standing Speakers (Pair) - OLYMPICAIIWAL

Olympica II
Olympic Theatre: it is design, planning, harmony, proportions, acoustics, sensitivity, search for beauty, wonder, expert processing of materials, emotions. One of the greatest works of the Master and chief architect Andrea Palladio created before his death as a perennial gift to Vicenza, enriching it further with another precious gem and a universal example of beauty and ingenuity. True and exemplary values that all can enjoy and make their own thanks to their glorious and radiant presence. And Sonus faber created in this beautiful and fortunate land could not but make this teaching and principles its own since its very beginning, inextricably linking them to their own history and then applying them in its Musical instruments which proudly resonate with the harmony of the city and the art that inspired them. In acknowledgement of the unique legacy of Andrea Palladio, Sonus faber has decided to create Sonus faber Olympica, a sincere homage to the Olympic Theatre, temple of geometric pleasure in the voice of Music, the container in which sound seamlessly expands and an accurate reference model of acoustic enhancement.

The project.
Sonus faber wanted to create a family of speakers rich in content but also evocative of those visual and tactile emotions that have always characterized its production. Thus, wood, leather timeless craftsmanship values of careful and passionate production, able to make anyone understand the sincere love for their work and Music. The Sonus faber Olympica project is made up of a new family of passive acoustic speakers that will add to the existing catalogue of the Arcugnano factory, aesthetically characterized by the use of two iconic Sonus faber noble materials, walnut wood and leather. The launch of the new family will occur in two phases, the first three models Olympica I (2-way bookshelf), Olympica II (3-way floor-standing) and Olympica III (3-way floor-standing) will be presented to the world at the prestigious trade show Munich High End 2013 from 9 – 12 May and the remaining part will see the spotlights at the end of the summer.
With this new projectSonus faber has been able, with great balance, to unite our quintessential style with the introduction of significant elements of technological innovation, therefore combining modernity with the classic stylistic canons of Sonus faber. This has been possible thanks to the enormous teamwork by the R&D department, headed by Paolo Tezzon and Livio Cucuzza and the significant growth in terms of manpower and resources. The new Sonus faber Olympica line also represents the desire of the Vicenza house to offer its clients a range of models so that everyone can find the right solution in terms of use (two channel or home theatre) and in terms of space (bookshelf or floor-standing in various dimensions) forever insuring the historic Sonus faber quality in relation to materials implemented, design features, performance , and of course the exclusive charm of a speaker designed as a musical instrument and entirely produced in Italy.

Features:

  • Cabinet
    Cabinet is characterized by the use of natural walnut wood, top and bottom in solid walnut and with magnificent joints in clear maple wood in the walnut finish and more traditional black maple in the graphite finish. The form is the synthesis of the experience gained with the flagship Aida and the classic lyre form. The important difference lies in the particular asymmetry of the section introduced for the first time by Sonus faber.
  • Reflex
    The last but significant aesthetic note is the unusual location and geometry of the side reflex port vertically designed and embellished with a perforated metal sheet placed in the vicinity of the long outlet.
  • Natural Leather
    The top is covered in natural leather (with feature stitching and hot branded Sonus faber logo) and aluminum ring, the front baffle is covered in natural leather with no visible screws and the back is also covered in leather with sunken serial number tags below which there are the terminals.
  • Tweeter
    29 mm dome Tweeter containing DAD technology deriving from the experience of Aida and neodymium magnet.

Specifications

  • 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 designed 150 mm 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 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.
  • Woofer: Sonus faber woofer W18XTR is a direct descendant of the 9” speakers used in “Aida”. The salient aspect of the woofer, 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.
  • Frequency Response: 40 Hz – 30.000 Hz, tuning port included.
  • Sensitivity: 88 dB SPL (2.83 V/1m). NOMINAL
  • Impedance: 4 ohm.
  • Suggested Amplifier Power Output: 50W – 250W, without clipping.
  • Long-Term Maximum Input Voltage (IEC-268-5): 20V rms.
