-Sonus Faber Olympica Centre Speaker


With the Olympica, Sonus faber wanted to create a family of speakers rich in design, evocative of those visual and tactile emotions characterized by its production. Wood and leather blend with timeless craftsmanship, the final result communicating a love and passion for music. The Sonus faber Olympica project is made up of a new family of passive acoustic speakers that will add to the existing catalogue from the Vicenza factory, characterized by the use of two iconic Sonus faber materials: walnut wood and leather.

The launch of the new family has occurred in two phases. The first three models, Olympica I (2-way bookshelf), Olympica II (3-way floor-standing) and Olympica III (3-way floorstanding), has been presented to the world at the prestigious trade show Munich High End 2013 from 9 - 12 May, while Olympica Center has made its premier on September 2013. With this new project, Sonus faber has been able to balance quintessential style and significant elements of technological innovation, 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, as well as a significant growth in terms of manpower and resources.

The new Sonus faber Olympica line also represents the desire to offer a range of models that everyone can find the right solution in terms of use (two channel or home theatre) and space (bookshelf or floor-standing in various dimensions). While guaranteeing the Sonus faber historical quality in terms of materials, careful assembling performances and of course the exclusive charm of a loudspeaker made as a musical instrument and entirely produced in Italy.

Enhanced “Lyre shape” design cabinet, progressive thickness triple curvature cabinet walls damped spread resonance spectrum system. Solid walnut vertical clamps employed.

Sonus faber “Arrow Point” DAD (Damped Apex Dome), is a synthesis of the classic dome and ring transducer 29XTR2. A Sonus faber designed 1.1” (29mm) moving coil driver. The ultra dynamic linearity is given by the new Neodymium motor system.

Sonus faber M8XTR. A Sonus faber designed 80 mm ultra dynamic linearity midwoofer. CCAW wire is used on a controlled “eddy current free” voice coil. The dynamically linear magnetic field motor has a focused field geometry. A special custom diaphragm is made with a 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. A special coaxial anti-compressor is used, designed to remove cavity resonance and distortions.

Sonus faber W15XTR. A totally Sonus faber designed 150 mm ultra dynamic linearity woofer. 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.

Non-resonant “progressive slope” design crossover, optimized amplitude/phase response for optimized space/time performance. “Paracross topology” on both the tweeter hi-pass and midrange band-pass. Crossover points are 250Hz -2.5kHz.
