SWING


Thanks to our long and distinguished expertise in high end speakers, designing an elegant, performing and compact speaker was a challenge we needed to meet. SENSA and SWING share the same sober design for which the load volume remains optimum. SWING is a versatile speaker : stand mounted as a classical use, simply laid on a piece of furniture or integrated in a bookcase to comply with space constraints.
 

SPECIFICATIONS

DRIVE UNITS

  • A 16cm mid/woofer with an « isotactic matrix », cone like in Armonia, Edena and their big sisters.  This material made of woven polypropylene strips, combines stiffness, lightness and good damping properties.

  • The long moving coil allows a long linear excursion. Which is quite amazing for a speaker of this size.

  • This drive unit comes also with an original suspension, featuring radial stiffeners that lower the interferences.

  • High frequencies are reproduced by a tweeter, member of the famous “Ring Radiator” family.

  • In addition to its unusual profile, it has a bullet shape waveguide and a rear damping chamber. The result is an extended frequency response, both at the top end (to above 40kHz), and at the bottom end to allow easier coupling with the bass/mid range drive unit.
     

CROSSOVER

  • High frequencies are reproduced by a tweeter, member of the famous “Ring Radiator” family.

  • In addition to its unusual profile, it has a bullet shape waveguide and a rear damping chamber. The result is an extended frequency response, both at the top end (to above 40kHz), and at the bottom end to allow easier coupling with the bass/mid range drive unit.

  • Proprietary « DRIM » structure with a triple attenuation slopes

  • This technology cancels intermodulation on each sections of the crossover, which result in unsurpassed clarity and resolution

  • Same high level component qualities as in Sensa

  • Each set of drive units (tweeter and mid/woofer) are individually measured and crossover values adjusted according to these measurements sets.

  • Hand wiring on a 140 µm copper printed circuit board.

  • Optimized crossover structure to avoid magnetic interference between components
     

ENCLOSURE

  • The main goal, with this new cabinet design, was to limit vibration propagation on the most critical panels (especially on the back panel).

  • High thickness panels (18mm)

  • Internal dual cavities framework with one bracing panel to stiffen the structure and create very specific areas where damping materials can be applied

  • Optimized bass reflex loading allowing reproduction of low frequencies, uncommon for such a size speaker.

  • Importance is given to damping treatment to cancel any standing waves. We are using 2 different types of dumping materials
     

  • 3 different standard finishes available: Satin: cherry. High Gloss : Piano black, White
