Perhaps the most interesting addition to the line, the wall-mounted speaker makes the collection complete and versatile
Essence of a brand
Since 1983, many moments have marked the history of Sonus faber; the launch of the Olympica Collection 6 years ago is one of them. One of the first lines presented as a complete family of products, but above all, the very first one to feature original drivers, entirely designed in Sonus faber. Olympica Nova is the second generation of the iconic family of 2013, improved in its form and substance, imbued with the timeless values that inspired us in creating the original line. The result is a new Collection that embraces the most advanced technologies that already enhance Sonus Faber's most prestigious creations.
The lack of flat and parallel walls improves enclosure performance and maintains the typical asymmetrical Lute shape of first generation Olympica. The asymmetrical shape of the cabinet is an original design concept that allows versatile positioning of the speakers to tune the bass response in any room. Inspired by nature, the lines follow the flow of a circular spiral motion, achieving a more organic cabinet structure. No longer just a functional element added to handle airflow, the reflex duct is now fully integrated into the cabinet, further improving the speed and transparency of sound.
Olympica Nova Wall ensures a compelling music or cinema experience in any environment. With an included mounting bracket, this model is easy to install and optimized for near-boundary placement.
The crossover netwrok features the Paracross Topology, making the crossover less sensitive to radio-frequency interference, improving transient response and lowering noise floor. The filtering topology features new exclusive Clarity Cap capacitors, customised for Sonus Faber
it shares itc technical characteristic with the bigger siblings' midrange. As a matter of fact, it is the same speaker but with two main differeces. The fabric hand coated dust-cap, which is implemented to maximise the diaphragm's emitting surface and therefore allowing for deeper low frequencies extension while, at the same time, perfectly blending with the tweeter from teh tonal balance standpoint. The additional winding of the voice-coil improves the driver's excursion allowing for much longer throw.
The natural leather embellishes the tweeter and the pair of midranges and enriches the aesthetic rings around the woofers. Genuine Italian leather that, as per Sonos Faber's tradition, is applied by hand in the production department in Vicenze.
The 28mm silk soft dome tweeter features the DAD technology (Damped Apex Dome) that enhances the smoothness and extension in thehigh frequency by applying local dampening to the apex typically responsible for anti-phase behaviour of soft dome diaphragms. The DAD structure has been totally redesigned; a solid piece of aluminium die-cast includes both arch and ring on the dome to increae the strength and accurqacy of the system.
The 150 mm passive radiator takes up the fine tuning of the loudspeaker
Just like the rest of the cabiner, the front baffle is made in the walnut or wenge hand-finished natural wood. Sonus Faber designers wished to pay homage to the most representative material of Sonus Faber, making it even more of a standard-bearer.
