Sonus Faber Sonetto Viii

Italian Poetry - Sonus Faber sound, Your Home

 

The flagship of the Sonetto Collection, the biggest speaker that evolves the line.

 

Italian Traditional Culture

Sonus faber always found its inspiration in the highest Italian culture. This time we entrusted the history of our Literature for representing the new Sonetto Collection. The Sonetto (Sonnet) is the most ancient Italian Poetic structure. Originally it meant ``Sound, Melody``and was traditionally used to accompany music performances. The first step in the Sonus faber world brings the name of the foundations of Literature history in Italy and in the rest of the world.

 

Design

Sonetto VIII is the most powerful 3-way speaker of the Sonetto collection with three 180mm woofers for the best reproduction of lower frequencies and high-end standards. We have designed a speaker that completely represents our roots. The entire collection is a true Sonus faber that features all the iconic elements of the brand: natural sound, natural materials, the Lute shape, the excellent finishes typical of Italian craftsmanship, and manufacturing done completely in our factory in Vicenza.

 

Features

Leather Top

The Sonus Faber Sonetto collection's floorstanding and bookshelf models inherit from the Olympica line the leather top, hand-sewn, soft to the touch and embellished by the hot branded Sonus faber logo.

 

Lute Shape

The lute shape that characterises most of the Sonus faber moels, offers a solution that ensures no internal parallel surfaces and a perfect control over internal resonances

 

Reflex Port

The Sonetto collection's reflex ports are all sited on the base of the speakers, except for the center channels, to keep the design as clean as possible and at the same time make in-room placement very forgiving.

 

Structural Rigidity

Consistent with the most prestigious Sonus Faber models, aluminium has been chosen for the column feet, extruded or milled from solid billets to provide an extreme rigidity.

 

The voice of Sonus Faber

The combination of a silk dome tweeter with the DAD (Damped Apex Dome) technology and a midrange with a special natural fiber and a paper blend air dried diaphragm, defines Sonus Faber's iconic "Voice of Sonus Faber". This configuration that characterised the entire Sonus Faber catelogue, from the Reference to the Olympica collection, is available for the first time in this price range.

Midrange and woofer

These speakers have been designed from scratch specifically for this collection and they feature the die cast basket, done completely in Sonus Faber laboratories

Woofer

For an optimal lowest frequencies reproduction, a special aluminium alloy diaphragm has been designed. It allows an ultra-fast, tight and yet deep bass performance.
