Sonus Faber Olympica III Speakers

The Olympica III is a three-way, four-driver design with a beautifully finished cabinet whose curved sides form, as in the Aida, a lyre-shaped cross section. The Olympica III’s main cabinet measures 42.5”H x 10.5”W x 16.5”D; but on its base with metal outriggers (this comes already attached), and with the chromed floor spikes screwed in, the overall dimensions are 43.5”H x 15.7”W x 19.8”D. The speaker is big enough to look substantial, but not so big that it overpowers a room. It’s sized just right.

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.

WOOFERS
Sonus faber wooferS W18XTR  are direct descendants of the 9” speakers used in “Aida”. The salient aspect of the woofers, 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
35 Hz – 30.000 Hz, tuning port included.
