άβατον, ancient Greek, a place that entrance is allowed only for believers
Three way, all passive, fully horn loaded loudspeaker.
AVATON is the realization of a five year development project aiming to deliver a no compromise horn loudspeaker for large listening rooms. Long worked the design to create a layout pleasing both the ear and the eye.
Used our virtual mouth technology on bass horn loading which delivers a flat response down to 32Hz. Bass driver is a super linear, massive 27KGs 18”er.
Asymmetrical midbass horn has a mouth of 10.000cm2, triple layer build with damping materials between, and, finally throat and beginning of the horn are coated with epoxy/CNT compound for extra stiffness.
High, further development of the cast compound used in our ANIMA model with an upgraded driver.
1st order networks used in all ways. Crossovers are located outboard which also allows the crossover parts be well spaced to avoid any kind of interference. Additionally the network is distant from all driver’s magnetic fields. Components are hand selected and hard wired for best contact (no PCB).
All internal wiring are custom made of high purity OFC copper with waxed cotton insulation. Brass bracing parts with felt acoustic isolation are used to minimize energy transfer on contacts of the different horns.
User adjustable mid and hi frequencies level which allows to finetune AVATON to the listening room. Beaming adjustment of the high frequencies horn is also available to match the listening position.
