#1 WHY THIS DARTH VADER STYLED BOWL?
#2 WHY ALUMINIUM BOWL?.
Because of the complex design of the enclosure, the best manufacturing method is casting. The enclosure has primary function: avoid problems with interference and resonance and secondary: to be easy for processing. Most common materials for casting are many types of plastics. They do not have so good acoustical specifications and they are made of petroleum. We decided to use aluminium alloy like the aircraft one, because it has very good acoustical possibilities, it’s easy to be finished and it is not petroleum based.
#3 WHY SUCH SHAPE FOR THE BAFFLE?
To avoid screen effect. When the baffle is flat and glossy another phenomenon may occur: it can act as reflector (in the similar manner as torch reflector for the light). Some frequencies will be enhanced but again out of control. We design very carefully our baffle and test it continuously in the anechoic chamber.
#4 WHAT ARE THE HORNS AT THE BASS PORT AND TWEETER FOR?
The tweeter’s horn is designed for uniform dispersion of the high frequencies, while the bass port is to reduce the turbulence and thus reducing the parasite noise.
#5 WHY SHARP FEET?
To avoid any possibility to transmit vibrations to the surface the loudspeaker is put on.
6# WHAT TO DO WITH THE POTENTIOMETER OF THE BACK?
It controls the sensitivity of the tweeter without to affect any parameter of the cross-
#7 WHY HANDLE?
You will love your loudspeaker and you will want to take it with you. Take it in the safest way.
