Sonus Faber Olympica Nova III
The lack of flat and parallel walls improves enclosure performance and maintains the typical asymmetrical Lute shape of first generation Olympica.
The Olympica Nova III’s 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.
The natural leather embellishes the Voice of Sonus faber, the brand’s iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange and enriches the aesthetic rings around the woofers. Genuine Italian leather that, as per our brand’s tradition, is applied by hand in the production department in Vicenza.
The 28 mm silk soft dome tweeter features the DAD™ technology (Damped Apex Dome™) that enhances the smoothness and extension in the high frequency by applying local dampening to the apex typically responsible for anti-phase behavior of soft dome diaphragms. The DAD™ structure has been totally redesigned; a solid piece of aluminum die-cast includes both arch and ring on the dome to increase the strength and accuracy of the system.
The midrange is completely designed and developed in Sonus faber laboratories. Its cone is realized cooperating with Kurtmueller and represents the most advanced stage of the traditional Sonus faber recipe: an air dried non pressed blend of cellulose pulp and other natural fibers: kapok and kenaf. This natural drying process gives the diaphragm a slightly rough surface of varying density and contributes damping and distributing cone resonances while guaranteeing a natural sound, increased transparency and details. The precious phase-plug enhances the mid-hi frequencies emission while proudly stating that the Olympica Nova collection is “Made in Italy.
The woofer cone has been developed in cooperation with Kurtmueller and it’s based on an exclusive sandwich construction technique: two external layers of cellulose pulp are combined with a layer of hi-tech syntactic foam in between. This low mass and hi rigidity cone construction allows for a perfect reproduction of the low frequencies while guaranteeing absolute tonal coherence with the midrange. This transducer is assembled in Italy.
The solid piece of extruded aluminum that complete the Stealth Ultraflex™ system, an extremely low-turbulence porting system, is inherited from Homage Tradition models. Favoring the profile of sea waves, the structure facilitates airflow through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing the distortion-causing turbulence.
