THE STRADIVARI’S VIOLIN
Inspired by the shape of Lilium, Il Cremonese is a tribute to the most famous creation of Antonio Stradivari. Its five non-parallel walls structure and the sides applied on the enclosure requires careful processing techniques, as for a musical instrument: from the wood bending and shaping to the treatments of the precious Avional surfaces.
THE ORETICAL PERFECTION
This is what we have in mind in designing the “acoustic environment” of each single transducer. Each volume is insulated with different materials from open-cell thermoplastic foam to fibrous materials, similar to the felt used in pianos. The most appropriate material or materials are selected for each specific application.
This atypical Sonus faber form represents an evolution towards technological
and visual innovation, simultaneously maintaining the historic milestones
that marked the history of violin making, as well as the history of the Sonus faber brand itself.
RHOMBOIDAL DIAMOND DESIGN
Il Cremonese innovative 5 sides cabinet “Rhomboidal diamond design” which optimizes the structural solidity of the wooden cabinets with a unique diamond shape that is immediately recognizable thanks to clean lines and an elegant, minimal, and sharp design.
The patented “para-aperiodic” interpretation of the tuned load. Besides allowing for a reduction in the dimensions of the cabinet size, it provides a greater extension of the low-frequency response and a dramatic containment of every form of distortion; also eliminating spurious ‘port’ noises, typical of traditional reflex systems. Thus, also, substantially contributing to the correct sound reproduction.
SW 22 XT-08, a powerful 220 mm infra-woofer. To obtain maximum rigidity, the structure of the cone is made of a lightweight “sandwich” cone structure of syntactic foam and cellulose pulp. This is also implemented in an independently tuned enclosure, acoustically ‘amorphous Stealth Reflex™ chamber.
Il Cremonese is mechanically decoupled from the floor through a new and innovative version of the patented system Zero Vibration Transmission™. The new implementation presents coaxial spikes metal / elastomer / metal that, compared to the previous version implemented on alternate surfaces, guarantees a further simplification in the construction and aesthetic lightness.
