Sonus faber’s Olympica speakers were designed to be easily driven by the amplifier, and just as easy to integrate into the listening environment.
A series of design solutions was implemented (for example: high structural rigidity, the asymmetric cabinet shape, and the angle of the speaker for perfectly positioning the drivers) that makes speaker interaction with the environment less problematic and ensure immediate satisfaction in listening without requiring special attention and ability.
Fantastic condition pair of trade-in Sonus Faber Olympica III loudspeakers in Wenge finish.
Speakers come in original boxes with grills and printed (not original) owner's manual.
Speakers are rated 8/10 for minor cosmetic wear consistent with age and use, including some wear and small blemishes in the leather on the top of the speakers (see photos).
This model has been recently discontinued by Sonus faber.
Tweeter: Sonus faber “Arrow Point” DAD (Damped Apex Dome), synthesis of the classic dome and ring Transducer 29XTR2. A Sonus faber designed 1.1” (29mm) moving coil driver. The ultra dynamic linearity is given by the new Neodymium motor system.
Midrange: Sonus faber M15XTR. A totally Sonus faber designed 6” (150mm) ultra dynamic linearity mid-woofer. 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 are used, designed to remove cavity resonance and distortions.
Woofers: Sonus faber woofer W18XTR is a direct descendant of the 8.75” (220mm) speaker used in “Aida”. Dual low-frequency drive units are used in the Olympica III. The lightweight “sandwich cones are made from a blend of a synthetic foam membrane and coated with cellulose pulp are voiced to blend with the midrange drive unit and exhibit its same sonic characteristics. The result is absolute definition and coherency in the critical mid frequency range. A long-throw motor system with a 1.5" diameter controlled "eddy current" voice coil is implemented for high speed, dynamic performance and linearity.
Crossover: Non-resonant “progressive slope” design, optimized amplitude/phase response for optimal space/time performance. “Paracross topology” on both the tweeter hi-pass and midrange band-pass. Crossover points are 250Hz - 2.5kHz.
