Academy Serendipity

5 way Floorstanding

The flagship of the Academy Series is the grand culmination of the extensive research and development undertaken by Chario Loudspeakers since was founded in 1975. Here are some of the concepts, structures, and principles that have brought us worldwide acclaim: NRS 2π sr / Hyper Exponential Hourglass / Reversed Vertical Array / Silversoft Dome / Rohacell® / Full Apex™ / Polyring / Neodymium / Overlapping Points / WMT™ Alignment / SoundCap®

CREATION NUMBER

Crafting a Serendipity requires many skills and hours of handcrafting.

Canaletto’s wood is very high required because of its aesthetic qualities, it’s considered a precious wood, because of its physical characteristics, such as elasticity and durability, it makes it a wood suitable for the creation of classic and modern furniture, as well as for the construction of tailor-made pianos.

Suggested Amplifiers in Normal Amping 400 W / 4Ω

Run the cable from the power amplifier to the lower terminals of the
subwoofer binding post, then connect upper terminals to the mid-high unit
binding post by means of the short cable with banana plug provided with the
speakers.

/

Suggested Amplifiers in Bi Amping 200 W / 4Ω

Run the cable from the power amplifier to the lower terminals of the
subwoofer binding post leaving upper ones idle. Repeat to connect the power
amplifier to the mid-high unit binding post (two terminals only)

Spare Parts Availability

All the spare parts will be available for 15 years after the
model will be discontinued.


 

HOURGLASS DUCT

The pressure that pushes the air inside the reflex duct is extremely high. Consider the analogy of hydraulic lines that push water upward. As the high increase loses fluid pressure, the jets lose speed and weaken. Hence the goal must be to retain the optimal pressure within the reflex duct to ensure a consistent strength in the acoustic wave, while avoiding the audible noise when pressure speeds over 130km/h. The photograph aside demonstrates the reflex duct section with the Hourglass hyper-exponential, in a Serendipity.
