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.
The Acoustic Doublet proprietary system developed for the Academy Sovran allows even small-scale systems to accurately convey sound and space. These emissions are determined by the size of the speakers and length of sound wave emitted. Most bookshelf loudspeakers will inadequately produce spatial imaging, since a physical distance of at least 1m is necessary between speakers. This is why the Sovran adopts the Reversed Woofer/Tweeter Alignment, which keeps the woofer as far as possible from the subwoofer and at the same time provides the ideal angle for modeling the energy response around the second crossover region.

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 provided with the speakers

model will be discontinued.
Vibration transmitted from the subwoofer to the structure has two negative effects, the cabinet acts as an additional uncontrolled radiator; and the other speakers oscillate around their point of rest, modulating emission and reducing sound detail. We separate the subwoofer. The cabinet comprises two vertical units, connected by four proprietary form and geometry puffers, effectively uncoupling the two cabinet masses.
