ACADEMY SOVRAN

3 way Floorstanding

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.

Five Degrees Vertical Tilting

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.

LIMITLESS PERFORMANCE

/

The first three-way loudspeaker system able to control energy diffusion at low frequencies, using Chario Loudspeakers proprietary Doublet Radiation principle.Doublet Radiation underpins the theoretical foundations for a different approach towards sound challenges in small environments. Natural wood changes shape depending on ambient temperature and relative humidity. In other words, it adapts to climate conditions, generating tensions inside its fibers, which modify the macroscopic layout. This fact is well-known to master cabinet-makers, who employ adaptive techniques when assembling parts of any prized solid wood cabinet.Firstly, the right board has to be chosen and cut with precision to avoid creating isolated and incompatible sections. Secondly, the drying process and storage conditions are defined for the rough wood. Lastly, the sections are assembled in a precise order, to allow the moisture-absorbing capacity of each element to develop over time, eventually settling to achieve optimal sturdiness.The rest is time-honoured Italian craftsmanship at its finest.

Subwoofer Secrets

PushPull & Hourglass duct perform the best.

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.
