CONSTELLATION CYGNUS

Floorstanding 130mm Woofers

This floor -standing speaker features a 3-way configuration. The T38 tweeter and a 130mm driver placed on the front of the speaker, while another 130mm driver is placed at the bottom as a subwoofer. This configuration allows the Cygnus an extension up to 50 Hz and a higher dynamic capacity. This is the result of the subwoofer placement in the lower part, reducing the workload of the front driver(s). The result is a significant increase in articulation and detail , and consequently a reduction in listening fatigue.

The emission angle of the tweeter is 60°, while the subwoofer driver is omnidirectional (360°). The angle of emission of the woofer placed on the front at 170 Hz , which is the point of intersection with the subwoofer, preserves the omni directionality, decreasing in proportion to the intersection with the tweeter.

NEAR REFLECTIVE SURFACE

The principle NRS exploits the proximity of the supporting surface and the structure of the speaker to increase the performance of the subwoofer . The frequencies emitted by the subwoofer using this principle lower distortion, since double efficiency is attained by halving the displacement of its membrane. The system applied to the Cygnus model is devoted entirely to reproduce frequencies between 50 and 170 Hz. As a result, NRS achieves double sound pressure (gain of 3dB) for the same distortion.
