Maxima Amator unveiled by Sonus faber

Italian loudspeaker manufacturer, Sonus faber has introduced the Maxima Amator floorstanding loudspeaker which demonstrates a new two-way design while introducing contemporary speaker technology.

Joining the Minima Amator II and Electa Amator II stand-mounts in the Heritage collection, the Maxima Amator is housed in a solid walnut cabinet designed using modern woodworking methods, exploiting the performance benefits of a solid-wood chassis. The front baffle and rear panel feature a real leather wrap to further enhance the speaker’s appearance.

This latest addition to the Heritage collection uses the same divers as the Electa Amator II – a 28mm D.A.D (Damped Apex Dome) tweeter with Neodymium magnetic motor system and a solid spruce wood acoustic labyrinth rear chamber. It also has a 180mm mid-range unit with an air-dried membrane made of cellulose pulp and natural fibres, mounted on a Sonus faber original design die-cast aluminium basket.

A new IFF Crossover (Interactive Fusion Filtering) technology has been designed for the Maxima Amator. It forgoes a conventional first order design, with non-academic transfer functions based on the company’s accelerated progressive slopes. 

The Maxima Amator is available globally now priced at £14,500.
