Inspired by the shape of Lilium, Il Cremonese is a tribute to the most famous creation of Antonio Stradivari. Its five non-parallel walls structure and the sides applied on the enclosure, requires a careful processing techniques, as for a musical instrument: from the wood bending and shaping, to the treatments of the precious Avional surfaces.
This atypical Sonus faber form represents an evolution towards technological
and visual innovation, simultaneously maintaining the historic milestones
that marked the history of violin making, as well as the history of the Sonus faber brand itself.
Stealth reflex tuning:
Besides allowing for a reduction in the dimensions of the cabinet size, the Stealth reflex port provides greater extension of the low frequency response and a dramatic containment of every form of distortion; also eliminating spurious ‘port’ noises, typical of traditional reflex systems. Thus, also, substantially contributing to the correct sound reproduction.
Il Cremonese is complete with a powerful 220 mm infra-woofer. To obtain maximum rigidity, the structure of the cone is made of a lightweight “sandwich” cone structure of syntactic foam and cellulose pulp. This is also implemented in an independent tuned enclosure, acoustically ‘amorphous Stealth Reflex™ chamber.
