3-way Floorstanding speaker
XT-7 is the new full-range, 3-way speaker with anti-turbulence bass reflex and ribbon tweeter. The unique XT curved design is based on a reinforced chassis in wooden multilayer panels to control resonances
and sound, a design where every single element is crucial and serve the sole purpose of achieving the best sound possible.
XT-7 offers state-of-the-art solutions for a sound without compromises: a high-quality crossover with Mundorf and Clarity components and SEAS drivers in ultra-stiff woven polypropylene. The cabinets are conveniently separated for bass and mid/highs to enhance perfect tuning: the bass driver cabinet side is vented while the mid/highs are perfectly sealed to reduce internal reflections. The massive swallow-tailed stand features adjustable spikes and guarantees perfect stability while completing the structure to enhance performances, the hidden spikes can be adjusted to find always the right balance.
TWEETER: The first GoldNote loudspeaker to feature a ribbon tweeter, this AMT ultra-linear unit is enhanced with a metal dampened rear chamber. With a new custom cooling coil radiator designed for resonance reduction and to increase extension linearity.
CROSSOVER: For XT-7 we developed a deluxe crossover with state-of-the-art components provided by Mundorf and Clarity: the passive Crossover Low-High Dual-Slop cuts at 280Hz & 3000Hz and features a resistive design to enable ultra-linear load that support the work of the amplifiers minimizing the stress on power supplies even at a nominal impedance of 4Ω. Anti-resonance glass-fibre boards with a sophisticated triple crossover network and a summing midrange multi-slope design perfectly integrate the drivers of the array for a fulfilling close field audio experience. This high-quality crossover is completed with handmade air winding coils.
MIDRANGE: A 150mm ultra-linear recessed driver developed with SEAS and enhanced with a proprietary metal chassis. The unique curved cone in ultra-hardened woven polypropylene allows an excellent internal damping factor while the moving parts are perfectly matched together for smooth and extended frequency response. A special radial reinforced low loss rubber surround reduces radial resonances
and prevents surround break up at large excursions. The custom copper phaser reduces compression due to temperature variations in the voice coil, avoiding the resonance that would occur between the dust cap and the pole piece while also increasing the long-term power handling capacity. The heavy copper ring around the coil drastically reduces distortion and inter-modulation. The basket, obtained by MIM
(metal injection moulding) to achieve extreme stiffness and stability, keeps all the components in perfect alignment. Large windows above and below the basket’s spider are designed to reduce sound reflection, air flow noise and cavity resonance to the minimum.
WOOFER: Using the same principles applied to Midranges, we developed with SEAS two 180mm ultra-linear recessed drivers developed. The driver is powered by our unique curved cone in ultra-hardened woven polypropylene to achieve great internal damping and perfect control over the moving parts, that are always perfectly matched to deliver a fantastic frequency response. To allow extreme coil excursion with low distortion, the magnet system features a bumped back plate with long and lightweight copper clad aluminum voice coils. The heavy copper ring below the T-shaped pole piece reduces non-linear and modulation distortion. Bullet shaped phase plugs reduce compression due to temperature variations in the voice coils, preventing any resonance problem that could occur and also increasing the long-term power handling capacity. The basket obtained with MIM and the basket’s spider design is developed to preserve structural alignment for maximum stiffness and also to reduce unwanted noises from air flows, resonance and sound reflection.
