ESSENCE OF A BRAND

Since 1983, many moments have marked the history of Sonus faber; the launch of the Olympica Collection 6 years ago is one of them. One of the first lines presented as a complete family of products, but above all, the very first one to feature original drivers, entirely designed in Sonus faber. Olympica Nova is the second generation of the iconic family of 2013, improved in its form and substance, imbued with the timeless values that inspired us in creating the original line. The result is a new Collection that embraces the most advanced technologies that already enhance our most prestigious creations.

ORGANIC SHAPE

The lack of flat and parallel walls improves enclosure performance and maintains the typical asymmetrical Lute shape of first generation Olympica. The asymmetrical shape of the cabinet is an original design concept that allows versatile positioning of the speakers to tune the bass response in any room. Inspired by nature, the lines follow the flow of a circular spiral motion, achieving a more organic cabinet structure. No longer just a functional element added to handle airflow, the reflex duct is now fully integrated into the cabinet, further improving the speed and transparency of sound.

FEATURES

A concentration of power and quality that allows complete enjoyment of our natural sound, with no compromise. The flagship of the collection is not just a speaker, it’s a piece of interior design. No frills, Olympica Nova V will fill your room with a warm and engaging sound.

WOOD

Just like the cabinet sides, the front baffle and the top are made in the walnut or wengè hand-finished natural wood, set in a solid die-cast aluminum plate. Our designers wished to pay homage to the most representative material of Sonus faber, making it even more of a standard-bearer.

CROSSOVER

The crossover network implements Paracross Topology™, making the crossover less sensitive to radio-frequency interference, improving transient response and lowering noise floor. The filtering topology features new exclusive Clarity Cap capacitors, customized for Sonus faber.

SUPPORTS

We have completely redesigned the supports, crafting them from solid aluminum bottom plates with steel spikes, taking inspiration from the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, to guarantee greater strength and solidity.

REFLEX PORT

The solid piece of extruded aluminum that complete the Stealth Ultraflex™ system, an extremely low-turbulence porting system, is inherited from Homage Tradition models. Favoring the profile of sea waves, the structure facilitates airflow through the duct while controlling its speed and reducing the distortion-causing turbulence.

NATURAL LEATHER

The natural leather embellishes the Voice of Sonus faber, the brand’s iconic configuration of tweeter and midrange and enriches the aesthetic rings around the woofers. Genuine Italian leather that, as per our brand’s tradition, is applied by hand in the production department in Vicenza.

TWEETER

The 28 mm silk soft dome tweeter features the DAD™ technology (Damped Apex Dome™) that enhances the smoothness and extension in the high frequency by applying local dampening to the apex typically responsible for anti-phase behavior of soft dome diaphragms. The DAD™ structure has been totally redesigned; a solid piece of aluminum die-cast includes both arch and ring on the dome to increase the strength and accuracy of the system.

MIDRANGE

The midrange has been designed and built completely in Sonus faber laboratories. The cone is comprised of an air-dried, non-pressed blend of cellulose pulp, Kapok, Kenaf, and other natural fibers. This natural treatment gives the cone a slightly rough surface of varying density, which reduces cone resonance, guaranteeing a natural sound with increased transparency and greater detail.

MADE IN ITALY WOOFER

The woofer cone is made in Italy and benefits from an exclusive sandwich construction technique: two sheets of cellulose pulp are combined with a hi-tech syntactic foam in between them. This low-mass, high-rigidity structure provides fast and powerful sound reproduction while allowing total coherence with the mid-high units.

STRUCTURAL RIGIDITY

Similar to the Homage Tradition and Reference Collections, the walls are made with eight layers of bended wood, providing the cabinet with extreme rigidity. Inside the cabinet, carefully placed structural ribs are used as reinforcement to reduce vibration and to handle the overall power of the transducers movement.
