The Floorstanding Speakers Excellence
The key to Egea 3 success comes from the subtle cocktail of experience and innovation. The co-axial technology by Cabasse is a major innovation in the loudspeaker world because its principle is the closest proposal to the theoretical ideal. It results from the 60 years experience Cabasse has in driver developments and from 20 years expertise in the BC13 type of midrange-tweeter.
COAXIAL MIDRANGE TWEETER
Developed from the TC23, the three-way co-axial driver fitted to the top of the range speakers, including the flagships “La Sphère” and “l’Océan”, assembled and controlled in our Breton workshops in Western France, the BC13 guarantees a faithful reproduction of timbres with no artificial coloration or lassitude in long listening, and provides a soundstage with unrivaled realism and depth.
DUOCELL CONE WOOFERS
The 17 cm woofers of Egea 3 are fitted with a Duocell cone designed by Cabasse and manufactured by Cabasse robots. The very light, but rigid and nicely damped membrane has an exponential profile and variable thickness, to obtain the most of long throw systems and powerful magnets. They bring the full precision and vivacity required for high fidelity, true to live, sound.
CROSS-OVERS WITH VARIABLE SLOPES
The Cabasse development protocol combines numerous measurements in an anechoic room, combining on-axis and 360° results. It guarantees a perfect control of both the directivity index and the total radiated power all along the frequency bandwidth to match the SCS principles. It is a key process, together with listening sessions, in the development of the cross-over boards. The slopes can vary from 6 to 24 dB per octave for an optimal acoustical phasing, taking into account the influence of the external shape of the enclosure to optimize the qualities of the co-axial drive-units.
