A NEW WORLD OF SOUND RICH IN PRECISION AND REALISM
Minorca associates energy, clarity and power from deep rich bass to high tones in an ultra-compact space. Whether it be on a shelf or on a stand, the Minorca brings a level of emotion that was once only reserved for large speakers.
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”, the BC10 offers a faithful reproduction of timbres with no artificial coloration or lassitude in long listening, and provides a soundstage with unrivaled realism and depth in this price segment.
DUOCELL CONE WOOFERS
The 17 cm (7”) woofer of Minorca is 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. It brings 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.
