Amati Passive speakers

Amati Passive speakers

For decades little has changed in speaker cabinet design and the materials to construct them. Virtually all speaker cabinets to date are made of wood, a composite of many cell types and molecular structures: These resonate mainly between 50 and 400hz exactly in the working area of all low frequency drivers where the pressure is highest. This unavoidably causes cabinet resonance and distortion. That, plus the obvious difficulty of shaping a complex form from wood, inspired us to seek a novel solution for optimum performance. After extensive research and noting the imperfect characteristics of wood the Amati Engineering developed a resonance free composite material. This combined with our moulding technique provides the perfect resonance free and acoustically correct result.Inspired by creatures of nature we opted for the “snail-shape” housing, a perfect structure that deals with the involvement of sound waves at different frequencies. In the snail design, no one side is exactly parallel to another, changing shape all the time. This makes the structure extremely strong, resonance free and avoids standing waves unlike any other man-made shape or construction. A huge internal volume of 100-litres is essential to reproduce frequencies down to 28Hz whilst keeping the design elegant. The cabinet’s base and front rings are CNC machined out of “first grade” solid aluminum blocks, resulting in a very strong, elegant and modern look with no externally visible screws. ALL capacitors utilized in the crossover filters are Silver Z-Cap and Silver gold Z-cap and all wiring is 99.99% pure silver wire
