World Premiere: Linear Drive Magnet System
The new innovative in-house developed Linear Drive Magnet System eliminates four distortion factors in the driver motor system. The individual parts of the magnet system close to the voice coil consist of advanced soft magnetic compound (SMC), which eliminates variation of flux strength in the magnet gap.
The SMC material features linear magnetic properties throughout the frequency range and eliminates phase variation in the force generated within the motor system. Aluminum rings around the pole piece reduce and stabilize voice coil inductance, independent of excursion. This allows optimum conversion of voltage generated by the amplifier to current flowing through the voice coil.
Meticulous attention to CNC milling of the front baffle creates more space between the 7 screws, ensuring a free airflow behind the woofers. A detail supporting our low-loss design as well as our focus on timing. Each side of the EPICON 6 is constructed from 6 individual layers of MDF, all glued together, which eliminate standing waves, enhancing detail and clarity. In the EPICON 6 these are anchored to the 53 mm multi-layer MDF backbone of the cabinet.
Working both as an acoustic tuned ‘spring’ for the drivers, as well as getting rid of reaction force (resonant) energy, the cabinet is an important part of the entire speaker system.
With a thickness of 33 mm the duallayer front baffle ensures that energy from the drivers is radiated as acoustic energy, and not as vibrations in the cabinet. The curved shape of the front baffle is also a contributing factor in ensuring a stable acoustic platform. Internally the cabinet for the EPICON 6 is divided in two identical sized chambers, allowing tuning of the cabinet to be done identically yet completely independently for each of the two woofers. Thus you will find two bass ports on the back of the cabinet located as nearby the woofers as possible. Both ports are convex tapered in both ends to minimize port turbulence.
At the very bottom of the cabinet, however, you will see that the hardwired crossover is mounted in its own enclosure as well – free from the dynamic variation of cabinet pressure inside the bass reflex enclosures. Sit back and enjoy impeccable high frequencies and voice reproductions so lifelike that you will feel in the middle of a live performance.
