INNOVATIVE EVOLUTION

We’ve revisited all of what makes the S7 great, applied what we have learned, and have pushed the state of the art just that much ­further ­forward. We have updated the ­woofers to ­increase linear excursion, lowered inductance and increased low frequency capability. The DPC-Array, while maintaining the existing drive units and pattern control, we’ve coupled all 3 transducers to a massive aluminum heatsink that takes power handling and reduced thermal compression to all new levels. Even the crossover has been ­up­dated. Now all of the components are hand sorted to 1% tolerances. Final part values and pair matching to 0.5dB will be performed at our USA head­quarters by our CEO, Dan Roemer. Each speaker will be ­measured ­using our Klippel nearfield scanner. The measurement data of each unit will be provided to the proud owner. The final step will be signing, ­certifying, and serializing each speaker. Truly a work of art like none other.

TEXTREME


The (TPCD) TexTreme carbon fiber used in our midrange drive units is also the key to the performance
of our woofers, resulting in lighter than-air dynamics and the impact you expect in a flagship Speaker that can play down to 20Hz in-room.
This technology is 30% lighter than standard carbon fiber of the same thickness, with increased strength
from using the unique process of stacking multiple layers. The unique weave is unmistakable and distributes break-up modes without sharp response peaks, while extending bandwidth. Simply perfect.

CNC MILLED DPC

For the S7t-Limited, we’ve taken the technology to another level by manufacturing the array using Aluminum 6061-T6 alloy. Starting with a 40mm thick billet, the array is milled using a 5-axis CNC. Each part is precisely cut to 0.1mm tolerances, heat treated and then ultimately anodized to the final cosmetic. The real benefit is not just cosmetic and mechanical. Here, the aluminum DPC doubles as a massive thermal heatsink for all three dome tweeters in the array conjoining the existing aluminum heatsinks that each tweeter assembly already employs. Unique to the S7t Limited, they are now thermally coupled to the aluminum DPC. This not only increases power handling and reduces thermal compression of the individual units, but also maintains the same temperature across all drive units. This ensures the complete DPC array tracks as a single unit, effectively avoiding thermal runaway of any one tweeter or any non-linear compression from one unit to the next. This technique is often applied in audio amplifier design, this is a first for multiple loudspeaker transducers.

IMPROVED WOOFER


With accurate transient response, low distortion, and excellent low frequency extension. Is it possible to improve upon this? Drawing on the existing Textreme thin ply carbon diaphragm (TPCD) and suspension components, we set out to improve low frequency capability and thermal management. The re-designed voice coil and magnetic circuit now enable 20% more linear excursion, yet further reduced the overall inductance. This was achieved by utilizing a secondary shorting ring and re-designed voice coil windings. The secondary shorting ring doubles as a large heatsink inside the motor structure, coupled to the external copper heatsink using a unique mounting system of aluminum fasteners. The external heatsink is floated above the rear of the t-yoke assembly allowing for convection cooling of the voice coil and heatsinks as the air flow created by the voice coil’s excursion quietly flows past. All of these refinements yield improvements in all key performance categories: Linear excursion, distortion, thermal compression, transient performance, and midrange clarity.

ISOACOUSTICS
ISOLATION

Working with the Engineers at IsoAcoustics, leveraged from their patented technology, we have developed a custom PERLISTEN™ isolation/damping system only available on the S7t-Limited. This provides a high degree of isolation while resisting lateral movement and oscillations to maintain alignment with the listening position. Internal reflections from the hard-supporting surface are attenuated resulting in greater sound clarity and openness. Furthermore, the massive 18 kg machined steel base keeps the speaker cabinet grounded.

UPDATED
CABINET WITH
CARBON FIBER

Initially intended for its stunning beauty and increased stiffness, the radiused panels also create a moderate 8% increase in cabinet volume without increasing the speaker’s footprint. The increased volume allows for full advantage to be taken of newly designed woofer’s excursion capabilities.

RE-DESIGNED
CROSSOVER

In order to take the S7t-Limited to new heights of performance we’ve not only revised the crossover design for the new cabinet and woofer, but for the Limited Edition we now are sorting all components to 1% tolerances. Furthermore, for the limited edition, each speaker pair and crossover are hand matched to within 0.5dB at our USA Research and Development headquarters located in Madison, WI. Here at our headquarters, we will perform Klippel nearfield scans of each speaker, pair match, certify and provide each customer with spinorama measurements of their actual speakers.

ENGINEERED &
PERCEPTUALIZED
IN USA

Here we have the ability to perform a full battery of measurements. And for a very limited and exclusive run of S7t’s, we will provide these measurements to the owner certifying the results. Each speaker will be individually signed and serialized by our CEO, Dan Roemer.
