In a perfect world the only parts of a loudspeaker you’d hear would be the energy generated by the drive units. But we don’t live in a perfect world and conventional loudspeakers face a constant battle to eliminate the sound of their cabinets, contained air mass and crossovers from the musical equation. Most enclosures rely on damping to prevent resonance and standing waves, but they tend to simply slow and spread the unwanted energy, blurring detail and limiting dynamics. The Arabesque cabinet shape was developed specifically to minimize these problems, using advanced Comsol mechanical and gas dynamic modeling software. The non-symmetrical shape eliminates parallel walls and common dimensions, resulting in natural resonant decay without resorting to damping materials.
Adopting a one-piece cabinet construction, milled from a solid block of resin/metal matrix material is itself a costly process, but dramatically reduces the time necessary for assembly. At the same time, it not only finally reveals the true beauty of the Arabesque shape, but also allows us to further optimize cabinet performance with its progressive curves and total control over cabinet wall thickness.
