AudioSolutions has added Figaro XL2 to its portfolio, an evolution of model XL – released more than six years ago.
The new XL2 is a heavily upgraded three-way speaker with advanced technologies taken from more expensive speaker lines in AudioSolutions portfolio.
The Figaro contains upgraded mini-horn loading tweeter and ER paper cones in its MID and BASS drivers. The mid-driver works in an extended band (crossover points 400-4000 Hz), avoiding crossover points in the region that is most sensitive for humans where slight phase shifts or delays can be detected by the ear, thus improving listening experience.
According to designer, Gediminas Gaidelis, the result “helps with crossover distortion perception and the listener gets uniform, unchopped sound coming from one driver with virtually zero phase shifts”.
Its cabinet system was taken directly from upper class Virtuoso speakers. This cabinet assembly technique is also used in flagship model, The Vantage.
The company founder comments, “the cab-in-a-cab system eliminates virtually all vibrations by cleverly using light and a stiff inner box with an inert and heavy otterbox separated by a polyurethane damping layer”.
The Figaro is available in seven different colours in Bespoke Trim, offering brass metal accents as well as modern matt colouring of the speaker.
The new Figaro is designed by company founder Gediminas and, as with all AudioSolutions speakers, is manufactured in Lithuania.
The speakers are being offered in Bespoke trim, however standard glossy trims without metal accents are coming soon.
These are priced per pair at 20000-25000 Euros.
