Falcon Acoustics has announced the first of six models in its ‘Complete@Home’ range of loudspeaker systems for home assembly.
Including Falcon drive units, Italian birch ply cabinets and Falcon factory-assembled pre-wired crossovers, the IMF100 can be completed in as little as 30 minutes. No soldering is required, all tools are provided, and the build is supported by a YouTube video.
The IMF 100 is a two-way, 1/8th wave transmission line system, featuring matched pairs of Falcon B110 and T27 drive units (as used by the Falcon LS3/5a), precision CNC-engineered B110 retaining rings, precision-matched Falcon crossovers and full production-grade birch ply cabinets, made in Italy from natural walnut or rosewood veneers. Created in the same factory as the renowned Falcon Acoustics BBC LS3/5a, the IMF100 shares similar voicing to this LS3/5a but with extra bass extension.
The IMF100 system uses parts that are exclusively sourced and manufactured in the UK/EU for the best quality and consistency. Easy home assembly means that owners benefit from a fully specified high-quality Falcon speaker design at less than half the price of any pre-built commercially available counterpart, all for a mere 30 minutes of their time.
