The new Magico S7 is a full-range, three-way, floorstanding loudspeaker that features all-new drivers derived from the M Project loudspeaker. The acoustic-suspension enclosure of the S7 features curved-aluminum side panels that are machined in-house from half-inch-thick aluminum extrusions 16" in diameter. Internal bracing minimizes resonances.
According to the company's April 6 press release, the S7's 10" bass drivers have "extremely powerful magnets and ultra-stiff aluminum cones, which are capable of producing deep, powerful bass frequencies with speed and accuracy." This woofer is said to be capable of undistorted sound-pressure levels up to 120dB at 50Hz/1m.
The 6" midrange driver is formulated using "Arkema Multi-Wall carbon nanotubes and XG Sciences C-750 Nanographene, which [when] combined is 20% lighter and 300% stiffer than previous cone-material designs. The driver operates in a purpose-built sub-enclosure made of a proprietary polymer material that was first introduced in the S3."
The S7's 1" tweeter features a diamond-coated beryllium diaphragm with "optimized geometry, created using state-of-the-art Finite Element analysis modeling tools. This purpose-built tweeter has extra-long-excursion movement and uses a neodymium-based motor system that is customized to match the sensitivity and power handling capabilities of the S7 while maintaining ultra-wide-dispersion characteristics and ultra-low-distortion measurements."
All five drivers in the S7 are acoustically integrated using Magico’s exclusive Elliptical Symmetry Crossover topology that includes state-of-the-art components from Mundorf of Germany.
The S7 weighs 300 pounds and is priced at $58,000.00 USD per pair. Availability is said to be July of 2015.
