AVATON (άβατον, ancient Greek, a place that entrance is allowed only for believers)
Just announced, the brand new model Tune Audio Avaton!
- Three way, all passive, fully horn loaded loudspeaker.
- Drivers: 18” woofer, 5” custom developed and made driver, 1” compression driver.
- Sensitivity: 105db
- Nominal impedance: 8ohms
The Tune Audio AVATON is the realisation of a five year development project aiming to deliver a no-compromise horn loudspeaker for large listening rooms. Virtual mouth technology used on bass horn loading delivers a flat response down to 32Hz. Bass driver is a super linear, massive 27kg 18” driver.
Asymmetrical midbass horn has a mouth of 10.000cm2, triple layer build with damping materials between, and, finally throat and beginning of the horn are coated with epoxy/CNT compound for extra stiffness. High, further development of the cast compound used in our ANIMA model with an upgraded driver.
1st order crossovers are used for higher efficiency and purity of signal. Crossovers are located outboard which also allows the crossover parts be well spaced to avoid any kind of interference. Additionally the network is distant from all driver’s magnetic fields. Components are hand selected and hard wired for best contact (no PCB).
All internal wiring are custom made of high purity OFC copper with waxed cotton insulation. Brass bracing parts with felt acoustic isolation are used to minimise energy transfer on contacts of the different horns.
User adjustable mid and hi frequencies level which allows to finetune AVATON to the listening room. Beaming adjustment of the high frequencies horn is also available to match the listening position.
