AVATON (άβατον, ancient Greek, a place that entrance is allowed only for believers)

Avaton is the new loudspeaker from Tune Audio that will be launched at this year’s High End Show in Munich. It’s a three way, all passive, fully horn loaded loudspeaker.

 

AVATON is the realisation of a five year development project aiming to deliver a no compromise horn loudspeaker for large listening rooms. The design has been taken a long time to achieve but the company believe they have  created a layout pleasing both to the ear and the eye.

Avaton features Tune Audio’s unique virtual mouth technology for bass horn loading, which delivers a flat response down to 32Hz. The bass driver is a super linear 18 inch drive unit, weighing in at a massive 27KGs. The Mid-bass horn has a mouth of 10.000cm2, featuring triple layered construction with damping materials between and finally the throat and beginning of the horn are coated with epoxy/CNT compound for high rigidity. For the high-horn, further development of the cast compound used in Tune’s ANIMA model is utilised and the horn is mounted to an upgraded compression drive unit. 1st order X-over for all 3 ways, internal cabling with waxed cotton insulated pure copper, graphite coating support feet and much more.

As all Tunes models, are offered in custom selected colours or natural wood veneer in virtually any choice and combination.

Drivers: 18” woofer, 5” custom developed and made driver, 1” compression driver.

Sensitivity: 105db

Nominal impedance: 8ohms

AVATON will debut at Munich HiEnd show @ atrium 4.2 room E215
