New from Cabasse is the Murano Alto column speaker, that offers the benefits of co-axial drive unit technology in a compact slim-line enclosure.

Murano Alto uses technology trickled down from the Cabasse flagship products, such as the midrange-tweeter coaxial driver from the Cabasse system, l’Océan, and two new designs of honeycomb membrane woofers, developed from La Sphère.

The heart of the tri-axial driver from the high-end L’Océan speaker, the BC13 is fitted to Murano Alto and specially engineered for the Murano Alto, today’s BC13 has a new aluminium wave broadcast system designed to optimise integrations with Murano’s woofer.

The new 17ND36 woofer drivers were specially designed for the Murano speakers. Cabasse engineers miniaturised the same concept from La Sphère’s 55cm woofer driver. The concave membrane with a honeycomb structure provides extra rigidity, as well as cushioned movement. Guided by an extra-long voice coil in the 45mm air gap of the powerful motor, weighing in at 4kg, this membrane helps Murano Alto have a quality of bass not normally associated with speakers at this price.

Three long, curved and flared, down-firing port tubes supply a boost to low frequencies. The user option to seal one port of each speaker provides the user with a choice to configure either the maximum amount of bass or the best extension for extremely deep bass, to suit the room acoustics and musical taste.

The 102cm tall, 27cm wide and 37cm deep Murano Alto has a frequency response of 32Hz – 24kHz and is capable of handling 175 watts of RMS power and 1200 watts peak. It is available in Glossy White, Glossy Black or Glossy Mahogany finishes and has a UK MSRP of £8,000 per pair.
