The F501SP launches today as Fyne Audio’s second Special Production designated loudspeaker, following hot on the speaker terminals of the F502SP launched earlier this year.

SP models distil some of the best components and engineering from across Fyne Audio ranges into a unique loudspeaker, personally tuned by Technical Director, Dr Paul Mills and handcrafted in the UK. The concept allows audiophiles to benefit from Fyne’s high-end technology without the expense of the complex cabinet geometry found on higher-end models.

More Affordable

The F501SP brings much of the driver, crossover and bass tuning expertise from the F700 Series into the more compact and affordable F501 cabinet design. The result is a unique, special production loudspeaker, designed and manufactured in the UK. The floorstander builds on the original and F501, upgrading everything from the drivers to the finish options with only the core cabinet architecture remaining.

Premium IsoFlare Point Source Driver

At its heart is a 150mm (6”) IsoFlare driver using the technology and engineering developed for the premium F701 IsoFlare unit. This driver features a multi-fibre bass/mid cone terminated with FyneFlute roll surround and a 25mm magnesium dome compression tweeter with unique waveguide set at its centre. The result is a point source driver with true Isotropic radiation.

To deliver floorstanding scale musical reproduction, the F501SP adds a 150mm (6”) auxiliary LF bass driver to extend the lowest LF output of the IsoFlare unit. Its 91dB/Watt efficiency ensures compatibility with the lowest power tube based amplifiers. At the same time, its peak 180W handling will allow it to comfortably achieve real live music SPLs with solid state electronics.

BassTrax Port

The standard F501 deploys Fyne’s twin chamber bass porting system with down firing BassTrax port in the lower chamber, and a single layer MDF plinth. However the F501SP uses a bespoke F700 Series style aluminium twin layer sandwich plinth and machined aluminium hardware, including spacer, spikes and knurled locking nuts. The spikes are top adjustable, using Fyne’s signature alloy tool supplied, to ease the process of stabilising the cabinet in position.

Crossover

Merging the F700 Series technology into the F501SP cabinet required a new bespoke crossover with many of the F700 Series components used in the design. This included premium ClarityCap capacitors and low-loss laminated core inductors.

Finishes

To celebrate this unique UK built loudspeaker, the SP is available in high gloss black and high gloss white as standard, or in a new, deep gloss lacquered walnut veneer previously seen on the premium F700 Series.

All F501SP finishes feature a diamond-cut finish on an exposed aluminium driver chassis. The cabinet retains the innovative front and rear magnetic grille mounts, allowing owners to store the grilles for critical listening.
