The much anticipated, largest and most advanced of Magico’s A Series, the A5, incorporates the company’s first 5-inch pure midrange driver as well as enhanced midrange and bass driver cone technology.

These new cones achieve what Magico says is an “unprecedented stiffness-to-weight ratio”, a key parameter that Magico has pursued over the past 15 years.

Mundorf’s New M-Resist Ultra Foil Resistors

In addition, the crossover debuts Mundorf’s new M-Resist Ultra foil resistors. “The A Series has been a great success in reaching a wider audience,” said Magico’s founder, Alon Wolf. “The A5 builds on that success with a new 5-inch midrange of extraordinary musicality. And the A5 ‘plays larger,’ with powerfully extended dynamic range.”

The three-way, five driver floor standing speaker retains such Magico hallmarks as extensively cross-braced 6061 aircraft grade aluminum and Elliptical Symmetry Crossover.

Elliptical Symmetry Crossover

Magico acoustically integrates all five drivers with the proprietary Elliptical Symmetry Crossover topology built with components from Mundorf of Cologne, Germany. The A5 will be the first product in the world to offer Mundorf’s new M-Resist Ultra foil resistors. The 3-way network features a 24 dB per octave Linkwitz-Riley filter.

New Bass Drivers

The 9” bass drivers of the A5 feature a newly enhanced version of Magico’s Graphene Nano-Tec cones. Graphene, a hexagonal lattice of carbon, achieves 50 times the tensile strength of high-carbon steel. The new cone design combines Graphene layered carbon fiber with advanced new core materials to achieve the highest possible stiffness to weight ratio. Thanks to extensive computer simulation and prototype tests, the driver chassis achieves an ideal combination of stiffness and damping, minimizing acoustical contribution and maximizing airflow. The new bass unit incorporates oversized components including a 5-inch pure Titanium voice coil and huge copper cap with ½” of linear excursion. The super-stabilized magnetic field enables the A5 to produce 115 dB SPL (@ 50 Hz, 1 meter), while maintaining low distortion and inductance below 0.18 mH.

New Five-Inch Pure Midrange Driver

Like the bass driver, the midrange also incorporates an advanced Graphene carbon fiber sandwich cone. A new foam surround helps achieve ideal cone/surround integration, faster settling time and low distortion. The all-new motor system uses a pure Titanium voice coil. The super stabilised magnetic field and pure copper pole cap minimise eddy currents and maximise efficiency.

High Frequency Driver

Based on the fundamental design platform and geometry of the M-Series tweeters and shared with the other members of the A-Series, the tweeter incorporates a pure beryllium-diaphragm with an optimised 28-mm dome. Magico encases the customised neodymium motor system in an engineered back chamber with the company’s most advanced damping materials.

Aircraft-Grade Aluminum Enclosure

Weighing in at 180 pounds each, the A5 features a massive, sealed enclosure machined entirely of 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum, the same material and construction methods as in Magico’s Q-Series.

Complex internal bracing helps stiffen the entire enclosure and minimise resonance. A dedicated sub-enclosure houses the midrange driver, protecting it from the extensive back wave energy of the bass drivers. The aluminum has a brushed black anodised finish.
