Italian loudspeaker manufacturer, Sonus faber, has launched the Maxima Amator, a new two-way design that echoes many of the classic Sonus faber two-ways of the past, yet introduces contemporary speaker technology.

The Maxima Amator floor-stander benefits from a solid walnut cabinet which has been designed using modern woodworking methods, to exploit the performance benefits of a solid-wood chassis. The rich walnut is enhanced further by a real leather wrap on both the front baffle and rear panel.

Made In Italy

Entirely made in Italy, Sonus faber’s engineers have gone to great lengths to accurately define the Maxima Amator’s internal cabinet volume, which has been divided into three separate chambers to increase rigidity, minimise resonance and shield the crossover, which is further protected by a dedicated chamber, visible from the back of the cabinet.

The new Maxima Amator is the latest addition to the Heritage collection, which contains the Minima Amator II and Electa Amator II stand-mounts. The speaker uses the same drivers as the Electa Amator II: a 28 mm D.A.D. (Damped Apex Dome) tweeter with Neodymium magnetic motor system and a solid spruce wood acoustic labyrinth rear chamber, plus a 180 mm mid-range unit with an air-dried membrane made of cellulose pulp and natural fibres, mounted on a Sonus faber original design die-cast aluminium basket.

Sonus faber has developed a new crossover technology, especially for the Maxima Amator. The IFF Crossover (Interactive Fusion Filtering) design foregoes a conventional first-order design, with non-academic transfer functions based on the company’s accelerated progressive slopes.
