As the third member of the Heritage family, we pay homage to our Italian roots and to our artisans as well as the people who are responsible for developing Sonus faber products. Completely Made in Italy, Maxima Amator is a project started many years ago and abandoned because considered impossible. Today, we achieve that dream: a two-way floor stander concept applied to a solid wood cabinet.
The two-way design has been a strong piece of brand identity for Sonus faber products. In general, hi-fi enthusiasts deem the two-way loudspeaker system as one of the purest systems achievable. For this reason, the Maxima Amator was a fun project for us, serving as the glorification of successfully merging two speakers to achieve a unique emotion with the maximum representation of the “Voice of Sonus faber” – a goal to achieve natural sound.
The solid wood is a living material that continuously changes over time. Due to this, the Maxima Amator’s large cabinet had to be meticulously studied and fine-tuned to avoid the risk of deformation or breakage as the wood ages.
Sonus faber was able to overcome this limit thanks to modern wood drying methods, use of internal structural ribs fixed with flexible glues, and new CNC methods that allow us to maintain a tighter tolerance compared to that of the past.
After the cabinet’s studies and the drivers’ selection, we focused on defining the perfect tonal balance of the project.
