The DA VINCI loudspeaker represents a new benchmark for EMMESpeakers, with the ambition to create an innovative acoustic topology enclosed in a revolutionary shape, guided by their usual and brazen determination to explore new technical routes matched with leading edge concepts of design.
The project requirements were:
- Full range compact bookshelf loudspeaker
- High power handling
- Sealed box
- BSSE System (Box Shape for sound enhancement) by EMMESpeakers
- High end sound reproduction
Those base requirements brought EMMESpeakers to design a new concept of a threeway layout, in which the Woofer has been positioned on the rear baffle.
The achieved solution offers two substantial advantages:
- Shift the traditional vertical development to one in depth
- Keep the acoustic center in a restrained vertical area, all over the frequency range
The acoustic center moves only of 120 millimeters, between the Midwoofer and Tweeter, just like a Two-way system but the DA VINCI is a Three-way. That means at the listening distance of 2.5 metres, the acoustic centre moves less than 3° degrees, very close to a point source, with huge advantages in terms of soundstage wideness, stability and focalization. An incredible result for a Three-way loudspeaker.
