SB Acoustics will introduce a new series of speaker kits, which undoubtedly will be noticed by many DIY enthusiasts. This will include two-way bookshelf Satori Kits and 2.5-way floor standing SB Acoustics kits, as well as Micro Anniversary kits. The company as shared some details on the exquisite 2.5-way Rinjani kits; a name inspired by the famous volcano mountain in Lombok, Indonesia, a place of immense natural beauty.
The Rinjani 2.5-way floor standing speaker kits are designed to deliver transparent and dynamic sound reproduction using top of the line SATORI drivers, MW16P and TW29R. The Rinjani asymmetric faceted speaker cabinets are specifically designed to reduce high frequency diffraction and yield superb imaging qualities. The 7 degrees inclined cabinet shape is another distinctive feature, designed to deliver better sound staging even with a simple crossover design, whilst diminishing standing waves. Two dual rear ports also contribute for even distributed resonances. The integrated pedestal complements the speaker design perfectly, meant to accentuate its unique design and features.
Rinjani cabinet panels are constructed from 18mm MDF with internal bracing to distribute cabinet vibrations evenly and lower sound coloration. The wedge shaped inner rear faces minimizes unwanted direct reflections. The ARA two-way speaker kits are a smaller brother of the Rinjani, sharing the same design concept and high-quality finish, typical of high-end speakers costing multiple times the price of these kits.
More details and pricing information will be confirmed at the High End Show, in Munich.
