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 them, 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 them to maintain a tighter tolerance compared to that of the past.

After the cabinet’s studies and the drivers’ selection, they focused on defining the perfect tonal balance of the project.

The result is the IFF Crossover “Interactive Fusion Filtering” the perfect sonic performance beyond their proven classic implementations.

This is the heart and the brain of Maxima Amator that allows them to
to obtain a total fusion of the two drivers for an extremely natural and fluid sound reproduction.

The final step of the long design process of Maxima Amator was, as always,
the “tuning by ear”.
