Sonus faber Sonetto VIII

The flagship of the Sonetto Collection, the biggest speaker that evolves the line

Sonetto VIII

ITALIAN TRADITIONAL CULTURE

Sonus faber always found its inspiration in the highest Italian culture.

This time they entrusted the history of their Literature for representing the new Sonetto Collection.

The Sonetto (Sonnet) is the most ancient Italian Poetic structure.

Originally it meant “Sound, Melody“and was traditionally used to accompany music performances.

The first step in the Sonus faber world brings the name of the foundations of Literature history in Italy and in the rest of the world.

DESIGN

Sonetto VIII Walnut

 

Sonetto VIII is the most powerful 3-way speaker of the Sonetto collection with three 180mm woofers for the best reproduction of lower frequencies and high-end standards.

Sonus faber have designed a speaker that completely represents their roots.

The entire collection is a true Sonus faber that features all the iconic elements of the brand: natural sound, natural materials, the Lute shape, the excellent finishes typical of Italian craftsmanship, and manufacturing done completely in our factory in Vicenza.

FEATURES

The “Made in Italy“ tag: a matter of pride and a guarantee for an unmistakable Italian style

LEATHER TOP

Leather Top
The Sonus faber Sonetto collection’s floor-standing and bookshelf models inherit from the Olympica line the leather top, hand-sewn, soft to the touch and embellished by the hot branded Sonus faber logo.

THE VOICE OF SONUS FABER

The combination of a silk dome tweeter with the DAD™ (Damped Apex Dome™) technology and a midrange with a special natural fiber and a paper blend air dried diaphragm, defines their iconic “Voice of Sonus faber”.
This configuration that characterised the entire Sonus faber catalogue, from the Reference to the Olympica collection, is available for the first time in this price range.

MIDRANGE AND WOOFER

These speakers have been designed from scratch specifically for this collection and they feature the die cast basket, done completely in Sonus faber laboratories.

WOOFER

For an optimal lowest frequencies reproduction, a special aluminium alloy diaphragm has been designed.
This allows for an ultra-fast, tight and yet deep bass performance.

REFLEX PORT

The Sonetto collection’s reflex ports are all sited on the base of the speakers, except for the centre channels, to keep the design as clean as possible and at the same time make in-room placement very forgiving.

STRUCTURAL RIGIDITY

Consistent with the most prestigious Sonus faber models, aluminium has been chosen for the column feet, extruded or milled from solid billets, to provide an extreme rigidity.
