ESSENCE OF A BRAND

Since 1983, many moments have marked the history of Sonus faber; the launch of the Olympica Collection 6 years ago is one of them.

One of the first lines presented as a complete family of products, but above all, the very first one to feature original drivers, entirely designed in Sonus faber.

Olympica Nova is the second generation of the iconic family of 2013, improved in its form and substance, imbued with the timeless values that inspired us in creating the original line.

The result is a new Collection that embraces the most advanced technologies that already enhance our most prestigious creations.

ORGANIC SHAPE

Sonus faber Olympica Nova I

The lack of flat and parallel walls improves enclosure performance and maintains the typical asymmetrical Lute shape of first generation Olympica.

The asymmetrical shape of the cabinet is an original design concept that allows versatile positioning of the speakers to tune the bass response in any room.

Inspired by nature, the lines follow the flow of a circular spiral motion, achieving a more organic cabinet structure.

No longer just a functional element added to handle airflow, the reflex duct is now fully integrated into the cabinet, further improving the speed and transparency of sound
