British high tech speaker design company Amina Technologies is delighted to announce their brand new audiophile flagship product, the 2-way AIW750E. The product boosts an impressive 200w peak power handling (100w full continuous IEC) with an efficiency of 87dB 1m/1w after applying a full 2mm plaster skim coat.
Building on the success of the new Evolution range launched at the start of this year, the two part AIW750E is the most powerful, smoothest power response and widest bandwidth totally invisible speaker on the market, creating a new industry standard.
By using two separate optimised panels fed via an external crossover, increased bass extension is ensured whilst the dedicated mid/high panel delivers a highly detailed and open sound stage, and like the existing Evolution family members launched over the last 12 months, they fully exploit the companies new "OptiDriveTM" and OptiDampingTM technologies whilst introducing the companys new OptiModalTM technology.
The Amina Evolution AIW750E specifications in brief:
Frequency response (with 2mm plaster skim): 50 Hz 20 kHz
Power handling (continuous/peak): 100W/200W
Impedance (nominal): 4 Ohm
Featured Technology: OptiDriveTM; OptiDampingTM; OptiModalTM
Building on its 12 year long experience in designing world class, super reliable invisible loudspeakers solutions, the "OptiDriveTM" technology boosts high frequency whilst further extending its already extremely wide high frequency dispersion. In practice this means exceptionally wide sweet spots in residential home theatres, and the use of considerably less loudspeakers overall in large commercial venues.
At the same time the OptiDampingTM technology combines Amina's brand new exciter technology designed for optimum linearity, with selective modal damping, to increase low frequency extension and dynamic range. The result is improved bass definition especially at higher volume levels.
Aminas brand new OptiModalTM technology provides improved low frequency extension and dynamic range whilst at the same time delivering even smoother midrange and treble dispersion. This is achieved by limiting the active areas of the panels; each optimised for a different task, and provides the listener with a wider bandwidth and more dynamic musical presentation.
The Evolution AIW750E is designed for use with the companys existing BackboxFS in stud walls or ceilings. When physically locating the two units, the bass panel benefits from close proximity to floor or ceiling boundary and the mid/high panel should be positioned directly above, beside or below it.
For further fidelity improvement the product can also be used in a bi-amplifier configuration. The company can also advise installers on parameter settings for those wishing to establish ultra dynamic DSP based crossover solutions as an alternative to the external passive crossover provided with the product.
The Evolution 750 is designed to be specified and used in high-end stereo and surround sound applications in homes, and in premier commercial facilities where paramount interior design dictates absolute invisible audio technology, preventing the use of conventional bass enhancement.
Aminas products are based upon the concept of reproducing sound from a vibrating surface, just like that of a natural musical instrument. The company uses terms such as electronic tuning fork and soundboard (made from high tech composite materials) to describe its revolutionary, flat paneled products which are designed to be installed into walls or ceiling ahead of the final skim of plaster being applied. This invisible solution is perfect for historic and modern minimalist designs whether for stunningly beautiful residential homes or high end commercial facilities. The product is designed to replace a cut away section of plasterboard, and, once cables are in place, is extremely quick and simple to install either in a new build or in a retrofit renovation.
The Evolution AIW750E carries a 10 year manufacturer limited warranty, and Amina support the product with a detailed installation training program. The product requires specialist installation knowledge and is not available directly to the consumer, thus enabling our installation partners to protect their Unique Selling Propositions and keep margins secure.
The product is on display on stand E162 in the Eco Design and Build section at 100% Designs.
