ACOUSTIQUE QUALITY PASSION ORCA LOUDSPEAKER PAIR
PINNACLE OF SOUND DESIGN
Passion Orca’s beauty was shaped by natural selection through millions of years of evolution. Physical laws define the beauty and functionality of AQ's Passion Orca. Multiple small segments form the baffle and the enclosure. These origami-like segments create an extremely rigid speaker cabinet while minimizing parallel surfaces and eliminating the internal standing waves.
The very shape of the Orca achieves significant reduction of parallel surfaces. The segmented areas have additional advantage – a small dimensionality. Small areas are much more resistant to resonances yet another disadvantage of a typical loudspeaker. Orca small-segmented walls are much more resistant to resonances and are crucial design element as wall segments are connected at an angle that increases the overall rigidity of the enclosure. This precise and complex manufacturing technology elevates Orca beyond typical loudspeaker production and it allows removing voluminous internal bracing thus allowing slender dimensions. To achieve perfection a BDS active resonance correction was also applied. The resulting enclosure is incredibly rigid resonance-free and delivers astonishing performance.
Orca depends on a strong muscular tale to charter the waters. Orca Loudspeaker depends on design specific stand that allows proper support, listening height and absolutely compliments the slender beauty. To secure precise alignment a series of hidden neodymium magnets were imbedded in the enclosure and the stand. Antivibration pads reduce vibration transmission to the stand and quartet or audiophile trio of spikes further reduce transmission to the floor. Although modest in size Orca sound is surprisingly powerful and voluminous.
