Strength and grace. Dynamics and melody. Full and empty. Sweetness and impetuosity. Strong contrasts, seemingly opposites, that coexist in Music. THE SONUS FABER SIGNATURE STYLE The idea of the dual curvature of the cabinet sides, firstly conceptualized with the Sonus faber and evolved in Aida, is here enhanced thanks to a new design that reinvents the ``lyra`` outline merging two separate identities that cooperate inside the same shape. FROM THE SONUS FABER ONWARDS Ideas and patents developed within the Sonus faber, at first, and Aida, later, are integrated into this extraordinary loudspeaker system. The driver units technology, designed and developed by Sonus faber, sets a step forward in the technological innovation. FEATURES Lilium appearance reveals its essential duality, characterized by two separates acoustic chambers. The challenge of this projects is to achieve a new unique synthesis starting from an ontological division. THE TOP Made of tempered glass, the plate covers the Lilium’s top with the shape of the lily that gives the inspiration for the speaker’s name. You can see the passive radiator moving through the transparency, while infra-low frequencies vibrations invade the pavement, leaving the sound free to spread in the air. DAD™ TWEETER The DAD™ 28 XTR-04 “Arrow point” tweeter is the definitive union between the timbre of classic drivers with dome diaphragms, and the great features of a ring tweeter. This tweeter is also configured with a double rear acoustic labyrinth decompression chamber made with resonance free solid spruce wood. THE STRUCTURE Lilium is a loudspeaker system made up by two separate tuned enclosure, all totally independent from each other. The main full-range enclosure benefits from the use of the para-aperiodic Stealth reflex™ tuning system. The infra-low frequencies reproduction enclosure is implemented with our patented decoupling system Zero Vibration Transmission™, with the removal residual vibration system Tuned Mass Damper™ and with an up firing passive radiator. DEEP LOW CONTROL The powerful infra-woofer SW26XT-08, featuring a solid structure of soaked cellulose, works within the P.Z.I. (Pressure Zone Interface) acoustic conditions, a "ground effect" configuration that guarantees the best possible interface between the infra-low frequencies and the environment. Its output level can be adjusted through the "Deep Low Control", for a perfect integration in the environment. BINDING POST The terminal plates for connections allow tri-amplification and are located on two separate plates, to further underline the total independence of the front and rear cabinets. ZERO VIBRATION TRANSMISSION™ The infra-woofer's cabinet is mechanically decoupled from the rest of Lilium’s structure and, consequently, from the floor through the patented system Zero Vibration Transmission™. This system, optimized with progressively yielding elastomers, not only totally reduces the transmission of spurious vibrations into the listening environment, but it also inhibits any modulation between the infra-woofers and the frontal drivers, at the same time allowing the infra-woofers to function in “ground-effect”.
