F-Antique series features luxurious antique look and superb sound reproduction. It’s a combination of retro appearance and modern cutting-edge electroacoustic technology. You can enjoy your speakers with surround sound setups from a simple 2.1 to 7.2 or even 11.2 theater systems. (Image below is a 9.2 system)
Each front speaker is a 4-way 4th-order vented box system consists of 4 premium drivers: swan’s typical isodynamic ribbon tweeter, 1.1″ soft dome tweeter made of natural fiber, 6.5″ midbass driver featuring Kevlar bulletproof fiber and 15″ long-throw woofer.
All the four drivers are housed in a solid wood cabinet finished with natural walnut veneer. The internal enhancing structure can reduce the cabinet resonance and offers sound with less coloration.
Acoustically Acute Design
Of all four drivers, the three smaller drivers are arranged in a line with two tweeters hanging in front of the woofer, where a small area of sound source is formed to enhance directivity.
The approach of using two tweeters not only provides more accurate sound but also allows the system to respond to higher frequencies. For frequencies between 15kHz and 40kHz, it is up to the isodynamic ribbon tweeter.
Center speaker adopts MTM array of drivers, consisting of two 6.5″ midbass drivers, a 1.1″ dome tweeter and an isodynamic ribbon tweeter. The consistency in configuration allows for seamless sound reproduction with the front speakers.
Different Surround Stereo Sound Setups
Two different types of effect speakers are available: bi/di-pole surround speaker F10R and mono-pole surround speaker F10M.
F10R comes with two 6.5″ midbass drivers, two 1.1″ domes tweeters and two isodynamic ribbon tweeters. There is a quick switch to change between Bi-pole and Di-pole settings. This speaker is very suitable for reproducing diffused and non-directional sound field in home theater systems.
F10M is mainly used in a 9.2 or 11.2 system, in which it is used for achieving good directivity. It can also be used as hi-fi bookshelf speakers for its high performance in sound reproduction.
