F-Antique series features luxurious antique look and superb sound reproduction. It’s a perfect 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 7.2 system)
Solid wood cabinet is finished with natural walnut veneer. The internal enhancing structure reduces cabinet resonance and coloration to a small extent. Each speaker weighs as much as 207lbs. 4th-way 4th-order vented box system consists of 5 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 two 8″ long-throw woofers.
Acoustically Acute Design
With three smaller drivers mounted together in the middle -upper part of the woofer, a small area sound source is formed, which improves directivity of the system. 8″ woofer can respond to frequencies all the way down to 40Hz. The combination of ribbon tweeter and dome tweeter enable the system to cover higher frequencies even up to 40 kHz, when the ribbon tweeter focuses on frequencies higher than 15 kHz.
Center speaker adopts MTM array of drivers, consisting of two 6.5″ midbass drivers, a 1.1″ dome tweeter and an isodynamic ribbon tweeter which are consistent with the front speakers.
Different Surround Stereo Sound Setups
Two choices are available for surround speakers: bi-pole/di-pole surround speaker F10R and mono-pole surround speaker F10M.
F10R features two 6.5″ midbass drivers, two 1.1″ domes tweeters and two isodynamic ribbon tweeters while F10M only features one set of the above drivers.
F10M is mainly used in a 9.2 or 11.2 system, in which it is used for directivity. It can also be used as hi-fi bookshelf speakers for its high performance in sound reproduction.
