Signature i49

Please Read - Inportant Delivery Information


DESCRIPTION

 

After the success of the Signature i90, we set ourselves the challenge of building the most compact high quality speaker while maintaining our core design philosophies – accuracy, functionality, value exceeding expectations. Worthy of bearing the VAF Signature name the result is the Signature i49. Universal in it’s application the i49 brings amazing performance into the most space challenged rooms and delivers high quality reproduction where minimum visual impact is a priority.

The i49 is the smallest speaker we have seen that incorporates a hand made 4″  dual concentric driver with a FULL size 1″ dome tweeter. This tweeter is the same unit used in our Famous i91 monitor speakers owned and loved by many professional musicians and connoisseurs of fine music. Paired with our MPB-SW2 subwoofer, thie i49 makes a brilliant stereo system and is equally at home in a five or more channel surround sound application.

Multiple mounting options make it truly universal, on a shelf, component cabinet, stand or on wall – the i49 can even be flush mounted into a wall or ceiling.

As with all of our speakers, the i49 is made in Australia. Every speaker individually inspected and tested before packing and distribution to your door.

***Stands, flush mount and wall brackets accessories are sold separately***

***Sold in singles for Centre Channel, pairs for Stereo and  5.1 packages here.***

TIME ALIGNMENT

Time alignment is achieved by stepping the various drivers (Woofers, Tweeters, Midranges) on the front of the speaker so that the acoustic centres are the same distance from a listener. For this to be effective a special kind of electrical crossover must also be used. All VAF loudspeakers are time algned.

SHAPED VERTICAL & HORIZONTAL POWER RESPONSE

VAF engineer the power response of all its loudspeakers to radiate sound as evenly as is possible for each model. In this way the proportion of bass, mid and trebble in the direct sound corelates more closely with the proportion of bass, mid and treble in the reflected sound and the listeners brain can corelate the two making the speakers less effected by a rooms acoustics and easier to place in a room.

STORED ENERGY DAMPING

All speakers take a moment to stop making sound (decay). The faster a speaker stops making sound the less that sound ‘blankets’ sound which follow it, or finer details in the sound. The more evenly the bass, mid and treble decay the more consistent the ‘pitch’ of the speaker. VAF loudspeakers are among the very few in the world that engineer for fast and even decay in all its incarnations. This includes diffraction, cabinet resonances, internal cabinet sound reflections, stored energy in electrical crossovers and more.

OPTIMUM Q FILTERS

As no driver is perfect good crossovers also equalise and shape the response of each driver as well as the overal response of the speaker.VAF use a particular type of design aproach which minimises the unessesary stored energy in crossovers, and as a result produce a much more pure and natural sound than conventional crossovers.

HYPERSOFT DAMPING

VAF have performed exhaustive testing to find the most effective damping materials. This generation of Hypersoft offers the best performance yet. Accurate placement within each cabinet ensures maximum attenuation of any internal standing waves.
