Magico announced the M2 loudspeaker, a floorstanding model which expands the M-Series product lineup and features many ground-breaking engineering designs distilled from the M6 and M3.
The M2 to feature a new monocoque enclosure, similar in construction technique introduced in the M6, formed using multiple layers of carbon fiber adding up to a 3/8-inch thickness. Similar to the external shell of an F-35 fighter jet, this enclosure construction, compared to machined or extruded aluminum parts, increases the structural strength-to-weight ratio by a factor of 60, while reducing overall weight by 50% and yielding outer dimensions that are 30% smaller without compromising internal volume. The curved interior and exterior walls minimize internal standing waves and eliminate external diffraction.
The M2 incorporates a 28-mm Diamond coated Beryllium dome tweeter with optimized geometry. The Diamond coating on the Beryllium dome increases the stiffness without adding the extra weight of a pure Diamond dome and offers a near perfect stiffness to weight ratio that is unmatched in the industry, the company states, therefore provides extra-long excursion while maintaining ultra-wide dispersion characteristics and ultra-low distortion measurements.
The newly designed Magico six-inch midrange driver and seven inch bass driver cones found in the M2 are both manufactured using Multi-Wall carbon XG Nanographene with a new ultra-stiff proprietary carbon weave which is 20% lighter and 300% stiffer than cone materials used in previous Magico product offerings. The midrange driver features an underhung neodymium-based motor system that uses two extra-large magnets which provide an ultra-stabilized magnetic field for the pure Titanium voice coil to operate within. According to the press release, this driver design sets a new industry benchmark for performance and the minimization of total harmonic distortion.
A purpose built sub-enclosure formed of a proprietary polymer, houses the midrange driver to optimize the control and articulation of mid-band frequencies and provides protection from the massive back wave pressure of the two bass drivers which are vertically aligned to achieve ideal room integration.
An internal three-axis matrix framework along with three tension rods running front to back internally, contribute to an extremely rigid enclosure which eliminates unwanted resonances and coloration. The four drivers in the M2 are acoustically integrated using Magico’s exclusive Elliptical Symmetry Crossover topology that includes state-of-the-art components from Mundorf. The MPOD 3-Pt stand contributes to the overall sonic performance by converting mechanical energy to heat through the science of constrained layer damping, while providing ideal coupling to the floor.
The new M2 is expected to start shipping at 1st quarter 2019.
