Concrete Audio title will let you know that this German brand does not deal with wood or ceramics, but cement, water and sand …
Their wall speaker called F1, is somewhere in the intersection of the diagram, when we look at audiophiles and lovers of architecture. The first question that comes to your mind is “Why concrete?”. The answer is simple and short – eliminating unwanted vibrations.
A good home speaker should not vibrate, as modern drivers produce a linear spectrum of sound. If the speaker cabinet itself vibrates due to its construction or material, then these vibrations affect its performance, amplifying or decreasing certain frequencies.
The unique properties of concrete – its weight, inadequate structure and density – provide a medium that is protected against unwanted vibrations, which are the enemy of every fan of good sound. Each concrete panel of 32mm depth contains 41 electrodynamic mini speakers in the hive arrangement, which are designed to act as a harmonic source. F1 is designed for wireless use and is compatible with phones, tablets or other streaming devices.
Each F1 speaker can be customized with aluminum or wooden frames, with a decorative cover that guarantees a slightly more discreet presence.
