Sonus faber Sf16,
feel the connection...
2016 marked a new chapter in Sonus faber’s rich history with the re-birth of a classic icon first pioneered in 1980: The Snail.
Sf16 is a tribute to this classic speaker and subwoofer combination which adds the latest in driver technology, a powerful 1400 watt amplification system complete with wireless connectivity and an elegant new look nothing short of luxurious.
Re-imagined as a complete all-in-one hi-fi system, the Sf16 has the unique ability to adjust driver location based on optimal dispersion at a given output level. Whether relaxing alone or hosting a loud party, Sf16 can use its motorized arms to transform itself to meet your needs.
A new technology.
The Sf16 movement is done by two strong Aluminum / Carbon fiber arms activated by brushless motors digitally controlled.
To optimize low frequency extension, we incorporated two custom designed ultra long throw drivers featuring a rigid but extremely light Aluminum/Magnesium alloy cone.
Accuracy in music reproduction is acheived through the use of 2” midrange drivers featuring powerful neodynium magnets and Aluminum/Magnesium allow drivers. The tweeter is a ½” modified silk dome design for maximum clarity and musicality.
