THE BLEND OF TWO JEWELS

IL CREMONESE EX3ME

Great vitality and surprising tonal balance

More than 5 years since its debut, Il Cremonese remains one of the most popular loudspeaker
systems in the Sonus faber portfolio. Initially introduced with the intention of completing the Homage collection,
due to its superb capability, this speaker immediately placed itself among the ranks of
Sonus faber’s Reference collection catalogue, the line that perfectly exemplifies
the brand’s excellence. This particular predilection turned the Il Cremonese
into the perfect platform for one of the most important activities
of the electro-acoustic design: experimentation. This is the birth
of a unique loudspeaker system, embellished by the return of an historical
Sonus faber finish: the classic “Red Violin”.

FUSION

By mainly working around the behavior of both the top and bottom ends of the audio spectrum it was possible to extract a performance, avoiding any sort of interpretation, of the musical message so that Il Cremonese ex3me could even be used as an extremely high-performance professional studio monitor.
The new loudspeaker system came to life by the fusion of elements belonging to the original project, such as midrange and woofers, with the most iconic solution derived from the company's 30th Anniversary celebration concept speaker model, Ex3ma.

Beryllium DLC

From Ex3ma, Il Cremonese ex3me inherits the Beryllium DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) tweeter.
Sonus faber set aside its classic silk diaphragm Damped Apex Dome™ tweeter to approach this transducer construction.
Brilliant in terms of transparency and micro dynamics, the Beryllium tweeter diaphragm has formidable physical characteristics but it has a sound presentation often described as a “metallic flavor” which can often make listening unpleasant.

Il Cremonese ex3me

To mitigate this typical Beryllium characteristic we used a treatment called “Chemical Vapor Deposition“. A layer of D.L.C. is deposited on the diaphragm surface, turning it black and giving the Beryllium some of the typical properties of diamond— the most important being its amorphous nature and unmatched strength.
As a result, the new diaphragm is increasingly rigid with a nearly unperceivable higher resonant frequency, making it capable of extremely fast sound, very detailed and airy – free of coloration.

FEATURES

Il Cremonese ex3me is a unique loudspeaker system
characterized by new technical features and by
a precise performance target: absolute neutrality.
