Magico's Least-Costly Loudspeaker Yet
agico's soon-to-be-available S1
($12,600 per pair) is said to incorporate design features of the company's MINI and M6
models and use "the worlds first monocoque 3/8" thick, 12"-diameter
extruded-aluminum loudspeaker enclosure." This enclosure was designed to minimize
diffraction effects, internal resonance, and damping requirements. The speaker uses a
7" midrange-bass driver that features a Magico Nano-Tec cone and a dual-neodymium
underhung motor system with titanium voice-coil former. The speaker has the same beryllium
tweeter used for Magico's larger S5. As with all Magico drivers, the latest custom
computer simulations were used to optimize electromagnetic and thermal behavior.

The S1's frequency response is stated as 32Hz-50kHz, with
minimum recommended power spec'd at 50 watts. Tall and sleek, the S1 measures 43"H x
8 1/2"D x 9 3/4"W and weighs 95 pounds. The speaker will be available in an
array of Magico's M-COAT paint blends, helping it integrate into any décor.
