Magico S5 Mk II Loudspeaker

 

Magico S5 Mk II Loudspeaker

 

  Magico, the leader in high performance loudspeaker design and manufacture, is pleased to announce the new S5 Mk II. At first glance the S5 Mk II appears similar to its predecessor however, it is an entirely new design and incorporates distilled elements from our ground breaking engineering accomplishments found in the S7.

Detailed and extended high frequencies are provided by a newly designed 1-inch Magico Diamond coated Beryllium diaphragm tweeter that offers matching sensitivity, wide dispersion and increased power handling. A robust motor system and long-throw voice coil design enables lower distortion and cutoff frequencies that enhance driver integration with the midrange driver.
Open and transparent midrange performance is provided by a newly designed 7-inch Magico driver that sets a new benchmark of measured performance. The cone material is formulated using multi-wall carbon fiber and graphene nanoplatelet which combined is 20% lighter and 300% stiffer than the previous cone material used in the S5.

The underhung neodymium base motor system uses two extra-large magnets which provide as ultra-stabilized magnetic field for the pure titanium voice coil to operate within. A purpose built sub-enclosure made of a proprietary polymer material provides an independent and optimized environment for the midrange driver. This design concept was first introduced in the S3.

Newly designed 10-inch bass drivers have extremely powerful magnets, with ultra-stiff aluminum cones that are specially coated and finished with graphene dust caps. The new bass driver is capable of producing incredibly deep and powerful bass frequencies with the utmost speed and accuracy. The excursion rate of the voice coil is measured at 15-mm linear movement, twice as much as its predecessor, and produces clean undistorted sound pressure levels up to 120dB @ 50Hz/1-meter.

The impressive enclosure of the S5 Mk II is assembled from extruded aluminum, 1/2-inch thick and 16-inches in diameter. A massive new top plate is machined into an elegant 3D convex shape to minimize enclosure diffraction and break-up vertical standing waves. The thicker base plate incorporates a newly designed 4-point outrigger support that lowers the center of gravity and increases overall stability resulting in lower noise floor and increased dynamics.

All four drivers in the S5 Mk II are acoustically integrated using Magico's exclusive Elliptical Symmetry Crossover topology that includes state-of-the-art components from Mundorf of Germany. The dividing network maximizes frequency bandwidth while preserving phase linearity and minimizing IM distortion. Individual driver performance and the loudspeaker in its final form are tested and optimized for acoustical, mechanical, electromagnetic and thermal behaviors using the latest state-of-the-art Finite Element Analysis simulation testing equipment. The S5 Mk II is available in two separate finishes: M-Cast (textured powder coat) and M-Coat (smooth high-gloss paint).
