The purpose of a speaker system is to convert into sound energy all electrical energy supplied by the amplifier. In fact, it is fundamental that this energy not be absorbed or stored by other components of the system, which would transfer that energy to the surrounding environment or return it to the speaker itself creating delay and phase distortions. It is very harmful for the proper sound reproduction that part of the energy be absorbed by the mechanical structure through vibrations of the speakers, with the relevant generation of parasite sound emission, as well as that there be some incoherent transmission of energy to the speakers, which alters and distorts the correct sound generation. The fundamental condition to prevent these undesired distortions is to reduce to a minimum any possible disturbing factor. This objective is achieved through an optimized design of the speaker-cabinet coupling, as well as of the cabinet-support-surrounding environment, through the elimination of the various resonance modes of the mechanical system. In the new Albedo speakers this is achieved with a very rigid mechanical coupling of the cabinet to the support and to ground, using: a damped steel binding bar; a high mass base with adjustable ultra-rigid spikes; a slanted support cabinet built with sandwich tapered wood; ceramic low-moving-mass drivers with ultra-rigid basket.
