ACCORDO Speakers by Franco Serblin
“I have always loved small speakers, for their discreet presence, for their suitability in less critical environments, for the “magic” which they often are able to create in music reproduction. With “Accordo”, I followed design patterns that are particularly dear to me. A sound, a voice capable of reaching the depths of the soul…” – Franco Serblin
The creation of Accordo
The chord is one of the foundations of music, essential for the tuning of a musical instrument.
Without preconceptions, if we consider a large orchestra, a single instrument or a piece of music, there is a chord at the base of it all.
Voicing a speaker involves the tuning and harmonising of the different parts into something uniquely expressive and coherent: from the drivers to the crossover parts, from the cabinet to its support, the singularity of each element blends into a whole, a presence capable of giving to listeners the “quality of illusion”.
Miniaturize to expand
The beauty of limitations: how to surpass with a small speaker the evocative ability of a big one.
To miniaturise in order to expand: leaving mass, encumbrance and, of course, frequency range to gain air and immediacy. A renunciation that is, in actuality, an achievement.
The support: a fundamental element for aesthetic and functional balance, it also includes the crossover, freeing the acoustical chamber from its presence; a definitive solution to avoiding potential interference with the drivers.
