NO-COMPROMISE AUDIO

Compact and slim cabinet that offers a full frequency response

The compact and slim PHANTOM S-80 cabinet offers a full frequency response similar to that of a floor-standing loudspeaker, but without sacrificing valuable living room space, making it perfect for any placement in your audio system or home cinema. Delivering a no-compromise in-wall audio performance with the use of proven speaker technologies, the S-80 includes our characteristic wood fibre cones, low-loss rubber surround, solid MDF front baffle, signature hybrid tweeter module and superior innovative magnet design including an SMC pole piece. All models are built around a rotatable hybrid tweeter module making them easy to install for any audio use – be it stereo, centre channel or surround.

CABINET DESIGN

Integrates elegantly with the wall via an extruded aluminium frame

The compact design of the PHANTOM S-80 fits into most standard walls. It was a challenge constructing such a shallow back cabinet - only 103 mm deep - with such a small footprint, and still achieving the perfect inner volume for the woofer. The cabinet is constructed from a solid MDF that holds the easy-to-use dogleg mounting system and the terminals. The front of the PHANTOM S-80 integrates elegantly with the wall via the surrounding extruded aluminium frame, and the magnet mounted front grille forms the visual presence of the PHANTOM S series.

SMC

Soft magnetic compound

Due to its superior precision and minimal distortion, we chose to base the PHANTOM S-80 primary woofer on the SMC magnet system originally developed for the EPICON series. SMC has the unique ability to deliver very high magnetic conductivity and very low electrical conductivity, therefore dramatically lowering the level of distortion, while at the same time delivering all the wanted qualities of a good magnet system. By surrounding the SMC pole piece with aluminium rings and a 1.5” four-layer voice coil, we achieved optimal control, low distortion and high power handling.

DRIVERS

Designed and optimised for both bass and midrange performance

The specially developed 8" woofer used in the PHANTOM S-80 was designed and optimised for both bass and midrange performance. Offering 70% more surface area, the 8" woofer moves more air and delivers a higher sound pressure at very low frequencies compared to a traditional 6½" woofer. All this whilst still delivering detailed information, rich midrange sound and full frequency response as of a traditional floor-standing speaker. The rotatable hybrid tweeter module in the PHANTOM S-80 is the perfect high-frequency solution, as it combines a soft dome tweeter with a ribbon tweeter. This ensures an amazing rendering and dispersion of the high-frequencies that outperforms other tweeter technologies.

INSTALLATION

The ribbon tweeter should be placed at ear height

When installing the PHANTOM S-80 speaker into your wall, the ribbon tweeter should be placed at ear height. We decided to turn the driver placement upside down to make positioning easier, and this allows for a more traditional mounting height in line with the TV. We also turned the hybrid tweeter module on its head to keep the dome tweeter close to the midrange woofer, ensuring an optimum handover from the woofer to the part of the tweeter that handles the lowest frequencies. When mounting this way, we found both the integration with the room and the bass performance improved.

WIDE DISPERSION

Smooth and well-integrated sound for a wider listening position

By designing our drivers for wide dispersion, we make our loudspeakers easy to integrate into any room, delivering a smooth and well-integrated sound for a wider listening position. Working with the off-axis optimisation ensures that the listener will have a large sweet spot where the soundstage is perfect, but also ensures high-quality sound away from the central sweet spot. By optimising the audio signal for off-axis distribution, both the direct signal and the reflected signal will have the same high quality, allowing for consistent high-quality sound across a much wider listening area.
