FYNE AUDIO's TECHNOLOGIES

 


 

Our experienced team of acoustic and mechanical design engineers have been in the loudspeaker business for very many years. Since coming together to form FYNE AUDIO, they have been busy honing their existing skills and developing technologies to ensure that we can offer best in class performance at all price levels.

 

 

 

ISOFLARETM

 


FYNE AUDIO’S IsoFlareTM driver is a point source system whereby the bass / midrange driver shares a common centre with the high frequency unit. Providing outstanding stereo imaging, even off axis, energy is radiated isotropically with constant directivity, following the flare of the driver cone. Sound is produced as if emanating from a single point in space.

BASSTRAXTMTRACTRIX DIFFUSER SYSTEM


The BassTraxTM Tractrix profile is known to maintain a 90 degree angle at each intersection of the expanding wavefront, thus avoiding reflections. This clever arrangement makes the loudspeaker less critical of room positioning.

FYNEFLUTETMSURROUND TECHNOLOGY


Leaving no stone unturned, our design team have developed a method of improving the detrimental effect that standard roll rubber surrounds have on driver performance.

 

 

 

 

 
 

ILLUSTRATING THE POINT

 


 

FYNE AUDIO’S IsoFlareTM driver is a point source system whereby the bass / midrange driver shares a common centre with the high frequency unit. Providing outstanding stereo imaging, even off axis, energy is radiated isotropically with constant directivity, following the flare of the driver cone. Sound is produced as if emanating from a single point in space.

 

 

 

ACOUSTIC EVOLUTION

 


 

Dr. Paul Mills, Fyne Audio’s Technical Director, has considerable experience with point source drivers. Furthermore our technical team, responsible for the audio performance and mechanical build of this type of driver, have many decades of experience between them.

 

 

 

MATERIAL FACTS

 


 

To fully optimise the driver’s performance, every  aspect of the meticulous design has been considered. Eliminating unwanted vibrations, which would be detrimental to the sound quality, our IsoFlareTM point source drivers are built around a rigid cast aluminium chassis. Multifibre paper cones are used providing natural sounding midrange and clean transient behaviour.

 

 

 

SMALL DETAIL...BIG EFFECT

 


 

A vented rear chamber in the Neodymium HF magnet places low frequency resonance well below the crossover region. And pushing the break up mode well above the level of human hearing, the highly rigid titanium high frequency diaphragm delivers a smooth and extended response. The unique geometry of the high frequency unit’s waveguide provides a flat frequency response and avoids internal reflections

 
 
 

WHERE AND WHY WE USE BASSTRAXTM

 


 

Bookshelf and floorstanding models from the F500 series up to the flagship F1 employ a downwards firing port system, and the floorstanding models use a twin cavity reflex loading system. This loading system broadens the tuning frequency to reduce cone excursion, and acts as a muffler, blocking standing waves produced by the main internal port.

 
 

 

PERFECT ROOM INTEGRATION

 


 

Below the vent in the base of the loudspeaker, the BassTraxTMTractrix profile diffuser (patent applied for) is used to convert the plain wave energy to an expanding spherical 360-degree wavefront, integrating energy uniformly into the room.

 

 

DESIGN PROFILE

 


 

This profile has been previously applied to horn loudspeakers by Voight in the 1920’s, but the application to a diffuser of this type is thought to be novel.
The BassTraxTM Tractrix profile is known to maintain a 90 degree angle at each intersection of the expanding wavefront, thus avoiding reflections. This clever arrangement also makes the loudspeaker less critical of room positioning.

 
 
 
 

UNDERSTANDING THE ISSUE

 


 

With conventional driver surround profiles, at a specific frequency, energy can be reflected back down the cone, causing colouration.

 
 

ALL THINGS ARE NOT EQUAL

 


 

To provide a non-homogeneous interface, which very effectively terminates cone energy, we employ FyneFluteTMtechnology.

This variable geometry, within the computer designed fluting, eliminates mis-termination effects and reduces colouration, providing greater musical accuracy.
