Italian audio engineers from the company Albedo presented the second version of the Axcentia acoustics. These speakers draw attention to the unusual sloping shape of the case.
In the lower part, it passes into a tapering plinth, fixed on a powerful base of sheet metal. The Axcentia MKII model is based on the proprietary Helmholtz resonator system (Helmholine), which amplifies and normalizes the recoil at low frequencies.
The Axcentia MKII uses almost the entire set of Albedo proprietary technologies. The sandwich composite body is complemented by heavy metal overlays connected by metal rods. This design is said to provide the Axcentia MKII with the necessary rigidity and inertia. It also explains the weight of these columns — 87 kg each.
Traditionally for the Albedo models, the Axcentia MKII has a set of speakers from the German company Accuton with ceramic diffusers. These are two 7-inch bass players, a 5-inch midrange driver, and a 1.2-inch tweeter. They are united by a first-order crossover circuit.
According to the developers, this should indicate good consistency. In addition, the manufacturer mentioned solutions that provided the best linearity in amplitude and phase.
With a sensitivity of 87 dB, the 8-ohm Albedo Axcentia MKII works out a frequency range of 35-32,000 Hz. The 1.25 m high speakers are available in black oak, macassar, and black lacquer finishes.
The price of a pair of Albedo Axcentia MKII in Europe was 29,000 euros.
