The co-axial technology by Cabasse is a major innovation in the loudspeaker world because its principle is the closest proposal to the theoretical ideal. It results from the 60 years experience Cabasse has in driver developments and from 20 years expertise in the BC13 type of midrange-tweeter.

BC-13 coaxial midrange tweeter
Developed from the TC23, the three-way co-axial driver fitted to the top of the range speakers, including the flagships ?La Sph?re? and ?l?Oc?an?, assembled and controlled in our Breton workshops in Western France, the BC13 guarantees a faithful reproduction of timbres with no artificial colouration or lassitude in long listening, and provides a sound stage with unrivalled realism and depth.

Duocell cone woofers
The 21 cm (8?) woofers of Iroise 3 are fitted with a Duocell cone designed by Cabasse and manufactured by Cabasse robots. The very light, but rigid and nicely damped membrane has an exponential profile and variable thickness, to obtain the most of long throw systems and powerful magnets. They bring the full precision and vivacity required for high fidelity, true-to-life sound.

Cross-overs with variable slopes
The Cabasse development protocol combines numerous measurements in an anechoic room, combining on-axis and 360? results. It guarantees a perfect control of both the directive index and the total radiated power all along the frequency bandwidth to match the SCS principles. It is a key process, together with listening sessions, in the development of the cross-over boards. The slopes can vary from 6 to 24 dB per octave for an optimal acoustical phasing, taking into account the influence of the external shape of the enclosure to optimize the qualities of the co-axial drive-units.
Technology and elegance
The enclosure of Iroise 3 looks like its acoustical signature, pure and simple, free from any artificial appendix. Elegance outside, lots of technical solutions inside such as:
– Non-parallel side panels to remove standing waves.

– Variable thickness (up to 31mm) cabinet panels for rigidity and neutrality with an optimized volume for accurate loading of the woofers.

– Magnets to hold the front grill. When speakers are being used without grills, the front panel is free from pins or holes that can create diffraction effects, for greater purity of sound and aesthetics.

– The bass-reflex port is positioned at the bottom end of the enclosure and fires vertically. It, therefore, reduces the creation of standing waves and provides a very efficient and linear extension of the low frequencies thanks to a 360? radiation close to the floor.

– The spikes delivered with the Iroise 3 are discrete but efficient. They allow a fine and easy adjustment of the speaker?s stability by means of an Allen key once the chrome-plated caps are pulled out.
