Product Description

Audio Physic Cardeas Loudspeakers

What is the essence of the revolutionary? Truly revolutionary things endure those that ignite a lasting effect not those that rebel in a short-lived spectacular way. This is how Audio Physic define a real revolution. It is the consequence of Audio Physic's countless small evolutionary and innovative steps.

The new Cardeas includes multiple breakthroughs that have never yet seen the light of day. This suite of innovative components truly sets the music free, and this is what Audio Physic call the Audio Physic PowerTrain.

Audio Physic are very proud to present the sum of their research with the new Cardeas. It has been redeveloped from scratch to get the most out of the PowerTrainTM and to deliver unparalleled sound performance.

Imagine a landscape so vast you can hardly see the edges yet the moment you turn your attention to a specific spot, you see every detail.
Welcome to the sound of Audio Physic's new Cardeas speakers limitless soundstage. Pinpoint accuracy.

To make those details audible, Audio Physic dived deep into the smallest details of their technologies. Years of development went into all components of the Cardeas until the result has finally satisfied Audio Physic. As has always been true in Audio Physics history, they were not looking to add features for the sake of making a high-tech product: its the sound that matters. And if the sound is not good enough, Audio Physic believe there must be a better solution and Audio Physic set out on a quest to find it.


Multi-layer sandwich honeycomb enclosure
The Cardeas is a four-way speaker with Audio Physic's new multi-layer sandwich enclosure. Inside, the asymmetrical enclosure consists of a high-tech honeycomb / multiplex sandwich. The outside is clad with a compound construction of glass and elastomer layers. This makes the chamber incredibly rigid with high internal damping. The internal bracing is fabricated from the same honeycomb panels.

HHCT III+ Tweeter
The Cardeas has a separate tweeter sub-enclosure for decoupling the new HHCT III+ tweeter and crossover from the cabinet.

Midrange HHCM SL and Double Surround bass / mid-bass driver
The new Audio Physic HHCM SL midrange and the new Double Surround woofers and mid-bass drivers are all designed to work without a centering spider, avoiding the non-linearity inherent in conventional driver designs.

Audio Physic have further revised the contacts for the tweeter and midrange driver and equipped them with WBT Plasma Protect connectors. Even Audio Physic's VCT technology has been given a makeover: it now includes improved WBT pole terminals as well as newly developed capacitors that feature an improved foamed copper lattice for a low-impedance connection.

With the spiderless drivers at its heart, the new Audio Physic PowerTrain efficiently transfers the kinetic energy in ways never before imagined, creating outstanding music quality that must be heard to be believed.

4-Way Design
The 4-way speaker features four different drivers that share reproduction of the entire frequency range. One or more subwoofers, one or more woofers, a midrange and a tweeter. Usually the crossover frequency between subwoofer and woofer is set at around 100Hz, while low and mid frequencies are separated between 250Hz and 400Hz, and the crossover frequency between midrange and tweeter is normally set at 2,000Hz to 3,000Hz.

Sandwich Cabinet Construction
Audio Physic's unique Sandwich Cabinets are an innovative way to stop the speaker cabinet from developing an acoustical life of its own. It is especially effective with Audio Physic's stylish glass-finished speakers as the relatively high weight of the glass panels helps dampening the cabinet even better.

VCT Vibration Control Terminal
Unwanted vibrations have negative effects on sound quality wherever they occur in the signal path. Because AUDIO PHYSIC has made it their mission to fight unwanted vibration and resonance whenever and wherever they occur, the fully decoupled VIBRATION CONTROL TERMINAL (VCT) has been devised.

Invisible Subwoofer
Some of Audio Physic's speakers feature an internal woofer inside the cabinet provides the same deep bass and punch as an additional subwoofer without anyone ever having to see it.

Ceramic Foam Bracing
Ceramic Foam is a high-tech material used for internal bracing in many of Audio Physic's speakers. It is much stiffer than MDF although it consists of 85% air. This means, the room taken up by the internal bracing is also part of the effective volume of air the drivers need to work. By using Ceramic Foam, Audio Physic can build loudspeakers that match and out-perform much bulkier speakers.

Push-Push Configuration
Some of the side-mounted woofers in Audio Physic's 3-way and 31/2-way speakers are arranged in a Push-Push configuration in which the forces exerted on the cabinet by the two woofers cancel each other out, avoiding the introduction of vibrations that could harm sound quality.

Vibration Control Feet Magnetic standard
High End version of Audio Physic's VCF with even bigger improvement of sound performance as the speaker is completely decoupled from the floor by resting on a magnetic field. Also available as VCF Magnetic component for Hi-Fi separates.

Bi-Wiring/Bi-Amping optional
Most Audio Physic's speakers have a regular single-wiring terminal to avoid unnecessary metal or wire bridges that would harm sound quality when used in single-wiring configuration (Which is what most Hi-Fi fans actually use). However, an optional Bi-Wiring/Bi-Amping Terminal can usually be ordered with any new speaker. Retrofitting only on special request.
