The F1 series crossover is a no-compromise design, hand built onto vibration damping fibreboard panels using the world’s finest electronic components and cables and fine tuned to deliver truly class-leading performance. Leaning on decades of premium loudspeaker design experience, the design team refined the component list through finite element analysis, computer modelling, measurement and critical auditioning by Fyne’s top engineering and acoustic personnel.
The component roster includes low loss LF laminated core inductors, non-inductive thick film resistors and Claritycap’s highest grade HF polypropylene capacitors. Neotech ™ PC-OCC internal wiring provides highly transparent signal transfer, connecting to the loudspeaker cable through WBT Nextgen™ gold plated bi-wire terminals. Once fully assembled and tested, every F1 crossover is Deep Cryogenically Treated. This super freezing and slow thawing process relieves microstresses in components, wiring and solder joints, maximising signal transfer and delivering greater transparency to the sound.
Further F1 series refinements include a fifth earth terminal that grounds the driver chassis to prevent radio frequency interference effects from masking fine detail. For seamless room integration, HF output controls are available on the front baffle of F1 series models, offering user adjustment of high frequency energy and presence.
The F1-10 distils Fyne Audio’s decades of HiFi point source loudspeaker expertise into a design of breath-taking acoustic performance and eye-watering beauty. Its 250mm (10″) IsoFlare driver and twin cavity BassTrax ported cabinet deliver bass down to 28Hz while the 75mm titanium dome compression tweeter offers seamless, time aligned HF response to over 26kHz. The F1-10’s very high sensitivity (94dB/W) ensures exceptional dynamic range and compatibility with the widest range of amplifiers from single ended triode valve models to the highest power solid state designs. The BassTrax porting and high quality potentiometer controls for HF energy and presence ensure the F1-10 will deliver optimum performance irrespective of room size or placement. Available in traditional lacquered burr walnut finish with plinth top, the F1-10 offers exemplary finish and a bold statement in loudspeaker design for the audiophile.
