The new S5 Mk II silhouettes its predecessor however that is where any similarity ends. Significant performance enhancements are realized with the implementation of new and advanced transducer and enclosure designs which have been distilled from the extensive engineering research devoted to the S7.
A newly designed 1-inch Magico Diamond coated Beryllium diaphragm tweeter provides smooth and extended high frequencies along with matching sensitivity, wide dispersion and increased power handling. A robust motor system and long-throw voice coil design enables lower distortion and cutoff frequencies that enhance driver integration with the midrange driver.
A higher benchmark of measured midrange performance is achieved with a newly designed 6-inch Magico driver that is formed of Mutli-Wall carbon and Nanographene. The combined result of these two cutting-edge materials creates a new cone that is 20% lighter and 300% stiffer than the cone used in the S5. A purpose built sub-enclosure made of a proprietary polymer material provides an acoustically optimized rear chamber for the midrange to operate within. The sub-enclosure concept was first introduced in the S3 and provides noticeable enhancements in midrange control and articulation.
