Big blue Magico S7


Magico has announced a new addition to its S-Series loudspeaker line – the S7. The S7 is a full range, three-way design, floor standing loudspeaker that incorporates new tweeter, midrange and bass driver designs which are derived from those in the the M- Project loudspeaker. Towering over other S-Series models, the acoustic suspension enclosure of the S7 features curved side panels that are machined in-house from 12.5mm thick aluminum extrusions which are 406mm in diameter. Internal bracing is carefully positioned throughout the enclosure to minimize resonances and create an ideal operating environment.

The S7 houses three new 250mm bass drivers that have “extremely powerful” magnets and aluminum cones. The excursion rate of the voice coil is measured at 15mm linear movement and produces “clean and undistorted” sound pressure levels up to 120dB @ 50Hz / 1-meter. The midrange driver (150mm) in the S7 uses cone material that is formulated using Arkema Multi-Wall carbon nanotube and XG Sciences C-750 Nanographene which combined is 20% lighter and 300% stiffer than previous cone material designs. The underhung neodymium base motor system uses two extra-large magnets and a pure titanium voice coil. The driver operates in a purpose built sub-enclosure made of a proprietary polymer material that was first introduced in the S3.

The S7 incorporates a new (25mm) tweeter that features a diamond-coated beryllium diaphragm with optimized geometry, created using state-of-the-art Finite Element analysis modeling tools. This purpose built tweeter has extra-long excursion movement and uses a neodymium based motor system that is customized to match the sensitivity and power handling capabilities of the S7 while maintaining “ultra-wide dispersion characteristics and ultra-low distortion measurements”. All five drivers in the S7 are acoustically integrated using Magico’s exclusive Elliptical Symmetry Crossover topology that includes state-of-the-art components from Mundorf of Germany. The S7 stands 1.42m tall and weighs in at 136kg, it will be available in the US in July.
