Ball Speaker / Technology

Ideal Stereo Imaging

Ball Speakers allow impressive stereo imaging. This means an imaginary sound space, like a three-dimensional stage, on which the location of each performer can be clearly located. The spherical shape makes this possible: it has no edges or corners so that almost no direct sound is lost and the acoustic space is expanded. The listener experiences music in the entire room, not just in front of the speakers. The advantages are obvious: authentic spatial sound, all voices are present in the room.

Round inside

A sphere has no corners and parallel walls inside, either. So interferences – sound waves getting in each other’s way – are minimised. You experience spacial sound.

Clear, clean and precise.

Porcelain: high density – low resonance

Porcelain has the second highest hardness of any bulk material, which makes them almost as hard as diamonds. Hard materials have very low self-oscillation. So why is it so important? Speaker casings are not like instruments which need a body in order to sound. In a loudspeaker, the oscillation comes from the membrane. Only the membrane is supposed to move. It merely disturbs the sound experience if the casing moves, too.
Our ball speakers are seamless and absolutely homogenous. Nothing is bolted or glued.

How the casing shapes frequency response

Edges and parallel walls refract and reflect sound. Contrarily, the spherical shape is ideal for the casings of our porcelain ball speakers because they provide for a smooth and steady frequency response.
The sound pattern is three-dimensional, clear and clean.

The Point Source

Broadband loudspeakers inside a ball speaker are the perfect point source. The entire frequency spectrum is transmitted from one single chassis rather than from several sources located at different distances from each other. This way, the sound waves keep a level distance to the listener. Spatial sound is improved massively.

Porcelain: material for perfectionists

Porcelain is the only material that fulfills Ronald Jaklitsch’s high demands. It possesses the ideal qualities for a loudspeaker casing: its non-porous structure, high density and hardness make for a porcelain speaker ideal for creating an extra clear sound pattern.
