Ball Speaker / Technology
I want my grandchildren to look at me in wonder when I tell them that, once upon a time, there were angular loudspeakers.
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.
