StereoWise: Loudspeaker - Cabinet Made Of
As Standard. Most speaker cabinets are made of MDF or HDF, but developments have not stood still and now they are made from earthenware to sand and even from aluminium, the only question now arises, What will be the material for the Future?
Aluminium - Stenheim in Switserland - has made them. Aluminium is a chemical element with symbol AI and atomic number 13, it was discoverd in 1807 by Humphry Davy.Economically it is a very important material, aluminium is light ( 1/3 of steel ) and with 4 % copper, 1 % magnesium, 1 % manganese and 0,5 % silicion resistant to wear and corrosion
Bamboo - Tri Art Audio in Canada - has made them. Bamboo wood is not real wood, but wood grass. Bamboo can be easily processed into sheet material. These sheets can be used in the same way as wooden carpentry panels. The largest bamboe species is giant bamboo "Dendrocalamus giganteus" that can grow up to 35 meters high.
CARBON - Wilson Beneech in England has made them. CARBON is a synonym for carbon fiber it consists of extremely thin 5 - 10 micron meters of carbon thin fibers, they are made of organic polymers. For Wilson Bensch the directly result was an innovative loudspeaker cabinet they named this component the Advanced Composite Technoloy ( A.C.T. ) monocoque.
Concrete - BetonArt in Germany has made them. Concrete is a building material composed of cement, water, sand and gravel or crushed stone. The grain size and the amount of the sand and cement effects its durabillity.
CORIAN #DuPont - ELIXIR in Germany has made them. Corian is a solid nonporous, homogeneous surfacing matereial, this material can be whatever you imagine it can be undulating, virtually seamless, organic shapes, bold effects of colours and translucency. Design with Breathtaking Presentation. Made of 1/3 PolyMethylMethAcryl ( PMMA ) & 2/3 Minerals ( ATH )
Cast Iron - JERN in Denmark has made them, Cast Iron is a cast alloy of iron, carbon (C 6), manganese (Mn 25), en silicium ( Si ) It is manufatured by remelting pig iron together with coke and lime in a dome oven. Because of the roughness of the surface, the appearance of a cast iron object is clearly recognizable as such.
Eternit - vonSCHLOO in Switzerland has made them. In 1903, Ludwig Hatschek gave the name Eternit for this mixture of cement, water, sand, and cellulose, derived from the Latin word Aeturnus which means Eternal or Infinite. The possibilities for this product are very diverse, from Rooftop to Loudspeakers.
Glass - Waterfall in France has made them. Glass can form naturally from Volcanic Magma ( Obsidian ) Glass is a non - crystalline, often transparent amorphous solid that has widespread practical technological use. The most familiar types of manufactured glass are "silicate"glasses based on the chemical compound silica ( silicon diode or quartz )
KRION - KROMA in Spain has made the. KRION is a material that is warm to touch and similair to natural stone. It is made of two - thirds natural minerals ( ATH - Aluminium Trihydrate ) and a low percentage of high resistance resu.This solid - surface material is the answer to DuPonts Corian.
