At first glance the S1 Mk II may appear similar to its predecessor. However, it is entirely redesigned, and incorporates distilled elements of our most recent and ground breaking engineering accomplishments. The design platform of the S1 Mk II features core technologies that are unique to Magico –an all aluminum enclosure, and proprietary driver design that outperforms any other driver available today.
The monocoque enclosure of the S1 Mk II is formed from a single piece of extruded aluminum that is 3/8″ thick and 12″ in diameter. The slender enclosure is supported internally by a new innovative bracing technique along with advanced damping materials and glues that minimize resonance and maximize structural rigidity and stability. A massive new top plate is machined into an elegant 3D convex shape to minimize enclosure diffraction and break-up vertical standing waves.
Detailed and extended high frequencies are provided by the newly designed 1-inch Diamond coated Beryllium diaphragm tweeter – first introduced in the S7 – that offers matching sensitivity, wide dispersion and high power handling. A robust motor system and long throw voice coil enables lower distortion and cutoff frequencies never achieved before.
Captivating mid-bass performance is provided by a newly designed 7-inch mid bass driver that incorporates Mutli-Wall carbon nanotube and Nanographene which combined is 20% lighter and 300% stiffer than the previous cone material used in the original S1. A new underhung neodymium base motor system substantially increases the S1 Mk2 power handling.
A massive new top plate is machined into an elegant 3D convex shape to minimize enclosure diffraction and break-up vertical standing waves. Newly designed 4-point outrigger assembly supports the S1 Mk II enclosure and optimizes overall performance. The S1 Mk II is available a new M-Cast finish and the luxurious M-Coat painted finish.
