The Lithuanian company AudioSolutions presented a new generation of popular floor-standing speaker systems Figaro XL, which received the index 2 in the name. The AudioSolutions Figaro XL2 is a dramatically redesigned 3-way floor-standing speaker system with advanced technologies developed for AudioSolutions’ flagship speaker. The first generation of this model was introduced more than six years ago.
Figaro XL2 is equipped with a modernized soft dome tweeter in a mini-horn design. ER paper cones are used for midrange and bass drivers. The speakers have a maximally expanded mid-frequency range, which extends from 400 Hz to 4 kHz, which allows the cross-linking points of the bands to be moved beyond the frequency spectrum that is most sensitive to the human ear, thereby improving sound quality. According to one of the creators of Figaro XL2 and owner of AudioSolutions Gediminas Gaidelis, this solution improves the perception of the sound of multi-way acoustics, and the listener receives “uniform, continuous sound emanating from one speaker, with almost zero phase shift.”
One of the significant innovations of the second generation of acoustics was the use of AudioSolutions cabinet-in-cabinet technology , developed for Virtuoso acoustic systems. This body assembly method is also used in the flagship model The Vantage.
“Our cabinet-in-cabinet technology eliminates virtually all vibrations through the skillful use of a light and rigid inner housing with an inert and heavy outer housing, separated by a polyurethane damping layer,” emphasizes Gediminas Gaidelis, founder of AudioSolutions .
AudioSolutions Figaro XL2 speakers are available in seven different Bespoke Trim colors, including metallic brass accents, as well as a contemporary matte speaker finish that pairs perfectly with neutral living spaces. After some time, glossy finishes will also be offered.
Recommended retail prices for AudioSolutions Figaro XL2 speaker systems in Europe range from 20 to 25 thousand euros per pair of speakers, depending on the finish.
