Magico M7: New awesome and powerful floorstanding speaker
Tech Week score:
In June 2020, the Californian company Magico introduced its flagship M9 speaker systems. Everything that was developed in the process of creating these extraordinary speakers is now embodied in Magico M 7 , standing at the second stage of the company’s lineup. The M7 was conceived by Magico founder and CEO Alon Wolf as a more affordable version of the semi-active M9. Magico’s engineering team was tasked with creating a completely passive Magico M7.
The Magico M 7 is a four-way, six-speaker floorstanding speaker system with a carbon fiber and aluminum body and a cutting-edge crossover. The new product is equipped with an improved tweeter and midrange speaker, powerful midbass speakers and a pair of 12-inch bass drivers. The M7 uses a tweeter designed for the M9. This high-frequency driver uses a 28mm beryllium diaphragm with optimized geometry. The diaphragm is then coated with diamond using a chemical vapor deposition process to bring the beryllium substrate even closer to the theoretical ideal.
The mid-range driver in the M7 is equipped with a 5-inch diameter cone made of proprietary eighth-generation Nano-Tec material. The material consists of an aluminum honeycomb core surrounded by outer and inner layers of carbon fiber impregnated with graphene. The improved cone is supported by a new basket design, an innovative foam surround, and a new neodymium magnet system.
The 9-inch Magico M7 mid-bass drivers use a new basket design along with an eighth-generation Magico Nano-Tec cone. These speakers feature a 127mm voice coil and a magnetic system with dual large neodymium magnets. The ventilated pure titanium voice coil frame ensures stable cone movement over a range of +/-13mm. This highly sensitive driver is capable of delivering a sound pressure of 120 dB at a distance of 1 m across the entire operating frequency range. The new 12-inch M7 bass driver also uses a new basket design and a Magico Nano-Tec Gen 8 cone. This driver also has a 127mm voice coil.
The Magico M7 speaker enclosure is a carbon fiber monocoque with a 6061-T6 aluminum front panel, designed to provide minimal internal resonance and near-silent operation. The significance of this model for the company is emphasized by a chrome plate with Alon Wolf’s signature on the back wall of each speaker housing.
