So, are you ready to get to know VIGO closer?
Our enclosure is what makes our loudspeakers unique. Meticulously designed for full-range drivers to maintain the maximum of the efficiency without adding colors to the sound. Made of premium quality Baltic birch ply with no damping materials at all. The complicated internal construction containing carefully designed channels ensures the enclosure stiffness. The standing waves are virtually eliminated that results in a very clean and fast bass response. No need for using any damping materials behind the drivers preserves the liveliness of the drivers especially in the midrange. Side panels can be made of acrylic stone for additional enclosure damping of parasite resonances.
Vigo uses one of the best full-range drivers in the world, the EMS LB12 (31 cm diameter) designed by French legend Mr. Michel Fertin, who devoted his life to perfecting the sound of the single driver wide band technology. These are handmade in France by Katy Fertin EMS Speaker.
The differences between the two are hard to measure but are easily to hear comparing the two loudspeakers. The field coil version presents even more detailed sound while the classic version is felt and sometimes is described as easier and more relaxed.
Because the LB12 full-range drivers have the upper frequency scaled to almost 16kHz an optional tweeter designed by EMS for this purpose can complement Vigo. It extends the frequency range close to 20kHz allowing for more “air” to be present in the listening experience.
Vigo can be finished with paint and veneer on the sides for the classic version. The EX version is additionally finished with acrylic stone on the sides. Also instead of paint Vigo can be finished with Alcantara and acrylic stone on the sides. The colors of acrylic stone and Alcantara can be customized accordingly to the available manufacturer output.
