The Ø Audio Icon is a high-efficiency speaker that is easy to drive even for low-powered tube amplifiers. They are recommended to be used with amplifiers from around 8w depending on the setup and room size!
The Icon has a unique asymmetrical design with no parallel walls. This gives very little resonance and also reduces the problems with reflecting sound waves inside the cabinet.
Ø Audio only uses top-of-the-line components all the way in our products. We use custom-designed woofers from Acoustic Elegance, Italian-made compression drivers, crossover components from Duelund and Jantzen, and enclosures handcrafted in Poland.
The Icon has a controlled directivity! The horn has a directivity of 60 degrees horizontally, which is narrower than many other HiFi speakers. This results in fewer reflections from sidewalls, which makes a better and more precise soundstage.
High-efficiency horn speaker designed to be as balanced and natural sounding as possible.
Because of its high impendance (minimum 8ohm) and a 93db sensitivity, it can be used with low power tube amplifiers with good success, but it can also be used with more power amplifiers if you like more capacity and higher listening levels.
The Icon has a special asymmetrical cabinet design with no parallel walls. This gives very little resonances and also reduces the problems with reflecting soundwaves inside the cabinbet. The horn and driver layout is made to make the icon have a controlled directivity to make it easier to integrate in normal rooms.
