Two iconic Italian brands, Sonus faber and Maserati, have joined forces to deliver an audio experience as luxurious as a cruise in a GranTurismo. Enter the Amati Folgore: a special edition speaker designed to marry the epitome of sound fidelity with Italian craftsmanship. This collaboration extends beyond just an audio equipment release; it signifies a harmonious blend of innovation, sustainability, and acoustic brilliance.

Unparalleled Listening Experience

The Amati Folgore represents Sonus faber's unmatched dedication to sound quality. The speaker is a fifth-generation model in the Amati series and is color-coded in Rame Folgore, akin to the Maserati GranTurismo. The intention is not merely to create a speaker but an "unparalleled listening experience," reflecting the grandeur of the Maserati GranTurismo.

The Genius Behind Materials

The speaker's front panel is made of ECONYL®, a unique material derived from recycled nylon waste. This eco-friendly material has also been used in Maserati's GranTurismo Folgore, marking it the first time ECONYL® is used in a car. The material undergoes an aesthetic transformation, achieving a highly matte surface with a parametric design, all thanks to a specialized laser processing technique.

Seamless and Refined Aesthetic

The speaker cabinet exhibits the Maserati trident and is dressed in the same GT Folgore finish as the car. The Rame Folgore color is a result of meticulous research on the interaction between light and color. Influenced by modern architecture, especially the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, the design evolves, capturing different hues as it interacts with the lighting of the surrounding environment.

Technical Mastery

But what's a gorgeous speaker without outstanding sound? The Amati Folgore is not just a pretty face; it's a marvel of acoustic engineering. Its 3.5-way speaker system is finely tuned, with a 28mm tweeter, a 150mm midrange, and two 220mm woofers. This produces a frequency response range from 28 Hz to 35,000 Hz, and a nominal impedance of 4 ohms.

Sustainability Meets Craftsmanship

Sonus faber is known for its commitment to the art of sound engineering. Each speaker undergoes rigorous testing, followed by hand tuning to perfect its natural sound. This commitment to acoustic purity has been carried through into the development of the Amati Folgore Special Edition, creating a listening experience that not only pleases the ear but also respects the planet.

An Iconic Collaboration

The Amati Folgore represents a unification of Maserati's boldness with Sonus faber's history of technical innovation. The Maserati logo is thoughtfully integrated within Sonus faber’s renowned VOS (Voice of Sonus faber), symbolizing the unity of two iconic Italian brands.
