Sur le pont d’Avignon

Initially designed for use at the Avignon Festival – and used within the Courtyard of the Palace of the Popes each summer – Amadeus has released its hi-fi-grade Avignon Columns series, starting with the A 470, available in Straight, Focus and Wide versions.

Each A 470 module is 80cm x 28cm (HxW) and houses 14 transducers. Therefore, each speaker incorporates four internal sections, including four 6.5-inch long-excursion loudspeakers – co-developed with the Danish brand PURIFI – as well as four planar ribbons placed in front of the low/midrange section and six 8-inch diameter long-excursion passive radiators. The proprietary waveguide for the bass/midrange transducers also works as a closed-back load for the planar ribbons. Each section features a linear-phase FIR crossover filter with a steep Brickwall-type slope at 1,000Hz offering a combination of both “power and finesse” for the planar ribbon drivers across their entire frequency range, while also protecting them from low frequencies. The nominal directivity of a loudspeaker in the horizontal plane is 100° on average.

The Straight column module features a straight enclosure design; the Focus column module features a 1° enclosure angle and a 1° dispersion in the vertical plane; and the Wide column module features a 4° enclosure angle and a 4° dispersion in the vertical plane.

The off-axis response of the Avignon Columns above 600Hz, measured onsite at the Avignon Courtyard of the Palace of the Popes, is within ±1.5dB. The length of each line array – around 4m corresponding to a wavelength of 85Hz – favours a directivity effect and the natural range of the bass.
