At first glance the S1 Mk II may appear similar to its predecessor. However, it is entirely redesigned, and incorporates distilled elements of our most recent and ground breaking engineering accomplishments. The design platform of the S1 Mk II features core technologies that are unique to Magico: an all aluminum enclosure and proprietary driver diaphragm and motor design optimized with finite element analysis.
The monocoque enclosure of the S1 Mk II is formed from a single piece of extruded aluminum that is 3/8" thick and 12" in diameter. The slender enclosure is supported internally by a new innovative bracing technique along with advanced damping materials and glues that minimize resonance and maximize structural rigidity and stability. A massive new top plate is machined into an elegant 3D convex shape to minimize enclosure diffraction and break-up vertical standing waves.
