Cabasse MC 40 Minorca

The Hotell boxes manufacture Cabasse exists for 59 years, and but little as before, when founder Georges Cabasse was in sole charge still remained. The French outsource manufacturing, even the idiosyncratic chassis manufactured now from Canon, the Japanese group to which the boxes-Bauer from Brest now belong. That however, in France.

  2. Data sheet

The closer one is engaged in inconspicuous compact boxes the three, from a distance, the more interest awakens their sophisticated technology. This applies in particular to the Cabasse MC 40 Minorca which is available in dark or medically vision in something beige. Who takes a look behind the aperture, discovered a French specialty, that promises exclusive enjoyment. Cabasse comes in this class with a real 3-way construction.
So not enough: Processed a coaxial chassis, its midrange cone without the usually glued bead comes off the mid-Highrange. A small fold in the ultra lightweight plastic cone provides the necessary freedom of movement while maintaining stability over a long period of time.
The membranes are, with the exception of the tweeter, the plastic Duocell – a thermoplastic deformed Rohacell foamy mass, the Toni about of the German audio trade sales certified she was “as light as a feather and as stable as crispbread.” The stabilization effect is based on unequal large air pockets, as in human bone. The basic material of Rohacell is due to his exemplary properties in the automotive and aircraft construction, in the wings of the Airbus A 340, used.
The production of a single membrane takes 15 minutes, given a low-mass and yet resilient material, which builds a bridge to the professional systems of brand together with equally efficient as robust drives Cabasse however. With the broadband Horn loudspeakers for the French aircraft carrier “Charles de Gaulle”, the company from Brest finally set standards for loudness and efficiency.
Cabasse in Brest in 2003 established an Acoustics Research Centre involving colleges and universities, where it was also the optimization of transition between tweeters and Midranges to the coax chassis. The shape of the mounting plate of the tweeter minimizes the mutual influence of two chassis on axle-mounted in conjunction with the small displacement of the mid-bass. So, Cabasse wants to refine in the MC-40 series frequency response and dispersion of point sound source.
The externally rather inconspicuous Cabasse could beat the impressive strengths of the rival and still more succinctly work out fine details such as reverberation. With her sounds were still more flashy and swung out even more realistic. Thus, the French produced a sharp picture of the respective recording room. And the best part: the Minorca was easily and completely relaxed about. With the same nonchalance with which their countrymen of Gauloises puffing away, the Cabasse traced instruments.
Their honesty in spatial and tonal terms like in the excellent resolution inevitably reminded Studio monitors, which cost many times over. The performance was so exciting and authentic, that she quickly sat down at the top of this strong test field.
Only in the deep bass, the Heco could throw more substance in the pan. But the Minorca charming überspielte her only drawback with concentration on their dynamic core virtues. She was swinging low notes although slightly slimmer, but extremely precise, and crisp. In practice, these supported perfect timing-based voting, the emotional experience of the music. Performance one drew even more completely captivated, whether classical or pop were on the agenda.
A proverbial firework had ignited so some Cabasse in the listening room, the Centre high-frequency unit of Minorca sounded but free and open and completely took the slightly stringent flavour of earlier vintages. This combination took her the test victory.
This also meets the highest requirements in terms of sound color fidelity and resolution spatially especially wide and high over beyond the boxes, raised by the transducers playback. In conjunction with a fun unique in this class these virtues make the 3-way cabinet not only a winner on points. With the Cabasse Minorca, even well saturated contemporaries yaw then actively listen to live at home after concerts to music. Ultimately, the message of the music, which must prevail in the MP3 era against environmental noise and optical sensory overload WINS.
