Magico just announced the unveiling of its newest loudspeaker, the Magico Q1: a 2-way stand-mounted monitor housed in a fully-braced, fully-damped, aluminum and copper, hard-anodized enclosure. The Q1 features a complete new set of Magico- designed drivers including a new 7" Nano-Tec woofer that has been developed to deliver reportedly improved system efficiency and greater power handling, allowing the Q1 to be powered by amplifiers with as few as 50 Watts.
Driver development has yielded two new drive units allowing for better power handling and an additional 7Hz of bass extension than the Mini II, according to Magico. Continued research into the damping mechanism used in the Q platform has also resulted in addressing the common problem of resonance in the stand mount. Instead of attempting to add mass to the stand and decoupling the speaker, the Q1 is directly coupled and the stand itself is a damping mechanism.
According to Magico, the outcome of their work is a compact, convertible stand-mounted/bookshelf loudspeaker with explosive, true full-range performance.
