BC-10 coaxial midrange tweeter
Developed from the TC23, the three-way co-axial driver fitted to the top of the range speakers, including the
flagships “La Sphère” and “l’Océan”, the BC10 offers a faithful reproduction of timbres with no artificial coloration
or lassitude in long listening, and provides a soundstage with unrivaled realism and depth in this price segment.
Duocell cone woofers
The 17 cm (7”) woofers of Java are fitted with a Duocell cone designed by Cabasse and manufactured by Cabasse
robots. The very light, but rigid and nicely damped membrane has an exponential profile and variable thickness,
to obtain the most of long throw systems and powerful magnets. They bring the full precision and vivacity
required for high fidelity, true to live, sound.
Cross-overs with variable slopes
The Cabasse development protocol combines numerous measurements in an anechoic room, combining on-axis
and 360° results. It guarantees a perfect control of both the directivity index and the total radiated power all
along the frequency bandwidth to match the SCS principles. It is a key process, together with listening sessions,
in the development of the cross-over boards. The slopes can vary from 6 to 24 dB per octave for an optimal
acoustical phasing, taking into account the influence of the external shape of the enclosure to optimise the
qualities of the co-axial drive-units.
Technology and elegance
The enclosure of Java looks like its acoustical signature, pure and simple, free from any artificial appendix.
Elegance outside, lots of technical solutions inside such as:
– Non-parallel side panels to remove standing waves – Variable thickness (up to 31mm) cabinet panels for rigidity
and neutrality with an optimised volume for accurate loading of the woofers.
– Magnets to hold the front grill. When speakers are being used without grills, front panel are free from pins or
holes that can create diffraction effects, for a greater purity of sound and aesthetics.
– The bass-reflex port is positioned at the bottom end of the enclosure and fires vertically. It therefore reduces
the creation of standing waves and provides a very efficient and linear extension of the low-frequencies thanks
to a 360° radiation close to the floor.
– The cones delivered with the Java are discrete but efficient. They allow a fine and easy adjustment of the
