F300 & F500 Speakers From Fyne - The Audiophile Man
New F300 and F500 ranges of stand-mounted and floor standing speakers launched by the Scottish outfit The F300 range offers a choice of two stand-mount models, two floorstanders, a centre channel and dipole speaker. Rigidity is provided on all F300 models through a combination of MDF panels which are cross-braced internally. Additional stiffness is achieved by coupling the low frequency driver’s magnet to the cabinet bracing using a resonant absorbing mastic. Widening the footprint on the floor standing models, using a plinth with floor coupling spikes, provides “stability for tight bass and accurate stereo imaging”. Components used within the crossover, includes a low loss LF laminated core inductor and HF polypropylene capacitor. Gold-plated speaker terminals are included too while the F303 has bi-wire terminals. Constructed with a multifibre paper cone on the bass/midrange unit, the F300 driver is enhanced with FyneFlute technology. Used on the driver’s roll rubber surround, it provides a non-homogeneous interface which “effectively terminates cone energy”. The tweeter combines a Neodymium magnet system with a 25mm Polyester dome. The F500 series is based around an IsoFlare point source drive unit into a rigid cabinet, with a porting system. Floor standing models in the F500 series use a rigid MDF plinth with large floor coupling spikes. Additionally, the spikes can be adjusted from above …
