Gato Audio FM-50
FM-50 - 3-way Passive Floorstanding Speaker
This uncompromised big three-way loudspeaker offers immense dynamics, a perfect power response and a soundstage to die for!
A Soundstage Projector
Two 6” optimised dedicated bass drivers and a total volume of 50 liters are the basis of the superb performance of this grand floorstanding loudspeaker. The FM-50 will impress you in all disciplines; it has a super tight bass response, a smooth detailed and dynamic midrange together with a crisp clear resonance free treble. Best of all; it offers unparalleled coherency and soundstage projection precision.
With this speaker we did not just set out to create a great loudspeaker. We set out to create a “soundstage projector” that would simply disappear in the world of great music and great recordings. It can reproduce any instrument in a lifelike and dynamic way, but also transport the listener to the emotion, acoustic environment and energy of the venue where the music was recorded.
Custom Made Drivers
We develop and adapt each driver for its own specific purpose in every individual speaker model, combining our own team’s wealth of experience together with some of the leading transducer engineers in Denmark. With our approach of developing and adapting the driver to our desired performance and design needs, we benefit from not having to compromize our sonic and visual performance and can simply deliver a better sounding product.
Since the invention of the loudspeaker back in 1925, not much has visually changed to the naked eye - and from the outside, most speakers still look very similar. However, developments during the last decade in the use of high-tech materials, optimized magnet systems, low memory rubber surrounds and mineral filled cones are some of the technologies that we are fully taking advantage of to reach our goal of a perfect sonic perfomance.
FusedMASS Cabinet Technology
The multilayer construction of the Gato Audio FusedMASS cabinet ensures extremely high internal damping, a minimum of resonances and providing extra strength and material stability. By laminating different materials in different thicknesses and adding a special glue, we have intelligently removed the resonance problem that otherwise normally have been approached by just adding more and more material.
PurePHASE Crossover Technology
With our PurePHASE crossover designs we focus on three major technical aspects that seamlessly combines our state-of-the-art transducer designs into a truly outstanding loudspeaker system. Beside the usual job of a crossover - dividing the correct frequencies for each individual driver – the PurePHASE system also provides exact acoustic phase control, low linear group delay and wide linear dispersion too. This crossover technology was developed in house specifically for our FM loudspeaker range.
Lossless Crossover Adjustment
Another special feature of our FM speaker range is the opportunity for the listener to adjust or customise the sonic performance of the loudspeaker. Not only does this gentle sonic adjustment enable the listener to adapt the speaker to their own specific taste, amplifier or listening room – it also ensures that no details are lost and that the listener retains the full, rich original sound.
