Miniature spheres only 4 inches in diameter, the Alcyone 2 satellites feature all the acoustical qualities of any Cabasse system : efficiency, power handling, transparency and stability of the sound stage. The Alcyone 2 satellite has a new wide bandwith high-efficiency driver for acoustic linearity, high output, and full spatial coherency, just like the rest of the Cabasse spherical line. This driver has been designed in the Cabasse Acoustic Center in France especially for the small spherical Alcyone enclosure.
Alcyone 2 satellites either can be placed on a shelf, mounted on the wall, or afixed atop the optionals stands. The magnetic base can be used for shelf or wall mounting so the speaker can be easily oriented in any direction for ulimate flexibility in placement. The Alcyone 2 5.1 system consists of one Santorin 17M2 subwoofer (7″ woofer and 100 W amplifier), 5 satellites ready for bookshelf or on-wall use, and a complete set of interconnect cables.
