Chario Constellation Pegasus - Floorstanding Speaker
Like its mythical namesake, the Pegasus is muscular when necessary and gentle when required. Effortlessly resolving high, mid-range and low frequencies within an exceptional soundstage, the Pegasus was built to soar with any musical genre. The emission angle of the tweeter is 60°, while the subwoofer driver is omnidirectional (360°). The angle of emission of the woofer placed on the front at 170 Hz , which is the point of intersection with the subwoofer, preserves the omni-directionality, decreasing in proportion to the intersection with the tweeter. The binding posts of the speaker are gold-plated with a protective cage of transparent plastic, and are isolated by two O-rings and a resin plate for total isolation
The Pegasus model is a three-way floorstanding speaker with the T-38 tweeter and a 160mm woofer on the front of the speaker, while another 160mm woofer with a bass reflex is placed at the bottom of the speaker, acting as a subwoofer. The location of all drivers is already defined in the design stage, and this enables accurate tuning of the relationship between the speaker and the listening-room. The subwoofer reduces the stress of the woofer, dealing with the first eighth of the audio spectrum, extending the frequency response to 45Hz.
NEAR REFLECTIVE SURFACE
The principle NRS exploits the proximity of the supporting surface and the structure of the speaker to increase the performance of the subwoofer . The frequencies emitted by the subwoofer using this principle lower distortion, since double efficiency is attained by halving the displacement of its membrane . The system applied to the Pegasus model is devoted entirely to reproduce frequencies between 50 and 170 Hz. As a result, NRS achieves double sound pressure (gain of 3dB) for the same distortion.
