What makes the Devialet Phantom an Engineering Marvel?
The Phantom looks like no other speaker in the market, with a sound that is unlike any other speaker on the market as well.
The Phantom is a single cabinet speaker with an external skin fabricated from a thick wall of ABS plastic that surrounds an inner skin of glass-fiber polycarbonate. This, in turn, is wrapped around an aluminum core. You can play the speaker at any volume and you’ll never feel the cabinet vibrate or hear it resonate. Each of its four drivers is completely isolated from the enclosure.
The Phantom is a three-way speaker system consisting of two eight-inch woofers, a one-inch tweeter, and a “ring” mid-range transducer encircling the tweeter that devialet says is equivalent to five-inch midrange. The woofers are mounted on either side of the cabinet in a push-push configuration in order to cancel each other’s vibration. Motorized domes over the woofers displace air to reproduce extremely low frequencies. These look very strange as they pulsate in and out to the beat of the music, but Devialet says the motors enable the Phantom to deliver bass response all the way down to 16Hz.
The tweeter is located in the front of the speaker, behind a lattice grill, and the mid-range completely encircles the tweeter. All four drivers are fabricated from aluminum. Each of the four drivers has its own dedicated amplification channel, formed by one bridged Class A amplifier and two bridged Class D amplifiers for each driver. That is four Class A amplifiers and eight Class D amplifiers in total
The Phantom, although being a mono speaker, is able to use digital signal processing that “ automatically figures out the best mix, for each piece of music, to deliver the best possible experience from a single acoustic source.
