Bellatrix

Bellatrix

Design:

   

Bellatrix is a 2.5-way, 3-speaker system. The woofer and mid-woofer work in a joined volume constituted by a multi-chamber bass-reflex / TQWT system with ventilation at the bottom side. The multilayer enclosure is designed in the CRCdesign technology,  internally reinforced with a grating made of plywood and steel. A separate chamber for the tweeter has been designed. Mineral mats were used to dampen the enclosure precisely, so it was unnecessary to use other loose dampening materials. Bellatrix stands on a one-piece carbon steel pedestal integrated with the enclosure, equipped with our Kepler vibrations absorbing feet.

 

  

Transducers:

 

The tweeter of Bellatrix speakers is a silk  Scan-Speak Illuminator ring-radiator covered with a metal protective mesh. It is a version with a large damper chamber integrated with a vibration dampening system with CeraGem technology. The special subchassis construction makes the loudspeaker lean on a set of damping layers, analogous to those used in our Kepler  vibrations absorbing feet.

 

 

The mid-woofer and woofer are 7-inch modified Eton Orchestra drivers with a characteristically embossed cellulose diaphragm on a rubber suspension. The solid die-cast basket is equipped with our proprietary BAD dampening system. The massive magnet system is vented and grounded. The dust cover has a shape memory – it is resistant to dents. As a result, Bellatrix does not require protective grilles.

Crossover:

This is the most complex and advanced part of Bellatrix speakers. It has its own housing permanently attached to the main body of the speaker. During the design and construction of the crossover, SGP, ESM and RFpath technologies were used. All parts are mounted using the point-to-point method, on both sides of the multi-hole plate. The Bellatrix crossover consists of 51 top-quality components: copper Miflex KFPM-1, aluminum Jantzen Audio Alumen, foil Miflex MKP-10, Jantzen Audio Z-Superior and Z-Standard capacitors; Superes metallized non-inductive resistors, precision carbon resistors in correction circuits and cotton-insulated OFC coils. Solder connections are lead-free. The full repeatability of subsequent copies is ensured by the multi-stage measurement control of individual elements and all of connections.

Filter characteristics:

– woofer: 1st order slope with coil inductance compensation, cut-off frequency: ~ 250Hz;

– mid-woofer: 1st order slope with coil inductance compensation, precise baffle-step compensation, elliptical correction of diaphragm break-up resonances, cut-off frequency: ~ 2900Hz;

– tweeter: twin-path 2nd order slope with coil inductance compensation, cut-off frequency: ~ 2900Hz;

– internal cabling: Divine Acoustics Halley;

– connection: Divine Acoustics – Single uncoated copper binding posts, FDC compliant that accept Banana Connectors (BFA) and spades.

Finishes:

 

MOCCA is a combination of warm color of coffee with milk with raw and frosty shades of gray. The whole makes MOCCA perfect for rooms decorated in a Scandinavian style. The grains that are felt to the touch additionally emphasize the naturalness of the wood. The cool, frosty, unique finish effect has been achieved thanks to the minimizing of the yellow shades so characteristic of raw wood. The surface is satin finished, it diffuses light beautifully, giving the impression of velvety.

 

SMOKE is a noble color, a combination of a range of colors ranging from graphite and gray, through shades of navy blue with purple accents, and ending with dark, deep chocolate brown. This combination of colors makes Bellatrix fit both modern and more classic interiors. The multi-colored finish gives the effect of a smoky, “touched” with fire, not fully defined color of the wood. The texture showing the natural grain of the wood adds nobility. The surface is satin finished, it diffuses light beautifully, giving the impression of velvety.

SNAKEWOOD is a luxurious finish. Over 10 layers of hand-polished varnish create an exclusive, almost mirror-like surface. The unique pattern of the veneer is defined by winding vertical stripes in brown colors, beautifully changing in the light. SNAKEWOOD is a limited edition, only 10 pairs of Bellatrix will be made in this finish.
