Fyne Audio

200 years of experience

The seven-person team at Scottish loudspeaker manufacturer FYNE AUDIO brings a combined 200 years of experience in the audio industry.
Further, efforts are underway to attract new talent to the company. What is needed here are collaborative experts who will work with passion and creative ability to design and manufacture an exceptional line of high-performance loudspeakers.

FYNE AUDIO's development department is based in Scotland. The men behind FYNE AUDIO have been working together for more than ten years, some even longer. We expect new and groundbreaking findings in the future as well, realized with state-of-the-art technology, as they have been used to since the company was founded.

The technology of FYNE AUDIO loudspeakers

This long experience in acoustics and manufacturing technology, in the service of loudspeaker production, could be further refined after the foundation of the company and materializes in the development of new technologies for the highest quality standard regardless of the price category.

The FYNE AUDIO IsoFlare™ chassis is a point source with a coaxial arrangement of woofer and tweeter. Such a design provides precise stereophonic imaging with uniform dispersion at constant directivity; sound appears to come from a single point in the room in a focused manner.

BASSTRAX™ Reflex System with Tractrix Curve.

The tractrix curve is always perpendicular to the wavefront and is therefore immune to interfering reflections. The new type of low-frequency sound control makes placement in the room less problematic.

FYNEFLUTE™ edge clamping

FYNE AUDIO has left no stone unturned in optimizing the models' features in all areas. One of the new solutions is the improved clamping of the speaker cones where the detrimental properties of conventional rubber surrounds on the sound are avoided.
To the point

FYNE AUDIO's IsoFlare™ driver technology is a point source design that coaxially places a tweeter in the center of a woofer cone. Because of the shape of the diaphragm, the design allows for excellent stereophonic imaging even off-axis due to uniform dispersion with constant directivity. These are the salient features of a point source.

Acoustical Development

Dr. Paul Mills, technical director of Fyne Audio, has extensive experience in this field. He is supported by other staff members responsible for sonic results and mechanical design, who also have expertise gained over many years.
Material selection

To optimize the performance of the loudspeakers, every single design step is carefully considered. For example, the drivers are made of particularly rigid die-cast aluminum to avoid unwanted resonances that would disrupt the sound image. Paper cones made of a fiber mass ensure particularly natural midrange reproduction and clean impulse processing.

Small measures - big effect

A ventilated chamber in the neodymium magnet behind the tweeter diaphragm moves the natural resonance well below the crossover frequency. In contrast, the "break up" region is clearly above the human hearing range, so that the stiff titanium diaphragm has a balanced frequency response in the transmission range. The sophisticated geometry of the Wave Guide for the tweeter supports this even frequency response and suppresses internal reflections.
The how and why of BassTrax™ Sound Guide.

Bookshelf and floorstanding loudspeakers, from the F500 series to the top-of-the-line F1, feature a downward-firing reflex port, with floorstanding models also featuring a dual-chamber enclosure. This extends the effective frequency range and reduces diaphragm excursion, while at the same time the arrangement acts as a sound absorber by preventing standing waves in the reflex tube.

Perfect room adaptation

A patent-pending tractrix-shaped sound distributor is located below the reflex port, distributing the energy of the radiation evenly in all directions in the room.

BassTrax™ tractrix sphere

This contour has been used for horn loudspeakers as far back as the 1920s by Paul Voight, but its application as a sound distributor is a novelty in our view. The mathematical curve is known for the property that the wave fronts are always perpendicular to the contour, so reflections are avoided and the speaker is not critical when placed in the room.

All things are not equal

Special attention has also been paid to resonance reduction in the design of the surrounds. Energy can be reflected back to the diaphragm at certain frequencies if the clamping is symmetrical. The FyneFlute™ technology provides a non-homogeneous
