FinkTeam Kim Loudspeaker:
FinkTeam Kim Loudspeaker: FinkTeam made it their own way again! Simply a loudspeaker that they would use themselves. Something which they could have fun on, designing a speaker for themselves as honest music listeners.
Defining a new model for a relatively new company in the market place is always challenging. With Borg FinkTeam made their second model a success by having innovation with the Kim loudspeaker.
Due to the low height of the design the loudspeaker is tilted on its dedicated stand. This ensures that in a normal listening position the soundstage has the correct height and size. There is still the ability to adjust the angle in case the listener is closer or further away from the speakers. As the stand is so important for the final sound it comes together with the speaker. The stand is made from stainless steel and only has very small surfaces that could radiate resonances and is light enough not to store energy.
For adjustment to different amplifiers the woofer damping can be modified and a second switch sets the HF level.
The crossover is at a low 2200Hz and the AMT is as well connected via a passive delay to adjust the phase in relation with the woofer – something that worked very well in Borg. Components are high quality Mundorf, or custom built as needed.
The woofer uses a paper cone, this time with a rubber surround. On an 8” driver it is not possible to use corrugated cloth as a surround material without too many compromises. To get the resonance frequency down to the level required for the cabinet it would reduce the midrange quality and add colouration.
On the cabinet, FinkTeam used all the tricks and whistles they learned over the years. The walls are made from two panels with the latest damping glue between them, the bracing is all carefully optimized and resonators added to avoid standing wave modes without killing the fun out of the box with excessive damping material. The port is made using the same principles developed with Borg, but this time it’s integrated into the rear panel.
