retains the same proportions and sound signature as the full sized Fantom but in a more manageable size. Fantom S like its big brother has fully adjustable horn blades to sculpt the horn for the room size, shape, and desired soundstage!
FANTOM incorporates all of Viking Acoustic's proven acoustic innovations. FANTOM sets the bar higher than ever before delivering perfectly balanced sound from the lowest lows to the highest highs with a massive soundstage, open airy detail ,inexplicably real sonic textures, and unequaled bass.
Each and every angle and corner is purposely designed to recreate a live performance in the right scale with the right energy (dynamics), tone and wide-bandwidth...We set out to make another game-changing loudspeaker whilst strictly Not following the status-quo.
Kabuki FANTOM S is a large speaker but of the "right" proportions and an interesting audio form to look at from any angle. Fantom will fit into even modest sized listening rooms. The driver placement is optimized for a realistic sound stage; where the players are the right size and scale.
The bass-horn's four drivers are physically and electrically aligned for the best possible coherence and timing. The ribbon super tweeter is loaded within the mouth of the bass-horn on an internal baffle shielded from any bass turbulence and is furthest away from the listening position. At the rear of the large horn is a second solid wood baffle with a by-pass port to the internal resonating damper.
