The 6.1.P's are 89 db/W

We are working hard to get all the info up on the site for the new products, in the meantime feel free to ask questions.

Sure look like a great product line for Funk Audio. The plannar tweeter with those custom face plates you are using must have done some work to come up with the shape for the tweeter is my guess:). With the 8.2 and 6.1 do they use the same tweeter for those in the Home Theater enivorment? Nice work ....

Thanks for the kind words!

Funk Audio now has a full line up of great sounding, well engineered speakers. WE wanted to make something that would be able to be interesting for different tastes and budgets.

Nathan is the one who designed the faceplate for the planars. The design goal for all of the speakers is to create a very efficient system that has very low distortion. The planars are a big part of that idea.
We wanted our designs to be able to extract the most possible from the elements we chose. Driver spacing is always a designers headache when dealing with optimum center to center spacing. So our decide route was to create custom faceplates that looked good and had solid engineering behind their form and function. I did the rough design work on the face plates for the 8.2 MTM and the 8.7 Full range tower. Nathan fleshed out the nitty gritty.

They allow us to extract the best sound from the drivers we have chosen.

They look very pretty indeed. I am glad the Funk speakers have nice attractive curves, instead of the boring boxy look. biggrin.gif

Those curves are not just for looks.

They are done for a number of reasons actually. They are laminated from 3mm Baltic birch. They are a stressed curved panel it is quite stiff to. This raises the resonant frequency of the panels to such a point that they are not really a problem within the audio bandwidth. Makes for a very quiet box. The curves are also very useful for keeping the sound clean. A moving speaker radiates on both sides. The side you see and the side on the interior of the enclosure. We have found that a curved sided enclosure has a great benefit in the clarity of the midrange. With proper dimensions our enclosures are designed to create an acoustical environment that destroys the rearward waves generated off of the back of the woofer as quickly as is possible. Not as easy to construct as a square box, but worth the effort.

Baltic birch nice work.. Good to see the construction for acoustical reasons going away from MDF.

Funk Audio 8.2P Ribbon Tweeter Curved Cabinet Floor-standing Speaker, $$6,250/Pair


You will absolutely find no better finish work from any manufacturer than Funk Audio. Cabinetry work is simply spectacular….


Impressions

Funk Audio takes pride in manufacturing speakers that reproduce music with the highest fidelity to the original signal as is possible. The 8.2P’s create clean and clear sound reproduction at any volume level with no listening fatigue. Just clean clear undistorted music. Music you can enjoy and truly loose yourself in.

Imaging and Soundstage

The Funk Audio 8.2P’s soundstage is like being on a bridge on a foggy night; it is very wide, extending well beyond the 8.2P’s and surrounds you. Imaging is very sharp and stable. You can visualize each performer's relationship each other. The soundstage is uncannily realistic. The 8.2P’s convey ambient information extremely well and really put you there. Paired with the Onkyo TX-NR3009 the 8.2P’s imaging remained true at all volumes.

Dynamics and Headroom

The Funk Audio 8.2P’s has more than enough headroom to handle anything thrown at them. They played with the kind of responsive spontaneous that results from careful time alignment and fast transient response. The 8.2P's headroom goes well beyond any listening level desired.

The dynamic punch is apparent on Diana Krall Live in Paris, a good example of a concert recorded with dynamics preserved. In I’ve Got You Under my Skin, Diana’s vocals along with the guitar, drums, and European Symphony Orchestra had room to hit you at their peak levels and the 8.2P’s delivers just the right amount of detail.

A nice example of the 8.2P's showing their dynamic transient ability was Fly Me to the Moon, where each of Anthony Wilson’s guitar notes started with a clear transient impact.

Luciano Pavarotti’s rendition of the aria Nessun Dorma from Giacomo Puccini's Turandot for male vocal and pitch. Considered to be the most difficult song to master, and Pavarotti’s vocal tone is transparent and pure. With the entire orchestra playing at peak level, there is little doubt that the Funk Audio 8.2P’s can be pushed to the level of a live orchestra.

Usher’s Climax at high volume produced no indication of compression or limitation. The Funk Audio 8.2P never gets close to saying, "Enough, that is all there is, no more..."

Overall Listening Experience

Power, but details handled delicately, yet with authority. The Funk Audio 8.2P’s are beautiful speakers to look at too, and my living room took to them very nicely. The chili cherry wood finish matched with the Thomasville furniture, the lamps on which shook occasionally with the 35Hz capability of two 8" midrange drivers. The Funk Audio 8.2P’s have my definite recommendation.

Adjustable brass spikes are a standard 8.2P feature

The TV upgrade got stuck in limbo waiting for the 4K TVs to come down in price. I may just give up waiting and just pull the trigger on a 240Hz and call it a day!rolleyes.gifsmile.gif

Nice looking finished front end.. How do they sound and image as a set.. Killer look. Plus about time some company put a acoustic spike into the base not as a after thought... Well done Nathan.
