Post The Official Funk Audio Thread

Introduction to Funk Audio

Gentleman,

I’m sure some of you have tried Funk Audio’s state of the art subwoofers. Even less has experienced their speakers.

For the interest of many AVSforum members, some of you may remember them as Funky Waves. FYI they are now Funk Audio and also a company that now produces completely custom speakers as well as a line of speakers. Below is just a few examples:











Website:

A New Funk Audio Site has been Made! It is Completely New!
http://funkaudio.ca/

Owner:
Nathan Funk

Forum ID:
Funky Waves
http://www.avsforum.com/forum/member...nky-waves.html

Here is how I found Funk Audio…

I have been looking for speakers for years and many don’t meet my standards. This includes looking at multiple speakers that were way beyond my personal budget well into 30k+ ..... of course being annoyed with the price I looked at something cheaper… Subs! Which means I would eventually ran into Funk Audio. But at that time it was still Funky Waves.

This was about 2 years back and was also the time I paid Nathan a visit not knowing if my trip on the ferry was going to be worth it. And yes, it cost me around 90$ to go over there for a demo! (Yes, I dragged friends over) Was it hype? No… His subs are fully capable of making my Velodyne sub sound like well…mud? The speakers were good at that time although my interest was primarily focused on those subwoofers. I also had the honor to be one of the first to experience his 18.2s!
I had 2 others with me, none had experienced anything quite like it. Although I didn’t purchase anything, Nathan provided an awesome demo with me hogging his computer. :P

My second visit was a few weeks ago. Primarily to see what’s going on in Funk Audio other than monster subs.
Since there has been some activity with people posting about his products and giving great reviews on his speakers, I thought it would be rather interesting.

It wasn’t just interesting. I was shocked at how well the speakers performed. My main focus was the mid and treble were the vocals are. Very wide dispersion, accurate and very lively. These qualities that are rare. Those who have heard Canton Reference speakers understand, except these takes it up a few notches.

There are 2 speakers I was able to demo are the 6.1Ps and the 8.2Ps.
I consider them both to be reference level and world class products along with his subs.
Why?
See below…

Since I’m currently waiting on my order from Funk Audio.
I’ll let you guys know the details of why I chose Nathan to the work for me and why I hold him in such high regards.

He doesn’t just create a product like other companies do. Every single one has much thought put into it and performs very well. For example: The 6.1Ps which is a bookshelf speaker would perform just as well as products higher in the line within its limits.
Of course the 8.2P does more, but the difference is only because of physics, driver and frequency extension etc.

A product that is not held back doing its primary function, reproducing faithfully and accurately.

Of course we all have limits of how much we can pay for. The performance was, dare I say, above many products that cost 20k+. When I mean performance, the ability to reproduce vocals and classical instruments and many other types of music. I carried with me not just English music but Hindi/Korean/Japanese and Russian music as well. With much of it in Flac.

I considered classical to be quite important to me and often hear it in concerts were it is non-amplified. And that was my reference point.

Active Crossovers from Funk Audio

The huge plus for me is active crossover and amplification.
No inductors. No power saturation distortion.
Easy phase angle for the amplifier because there are no capacitors in the direct signal path.
Of course this is not the only thing …

For those interested in the 6.1P and 8.2Ps that I mentioned.

I did not see the 8.7Ps but apparently their sold. They were demo’d at the Rocky Mountainfest.

=============================================

So to conclude:

1. Nathan can create anything you want.
2. He even makes recommendations and help you understand the design
3. There is no limit
4. Priority when creating a product (Sonic Accuracy and performance)
5. Tolerated my endless calling
6. Any Veneer you want even piano finishes

Products show how passionate a designer is in their field.
I would gladly recommend any of his products to anyone without a second thought.

Since there are some people that have listened to his speakers. A thread here is much more suitable.

Of course, build pictures will be coming for my build!

Looking forward to posts and pictures!

152mm Tall (6 inches)

Efficiency:
99db/Watt

Power Handling:
100 Watts

Fs = 800 hz

My impressions:

Impressions from listening to the 8.2P with this large format planar. It can directly compete with Raal Ribbons
This planar does not have the same flaws as the famous BG Neo 8s. This makes for effortless presentation and can be integrated very well if the woofer can keep up. And since the majority of the music information we actually hear exists below 4-5K this planar will excel and exceed ribbons in real life performance. Some of you wonder why… A planar has a very large active surface compared to ribbons which will translate to lower useable frequencies with significantly less distortion. For the designer, easier integration and fine tuning.

In this case, it’s usefulness in terms of coherency and dynamic ability is very different.

Why is this important? The human voice can produce sound between 100 and 1200hz with harmonics up to 8Khz. A piano can extend up to around 4.1khz. And most instruments produce less than 3Khz with most of the harmonics below 10khz.

Raal vs Funk Audio 8.2 Planar?
Raal vs Planars / Raal vs other Ribbons

Most ribbons including Raal, has very small active area with very little excursion. Limiting yourself to certain crossovers would lead to sub par performance and poor integration due to no room to optimize. This applies for drivers of all types. Having such a driver of this performance level open many opportunities.

The planar will keep the high frequency floor bounce to a minimum. There is little vertical dispersion in a planar, but since this is one of the largest planars it will give quite a tall vertical coverage. Dispersion in a planar narrows across the horizontal plane as the frequency gets higher. As the frequency of sound goes higher, the wavelength is smaller. So this is not really to much of a problem. This was proven at the Vancouver Summertime GTG (2014) since I did not hear anyone complain about high frequency dispersion or "beaming" issues. Quite a few of use were off Axis as well and not in the "sweet spot".

At Funk Audio, performance in the real world comes first, nothing else.

Funk Audio TSAD18v1 vs TC Sounds LMS ULTRA 5400

I personally did not get that much experience with TC Sounds drivers...Most are too short... So I'll post a link to a person that has both...I do, however, feel that the TSAD18V1 driver responds very accurately even on low volume even though the demo was short. (Was too distracted by the dual 18.3 and 18.2)

Music!
Digging through my FLAC collection resulted in me choosing my first album for this.
Daft Punk: Tron soundtrack and cranking the EP4000 up allowed me to become fully engrossed in this. I’ve heard this on my LMS, so I had a reference point, I honestly thought these two drivers would sound very similar - I was mistaken. The LMS seems to have a bit more bass lower, but the TSAD has more higher up, and when I say “higher” i mean 40hz. I asked myself, if its lower is it better? The meat of most music is above 40hz, which the TSAD appears to excel on this soundtrack. Using both subs side by side, i was adjusting the channels again to my surprise it sounded like the LMS was “slower” than the TSAD, almost like the LMS is dragging the music out, this gives me the impression that the TSAD is a bit more “true to the source”

F3 would be the point at which frequency response drops 3 decibels. This is the point that your frequency response starts to trail off.

f3 is 47hz
f10 is 40hz

Funk Audio 18.2

For Power Level 2 as far as I know, Comes with 2 Units for amplification not integrated with the box. These were demoed at the Vancouver Summer Time get together on July 19th 2014.
These if proper amount of power supplied are able to to 130db, with compensation for dual opposed 140db if I remember correctly.

Interesting Facts:
Capable of 130 dB 2M ground plane
Can Achieve 140 dB w/ compensation for Dual Opposed (Needs confirmation)
Drivers have not been fried yet even with over 10 Kw

One thing I would like to see measured is the 18.1 subwoofer, I would like to see how much of a boost the vent give to the low end of the woofer there. I think that might be a killer sub. It looks to me like that woofer would be best for a ported configuration. I have long lusted after a gloss black 18.0, but financial circumstances at present forbid it. Of course, the ultimate would be some 18.2s, but that will have to wait for when I win the lotto (any day now my lucky number will come up!) I am intrigued by the 8.7, and Mark Kravchenko's explanation of the design choices in this thread should pique anyone's interest who is looking to purchase a serious high-fidelity loudspeaker at the moment, however, as with Funk's other stuff, it is out of reach for myself at present. By the way Crackhead, your setup looks terrific, I am sure it must sound great.

I had the pleasure of being at the gtg and listening to the funk products. Here are my impressions.

The 18.2 sub is just devastating. Its the same size as my sub's but its in another world. Clean deep bass that is very impressive. I don't think at 115 dB's bass can be any better. The only thing I wished was to hear one of there more affordable sub's. How would it compare to the top dawg. If I came into some serious cash I would order two for my new house instantly.

The 6.1 speakers for music are The best speakers I've ever heard for vocals. All the nouns you could use , life like, etc. The only music that I don't think their suited for is hard Rock or metal. They are laid back and just don't have the bite you would want for ac/dc. If you love jazz then you would be in heaven.

For movies I wouldn't recommend the 6.1 because they just don't have the dynamics that a high sensative speaker does. They are not bad, but I think there are better options out there. The funk sub is awesome for everything.

The funk guys are nice to talk to and put on a good show.

I too was at the GTG and agree about the sub. A real monster with class. Is there such a thing? Yup, that Funk sub.

The speakers were very well done. Exceptional fit and finish. Very smooth linear response. Clean laid back sound. Wonderful speakers.

It is +/- 3 db variable from 16 to 30hz afaik. If you want to push with the dsp. It would be better to ask Nathan. Response up to 150. If you liked to 18.0 you can try the 18.0SE. It's the same and just has a budget finish and square box.

Also upgrading those speakers soon hehe juat waiting on Nathan.

Chalugadp, I agree for some of your statements.

I personally found them to be laid back when they should be with very low distortion so they didn't seemed to be as loud or fatiguing when they run hot. As far as I know they can run a bit hotter. It's just so clean....doesn't sound as loud due to the lack of distortion. Didn't really feel that there was a lack of dynamics.

I think David mentioned the same thing too

C2K, Thanks for the great job you've done getting this thread started.

shadyJ, we are actually working on upgrading the driver and amp in the 18.1, and should have some measurements of it in the next couple months.

For everyone else I would like to let you know we will be exhibiting again this year at Rocky Mountain Audio Fest October 10-12. We will be in room 437

Hey has anyone heard the 8.7p speakers before who could offer a bit of a review?

Also, crackhead, where did you find that FR measurement* of the tweeter? Does Nathan post measurements of the speakers? I'd be interested in "seeing" what we heard.

* The specs say 99db/w/m but the measurement shows an average well above 103db???

Steve asked me if he could post this measurement.

This measurement is Nathan's planar on a waveguide. So there is a bit of cancellation as you go off axis.

Without the waveguide the response is 99db across the board.

As for the 8.7P there are a few comments on the sound.

If I can help I would be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Hey you were critical of me for calling mine a waveguide They're horns

So is the planar used in any speakers in that WG? The 8.2 wasn't a WG if I recall correctly. Got any pics? I'm a waveguide user so that interests me. An 8" wide guide would look fantastic on the 8.2. But that measurement doesn't show much directivity with a bit of bunching around 4 to 5khz.

Got me! When in Rome.....

We don't use a waveguide. (To short to be called a horn really) The reason is that is does not work as well as what we are doing.

We have such a controlled dispersion pattern that as I found at the GTG in Vancouver, you can hear one speaker and it's contribution to the stereo image while sitting very close to another one.

Most of the reason why we can generate such a clear stereo image.

The 8.7's pushed this up a few notches. We had height in the stereo image and in a large room you would get imaging from 25 feet away.

For that speaker i dipped into looking at electromagnetic wave theory used in radio towers to figure out an optimum setup. Glad I took the time for the research. Because it really paid off.

the 8.7 is a devastating monster. clean and athletic all the way down to 24HZ-ish. no need for a sub if you are a music only kinda guy... but then again, they would pair up really well with Funks concept 21/22" subs.

All of this stuff that is being said is things that I have been saying since i got on the forums. Funk Audio produces capable speakers and amps, and capable simply means that it will not quit for any one or any reason, and do everything without diminishing returns. im just glad im not alone anymore.

All of this stuff that is being said is things that I have been saying since i got on the forums. Funk Audio produces capable speakers and amps, and capable simply means that it will not quit for any one or any reason, and do everything without diminishing returns. im just glad im not alone anymore.

great thread everyone.

ya. I had that 2.1 system on his website... the one with the 8.1P's and the 18.0 finished in Koa. I sold that back and bought the Omegas, and Im getting them "rebuilt" into something awesome.

Just waiting for Nathan to build a 8 channel amp and I'll be all over that like a fat kid on a smartie.

You know me, im all Funk all the time. Thanks for the welcome back. I got married and shortly after we got hit by a garbage truck, so life is a bit busy/a pain in the arse. lol!
