Before you ask, it’s pronounced ‘Nak-eema-tone’. See, it’s easy! It’s the Canadian speaker with Dutch model names and a Finnish designer!
Plaster or wallpaper-over speakers are becoming ever more popular. The freedom to enjoy music throughout the home without seeing anything that resembles a loudspeaker is now a regular demand from interior designers and end users. All four models of the Nakymatone range meet that demand perfectly and are designed and manufactured in Canada. Build quality as you’d expect is exemplary and each Nakymatone comes with a reassuring 10-year warranty.
There are four models of plaster/wallpaper-over speakers in the range, all have the same dimensions:
Goed – means good. It’s a very good entry-level plaster-over speaker that features a riveted aluminium tuned back box and dual exciters to drive the music
Mooi – means nice, this model sounds nicer than Goed, worth ‘selling up’ to the more demanding customer
Echt – means real, for the best and most realistic sound. A super tuned anodised, polished and welded back box unites with four top-of-the-range exciters to produce beautiful music reproduction.
Lastly there’s Twee meaning two, a single speaker for stereo use in smaller spaces such as bathrooms.
Nakymatones sound so natural and musical because the cabinet has been acoustically tuned for the application. Eric Nakkila and Godfried van Rooij painstakingly tried endless methods and experiments over 3 years to achieve the Nakymatone natural and musical sound. The internal Neodynium exciters have also been placed for optimum results. And unlike many other traditional speakers, the sound barely travels out of the back of the speaker. This means less noise breaks through to the room next door or above.
The last but most crucial ingredient in this musical masterpiece is the Controlled Resonance Technology (CRT). The cabinet and exciters drive a soundboard on the fascia of the speaker. This acts much like an instrument, generating sound waves. CRT helps to avoid resonances and eliminate colouration.
All models have Backboxes, High Pass Filters and Overload Protection built in to the design, unlike some competitors; these are the only fully enclosed models like this on the market. They run at 8 Ohms and disperse your music at 180 x 180 degrees to fill the room.
- Goed plays down to 80Hz and accepts up to 40watts
- Mooi plays down to 75Hz and accepts up to 80watts
- Echt plays down to 60Hz and accepts up to 80watts
- Twee plays down to 80Hz and accepts up to 2x 40watts
