For the past 20 years, Waterfall has transformed a loudspeaker into a rare work of art in the industry.
Waterfall Audio is a French company, born from a passion for music and beautiful “objects”, a creative mind and a solid team established in 1996 by Cedric Aubriot, the current CEO. From the start, Waterfall positions itself in a “niche” segment of the market with its innovating concept of a speaker made of glass.
A DISTINCTIVE CONCEPT
Using very sophisticated manufacturing processes for glass cutting with precision near 100 Microns we have mastered the art of glass assembly.
Designed using the most sophisticated technologies, their patented « ADT » (Acoustic Damping Tube) technology, allows proper functioning of a driver in an undamped structure such as glass. These models have received many Awards. Individually assembled by hand with the greatest care, in our factory in the South of France, in Provence, each piece reflects our passion for excellence and our idea of French luxury tradition in acoustics.
Speakers are normally built out of wood, like musical instruments, so What are the advantages of a glass made loudspeaker ?
First thing to remember: not all musical instruments are made out of wood, ie. Saxophones, trumpets, drums, cymbals etc.., then in the case of a violin or a guitar, the wooden case participates in the tune and sound by vibrating.
In the case of a loudspeaker it is the movement of the driver and not the vibration of the case that gives the sound, in fact when the case starts vibrating, the quality of the sound reproduction is altered. The example being that many speakers manufacturers use structure reinforcing devices to have a more rigid structure, the ideal solution so far has been to use inside panels filled with sand, for its density and inertia and : glass is sand !
So the highly interesting choice of glass is not just for its aesthetics qualities but also for its extreme density, so no vibration of the case will come to alter the sound reproduction.
