A Canadian customer requested a sealed box version of the Anniversario. Enjoy!

Nice.

How low does it play - 80Hz, 60Hz, xxHz?

I assume these will be mated to subwoofers or a bass unit, yes?

Actually the bass is quite nice, especially with reinforcement from the rear wall and /or a corner. Here's the nearfield response of the bass (no room gain included).

Looks like roughly -3db at 55Hz and -6dB at 45Hz? That's actually quite impressive!

Yes - the sealed box has a slower roll-off.

87.5dB, 5 ohms (nominal), 4 ohms minimum. Not a difficult load and will play louder than expected because I rate things conservatively.  :thumb:

That's nearfield, about 1" from the cone of the woofer :)

Would it be possible to see an overlay of the ported vs sealed charts?

Sorry - they were taken at different levels so an overlay wouldn't be very useful. Here's the ported curve:

That looks similar to the cabinet you used for your Vicino.  I'm sure there is an upgrade in the crossover components and of course, the MUCH better drivers!  :lol:
