Linear Magnetic Drive Twoofers: The Soundmatters foxLv2
employs two dual voice-coil 1" (25mm) Linear Magnetic Drive Twoofers
(tweeter/woofer combination) that provide wide response with remarkable clarity.
The foxLv2 Platinum
is engineered around this pair of proprietary, highly sophisticated acoustic
drivers, unique in their ability to reproduce both extreme high (tweeter) and low
(woofer) frequencies from a single very small diameter 1" (25mm) dome speaker,
dubbed the "Twoofer". The Twoofers incorporate soundmatter's Linear Magnetic
Drive topology featuring field-focused, back-to-back, dual Extreme-Energy
neodymium magnets and a 1-inch, dual voice coil.
BassBattery/Flatmagic: The foxLv2 Platinum pocket-sized, personal
music system's dual
digitally powered Twoofers are assisted in their task of reproducing low
frequencies by a miniaturized version of the high mass "moving-wall" passive
bass radiators found in Soundmatters' award-winning SUBstage home subwoofers. To add the additional bass driver, without
compromising stringent weight and space restrictions, Soundmatters engineers
developed an innovative solution, known as the "BassBattery". This patented
design was created by rubber-encasing the unit's built-in high capacity,
lithium-ion battery, enabling it to provide the mass for, and do double duty as,
an acoustic suspension bass driver. Moving the battery from the inside of the
speaker to become part of a "moving-wall" radiator, frees up critical internal
airspace to drive the bass.
"Skintight" DomeForward Enclosure: The
Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum
incorporates high-tech glass-filled composite walls to form a "skintight"
ultra-rigid totally sealed acoustic enclosure (often confused with metal, but
much lighter for portability). Unlike other manufactures that mount their
acoustic drivers in manner that actually obstructs the sound, especially if the
listener is off-axis from the front of the speaker; the foxLv2 Platinum Twoofer
speakers, are mounted "dome forward" from the enclosure, protected by a grille
designed to maximize acoustic transparency. Another reason why unlike typical
small speakers, the foxLv2 Platinum sounds open and airy, almost regardless of its
