        Product description

        Crafting a Chario Academy Serendipity speaker requires many skills and hours of handcrafting

        Canaletto’s wood is very high required because of its aesthetic qualities, it’s considered a precious wood, because of its physical characteristics, such as elasticity and durability, it makes it a wood suitable for the creation of classic and modern furniture, as well as for the construction of tailor-made pianos.

        Handcrafting process: 210 hours
        Machinery time: 5 hours
        Drying wood process: 6 months
        Assembly and quality control: minimum 6 hours

        Hourglass duct

        The pressure that pushes the air inside the reflex duct is extremely high. Consider the analogy of hydraulic lines that push water upward. As the high increase loses fluid pressure, the jets lose speed and weaken. Hence the goal must be to retain the optimal pressure within the reflex duct to ensure a consistent strength in the acoustic wave, while avoiding the audible noise when pressure speeds over 130km/h. The photograph aside demonstrates the reflex duct section with the Hourglass hyper-exponential, in a Serendipity.
