Acapella LaCampanella MKIII

Price: $32,000 pr. Product Features:

Horns available in any automotive finish
MKIII Version with new upgraded cabinet design!

The dream of a loudspeaker developer is a single acoustic transducer capable of reproducing the deepest bass together with all the intricate and delicate highs, with the softest of rhythms yet at the same time having exceedingly wide dynamics. All the music being reproduced by a single speaker driver. The nearest approach towards this ideal is a 2-way system with the separation as wide as possible of the frequency ranges. Since the most sensitive area of the human hearing is between 1 kHz and 4 kHz together with all overtones of this frequency range, the build up of transients, sound pressure occurring under 1 kHz should also be integrated into the hearing area of the overtones from a single point source with a mass as low as possible of the membrane. Ideal would be an “exact phase point spotlight”.


Acapella has designed and engineered a new hyper spherical Horn shape with a single point source for high frequencies increasing from three to five Octaves, from 700 Hz to over 20 kHz. The newly designed horn fulfils the expectations demanded by the engineer achieving a natural output level over a wide frequency range.

Acapella LaCampanella Alto MKII

Price: $67,500 pr. Product Features:

Acapella LaCampanella Alto MK II In the constant effort in pursuing true and authentic sound reproduction Acapella has developed the LaCampanella Alto MKII using the technology based on the successful LaCampanella. With the inclusion of a second bass unit a symmetrical wide range and highly effective sound stage is achieved.

Due to the horn shape, reproduction of the resulting Acoustic spatial images radiate with inconceivable precision, this can be appreciated when listening to large Orchestras and Big Bands. The diffraction effects and space resonance problems are reduced to a minimum. Interactions with the various room acoustics become symmetrical especially with the low frequency ranges. The reproduced frequency spectra achieve a homogeneous single point-exact spatial image.

The special shaping of the horn allows a usable range of 5 Octaves. This technology, invented by Acapella, makes possible the theoretical ideal of a acoustic single point emitter very close to reality. Within the range of 700 Hz to over 20 kHz the Acapella LaCampanella Alto MKII combines the medium high Hyper spherical horn together with 8 very fast Bass drivers, achieves an acoustic single point image, the result is an extremely precise three-dimensional audible reproduction.

With the high impulse speed of the specially designed components the LaCampanella Alto MKII reproduces even smallest single instruments or voices which until now could only be heard only from the large Acapella systems.

With the LaCampanella Alto MKII all the positive characteristics of a 2-Way System are achieved with the impressive abundance of a high power Loudspeaker. In addition the new LaCampanella Alto MKII has increased efficiency contributing to the use of low powered Tube amplifiers.

Product Specifications:

Frequency Response: 20Hz to 40kHz
Efficiency: 95 dB/1W/1m
Power Handling: 100 watts (Peak handling of 1000 watts at 10 ms with no distortion)

 Acapella Fidelio 2

Price: $11,500 pr. w/Stands Product Features:

In 1987 Acapella hit upon the idea of developing a small speaker that would cover the complete music spectrum from classics to rock, jazz to pop, without loss of quality.

After 15 years of successful production of this recognized standard, the time has come to create its successor.

In developing a new standard, Acapella naturally took into account all the latest technology including what had been developed concerning loudspeaker design, technology and manufacturing. As a result, they were able to extend the transmission range by almost a whole octave in the bass and half an octave at the high frequencies and yet pack the speaker into a smaller enclosure than previously.

The result is a Mini Monitor for music with exact timing and dynamic clarity that astonishes professional musicians and music lovers.

The Acapella Fidelio II is admirably suited to the latest stereo and/or Home Theatre systems. Thanks to its small dimensions, it can be integrated into any listening space. The Fidelio is exceptionally versatile; the speakers are infinitely adjustable in height and in spacing from one another. Living or listening rooms not constructed alike but the Fidelio 2 is able to achieve a realistic three-dimensional sound image in any room, whatever the design.

Three-dimensional portrayal of sound is an important step forward and is an important factor and an absolute prerequisite in the quest for natural music reproduction in the home environment.

These requirements are perfectly fulfilled by the Fidelio II design technology which makes amazingly simple use of the six audio channels provided for DVD Audio or SACD reproduction. The entire listening area is filled with natural-sounding three-dimensional audio, transporting you straight into the recording studio. And you will discover that the audio world is really not a flat surface.

The Acapella Fidelio II offers a system for natural three-dimensional sound reproduction of music within a three-dimensional sound environment while using only 3 pairs of speakers. An important factor of this new technology, the listener is no longer anchored to a "sweet spot" but enjoys an amazing sense of three-dimensional space with a natural and stable full dimensional sonic portrayal of instruments and vocals from almost all points within (and to some extent even outside) the area defined by the speaker system.

Product Specifications:

Efficiency: 88 db /1W /1m
Impedance: 8 Ohm
Power handling: 80-250W / 10ms
Recommended power output of the amplifier: from 20W

Acapella Sphaeron Excalibur

Price: $455,000 pr. Product Features:

Horns available in any automotive finish

Developed from the "classical" Sphäron, the new Excalibur is raising to a new standard of dimension and variability. In consideration of the fact that the former Sphäron had to be combined with a 12m² horn unit for transmission of the lowest frequencies, the new Excalibur now can easily be integrated into living rooms having a minimum size of 40m². Two towering pillars with four huge 15 inches woofers for each unit now are taking over the part of the low frequency horn unit.

This loudspeaker system has no limits: with a 15 watt power already, music will be reproduced three-dimensional, thus giving you the illusion to be a member of the orchestra or the band. From the softest, perceptible sounds, these loudspeaker sculptures can accelerate the music like lightning, comparable only with the spurt of a racing car.

When the music is soft, the sounds caress your skin. When it changes into a powerful fortissimo,the listener will be swept away to the epitome of joy.

Product Specifications:

Efficiency: 100 dB/1W/1m
Power handling: 100 watts (Peak handling of 1000 watts at 10 ms with no distortion)

Acapella ION TW 1S
Ionic Plasma Tweeter

Price: $18,000 pr. Product Features:

The Acapella Tweeter ION TW 1S is a perfected and sophisticated loudspeaker chassis, whose exceptional performance and qualities can only be enjoyed completely if used properly.

It was designed to reproduce the harmonics of the music as detailed as possible. To reach this goal, a design with the smallest possible mass had to be developed. Relative to its function the Acapella ion tweeter has no mass! To carry out this project, a very unusual kind of design had to be created.

High voltage within the unit produces a constant arc. This arc is modulated with the musical signal (flame oscillates with the time of the music). This is the reason why the number of electrons within the arc varies. A larger or smaller amount of electrons requires similar space. Due to this variable need of space the surrounding air molecules have to dodge more or less quickly. This evasive action or bumping of the air molecules generates over-, resp. under pressure and, therefore, sound. In this way, the Acapella ion tweeter is able to reproduce sound without membrane and without mass.

Regarding transient capabilities and phase stiffness, the obtained sound quality cannot be realized by using conventional tweeters. Comparing the ion tweeter with other tweeter systems, its unobtrusive sound image will attract you. This kind of reproduction is to be attributed to the lack of harmonic and transient distortions.
Product Specifications:

Sensitivity: 1.5V / 0 dB (active tweeter)
Impedance: 600 Ohm
Max Sound Pressure level: 110 dB, 1 m / 1ms
Slope Input Filter: approx. 12dB / Octave
Frequency Response: 5kHz - 50kHz (variable crossover frequencies)
Mains Voltage: 110 - 120V / 60 Hz
