Introducing the Bambusa MG 1.  This extraordinary speaker delivers a truly natural sound with deep bass extension from a stand-mount speaker that will surprise you. 

Cabinet -  The Bambusa cabinet is made from "solid bamboo."  You are probably wondering why "solid bamboo" is in quotes.  This is because the bamboo panels we use are laminated, but are slats of bamboo that are laminated together into a solid wood plank.  

These planks are outstanding for production of a speaker cabinet. A cabinet material for a speaker needs a few properties to perform well.  Strength, rigidity, humidity resistance and a uniform density are most important.  Bamboo offers all of these and is sustainable to boot.  

  • 29% stronger than red oak
  • Lamination and machining ensures consistent density 
  • Strength is maximised with the panels laminated on their side
  • Bamboo is a grass rather than a wood making it naturally water resistant - expands and contract as little as plywood

Why is bamboo sustainable:  The fastest growing "tree" on earth, bamboo is actually a grass with wood characteristics. Grows in shoots up to 90 feet tall, but just a few inches in diameter. Harvesting bamboo does not require replanting. Regeneration occurs from the existing root structure which helps prevent soil erosion.

Drivers:  For the Bambusa MG Graphene we have opted for SEAS Excel drivers for several reasons.  The "Millenium" tweeter is a soft fabric dome made from Sonotex with a unique magnet system.  It is higher mass and extremely well damped to ensure stray cabinet vibrations have a minimal impact on the sound profile.  

The 7" Excel mid-woofer features a magnesium driver.  These cones feature extremely high stiffness along with good internal damping. SEAS has developed the new Graphene Nano-coating material in cooperation with the Nanobiomechanics group at the CIC nanoGUNE center in Spain, a leading research institute in Europe. This graphene coating ensures better audio performance, ensuring higher damping as well as the stiffness of the magnesium cone, as well as better corrosion protection to the drivers in the new Excel Graphene line.

The precision cast, machined, and Graphene treated magnesium cone acts as a piston through the working frequency band without showing any sign of midrange resonance. High purity Graphene, when added to the surface of the SEAS Excel magnesium cones - known for its low moving mass and its high stiffness and damping - adds further beneficial properties, protecting the cones from corroding, and also making the finished product look much better.

"High damping magnesium is the best material for woofer cones because of its damping properties and light weight, combined with the good sound speed which stems from the stiffness-to-weight ratio. For woofer cones, the damping is of highest priority, even if it compromises stiffness a bit, because the woofer cones have their early break-up modes inside the audible frequency range,"

These drivers combine together for an extremely natural sound with deep bass, excellent frequency extension and deep and engaging soundstage.  

Crossover:  Like our other products, we work with a master designer who tailored our crossovers to the explicit cabinets and drivers.  Our motivation is always to deliver the most natural and revealing sound possible.  This extends to our choice of parts using Clarity Cap CSA Capacitors, Goertz Copper Foil and Solen Perfect Lay Inductors in different parts of our crossover to optimize performance.  

Kimber Kable and WBT:  We use only Kimber Kable for our internal point to point wiring and WBT binding posts.  This ensures that the signal you deliver to these speakers will reach the driver and crossovers in the purest possible way.

Silver reference includes Kimber Kable Silver wire for point to point wiring, Silver WBT binding posts and Mundorf Supreme Capacitors  

Specifications:  TBD - Speakers will be sent to Excelsior Audio for independent 3rd Party measurement.
