This internal design decision, combined with wireless transmission, ensures that the audio signal is routed directly to the speaker drivers with minimal degradation. The result is exceptional fidelity and dynamics that are difficult to achieve in traditional systems.

Digital precision.

Each driver of the Econik SIX is equipped with its own powerful power amplifier of 150W, which enables a total output of 450W per speaker and thus fills even larger rooms with impressive sound. The digital crossover, tuned with IIR and FIR filters, ensures a harmonious interplay between the tweeter, midrange driver and bass chassis and provides a precise sound balance. This meticulous fine-tuning makes the Econik SIX the ideal choice for demanding high-end music reproduction in medium to large rooms, where it shines with exceptional clarity and detail. In addition, our speakers feature a dual DAC chip system from Cirrus Logic, which ensures optimum signal processing. Continuous monitoring and dynamic adjustment of each driver ensures that they always perform without distortion and with maximum dynamics to give you an unparalleled listening experience.

Fully active speaker technology is at the forefront of audio innovation, and at the heart of these revolutionary systems are our uniquely designed models that deliver unrivaled precision and performance. Not only is each driver individually driven by its own power amplifier, but each of these amplifiers has an impressive rated output of 150 watts and a peak output of up to 330 watts. This means that each speaker has 450 watts of continuous power and 990 watts of peak power at its disposal. These figures are not just numbers; they are the foundation for audiophile sound reproduction that brings every detail and nuance of the music to life with breathtaking clarity and dynamics.

The power behind the sound

In a fully active speaker system, dedicated amplification for each driver allows for tailored and optimized performance specific to the requirements of each driver. This individual drive provides precise control over the entire frequency range, from the lowest bass to the highest treble, and allows for flawless reproduction unmatched by conventional designs. This circuit concept corresponds not only to bi-amping but even to tri-amping in classic passive systems.

The availability of 150 watts of rated power per power amplifier guarantees that each chassis receives the power required to reproduce even the most demanding musical passages with ease and precision. At dynamic peaks, the impressive peak power of 330 watts enables exceptional fidelity without any distortion, even at the highest volumes. This power potential is crucial for capturing the full dynamics of the music and delivering a deep, emotional listening experience.

At the heart of the outstanding sound experience offered by the active speakers lies an advanced technology that goes far beyond traditional audio concepts: the digital crossover. This innovative component is at the heart of our speakers and is responsible for the exceptional clarity and precision they deliver. By using specialized digital filters, in particular Finite Impulse Response (FIR) filters, the digital crossover achieves a level of detail and sound quality that previously seemed unattainable.

Precise frequency separation and optimum driver control

The digital crossover separates the incoming audio signal into different frequency bands, each optimized to drive specific drivers - such as woofers, midrange drivers and tweeters. This separation allows each driver to reproduce only the frequencies for which it was designed, resulting in a significant reduction in distortion and an improvement in overall sound quality.

Thanks to digital processing, we can achieve a precision in frequency separation that is not possible in analog systems. The digital crossover allows extremely fine and precise adjustment of the filter characteristics, so that the transitions between the drivers are seamless and without audible discontinuities. This results in a perfect balance between the drivers, reproducing every element of the audio spectrum with optimum efficiency and coherence.

The soul of active loudspeakers: the digital crossover in practice

A key element of the digital crossover is its ability to control the time delay between the drivers to within a fraction of a millisecond. This precise timing ensures that the sound waves from each driver reach the listener in sync, which is essential for maintaining phase coherence and creating a spatially precise and three-dimensional sound image.

The digital crossover is therefore more than just a technical component; it is the soul of the active loudspeakers, opening up a new dimension of sound fidelity. With its help, we achieve a sound reproduction that sets new standards in terms of both precision and naturalness.

Phase coherence is a key element in audio technology that significantly influences the quality of the sound image. Due to their design, passive loudspeaker systems are often confronted with phase problems, especially in the critical crossover frequency ranges where different drivers meet. These challenges result from the physical properties of the crossover components, which not only affect the signal but can also cause undesirable delays and phase shifts.

Overcoming phase problems through advanced digital signal processing

In the Econik active loudspeakers, we have mastered these challenges by using advanced digital signal processing. Our specialized digital crossovers enable accurate phase control far beyond the capabilities of passive systems. Using precise digital algorithms, we can ensure that the phases of the sound waves from each driver - be it the tweeter, midrange or woofer - are perfectly aligned.

This precise phase tuning is crucial because it allows the sound waves to combine into a harmonious whole instead of canceling each other out or interfering with each other. Phase coherence is particularly important at crossover frequencies, where the acoustic contributions from the different drivers should blend seamlessly. With passive loudspeakers, poor phase coherence can lead to an unclear sound image, as sounds no longer reach the listener at the same time. This can affect the soundstage and localization of sound sources and ultimately reduce the overall listening experience.

The importance of precise phase tuning for a harmonious and detailed sound image

The Econik active speakers, on the other hand, use digital precision to overcome the phase problems. The result is a coherent and integrated sound image that is as detailed and lifelike as if you were sitting right in the front row of a concert. With our technology, every musical detail is reproduced with extreme precision and without time delay, an unrivaled luxury in passive technology. Phase coherence is therefore not just a technical specification, but the key to a natural, immersive and emotionally moving listening experience.

There are essentially two different approaches or philosophies for passive loudspeaker systems:

  1. The first variant involves the use of many components in order to achieve a uniform frequency response. However, this complexity inevitably leads to undesirable side effects. Phase shifts and delays in the sound definitely occur, making the music seem unnatural and impairing playback.

  2. Alternatively, a reduced number of components can be used in the signal path to minimize interference. However, this simplification inevitably leads to an uneven sound, as not all frequencies are reproduced equally loudly by the drivers.

Our innovative technology goes beyond these traditional approaches. With our digital crossover, we not only achieve an even more linear frequency response compared to passive systems, but also completely eliminate interfering analog components in the signal path. The result is a clear, precise and natural sound that combines the best of both worlds and takes the listening experience to a new level.

This allows you to tailor your listening experience to your exact preferences and requirements.

At Econik Speakers, we pride ourselves on offering you acoustic precision that has been developed to perfection in our laboratories. But we know that the room you place your speakers in has its own personality that can affect the sound. To ensure you can experience the sound we've designed in any environment, we've introduced Sound Presets - your solution for a consistent sound signature no matter where you listen.

Simplicity and efficiency through technology

We bring the developer's expertise to your home. With a USB stick and a few simple steps, you can update your speaker's crossover - no tools, no risk and no waiting time. This process allows you to adjust the sound signature of your speaker at the touch of a button. Close to the wall, a reverberant room or a complex home theater setup - there is a suitable sound preset for every situation.

Comparison with the expansion of the crossover for passive loudspeakers

Imagine if you had to open up your passive speaker, remove the crossover, take it to a developer to reconfigure it and then reinstall it. This would be a complex and expensive process that requires expertise and risks damaging the delicate hardware.

With Econik's sound presets, this process is now as easy as downloading a file. Our presets are the result of intensive research and fine-tuning, bringing every component of the speaker - from the tweeter to the woofer - into a new, optimized configuration. It's a complete redesign of the internal crossover, tailor-made for specific acoustic environments.

A new age of sound customization

Downloading and applying a sound preset is a transformative experience. You'll experience how the acoustic landscape of your room changes, how the soundstage opens up and how every note comes to life with the clarity and intensity our developers intended.

  1. Connect a USB stick (FAT32) to your computer.

  2. Download the desired sound preset and copy it to the USB stick.

    Note: The file must not be renamed, otherwise it cannot be recognized correctly by the speaker. Make sure that there is only one sound preset on the USB stick.

  3. Switch off the speaker and insert the USB stick into the USB port on the back of the speaker.

  4. Switch on the speaker while the USB stick is connected. The LEDs on the back of the speaker make a rapid circular movement. The sound preset has now been successfully installed and the USB stick can be removed.

    Note: If the LEDs are constantly rotating in a circle, the file cannot be read and installed correctly.

Dynamic bass adjustment

The Econik SIX speakers offer an innovative, volume-dependent frequency adjustment in the low frequency range, which has been specially developed for an impressive listening experience. Our system checks the signal in real time for volume and frequency and derives the perfect correction from this. At low volumes, low frequencies tend to be perceived less strongly by the ear, which can lead to weak bass and a thin sound. Our dynamic bass adjustment corrects this effect to ensure a full, powerful sound even at low volumes. The adjustment is made according to the volume level so that you can always enjoy an optimal sound experience. It complies with the latest scientific findings and the ISO 226:2003 standard for first-class sound quality.

Stereo Hub and Surround Hub offer two options for sound correction: an automatic calibration system and manual EQ settings. These functions can be used independently or in combination to achieve customized sound optimization.

Automatic calibration for the perfect bass

The calibration system uses advanced algorithms to automatically analyze and adjust the bass range of your room. Targeted correction below 500 Hz makes the bass more precise, controlled and free from unwanted resonances or overemphasis that can be caused by room acoustics. The result is a clean, tight bass that forms the basis for a clear and detailed overall presentation. This selective calibration process ensures that the room acoustics are corrected precisely where it is needed most, without compromising the sound quality in the mid and high frequencies. As a result, headroom is maintained and dynamics are not restricted, which is particularly important at higher frequencies.

Manual EQ settings for individual preferences

With the manual EQ settings, you have the option of completely customizing the sound. With a selection of parametric, low-pass, high-pass, high-shelf and low-shelf filters, you can target specific frequency ranges. These settings allow you to change the sound character of your loudspeaker and tailor it perfectly to your listening habits.

Three memory locations for individual manual settings

To increase flexibility even further, you can save up to three different EQ configurations in presets. This allows you to quickly and easily switch between different sound profiles, depending on what you are listening to or what mood you want to create. Whether for an intimate jazz concert, a dynamic movie scene or relaxed background music - with the storable EQ presets you can adjust the sound in no time at all.
