FinkTeam’s Borg is two-way floor standing design featuring a 10.25 inch high-power mid/bass driver and an Air Motion Transformer (AMT) tweeter. For those of you who don’t know FinkTeam, it is ‘what it says in the name’. A team of talented experts in their respective fields who decided, with Karl-Heinz Fink as their head, to create a brand and to design products that they wished to.
Their day jobs, in general, are as specialists working for Fink Audio Consulting, Europe’s leading acoustical consultancy. Their first commercial product was the WM-4 - a behemoth of a speaker - designed initially as a reference. The WM-4 allowed them to hear small differences in set up/optimization, of other products they were designing, that would have been missed on less revealing loudspeakers.
But that was last year. This year is about Borg.
Borg is a significant design exercise in its own right, as knitting a 10.25 inch mid/bass, albeit an extremely fine one, with a HF unit is never easy. To combine the two drivers to achieve a flat frequency response and, more importantly, a slow even mid/HF roll off in the power response is a significant feat of engineering.
There is no off-axis hole in the middle effect.
