Kawero!® Chiara

The Chiara high performance stereo loudspeaker features sophisticated engineering, state-of-the-art materials and high tech manufacturing processes to minimize structural vibration, offering uncolored tonal coherence and a robust sound previously unattainable in a compact loudspeaker of this size. It is the smallest loudspeaker in the Kaiser Kawero speaker range, all manufactured from Panzerholz, a high tech natural wood-based laminate engineered in Germany.

Panzerholz is incredibly dense: it sinks in water, offers the rigidity of steel, and also boasts some of the best vibration damping characteristics in the world. In fact, as a side-effect of this performance, it turns out that this loudspeaker is bulletproof. Hardships in working this extremely hard material are overcome by careful tooling and handling techniques.

  • Tankwood / rubber / glass fibre high pressure sandwich cabinet without parallel surfaces
  • Bass and midrange 4th order alignment design through rear-firing passive radiator (custom made Scan Speak Illuminator unit)
  • Custom paper and carbon sandwich cone driver from Scan-Speak Denmark
  • Extremely fast custom made Mundorf AMT tweeter
  • Duelund CAST Cu capacitor and inductor
  • Crossover components individually pressure-mated to Panzerholz
  • Point-to-point wiring; no Printed Circuit Boards throughout
  • Advanced microvibration control throughout State-of-the-art Computerized Numerical Control machining and assembly to the tightest tolerances achievable today

Design

The laser-precise 10-layer italian piano lacquer finish requires special know-how and dedication to perfect. Attractive in the modern domestic interior, this surprisingly weighty loudspeaker features an ultra-thin stand which hides the internal signal wires. Thus, a sleek modernity and clean domestic look is maintained, while a huge, high performance, enveloping sound field is created, emanating from sculpturesque objects of friendly proportions. Chiara is a very different loudspeaker; one which projects natural, unforced musical emotion in a most compelling way.
