Malbork’s CEO, Daniel Fajkis, talked with us to tell us more about the company and its distinct and unique Malbork Warsaw loudspeakers.
Malbork was formed to break the standard for design and configuration and provide clients with more than simply a speaker but rather a sculpture.
- 39 – 30,000 Hz Frequency Response
- Overall Height: 127 cm / 50 in
- Neodymium Aero Ribbon HF Driver
- Crimped Aluminum Cone MF Driver
- Polypropylene Cone LF Driver
- 123 lbs. / 55.8 kg gross weight (Each)
- Aluminum is the material of choice (6061-T6)
- 75–350 Watts (Bridged) Power Handling
- 8 Ohm for the alto input
- 4 Ohm Soprano Input
- 4 Ohm Tenor Input
The Malbork Warsaw speakers require three weeks of constant CNC machining only to create the aluminum bodies for one pair of speakers. Each speaker begins out as 220 pounds of solid aluminum, which is whittled down to 100 pounds for the actual speaker after machining.
According to Daniel, the use of aluminum for enclosures provides excellent stiffness, allowing for compact bass response and robust middle reproduction. The tapered cylindrical interior chamber design is engineered to nullify resonances because there are no walls off of which surface waves might reflect.
The chambers are further coated with fiberglass insulation to dampen the enclosures further. The areo-striction ribbon tweeter is housed in an open-back enclosure to make use of its rear-firing capabilities, which deepens the soundstage by reflecting high frequencies off the listening room’s back wall.
The Malbork Warsaw speaker is also tri-amped, with three pairs of terminals on the back of the woofer chamber for individuals who want a more personalized listening experience.
When not in use, the speaker has high-purity solid copper machined bridges that connect the inputs so that only one amplifier is needed. The “tri-amp” terminal design, which is rarely seen in other speakers, enables Malbork users to connect up to three amplifiers to each speaker.
This allows for a highly customized listening experience, as the low (tenor), mid (alto), and high (soprano) ranges can all be altered independently. If this option is not chosen, a pair of high-purity, machined copper bridges can be utilized to connect the terminals, and a single amplifier can be used to power the speakers.
Malbork also makes speaker cables with shielding made of brass, copper, or stainless steel on the outside for a ‘desirable aesthetic’ and ‘supreme durability, according to the company.
You can get each pair of the Malbork Warsaw Loudspeakers for USD 65,000. Malbork designs, engineers, and assembles all of its goods in the United States.
