Triangle Magellan Grande Concert
Its structure comprises three distinct enclosures designed to ensure elimination of standing waves and vibration. The considerable weight of the loudspeaker (100 kg) required the development of the new exclusive Fixocal locking system, which locks the three enclosures together with up to 1.6 tons of clamping pressure. Grand Concert is not just a technological showcase; all of triangle’s passion for music has gone into it. We have pushed our thrive for perfection to its limit. Bass is abysmally deep, the mids and highs simply go beyond the walls, you can feel the ambiance in the hall and it is totally gripping. At last, you can now enjoy a genuinely realistic listening experience. With the Grand Concert, triangle’s engineers have managed to blend together seemingly incompatible elements: the full texture of the timbre coupled with sublime airiness and power which conserves all its femininity.
In collaboration with Hutchinson, we developed an exclusive coupling process for the T16PG midrange driver. The resulting elimination of any vibration creates a sound image which is totally transparent and exceptionally sharp. This principle of mechanical coupling is drawn upon for the configuration of the filters which are separate and isolated, each one functioning uniquely within its own individual module.
Magellan in the cathedral in amiens
The Grand Concert was installed for a philharmonic concert in the cathedral in Amiens, which is the most vast medieval edifice in France (it measures 145 m in length, with a 42.5 m vaulted nave and an interior volume of 200 000 m3).
Optimized by computer simulation, its horn is shaped to provide a substantial attenuation of the directivity effect, i.e. off-axis drop in high frequency level. A remarkably smooth and fluid musical quality!
A unique design: extra wide bandwidth from 70 Hz to 4000 Hz with minimum distorsion and the most linear output in the industry. The new cellulose fiber diaphragm features an exponential profile to ensure true-to-life reproduction in the medium frequency band.

pulp) sandwiched between two sheets of fiberglass (new SVA diaphragm).
2. High rigidity die-cast aluminium basket fitted with a rear cover acting as
3. Special connection block on T16PG, T16GM and T21GM series drivers.
4. The special steel alloy polar pieces of the motor provide an extremely
powerful magnetic field.
5. Thermal transfer ring designed to dissipate the heat generated by the
motor (LHS2 System).
