All the filter settings such as crossover, phase control, high pass, mid-base equalizer and full base management are integrated in the receiver and controlled through an on-screen display.
About Inverter Technology
With its exclusive Inverter Technology, Final re-engineered the way sound and power move across the face of the speaker. Traditional electrostat designs move the audio signal across the stator plates on each side of a Mylar diaphragm to “pull” the film and create the sound, the Final technology “inverts” that process by embedding the audio signal inside a sealed diaphragm. This creates sound energy that is stronger, clearer, far more responsive, and amazingly lifelike. The design of the new inverter enables speaker impedance to be substantially higher than traditional electrostats nominal 4 Ohm. This allows the use of smaller amplifiers – as low as 35 watts – to drive the speakers for the F90i and 75 watts for the F1000i. An important benefit of the Final Inverter technology is the separation of the high and medium-low tones, resulting in a far broader stereo image.
