Loudspeaker “Arena” Marco Serri Design

Even though smaller than the big “Venezia” series, the Arena loudspeakers are in a category of their own. They share the same design as the bigger “brother”, albeit in a smaller cabinet, better suited in most rooms. Arena has a bass reflex configuration in a lute shaped cabinet; it is deeper than usual to enhance spatial sensation. The cabinet has a stiff wooden structure, and new materials are placed inside to reduce reverberations and improve sound quality.

The woofers and magneto-planar elements differ from those in the “Venezia” in dimension only, as they come from the same production line, with the same quality construction and tone.
The twin curved sides are finished in staves of two alternative types of wood, layered in different heights to render the effect of a sound wave. A super-tweeter gently rests on top of the cabinet, as if it were rising from it, the way sound rises above all the others elements to improve general tone.
