The F500 Series

Detailed, revealing and engaging.

The F500 series is based around an IsoFlare point source drive unit; a technology that their Technical Director, Dr. Paul Mills is renowned for. He, along with their technical team is responsible for the audio performance and mechanical build of this type of driver and has many decades of experience between them. Combining Fyne Audio’s IsoFlare driver and FyneFlute rubber surround into a rigid cabinet, with a cleverly designed porting system, ensures optimal in-room performance.

Floor-standing models in Fyne Audio's F500 series use a rigid MDF plinth with large floor coupling spikes, giving stability to ensure well-controlled bass performance and further enhancing stereo imaging. Additionally, the spikes can be adjusted from above the plinth allowing easier leveling of the speaker. Hidden magnetic fixings allow the grille to be removed with ease for the best listening experience, while the award-winning F501 and F502 include these fixings to the rear of the cabinet, providing a neat storage solution when in use. Each cabinet is crafted using real wood veneers and is available in a variety of finishes.

Point Source Technology

Fyne Audio’s proprietary IsoFlare™ design ensures constant directivity of the wavefront generated, providing outstanding stereo imaging, even off-axis. Furthermore, a smooth and extended response is delivered thanks to the highly rigid titanium high-frequency diaphragm which pushes the break-up mode well above the level of human hearing.

BassTrax™ Port System

The bookshelf and floor-standing models employ an internal, downwards-firing port system. Below the port, a Tractrix profile diffuser converts plain wave port energy to a spherical 360-degree wavefront, integrating energy uniformly into the room. This clever design ensures that the loudspeaker is less critical of room positioning.

Crossover

Low-loss, laminated core inductors and audiophile-grade polypropylene capacitors are used exclusively throughout the F500 series crossovers. The result is an exceptionally clean signal path and very low crossover losses, ensuring the very best in detail resolution and musical communication.

Home Theatre

The F500 range is as impressive with movies as it is with music. Fyne Audio’s point source driver technology is ideal for articulating the finest of movie detail with pinpoint accuracy. High efficiency and high-power handling means the F500 series delivers an incredibly dynamic and lifelike performance whether you are listening to vinyl or high-resolution digital audio

Floor-standing Model 1: F501 Floorstanding Speakers
Floor-standing Model 2: F502 Floorstanding Speakers

The F300 Series

Premium Performance and modest price.

The price may be entry-level but the F300 loudspeaker models range benefits from the very best technical and acoustic expertise in the industry. Offering an award-winning scale of specification and audiophile performance unrivaled at its price, the line-up provides versatility for music lovers or movie enthusiasts.

Exceptional rigidity is provided on all F300 models through a combination of MDF panels which are cross-braced internally. The additional stiffness is achieved by coupling the low-frequency driver’s magnet to the cabinet bracing using a resonant absorbing mastic. Widening the footprint on the floor standing models, using a plinth with floor coupling spikes, provides stability for tight bass and accurate stereo imaging.

High-quality, precision components are used within the crossover, including a low-loss LF laminated core inductor and HF polypropylene capacitor. The gold-plated speaker terminals ensure a clean signal path and the top of the range F303 has bi-wire terminals fitted to further enhance performance.

Constructed with a multi-fiber paper cone on the bass/midrange unit, the F300 driver is enhanced with our FyneFlute technology. Used on the driver’s roll rubber surround, it provides a non-homogeneous interface that very effectively terminates cone energy.

The tweeter combines a powerful Neodymium magnet system with a 25mm Polyester dome, producing crisp and controlled high-frequency detail. Integrated within the protective mesh cover is a phase loss compensator that delays the output from specific areas of the dome to give a smooth and extended response.

The F300 Series is the perfect choice for those looking for premium performance at a modest price.
