overview

The RINJANI is a 2.5-way floor standing speaker kit built with top-line SATORI drivers. Each speaker is equipped with two SATORI 6.5” Papyrus cone midwoofers and the famous SATORI TW29R Ring-dome tweeter.

Mount Rinjani is a breathtakingly beautiful active volcano on the island of lombok, Indonesia. The volcano is known to display dramatic eruptions with plumes of lava and ash. The RINJANI kit is designed to deliver transparent and dynamic sound reproduction.

The RINJANI’s faceted baffle is specially designed to reduce high frequency diffraction and yields superb imaging qualities. A further 7⁰ reclined cabinet ensures time alignment resulting in sublime staging and pin point placement in instruments. The quality crossover lives in it’s own sealed chamber in the bottom of the speaker with a sharp incline to diminish standing waves.

The cabinet is masterfully crafted from 18 mm MDF with internal bracing to distribute cabinet vibrations and lower sound coloration. Unwanted reflections are minimized by wedge shaped inner rear walls. The RINJANI also has dual ports at the back to distribute port resonance evenly and lower compression.

For a smaller speaker with similar design goals look to the ARA and ARA Be which are the over achieving siblings of the great RINJANI.
