Magico made its previous generation of loudspeaker cabinets using combinations of metal and wood, whereas Magico's current-generation models are all made of metal. Not surprisingly . . .
. . . Magico's new facility is home to an impressive machine shop housing five multi-axis CNC machines.
Magico manufactures most of the loudspeaker parts in-house. This photo shows the raw "pucks" for a portion of a Q7 footer.
The pucks are then transformed to footers in the CNC lathe.
The top portion of the finished Q7 footers.
The machined S5 top plates shown in the photo above . . .
. . . start out looking far less finished.
Toward the end of finishing, bolt holes are drilled and then tapped.
The completed S5 top plate ready for final finishing.
The termination piece for the Ultimate III's rear rails.
Like the S5 top plate, a cabinet wall for a QSub 15 . . .
. . . starts out completely unfinished, but is transformed in the CNC machine.
This much metalwork creates a lot of waste material, but . . .
. . . all the metal filings are gathered, grouped, and recycled.
